Owner description: Splashdown Waterpark is a great day out for family and friends. There’s something for everyone – from big kids to little ones – with some of the UK’s most exciting waterflumes.For the thrill-seekers, brave the Screamer with its sheer vertical drop. Plunge into darkness on the Black Thunder. And hold on to your pants as you shoot down the Spacebowl like a human pinball. Or if that sounds a bit like hard work, just go with the flow on the Mississippi Drifter.There’s the fabulous Little Buccaneers SplashZone with a starter flume, water play area and Buccaneer Bay, our toddler swimming pool. And, on a hot summer’s day, Buccaneer Beach is the perfect spot for a splash with the little ones. There’s even somewhere to play for little landlubbers.We’re open all year with indoor rides in the winter. In the spring, we take the slide outside where the Mississippi pours into the Grand Canyon. And, in May, bring on the awesome Screamer Tower – it’s fluming good fun! What are you waiting for?

If you love flume rides then this is a great place! Outdoors was still open in halfterm October so even better!
Buy the All Day tickets - for a couple of quid extra - the 2 hr tickets aren't long enough!

Visited on a rainy day. Was very very busy. The whole place looks very tired and in need of refurbishment. The lifeguards were on the whole not particularly observant and certainly didn't give the impression of being interested in what they were supposed to be doing. The children's pools were hidden away from the slides and one didn't have any external windows. The whole place could do with a good deep clean.

Plenty of slides for all desires, and fairly well labelled in terms of intensity. It is worth a visit on a wet day. The queues took a while, which was frustrating when you are on a 2 hour limit. The pool for little ones was small and more like a very heavy chlorinated foot bath in a soft place. Very tired and not clean looking. My biggest complaint would be the lack of attention by the lifeguards - watched one sat on the phone for some time, others day dreaming, just not paying attention - an accident waiting to happen!
The children enjoyed themselves though and like I say worth a visit - just stay with them!

Great fun but you spend more time in queues than on slides
Cafe was ok
Maybe avoiding peak times could be worth a try
Parking is bad, Like trying to find a needle

Good day out. Tip is to get there early so you can have the run of the slides, lots of fun to have and its not overly cheap but I think its worth it. New slide velocity is very lively next to the screamer on the outside bit.Always have a fun day with the kids. Love the doughnuts and barons revenge. queuing can be a pain at busy times so go early on Sunday morning before lunch is good then savour one of the may eateries on site, massive choice food paradise
