Important information if you've booked Pirate & Princess Takeover

If you're going to our Pirate & Princess Takeover this February Half Term, please see some important information below:


Our wacky Waterpark is open from 9 am – 5 pm through February half term. We aim to have your room ready by 3 pm so why not make a splash before you check-in? Or enjoy a delicious leisurely breakfast and head on down on the second day of your stay.

Your ticket for Waterpark entry can be found on your confirmation email and can be either printed or scanned straight from your phone! Your ticket may be dated, if you wish to change this day please speak to the Waterpark on arrival.


Remember to come dressed to impress in your best Pirate and Princess get-up — there's a fancy dress parade and tons of live shows to get involved in! You can find a copy of your full entertainments guide here, which will tell you all about the amazing activities going on across the Resort.

Sharkbait Reef by SEA LIFE

Please note: As Sharkbait Reef by SEA LIFE is not accessible by foot and will have its own entrance (different to the main Theme Park entrance), please follow the signs clearly marked ‘Sharkbait Reef’, which will direct you to the correct car park and entrance. 

Extraordinary Golf

Your package includes a FREE round of crazy zany golf on our Extraordinary Golf course, based around some of the iconic rides and attractions in our Theme Park. Double the fun and play 18 holes for just £2.50 per person — ask a team member on the day for more information
