Sandcastle Waterpark is in a key position on the seafront at South Beach, Blackpool. This attraction has paid special attention to ensuring an excellent visitor experience for individuals and families with a wide variety of easy access needs. Starting when visitors enter the centre, emphasis is placed on enabling disabled visitors to access all the facilities on offer to the best of their ability. A meet and greet service is available and if required assistance can be provided with check-in, which includes a low-level counter.
Ambassadors are on hand to assist around the attraction.
There is a dedicated poolside wet room changing area, which includes a full changing bed. A second wet room changing area is equipped with an H-track hoist system, adjustable sink, toilet, full adult size changing bed and a range of accessibility aids.
Although this is popular ‘all weather’ attraction has lots of visitors, extensive refurbishment has created a feeling of space and light within the main public areas. There is a quiet cooler area within the First Aid/Triage post where visitors can self-administer medication or rest.
The main changing area accessed via a lift also has a designated easier access cubicle and low-level access to facilities such as mirrors and hairdryers.
