  • Remember coming here as a kid and just as much fun now. We arrived as it open and so had no problems with queuing. Slides were great fun, and enjoyed the easy environment. Staff were friendly, didn't ...  more »
  • Great Fun, the water slides have so much variety, personally, I don't like the vertical drop slides, but you have those, but you also have more rides less extreme.  more »
  • Not been for about 10 years. We went on a Wednesday morning. Very quiet. Went with the wife as we both like waterparks. We enjoyed ourselves. Definitely more for teenagers although there's a great pla...  more »

  • Fantastic. I had a great time. Not for the timid. We went for the 6 hour session from 11-5. I was glad I did because as a first time person I don't think I could have done everything in 2 hours. I noticed in May half term that a lot of people went home at 5 so you could have a wonderful time in the cheaper evening sessions because there was no queue. There is NO swimming pool but there is a cafe, outdoor loungers, an out door sitting area. If you have a family from 7-21 who like swimming this would be a great day out that would suit them all. Your children must be able to confidently swim. There are toddlers areas, the most popular with the adults is the bubble pool. I saw quite a few parents sitting reading while their kids played in a safe fun environment. After there are a lot of meal choices in the area including a Tesco for those on a budget and a movie theater. Special note they weren't able to cater for my weird diet BUT we did buy other food so the cafe was happy for me to eat my egg free, wheat free, gluten free, dairy free lunch. Will be going back again.
  • I loved Splashdown as it is very fun and has a wide variety of flumes and slides that target people between the age of 7-16. However there is no place for the adults to go so they can watch their younger children, other than the cafe. We have not been able to find any information on when the outdoor slides open and it would be useful if we could.
  • We went there a family of four. Kids loved it and ran up and down wanting to try all the slides as much as possible, but I do think there is not much else to do for adults. There is one type of Jacuzzi, but when it gets busy it's not very likely you will get a place in it. So basically it's great place for older children who can go on their own, or adults who love slides. Also I kept checking our bank account to see if the deposit for the wrist bands was returned, and I don't think we ever got it back. It was fun, and we will probably return just because it's the closest water park, but I've definitely been to much better ones.
  • Absolutely fabulous family day out. Fantastic flumes and crazy rides. Worth the journey from London today
  • Been here couple of times already and with the best intentions of comming back in the future. Easy to find and access. Plenty of dining solutions outside to chose from. Splashdown itself not big but surely entertaining and lots of fun for your little ones. Plenty of supervision and actually reacting to horse play and youngsters running around so small children are safe and the place is well maintained. Definitely worth visiting and for the price - really good day out with the family.

Where to stay in Poole

Consider renting an apartment inside a redeveloped warehouse in Poole's quay. This area is full of attractions and views over the port, where boats leave for cruises to nearby islands. The town center and the harbor are near each other, and lodging is available in both areas.
