Blackpool is well known for its pivotal role in Europe’s Industrial Revolution. Apart from that, Blackpool is also a city that is rich in history and prides itself on its long standing cultural heritage. Due to this very reason, many tourists who are into the arts and culture scene visit Blackpool daily as it has become one of the top tourist destinations in England today. For a city that draws tourist due to its old-world architecture, historical artifacts and cultural backgrounds, it might seem strange that the most famous tourist spot in Blackpool is related to none of these. The Sandcastle Waterpark in Blackpool is arguably its most popular attraction. Tons of tourists and visitors flock to this amazing indoor water theme park and its grounds are nearly always packed.

Featuring over 18 different slides, with a variety of other fun rides and play-spots, the Sandcastle Waterpark can truly boast to be one of the world’s greatest water-themed playgrounds. The huge range of water slides include famous water slides such as the Duelling Dragons, where you can race a friend sliding down long water slides, to the Master Blaster.
