  • Hi just wanted to say what a great time we had at the park on Thursday! We came with our two children, our 4 year old son is Autistic and just wanted to let you know how impressed we were with the facilities and helpfulness of the staff. Having use of a poolside wet room was really useful and made things a lot easier. We would definitely come back if we ever return to Blackpool! Thank you!
  • Excellent venue. Worth every penny aside from the food. The staff are friendly and helpful. The facilities were clean, but the water was a little bit dirty. The water wasn't terribly bad though. The slides were excellent. There's a good range of slides to choose from. There are life guards dotted everywhere to ensure everybody is safe. The master blaster slide (The longest one) is a little dangerous as I spun around and ended up going backwards, which was scary, I ended up with red marks on my back, my shorts close to coming off and numerous minor injuries to my backside. At the end I levitated off the slide and really hurt my rear end. I think they need to address the issue as it's moderately dangerous. I spent 7+ hours here yesterday. The let down was the food, it was okay, but not worth the pay.
  • Great swimming fun pools but very busy. Lots on offer along with bigger attractions if you are willing to pay a little more. Locals can get a discount if you can provide proof of address.
  • Yeah brilliant venue. Paid a local price. And we thought it was a bargain. Facilities were clean, plenty of life guards always visible. Some say the "lazy river" isn't very lazy but it's not advertised as a lazy river. The slides are awesome. The roller coaster slide is bloody brilliant. Will attend again.
  • Big indoor water park with really nice slides. Well maintained. Staff is taking good precautions for safety of customers. Wristbands are chargeable, so you don't need any cash. On busy days are long queues, especially for the highlights, but it's worth it!
