I have been coming to the Sandcastle for many many years as a child myself and with my own child. It used to be a great day out. The water is warm and there is lots to do. Lots of lifeguards on duty. The place could be so much better. The negatives are that it's now tired and dated, lots... More

I was massively impressed with the Sandcastle. Clean and well maintained, great friendly service from the staff, fab rides and well laid out changing facilities. Got a tad too busy later on, so glad we arrived early doors.

We used our annual pass so we could que jump, saving 30mins of queing this can be as much as 2 hours peak season. We also load cash onto our writband, saving going back and forth to the changing rooms. Food is a little pricey, but only about 20% more than highstreet prices, there is some deals and offers to...

Went to sandcastle with my wife and two teenage kids. Good experience for those who want to swim and go on white knuckle slides. £11.50 to watch??? O!M!G! Took the edge off what could've been a good day.

This was our first visit to Blackpool and the Water Park. We had a great time and would go again. Due to the time of year we went we did not have to wait in any long queues, there was plenty of room in the pools and changing facilities weren't over crowded. All of the staff from reception to the... More

The kids loved it but I thought at the price of £38,50 would have got more only 2 small rides for the younger ones to go on!
