Expansion Work 2019

Posted on: 24 April 2019 by waterworld

Tornado Alley – featuring the tallest and fastest water flumes of their kind in the UK – opened at Waterworld in time for the August bank holiday 2019.

The opening of these rides marks the end of a mammoth construction project, and the first stage of a huge new era for Waterworld which cements our position as the UK’s number one indoor tropical aqua park.

  • The largest two rides are more than 16.5m (54ft) hight – making them the tallest and fastest in the UK;
  • Riders can reach speeds of 39kph;
  • Around 300 tonnes of steelwork have been used;
  • Roughly 3,300 tonnes of concrete has been poured into the construction;
  • The 75,000sq ft extension will be three-storeys high;
  • A changing room upgrade has seen 1,000 new ‘digital lockers’;
  • Eight new energy-efficient boilers have been fitted.
