The Rides at Sandcastle Waterpark
The Sandcastle Waterpark rides are simply amazing and the waterpark features over 18 slides and attractions including water slides, fun pools, a wave machine, water chutes, a burger bar, snack bars, arcades, swim shop and much much more.
The Sandcastle Waterpark Blackpool slides are so fun. My daughter loved the Masterblaster slide, the UK’s largest water slide which you ride on using a rubber ring.
We loved the hyperzone white knuckle rides. They were so fast and fun to ride and will leave you wanting to return over and over again.
Facilities at Sandcastle Waterpark
The one thing that attracted me to Sandcastle Waterpark in addition to the water slides and features is the fact the pool is totally accessible for people with disabilities and special needs. In fact, we were able to book in advance and arrange a poolside changing facility.
This is perfect for anyone with additional needs and has an adult size changing table, special wheelchairs and a disabled toilet.
After getting changed we were able to use special wrist band lockers and find a table next to the pool for towels and resting. The Sandcastle Waterpark has a large dining area, where you can purchase meals from the menu.
The Wavepool at Blackpool Waterpark
My family really enjoyed spending time in the wave pool at the Waterpark. The wave pool comes on every fifteen minutes. This was Sylvia’s first time in a wave pool and she absolutely loved it.
We also enjoyed heading to the water fountain and having a mini massage as the water poured from the rocks.
After the wave pool, we made our way to the queue for the UK’s largest water slide the Masterblaster. The Masterblaster is a huge slide which you ride on using a rubber ring.
There is always a queue and so we queued when it was not so busy and managed to get on the ride in a reasonable amount of time.
The whole family loved the master blaster. It was fast and fun and a great ride to try out.
There are lots of fantastic rides and we didn’t have time to try them all out but when we come back we will try the Aztec Falls Slide and the Montazooma.
The kids were keen to try out a whole range of water slides. They particularly loved the yellow and blue thunder falls water slides.
We were able to go on this one together and Sylvia screamed the whole way down with joy.
Sylvia also loved the duelling dragons and the Tree Top Water Chutes which are great for younger children.
What We Thought Of Sandcastle Waterpark!
I love that Sandcastle Waterpark has some fun and exciting areas. We particularly loved the Ushi Gushi River Creek, which has a current that drags you around. We had so much fun and you could literally spend hours at the waterpark having lots of fun, eating and chilling out as a family.
One of the best things at the waterpark has to be the Caribbean Storm Treehouse. This is an area with lots of waterfall action.
There is a huge coconut which tips water down and it was really really fun. I thought I’d share a video so you can see exactly what I am describing. We loved this area and it was super fun.
The Sea Breeze Spa
We enjoyed our time at the Sandcastle Waterpark. We are going to return again in future as there is so much more to discover. In fact, John and I would love to check out the Sea Breeze Spa at some point.
The Spa is for adults 18 plus and includes a Sauna and Steam Room, an Ice feature, heated lounges, foot spa’s and Aromatherapy and salt Inhalation rooms.
I think this would be a fantastic idea for a future date for me and John. We live 40 minutes away from Blackpool and I can’t wait to return and check the spa out! Now that will be fun.
Visit the Sandcastle Waterpark for a Fun Day Out in Blackpool
We had a fantastic time at Sandcastle Waterpark and I would totally recommend this place. I have lived in New Zealand and been to the most popular waterparks over there.
I have to be honest, Sandcastle Waterpark in Blackpool is the best one I have ever been to. We will certainly be returning again and If I have any family visiting from overseas, I will be recommending this as a must visit a hot spot.
