Splash Landings at Alton Towers Resort is a must see attraction in the heart of Staffordshire. It boasts loads of fantastic interactive water features, from lazy rivers and crazy cannons, to the sensational speed of the Master Blaster water coaster. The outdoor bubbly wubbly pool with hot volcano springs also provides fun for all the family.

For thrill seekers they have a few key rides to experience. The Master Blaster blasts you all the way round the waterpark, shooting you up and down at breathtaking speed. The Rush'n'Rampage are two high speed thrilling rides with Rush now featuring an interactive slide experience. Here you get to select music and lights to play as you speed down in to the Splashdown pool. Flash Floods are the outdoor slides that plunge you in to the depths of the tropical pool outside.
For mid week fun they have exclusive weekday parent and toddler sessions. These sessions provide a safe and fun environment for children to explore, with a vast water wonderland that both kids and gown ups will enjoy. Tickets are £7 per adult and under 3's go free. The Parent and Toddler offer allows access to the Little Leak, Lagoona Bay and our Wacky Waterworks - a tree house with over 70 wild and watery features. There is also free car parking and baby changing facilities available on site.
We stayed and enjoyed a festive breaks package between Christmas and New Year and had a fabulous time here at a very reasonable price indeed. For £169 we had access to the waterpark, crazy golf, access to the theme park (selected rides were open during this time), tickets to Alice in Wonderland, breakfast and an overnight stay in the Splash Landings hotel for two adults and one child. The evening entertainment was non-stop with arcades, dance shows, character meet and greets and disco competitions. My only recommendation would be to make sure you book in to one of the restaurants for the evening! They have a range of accommodation packages throughout the year and more information can be found here.
