Entered the place at 10.30, dedicated desk for internet bookings with all correct details made check in quick and seemless. Staff were vigilant, and attended incidents quickly and decisively - I witnessed 2 1st aid incidents being dealt with very quickly. And while i was in the spa a group of 13-14 yr old lads managed to get in so... More

Great day out for all the family especially the slides and wave pool. There are 18 rides/slides all together but 4 of them are on the big package which is an extra £6/7 per person

We went to this water park with our granddaughter on a rainy day. Our biggest mistake was not booking on-line prior to our visit. If it's a wet day, whether weekend or week-day, please book before you go. We queued for almost 2 hrs! The staff were extremely good, bringing umbrellas then drinks for the kids, then sweets. But if... More

We usually book our tickets online but didnt do this time as we were wanting to do both the waterpark and pleasure beach on seperate days depending on the weather. so it was a wet day and decided sandcastles first. Couldn't believe the queues... terrible i an understatement. I understand that there were queues because of the weather but honestly... More

We visited the water park on Sunday and after planning to spend many hours there we left after 90 minutes as the whole area was packed out. Capacity is about 1,600 people which is unbearable with young children. Then you have the prices to enter which you would think a bit expensive for a water park in the UK. Unfortunately... More

I came with my partner and his two children (aged 4 and 9) as it was pouring down and this seemed the best option for keeping the boys happy. It was really busy, which was to be expected as it's the school holidays. However, there was still room in the pools to have a splash around. Queuing up for the... More

Fantastic! My daughters loved it! Stayed in there for 5 hours and slept well that night! Highly recommend and worth queuing for. If you queue for too long they give you free sweets and drinks and if it's raining and the queues outside they give you umbrellas!! You cannot visit Blackpool and not go here - it's fantastic!
