Splashtacular Water Parks
Time to get wet and wild at one of these amazing waterparks!
Splashdown Quaywest, Devon
Fancy a trip to Splashdown Quaywest, the UK's LARGEST outdoor water park?
With a "Slide Guide" including the likes of ‘Devil's Drop’ (the highest and fastest flume in the UK!), ‘The Screamer’ and ‘Wild Kamikaze’, you know you’re in for an adrenaline-packed day at this terrific waterpark. Splashdown Quaywest offers a choice of 8 slides, varying from a 65ft nearly vertical drop into a black hole(!) to a toddler friendly pool with a maximum depth of 0.5m. This aqua park has something for all ages and every thrill-seeker level.
Prefer to spectate rather than participate? Don’t worry, there’s a large swimming area to paddle and soak up the sun and watch all the terrified faces as they take on the ‘severe’ slides!
You're in for a flumin' great family day out in Devon at this water park.
Prices: Prime time prices £16pp.

Splashdown Poole, Dorset
Splashdown Poole is home to 13 exhilarating indoor and outdoor flume rides and three under 5's splash zones.
This aqua park offers slides with varying degrees of thrill; easy, medium and severe. This is perfect for anyone dipping their toe (literally) into the world of water parks for the first time. And with flumes named ‘The Screamer’ (a popular water-slide moniker it seems), ‘Baron's Revenge’ and ‘Dragon's Lair’, you’re bound to have fun.
For the less adventurous, head over to the ‘Captain’s Cove’ where a relaxing time can be had in the Jacuzzi and bubble bench.
Don’t forget to ride ‘Infinity’; a high speed drop, with funky laser lights and your own choice of music to play while you plunge into oblivion. Sounds like fun, right?
Prices: Prime time prices £16pp.
