While most people probably aren’t even aware that there are five water parks on our little island, you may be surprised to know that they can offer you the perfect weekend trip; promising not to leave you Thirsty 4 Water!
So, here are five watery wonders of the United Kingdom:
Found near Stoke on Trent in Staffordshire, Waterworld welcomes both children and adults to enjoy some of the most exciting water rides in the United Kingdom. With weekend passes from as little as £7.49, you’ll find that a day out at Waterworld will actually be cheaper than most other local attractions; not bad considering that Waterworld is the UK’s #1 indoor water park!
Of course, if you’re looking for somewhere to host your child’s birthday party then the great news is that Waterworld also provide birthday parties along with Aqua disco’s and many other events!

2. Wet ‘N’ Wild

With a Double Twister Flume, Wave Canyon and Black Hole amongst other rides, you can rest assured that your children won’t be found bored during their time at Wet ‘N’ Wild.

3. Sandcastle Waterpark
Conveniently located by the sea itself, the Blackpool based water park serves as one of the town’s largest tourist attractions and features over eighteen white knuckle slides and attractions.
Though tickets are a little pricier, with prices varying around the £10 mark, you can be assured that your children will take with them memories that they are never sure to forget.
Of course, much like the other two parks, Sandcastle also offer birthday parties and group facilities.

4. Splashdown Quaywest
One of the greatest outdoor waterparks in the United Kingdom, Splashdown Quaywest is found on the breaches of the sea itself and offers riders some of the most spectacular (and brief) views of the English Riviera.
With spectacular tire rides, devilish rides that are designed to put even the most daring of riders to their limit; you’ll find yourself struggling to tear the children away from one of the most exciting places on the South coast.
With all day admissions for as little as £12.30 and two hour admissions for £9.80, there’s no reason not to spend all day in the park.

5. Alton Towers Water Park
One of the largest theme parks in the world and definitely number one on our list, the Alton Towers Water Park, otherwise known as Cariba Creek or Splash Landings is quite possibly one of the greatest parks found in Europe.
Though the tickets are quite expensive, and the highest rates out of the five parks, you can save 10% of this by booking online in advance. As well as the usual birthday parties and package deals, you can also partake in the ‘heroic lifeguard courses’ which a great for children to learn about water safety!
