Waterworld is an indoor tropical aqua park based mostly in Stoke-on-Trent and final weekend we visited as a household of 4 taking three kids aged 3, 10 and 13. Anybody who has kids with massive age gaps like this can perceive the battle of discovering a day trip or attraction that not solely meets everybody’s wants however that can be doable with just one or two adults. I couldn’t wait to see if Waterworld would meet our necessities.
What’s at Waterworld
Waterworld is dwelling to
14 various kinds of slides (some with 2 or 3 so you may experience facet by facet)
Outside pool (seasonal)
Interactive jungle home for smaller kids
Based mostly on the above I used to be actually hopeful that this is able to work for all three kids and I’m so happy to say that it undoubtedly did. There was one thing for everybody with quick slides and a wave pool for the older ones and a devoted toddler are for the three yr outdated. However what I discovered even higher was that the way in which Waterworld has been designed implies that it’s compact (with out feeling small) in order a dad or mum you’re feeling you may allow you to older, competent swimmers go off on their very own to experience the slides with out worrying they may get misplaced as a result of in all places is fairly seen and you may simply find them once more.
One other of my issues was whether or not or not Waterworld might preserve all 3 kids entertained for a good period of time or if the three yr outdated can be bored and chilly after an hour. I’m comfortable to report that each one three of my kids stayed in for simply in need of 4 hours and all three would have fortunately stayed in longer, nonetheless we wanted to hit the street to succeed in our subsequent cease, Alton The Star campsite, for glamping weekend.
The eagerness of the youngsters to remain in for therefore lengthy made the value of £22 per individual appear way more affordable too.
The Younger Swimmers Space
The best way the youthful kids’s space has been designed is good as there’s a lot for the them to do. There are three normal open slides the place they climb the steps and slide all the way down to the pool the place you may maintain them, see them or information them as you see match, then there’s the Interactive Jungle Home which is a constructed up space that appears like an indoor play space with a secret hidden tunnel, hanging ropes over the water and two bigger sliders for these which can be somewhat extra adventurous. These explicit slides are tunnel slides and look extra just like the water slides you count on in an aqua park and require your youngster to be a bit extra unbiased as they a lot slide alone. Throughout from this space there’s a further slide that’s barely steeper however nonetheless not too quick and lands within the pool however you may attain the kid always and maintain there hand if wanted.
This childen’s space alone is fab for little ones however the enjoyable doesn’t cease there as with grownup supervision they’ll nonetheless entry the principle space of the pool, together with the wave pool (as much as a sure level) they usually can experience 4 of the large slides if sitting on an adults knee.
With all of those choices the three yr outdated was simply as comfortable to remain within the water because the older two who have been spoilt for selection with so many slides to select from and who rushed to the wave pool each time the klaxon sounded.
The primary slides
The 2 older boys (10, 13) tried each slide in Waterworld and guaranteed me that they have been all good. The 2 clear favourites have been the Cyclone and Thunderbolt. The Cyclone requires riders to be a minimal peak of 1.2m and is classed as a thrill experience. It takes you thru a tunnel that leaves the aqua park, travels across the exterior of the constructing and re-enters once more. The Thunderbolt requires riders to be 1.4 meters and is classed as an adrenaline experience as you enter the experience and get up straight after which the ground beneath you is eliminated and also you drop into the slide – it’s not for the faint hearted!

So, to reply the query “Is Waterworld price a go to? “The reply is a convincing sure, it doesn’t matter what age your kids are if they’re a fan of swimming, water slides or love an adrenalin rush then get your self some tickets for what we will solely describe as an superior household day trip!
