Our SplashWorld hotels offer up a break from the norm, in that each one grants you free entry to a first-rate waterpark. Better yet, you can ride the slides as often as you like.

Only The Best Waterparks

  • no-image

    Slides At Your Fingertips

    Some parks are within the grounds of the hotels, others are close by – and by that we mean you can walk to it or we’ll lay on a free shuttle bus to get you there. And while each park is different, you can expect to be lining up for some of the best rides going.

    Tried And Tested By Us

    We take waterparks pretty seriously and won’t add any old place to the SplashWorld books – only the best parks make the grade. And we try out all the rides, slides and splash zones first-hand. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it…

    Around-the-world Destinations

    We’ve travelled the globe picking out the very best waterparks for SplashWorld. So whether you fancy speeding down a corkscrew slide in Spain or riding a Kamikaze in the Dom Rep, we’ve got the full line-up of destinations.


Meet our slide tester

Slide tester

Seb Smith beat over 2,000 hopefuls to bag the job as our SplashWorld Slide Tester. He spent the summer travelling around our SplashWorld hotels and tearing down water slides, all the while tweeting and blogging about his adventures. Read more here.

We try out all the slides and rate each one, with only the best making the grade. It also means we can tot up the marks according to what's available at each waterpark - or take a look at the plans if it's new to the line-up - and come up with an overall splash-o-meter score out of 10. It's a great guide to picking the right SplashWorld hotel for you.

We’re redesigning our Splash-o-meter to make it easier to shortlist the best SplashWorlds for your family. We’ll be giving each waterpark an age stamp to make it clear who it’s best suited for. While our slide testers are busy marking up each waterpark, here’s a sneak preview at the new categories…

    SplashWorlds with the Splashers stamp will be loaded with things like small play pools, splash zones and brightly-coloured mini jets, making them ideal for tots aged 2 to 4.

    Huge splash parks with slides, shooting water and climbing zones will keep ages 5 to 11 happy at the waterparks with the Sliders stamp.

    Got teens with bags of energy in tow? Look out for the Thrillseekers stamp – it means there’ll be loads of high-adrenaline rides for older kids and adults.
