Some of the UK's most exciting flume rides and some of the South Devon's most spectacular views, and right next to Goodrington Beach, Paignton, Devon at the heart of the English Riviera.Try the heart stopping plummet the Devil's Drop and terrifically tumbling tyre rides, some will have you hanging onto the edge of your tyre, literally, and the Wild Kamikaze - well the name says it all! If that sounds a bit too much like hard work have a bit o a dip in the swimming pool and a laze on a sun-bed and just check out that view over South Devon's beautiful Tor Bay.Younger kids can get in the swim too with Submarine Splash and Tiddler's Fun Pool - a perfect place for little ones to enjoy a good old splash about.Want more than the waterpark? Some people do you know! Goodrington Sands, a stone's throw from the door and a great place to visit, sand to play on and rockpools to discover at low tide and loads more.A great new restaurant The View at Goodrington is open after normal waterpark hours is fab place to relax with the family in the evening. A super indoor space for eating but absolutely stunning tables outdoors when the weather's good, over looking some of the English Riviera's stunning scenery. Choose from all you can eat pizza, pasta and salad buffet and wide selection of main courses and super ice cream sundae menu. Licensed Bar too. « less
