The Sandcastle Water Park is one of the many amazing attractions in Blackpool.

With all of its slides and pools it’s easy to have a fun time.

Some our favourites are the Master Blaster and Aztec Falls.

This amazing place is the UK’s largest indoor water park.

It is one of the top five water parks in the UK.

The water park is located on the promenade, South Beach, Blackpool.

It opened in 1968 on the site of the former South Shore open air baths.

There are many different slides there and here are our reviews:

n Duelling Dragons is exhilarating from the moment you climb up the stairs to the moment you get out the pool.

n Thunder Falls: Thunder Falls is fast and monstrous, it’s amazing when you’re whizzing down the slides.

n Aztec Falls is a fast and amazing slide from the start to the end, our favourite part is when you go down the plug hole backwards.

n Monster Zoomer: Zooming, whizzing on your knees through a small, white tunnel.

n Side Winder: Up, down, round and round you start at the top and end at the bottom zooming and spinning.

n Master Blaster: It is thrilling from the moment it starts.

to the moment it has ended. This is a great place to bring your loved ones and friends we enjoy it and we hope that if you go you’ll enjoy it too!
