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.
10 GREAT THINGS ABOUT SplashWorld
Body SlidesSome twist, some corkscrew, some plunge you into darkness, and some simply shoot straight down, but they’ll all leave your knuckles a ghostly shade of pale.
Bowl SlidesEver wondered what it’d be like to go down the plughole? Throw yourself down a bowl slide and you’ll find out.
Kids' SlidesThey might look tiny to us, but for tots and toddlers these are the Real McCoy. Unmissable on family waterpark holidays.
Lazy RiverFor something a bit more sedate, grab yourself an inflatable ring and hop on to the Lazy River. The biggest waterparks in our range tend to include them.
Multi-Lane SlidesIt's all about getting from top to bottom as fast as you can. There's more than one lane, so you can race your mates. On your marks, get set...
RapidsChoppy waters, speedy drops and whirling waters – the rapids are like a lazy river with attitude. Grab a rubber ring, jump in, and get paddling.
Sidewinders & BoomerangosThese bad boys are the giants of the sliding world – they’re like supersized skate ramps you charge down on a rubber ring.
Speed SlidesThey're fast, they're furious and they'll fire you down at near breakneck speeds. Oh, and some do it in the pitch-black...
Tube SlidesIs there anything more fun than shooting down a good waterslide? Well, how about doing it in a giant rubber ring?
Wave PoolFancy the sea without the sand? Then a decent wave pool's just the ticket. If you choose Aqualand Village, you'll get to try out the third biggest wave pool in the world.
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…
All hotels in this range have free Wi-Fi available from May 2014, so you can stay connected while you’re away.
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 Boomerango in Egypt, we’ve got the full line-up of destinations.
Meet our 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.
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.
