Splash Lagoon is the latest addition to the Hampshire theme park

Brand-new flume ride, Splash Lagoon, has officially opened at the award-winning family attraction, Paultons Park.

Splash Lagoon is a family-friendly water boat ride that takes young explorers on a Jurassic adventure in Paultons Park’s dinosaur-themed world, Lost Kingdom. The new family flume is complete with meandering rapids and an exciting drop into a prehistoric lagoon below. Splash Lagoon offers an exciting ride for junior thrill-seekers and their parents.

Paultons Park, located in the New Forest National Park in Hampshire, is renowned for its attention to detail and theming. Lost Kingdom catapults families back to a long-forgotten era, using sound, planting, live shows, curated spaces, and colour to create a captivating prehistoric landscape.

James Mancey, deputy managing director at Paultons Park, said: “Splash Lagoon is already proving to be a big hit. The addition of a family flume complements the Lost Kingdom experience perfectly and means there are now six rides for guests to enjoy in our dinosaur themed land. Splash Lagoon is ideal for younger thrill-seekers, while Flight of the Pterosaur and the Velociraptor offer older children and parents an exhilarating ride.”

Paultons Park prides itself on being a destination for all the family and boasts almost 80 rides and attractions across five themed worlds. The attraction maintains an average 4.7 star ranking on Google Reviews, and with over 13,000 five-star reviews, beats all other UK theme parks.

James added: “The detailing and theming of Splash Lagoon has created a highly immersive family adventure. Everything we do at Paultons Park is centred around offering exceptional quality and value for money for families. We can’t wait to welcome more guests to experience Splash Lagoon this summer.”

In 2023, Paultons Park was named the UK’s best value theme park*. The accolade was based on independent research which considered entry ticket price, queue times, parking fees, and number of attractions. In addition to an extensive family offering, Paultons Park boasts free parking, free entry for children under 1 metre, and some of the lowest ride queue times in the UK, meaning the destination came out on top as offering the best value for money compared to all other UK attractions.
