Covid Safe Fun at the Waterpark

Come with us and see how the team safely reopened Sandcastle Waterpark Blackpool. We went to the media preview on Friday 24 July 2020 to see the lengths they’ve gone to to give you a safe and enjoyable experience.

Enjoy our Blackpool Sandcastle water park vlog, with a guided tour from the door. We’ve met James, who spends all day cleaning and disinfecting. See inside the changing rooms where £100k has been spent on improving facilities and creating a new shower block. Take a walk around the pool side, where we get wet with the Sandcastle Master Blaster!

What’s new at the Sandcastle?

What a great job they’ve done! The BIGGEST CHANGE is that you must now book online in advance for your 3 hour session. Capacity is 1/3 that it was previously. Which means you can now plan ahead and book for guaranteed admission!

Here’s their Covid-safe video of all the great changes they’ve made –

LOTS of safety measures have been put in place to ensure that you have a great, safe visit. Including:

  • social distancing for queues,
  • hand sanitiser dispensers galore,
  • safety screens,
  • increased ventilation throughout the building.
  • Don’t forget that the chlorine and bromine used in swimming pool water kills all known germs!

The new-look website is now online, with all the information you need to plan your visit. It also explains how things have changed in order to reopen.

We think you’ll agree that this makes for a better customer experience. There’s a lot less queueing to get in the building, and hardly any queueing to enjoy the rides. Spend your time having fun, rather than waiting in line!

Accessible Family Evenings at Sandcastle Waterpark

Sandcastle Waterpark is an incredibly thoughtful attraction. They’ve helped disadvantaged and disabled people so much over the years.

Under normal circumstances (before Covid-19) Accessible Family evenings were held regularly. Not only are these events a great opportunity for young people with disabilities, they also raise a great deal of money for charity.

We’re sure that they will be back again, just as soon as it’s safe to do so.

Sprucing Up Sandcastle Waterpark

Blackpool Sandcastle Waterpark re-opened on Saturday 16th February 2019 after essential works, maintenance and refurbishment.

The pools were drained, old floors taken up and new ones relaid. New boilers have been installed. The roof’s had some major work done and, of course, the entire Waterpark was cleaned and prepped in time for the 2019 season.

An Annual Pass makes a Great Gift!
