Calypso Cove Waterpark

by Lydia (follow)
An island paradise

Calypso Cove Waterpark is Barnsley's hidden treasure. It is home to fantastic flumes, sensational slides and wonderful waves, which makes it a great day out for the whole family!

There are four main pools at this waterpark. Barnacle Bay is new interactive under eights splash zone. It is full of fun water features and a mini slide. This is the perfect environment for water babies and water confidence building. Calypso Cove is the main leisure pool and this has a shallow end which is great for younger children or beginners. During leisure swims the wave machine will be activated regularly. They also have a 'Walk the plank' diving pool and an 'Open waters' competition pool, so there is definitely something here for everyone.

They have a range of flumes and slides for all to enjoy. Some are breath-taking and require high levels of bravery. The 'Terror torrent' is one of the UK's fastest indoor flumes and is not for the faint hearted! 'Eruption' is also for brave buccaneers only as you slide down into the volcano’s belly before being spewed out into the pool below. In addition to these they have more family friendly options with more gentle options. These include; 'Kracken' and the 'Sunken galleon'.

Don't forget to stop at the 'Hideout' for food and drinks during your time here. This poolside diner makes for an excellent pitstop. They serve a range of food and drink options including meal deals, sides and a selection of hot drinks and alcoholic beverages. They also have all the popular choices for kids as a meal deal.
