bump - I see Alton towers has a waterpark - is that any good?

Bromley pool - in the Glades shopping centre, has slides. But it's not a water park!

Thanks BTM, will have a look. If there was crazy golf nearby I might get away with it...

Hopeful bump fpr more ideas. Realised Alton Towers is oop north, doh!

Anyone? Surely there is afabulous waterpark with minigolf nearer than Nottingham...

Guildford Spectrum? You can hire the whole pool on Friday / Saturday nights ...

Tower park in but it's in Poole, Dorset so may be too far

Thank you, She, it is the obvious answer. BUT his brother's friend is having his party there. Which for inexplicable reasons rules it out. <minor head explosion>

Will just check how long to get to Poole, must be closer than Nottingham, thanks, Whatever.

Oh hang on, isn't there one on the A322 to Bracknell, where it turns off onto the Nine Mile Ride? It takes me 45 mins to get from Kingston to there, so maybe not bad.; I just can't remember the name of it, but I'm sure it has slides and such.

Coral Reef, Bracknell. Opposite the Lookout Discovery Centre and Go Ape (also jolly good for parties).

If you can't do Guildford Spectrum, how about trying the Pool in the Park in Woking. I know it has slides, and I think they add inflatables for parties.

Ah, more to investigate, thanks everyone. Am working hard to talk Ds out of the Alton towers one...
