The Alton Towers Water Park (formerly known as Cariba Creek and Splash Landings) is housed inside the Splash Landings Hotel at the Alton Towers Resort. The 40,000 square foot park spans both indoor and outdoor areas, and features a selection of water slides, several swimming pools, an enormous climbing structure and a large number of interactive water elements. Alton Towers guests must pay an additional charge to visit the water park, with tickets being available as a bolt-on to hotel stays or separately for non-hotel guests. Booking in advance is advisable, as the water park enforces a strict adult-to-child ratio.
The Cariba Creek water park first opened in June 2003, featuring a tropical theme to tie-in with the Splash Landings Hotel. Initially, only hotel guests were able to visit, but since 2004 non-hotel guests have also been able to purchase tickets. In recent years, Alton Towers has dropped the Cariba Creek and Splash Landings branding, simply referring to the water park as the Alton Towers Water Park. Several plans have been put forward for new attractions, but no major additions have been made to the park.
