Keeping the kids entertained over the summer months can seem like a stressful and laborious task, which is why we've come to the rescue with some of the top water parks in the UK for you to visit this summer!

Calypso Cove Water Park
Barnsley, Yorkshire

This fantastic pirate themed indoor water park is located within Barnsley Metrodome Leisure Complex, and features 3 fun-packed flumes including Eruption with a 5 star bravery rating for those more daring family members; you’ll be sliding down into the belly of a volcano, and spewed out into the pool below! For a more family friendly flume there’s Kraken, where you can even choose one of your favourite songs to play on your way down! There are 4 pools and an additional 5 slides within the park so there’s something for even the littlest of swimmers, and you can even walk the plank at the diving pool. The perfect water park for pirate lovers all year round!

The Blue Lagoon Water Park
Bluestone National Park Resort, Pembrokeshire

You can find something for all ages at the indoor Blue Lagoon Waterpark at Bluestone Resort, and you don’t have to be staying there to join in the fun! The park has 4 speedy flumes that weave their way outside. The Falls is an open flume that takes you out into the open then re-enters Blue Lagoon into a plunge pool, so watch out if you’re scared of heights! The Blue Lagoon Wave Pool is another fantastic feature of this park, with six different wave patterns next to their indoor beach there’s endless fun for the whole family. There’s plenty of exploring to be done in the pirate’s shipwreck Torrwr Mor, and even the little ones are in for a special treat with a small cove set away from the waves where they can hunt rock pools! If you want to make the most of the summer sun then you don’t have to stay inside, a lazy river will take you out to the patio where you’ll find a bubble pool and spa pool, so whether it’s a family day out or relaxing time with friends, there’s something for everyone at Blue Lagoon Waterpark!

Sandcastle Waterpark
Blackpool, Lancashire

Why not take a trip to the UKs largest indoor waterpark this summer? Sandcastle Waterpark features over 18 slides and attractions including MasterBlaster the world’s longest indoor rollercoaster waterslide at a whopping 250 metres in length! MasterBlaster propels your raft at high speeds up steep inclines and down great chasms for an amazing adventure. The Treetops Water Chutes and Duelling Dragons flumes mean you can race your friends to the finish line in some of their great slides. It’s not all for kids though; adults can visit the Sea Breeze Spa for saunas, steam rooms and aromatherapy, or even book the VIP Tiki Cabana where you’ll get your own hot tub, TV, mini bar and much more! This fantastic waterpark is a great way to entertain the entire family whatever the weather!

Windsor, Berkshire

A water park set amongst all of the fun LEGOLAND has to offer, what more could you want? Their fantastic water play area in DUPLO® Valley means toddlers can play with all of their favourite animal friends, spraying water all over the place at the Splash Safari. You can even visit the UK’s largest water play structure, Drench Towers, for a guaranteed soaking! The kids will love waiting for the oversized brick above the park to pour water down on them, and there’s plenty of colourful slides and climbing frames to keep them entertained, too! So don’t forget to take swimwear if you visit LEGOLAND this summer, as there’s some serious splashing to be done!

Set amongst all of the fantastic facilities this complex has to offer, the leisure pool has some brilliant features for all the family, with flumes and water cannons that are sure to keep the kids entertained. You can enjoy the Castaway Spa Pool with bubbles and jets in Palm Tree Springs for ultimate relaxation, or if it’s excitement you’re after then the Crazy River with waves and slides is just for you! There are also some great features for the little ones, including a Seahorse Squirter! So whatever your age or ability, there’s something for you at Colchester Leisure World.
