Additional dates were also added to the Accessibility Evening calendar. Accessibility Evenings offer families with disabled children the chance to spend quality time together in the Waterpark without public service announcements and music and additional Water Ambassadors are on hand to assist the children and their families whilst in the water and on the slides.

Managing Director John Child said “We are delighted to receive this award in recognition of our commitment to Accessible Tourism”. The team here at Sandcastle Waterpark work extremely hard to ensure that our guests with disabilities have a great day out.
