Alton Towers has an indoor/outdoor waterpark

You might think of Alton Towers as a theme park but it actually has an indoor/outdoor waterpark that you can visit year round.

The heated indoor area is a splash zone with smaller slides and pool while the outdoor section is all about the big flumes.

Tickets for the waterpark and the theme park are sold separately but make sure you book before you get there as it’ll be cheaper.

It costs £16.50pp and you can get them here.

3. Parco Cavour, Italy

This modern waterpark takes inspiration from tropical spots around the world.

There’s a tiki bar, Robinson Crusoe-inspired beach, lagoons, waterslides and more.

Even the pool has sand at the bottom so you feel like you’re in a tropical paradise.

You can pre-book your entry through Tiqets with prices from £16.14pp.

The closest city to the waterpark is Verona; it’s not quite as popular as some of the other European cities, which means you can find great deals going there.

Jet2 Holidays for example has 3-night breaks to the city starting from just £254pp, with flights and accommodation during peak season included – it’s bookable here.

The Paphos Aphrodite Waterpark is definitely one for thrillseekers.

As well as thrill rides, soft play and mini golf, the park also has a hugely popular waterpark, with plenty of waterslides to keep your kids entertained.

Tickets to the park include all of the attractions so even if it rains, you can still enjoy lots of activities – and you can book them on Attraction Tix here.

Or for an even better deal, stay at the hotel on site to get unlimited entry to the park included as part of your stay.

Prices start from £109pp a night with On The Beach, and you can add flights to turn it into a package holiday from £352pp.

Or Jet2 Holidays has pre-packaged deals from £527pp for a 7-night stay with flights and transfers, bookable here.

6. Aquafollie, Italy

Located in the town of Caorle, Aquafollie is designed for families.

There aren’t as many bigger thrill slides, but younger kids will love all the different splash zones, the wave pool and lagoon.

As it’s so close to Venice, it’s perfect for a day out if you’re looking for a change of scenery.

7. WaterPark Rhodes, Greece

Ideal for a day out when you’re staying in Rhodes, WaterPark in Faliraki is hugely popular with families and with good reason.

For those with younger kids, there’s a lazy river, wave pool and splash zones as well.

As Faliraki is such a popular destination, there are lots of package holiday deals for it.

It’s all about pools and slides here and you can come whatever the weather as it has indoor and outdoor areas.

Double check before you book though as some only include entry to the theme park and not the actual waterpark.
