Splashdown Quaywest in Paignton is the UK’s largest outdoor water park and the place to find multiple thrill slides as well as a brand new aqua park for kids aged 12 and under opening in May 2024.

The new Shipwreck Island comes with seven family-friendly flumes, interactive activities and a giant tipping bucket.

Splashdown’s other attractions include 3Fall (a head first mat racer ride), the Surf Lagoon and Raging Rapids tyre rides and the 15m Devil’s Drop vertical slide. There’s 16 attractions in total: nine for visitors more than 1m in height and seven for visitors under 1m and their accompanying adults.

Book tickets online in advance to avoid disappointment. This attraction gets very busy on sunny summer days.

Splashdown Quaywest in Paignton, South Devon, open from May to September.
