WaterWorld is the UK's number one Tropical Indoor Aqua Park based in Staffordshire. Splash around in a wave pool surrounded by slides, rides and flumes. There is plenty to do for all ages, for weaker and stronger swimmers alike, with a Water's Edge Restaurant where you can lounge and grab a quick bite to eat. We have a choice of meal deals, sharing platters and specialities of the day. Many of the things on our menu are also gluten free, nut free or Halal. Just ask the helpful staff on your next visit.

For a dripping good time, WaterWorld also host a range of birthday parties for all ages in its own special beach themed party area. With unlimited time in the pool, birthday buffets as well as goody bags and balloons every child has a whale of a time at a WaterWorld Beach Party. If you're looking for the most happening party every Friday, the Wave Rave is the place to be. With the latest chart toppers, exciting games and competitions with give-aways, it's easy to get fluming excited.

I've enjoyed many fun trips to Waterworld as a child and teenager I loved the aqua disco on a Friday night. Now I'm looking at it from a different angle taking my own children there. Some parts haven't changed a bit, the wave pool and the original 3 flumes, however from a parents point of view they have invested recently... More

We arrived as soon as it opened at 10:00am on Sunday. Wasn't very busy so we didn't have to queue for slides. My husband and I took our 11 year old and 7 year old. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day. Loads to keep us busy didn't leave until 16:00. As the day continued it got busier but apart from... More

Took our four year old son as a treat, and went here specifically as had a 241 voucher. Unfortunately, was told that there had been a dispute with voucher provider, and although voucher was still in date (valid until March 31st), management refused to honour it. Seems petty as not my fault, and had travelled over an hour. Therefore it... More

Took my son at what must have been an incredibly busy period - couldn't get a parking space for many long arduous minutes.. however, once we did - got in there and enjoyed the experience. It was our second visit as we enjoyed it so much before. Think there could be a big improvement to changing areas and lockers -... More

My daughter is nearly 3 and loved it from the moment we walked through the doors. We were in the water area for 4 hours. Food was hot and tasty. We will definitely be back! We drove 66 miles and it's very worth the mileage.

Went here with my 4 year old son and he loved it! He was tall enough to go on more than the 'baby' slides. He loved going on the python? We got a return pass for £5pp which is valid for 3 months so looking forward to returning!

Great swimming pool....but for the chlorine, which is in such huge quantities, even those with the hardiest eyes will suffer. My 4 year old grandson loves the pool, however, goggles are essential. On the plus side there is a clean cafe, a sensory room, for young people with learning disabilities, which can be booked and good parking facilities. Good prices.... More
