We've invested £16 million to create an amazing subtropical environment with nearly 3,000 square metres of water, making it one of the UKs largest water parks. 

It features one of the tallest waterslides in Europe measuring more that seven storeys high! Not forgetting our outside Splash Fountains carefully choreographed through colourful lights and music. 

Whatever the weather outside, state of the art air-conditioning will guarantee a beautifully warm temperature. Our biggest pool redevelopment for a decade boasts three new flumes, a wave pool, tots pool, rapids, a whirlpool, rope tunnels – and even a DJ booth!

  • Vortex Fast Flume - Adrenaline Factor 5/5 Zoom down our 60ft high winding vortex slide, which will send you spinning into its giant bowl, plunging you into the waters below.
