Waterpark holidays

Same mega holidays, just add water - a lot of it!

Discover the world's best waterparks

Save money with hotel + waterpark tickets

When you’re in the UK, a lot of water means it’s raining (again). But when you’re on your jollies, a lot of water means mega waterparks. And when you get FREE access, it’s 5 mins away, or better yet, right outside your door? That’s a whole lot of chuffed children.

We’ll meet you for a few turns round the lazy river with our waterpark holidays 2024/2025

Where are the world's best waterparks?

Orlando, of course! This theme park mecca boasts a whopping 7 waterparks to get stuck into, from Typhoon Lagoon at Walt Disney World Resort, Florida, to Universal's Volcano Bay at Universal Orlando, and the futuristic Island H20. Plus, loads of the hotels get in on the fun too, with many having their own waterparks right outside the front door. Easy!

Dubai is determined to give Orlando a run for its money though, and is the pretty proud owner of the world's biggest waterpark, Aquaventure at Atlantis, The Palm, as well as Wild Wadi waterpark at Jumeriah Hotels and Resorts, set right against that iconic skyline. It's also home to the world's largest inflatable waterpark on Jumeirah Beach, too.

Beyond that, there are tons of other waterparks in breath-taking destinations across the world to discover. There's Yas Waterworld, the largest waterpark in Abu Dhabi, and Aquaventure at Atlantis, the Caribbean's largest waterpark... we're sensing a theme here! That said, there are bucketloads of great waterparks that haven't broken any records and they're still tons of fun. Dip your toe into the world of waterpark holidays and make splash-tastic memories in your dream holiday destination.

What's included in a waterpark holiday?

All the details + how to book
Waterpark holidays are designed with extensive waterpark access in mind - though as you'd expect, how much access you get depends on a couple of things:

  • If the waterpark is attached to the hotel, chances are you can spend all day, every day amongst the slides and attractions. Do check before you book, though!
  • Oh... did we mention that we sell attraction tickets?
  • If the waterpark is close by, you'll need tickets for access but they may be included as part of your holiday deal, or you might be able to snag some for a discount price that's not available on the gate.

How to Book a Waterpark Holiday

Chances are, you'll want the waterpark that's best suited to your group, along with a destination that tickles your fancy too. We'll help you get started, our waterpark holidays are primarily based in Orlando, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, the Caribbean, and Spain. So if that's where you've set your sights, we've got you covered.

Next, decide if you want to stay in a hotel that has a waterpark built into it, or whether you want to stay a stone's throw away in a hotel that includes tickets to the closest waterpark(s). There's quite a bit of overlap there, and you are pretty spoilt for choice!

Orlando Waterparks

Massive slides and thrilling rides

Typhoon Lagoon, Walt Disney World

Themed around the story of a fictional typhoon that wreaked havoc on a tropical paradise, Typhoon Lagoon, Walt Disney World is all about shipwrecks, surfboards and lush scenery. Think: lazy rivers, raft rides, and one of the biggest wave pools in the USA (6-feet high crests!)

Psst: there's even a saltwater lagoon where you can snorkel alongside marine life.

Volcano Bay, Universal Studios

The literal centre of the show here is - you guessed it - the great big volcano (now we get why they called it Volcano Bay!) that overlooks the park's more than 30 rides and attractions. From the more relaxed Puka Uli Lagoon and Waturi Beach to the Ko'okiri Body Plunge - only for the brave!

Plus, say bye-bye to waiting in line - thanks to your TapuTapu wristband it's all done virtually now. That means less queuing, more time in the lazy river.

Legoland Water Park

LEGO bricks and a water playground? Yes please! LEGOLAND waterpark in Orlando brings tons of activities for kids of all ages to get stuck into.

Adventure Island, Tampa

Located a little further afield in Tampa, opposite Busch Gardens, Adventure Island is 30 acres of thrilling waterslides, interactive attractions, surfing pools and so much more.
