Why are Indoor Water Parks great family attractions?

There are many reasons families love taking their kids swimming at indoor waterparks. One of the obvious ones being, they’re indoors. UK families know the gruelling pain of rainy British weather all too well and finding reliable days out is important as you want your kids to be happy and have no matter what the weather is.

The second reason is that swimming is one of the best ways to exercise and have fun. Swimming is the only type of exercise that works the whole body. Swimming builds endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness as well as painting heart and lung health. 

And number reason three… THEY ARE SO FUN!!! Most leisure centres of fun family sessions, splash sessions, splash parks, splash lagoons, tropical pools and more. Kids can enjoy racing down their favourite slides, playing on thrilling rides, climbing aboard pirate ships, using water canons, bobbing along with wave machines and so much more. There are even some UK waterparks that have music and lighting effects to enhance each family’s experience in the water.
