Blackpool Sandcastle Waterpark - 20 rarely seen photos reveal how different it looked inside when it first opened in the 80s

The Sandcastle has evolved over the years and these archive photos remind us how it all looked in the early days.

It started out with just a couple of slides and the wave pool being the largest attractions. It had flamingos, palm trees, terraces and that all important constant temperature of 84 degrees. Most of that is still there but its changed so much inside adding in 18 water slides and numerous other exciting attractions. Can you remember those early days at the Sandcastle? The photos are from the 80s and 90s
