Venue type: Indoor

Ahoy mateys! Set sail for adventure and discover hidden treasure at Calypso Cove Waterpark.

The saltiest of sea dogs will get an adrenaline rush from their two thrill rides. Terror Torrent is the UK’s fastest indoor flume with a pitch black interior. Equally as scary, Eruption does what it says on the tin - you’ll be spewed from the belly of the volcano into the choppy depths below! There’s no such thing as lily-livered here but if you don’t feel up to the bigger rides, climb aboard the Sunken Galleon. You can slide into the shallow end or fire the water cannon at enemy hordes!

Take a chance and Walk the Plank on the top diving board, or splash around in the central wave pool. Lessons are available and toddlers and younger kids (pirates in training) can have a paddle in Coconut Creek. It’s a safe spot to grow confidence in the water. To complete the perfect island getaway, wash everything down with grog ‘n’ grub at The Hideout diner. Plus the park offers birthday packages to suit budding buccaneers.
