Guest Post* // Visit the UK's Best Waterparks this Summer

Kids love waterparks, there's no getting away from it. Even the most shy child will seemingly come alive as they splash about in the water, throw themselves down flumes and play in the kids play areas. They offer a great day out for all the family and can even transport you to the tropics, with their lagoon style pools, palm trees and subtropical climate, so where should you head for a day out the kids will never forget? Take a look at where to put your new swimming costumes to the test:

The Splash Landings Waterpark at Alton Towers
You don't have to be enjoying everything else Alton Towers has to offer if you want to use the waterpark here. Simply pre book your tickets online and you'll be able to access everything this fabulous waterpark has to offer. You'll be transported to the Caribbean as you float about around the lazy river and enjoy thewaterfall in Lagoon Bay. There are bubble pools both in and outside, the Master Blaster, which is a state of the art flume that'll whiz you all the way around the waterpark at high speed, a great kids area, separate toddler pools and so much more. Your little waterbabes won't quite believe their eyes.

Splash Waterworld, Butlins
Another fantastic waterpark you can visit on a day pass and not have to be staying at Butlins to visit. Enjoy the lazy river, relax in the bubble pools, surf the waves in the wave machine pool, brave the rapids and have fun on the flumes. Whether you try out the Master Blaster raft ride at Butlins Minehead, shoot the water cannons or try out the Space Bowl flume, there's a ride and a pool to suit every member of the family. The great thing is you have the entire Butlins resort at your disposal, as well as Splash Waterworld,so you can really make a day out of it if you do decide to visit Butlins at Minehead, Bognor Regis or Skegness with the kids this summer.

Sandcastle Waterpark, Blackpool
The UK's biggest indoor waterpark is home to some pretty impressive flumes. With 18 slides, pools, a wave machine, lazy river and lots more, there's so much to keep everyone entertained all day. There's an amazing kids area, the Caribbean Storm Treehouse, which features slides, waterfalls, water cannon and a huge bucket just waiting to empty its contents all over the unsuspecting children underneath. Fort Riptide features a fort to conquer and slides, and HMS Thundersplash is a fantastic pirate ship just waiting to be explored. The kids will have an absolute ball here at Sandcastle Waterpark and will be begging to return.

Clearly you don't even have to leave the country to find an amazing waterpark which will have the kids talking about it for years to come. Buy your swimming costumes at George and take advantage of their great value prices, leaving you more money to spend on your day out.
