Starting with number 10 we have the Blue Lagoon water park in Pembrokeshire. This is a fantastic indoor waterpark that is open all year round with tropical temperatures so no matter what the weather, it’s a great choice. You’ll find a Lazy River, Waves, Indoor and Outdoor Hot Tubs, a cove for little ones to explore and lots of refreshments available.
Ninth is Waterworld in Stoke on Trent. This water park features a 4 lane family multi slide, Twister, an assault course, the Black Hole, The Python, Rapids, an outdoor pool, the Space Bowl and much more! With so much to offer it is no wonder this indoor water park attracts over 400,000 visitors a year!
Splashdown water park is based in Poole and is eighth on our top 10 water parks in the UK. There’s something for everyone here with the ‘Screamer’ or ‘Black Thunder’ for the thrill seekers or the ‘Red River Roller’ for those who like things a little slower. The younger kids can go on the starter flumes, in Buccaneer Bay or in the shallow splash pool depending on how brave they’re feeling. Splashdown water park is open all year as half the park is indoor and half outdoor.
Seventh place goes to Sandcastle Waterpark in Blackpool. This water park is one of Blackpool’s biggest tourist attractions and features over 18 slides and attractions including wave machines, the lazy river, Duelling Dragons, Monkey Island and the Master Blaster. This water park is open nearly all year round so offers months of soaking wet fun!
At number six, all the way from the Alps, Alpamare Scarborough is a waterpark like no other. If you love adventure, it’s time to experience the biggest, the fastest, the wettest, the warmest, the cleanest, the waviest, the newest, the funnest, the most unlike-any-waterpark-you’ve-seen before waterpark. Choose from the gigantic wave pool, warm outdoor garden pool, Splash and Play area or stunning outdoor infinity pool. Plus four exhilarating state-of-the-art long water rides will take your breath away and give you the adrenaline ride of your life.
Wet ‘n’ Wild, South Shields is definitely worth fifth place in the top ten. Test your nerve with Kamikaze, the UK’s fastest water ride – will you dare to push yourself off the 80-foot nearly vertical drop? Or how about the Abyss – it’s in the dark, but there’s space in the inflatables for two, so at least you’ll be able to hold onto someone’s hand.
In fourth, Splashdown Quaywest, Paignton (the sister of the Poole Park aforementioned) is Britain’s largest water park! Plus you get fab views of the English Riviera from the top of the rides! The Devil’s Drop is a vertical extravaganza, and Wild Kamikaze will see you clinging to the edge of your tyre. When you get tired, you’ll be right by the beach too – bonus!
Splash Waterworld in Butlins is number 3. Combine your holiday with fantastic water park facilities at these Butlins parks – Minehead, Skegness and Bognor Regis. There is, of course, something to please everyone in the family, from soothing lazy rivers and kids splash pools, to fast and fun rides for your thrill seekers.
Second best place to take the kids this summer holiday has to be Lymington Sea Water Baths. This fully staffed 110m seawater pool is wall-to-wall watery fun! Start with the 12m inflatable obstacle course to see if you can make it off the other side without falling in! There are water zorbs and stand up paddleboards as well as kayaks and a bit of aqua jousting. You can be sure the kids will sleep well after a day here.
Alton Towers Water Park is our number 1 water park in the UK. Here there are hundreds of interactive water features from lazy rivers to bubbly pools to tree houses to water roller coasters! There are loads of snack bars and restaurants to keep your busy family full and if you want to make a weekend of it there’s a hotel onsite that have themes such as the Splash Landings Hotel that makes you feel like you’re in the Caribbean and overlooks the water park! We voted this water park number one in the UK!
