We spent 3 hours in the sansdcastle waterpark with my 5 and 7 years olds and thorughly enjoyed it. They are good swimmers but not over confident so the inflatable rings on offer were great for them. Whilst it was busy (it is Summer holidays) there was plenty of slides we could go on and not have to queue too... More

good day, but too many people inside. Drinks and food too expensive, lots of queues because of too many people in, but kids all loved it. get your tickets at the tourist information office it is cheaper and quicker to get in .

We had pre booked online, and arrived at 9am to avoid the queues. We managed to go on all the hyper zone rides at least twice by 10am. Yes it got busy, but there were spare tables all around us all day. By lunch time the queues for the rides were getting longer, but we had done them all so... More

As a large family group we decided to pre-book the Sandcastle Waterpark on line prior to our visit to Blackpool. We are so pleased we did as you are guaranteed entry although we didn't realise this initially. The queue was relentless unless you had an e ticket and I am sure some people could be disappointed and not get in... More

Loved the sandcastle when I was a kid & it first opened :) went back when my son was small but haven't been since! Looks like a lot has changed for the better. Must come back again & try the new things :)

Certainly will not be visiting this attraction again. Paid for 2 adults and a child only to get in and realise that all the main slides needed further payment!? Absolute disgraceful that they are ripping people off this way. Also we only stayed an hour as it was far to crowded, literally no space in the pools. The numbers need... More

My boys love Sandcastle for the slides /rapids & wave machine & I thoroughly enjoyed the spa area but thought it could of squeezed in a jacuzzi for us mums at some point. Gotta say I find all the rides exciting apart from the sidewinder that looks scary, Would recommend booking online as the queues were huge, would recommend you... More
