Popular attractions include the Sandcastle Water Park which is the largest indoor waterpark in the UK, and the Pleasure Beach theme park home to the Big One and Nickelodeon Land. Also at the Pleasure Beach, you'll find the Blackpool Arena with regular shows. Blackpool is always adding to its attractions profile, and many have seasonal runs like the recent incredibly popular Illuminasia (the world's largest indoor illuminations) at Winter Gardens. Recent new additions include Dinosaur World on the Promenade opposite Central Pier. Ideal for younger children, but with something to please all this attraction features a dinosaur activity centre, a cinema screening films and documentaries, life size exhibits and a brilliant dinosaur themed gift shop!

Indoor water worlds don't come much better than all weather attraction Sandcastle Waterpark on South Shore with over 18 slides and water themed attractions from fun pools to wave machine and water chutes. A real indoor waterworld village, you'll find all you need for a fun packed family day out inside including burger and snack bars, a swim shop and award-winning accessible facilities and amenities. Sandcastle is great for birthday parties and features rides, slides and water play areas suitable for children of all ages.
