“Too crowded etc..”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Booked online which hardly saved anything but beats long wait at the door. As others say it is unacceptable to pay extra for slides in a waterpark with already steep entrance fees. By 12 our eyes were really stinging & looking down you could see the water was dirty & cloudier than at 10.30 so goodness knows what it was like later as people piling in midday. Queues for rides about 40 mins so by this point decided to leave & enjoy the rest of the day.

“Rip off Britain”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Rip off Britain at its best! £19.50 for each of the kids to go in the waterpark, and then they wanted another £8.50 each for parents to sit and watch!! The kids had a great time but outrageous price!

“Great Time with the family and will defo return”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Just got back from the Sandcastle and had a great day with our lad (he's 4 yr old). Pre booked online for £32.50, this allowed us to skip a que as well but there wasn't one when we arrived. I would recommend you have a few £0.50ps with you for lockers because They are pretty small.

Plenty for My lad to do, he could go on any of the hyperzone rides due to height, although I think paying an extra £6.00 to go on the extra slides is a bit of a rip off.

We eat at the sandcastle and I thought the food was ok for burger n chips? Cost me about £18 to feed the three of us.

The mrs used the spa and thought it was worth the money as well

Would defiantly recommend and will be back

“Over Rated & Over Priced”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

I am sure this is a great day out for young children but not for young adults or groups of adults. The places smells completely funky ! Admission charges are ridiculous.

“Hours of Fun”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We have been coming to Blackpool for years and my children are now perfect ages for them to go on flumes together and have the enjoyment of more than just a swimming pool. There is something for everyone, whether you want to just relax and or have a gentle swim or you have 18 great flumes to choose from. We booked on the arrival as we knew the day we were going - this is definitely the route to go down. Every morning when the swimming opens they are queued out the door, but if you book online they have a separate desk for those bookings which allows you just to 'check in' and away you go. A brilliant day out for all the family.
