Aqua Splash was quite an impressive Water Park in its day and I remember going there on a number of occasions as a child. The pool is situated in Hertfordshire and was opened in around 1995.

As has been proven lately; a lot of these “Out of Town†Leisure Parks which became very popular in the 80s and 90s are dying out as the High Street is thankfully slowly reviving itself, or so it seems.

Last time I visited in April 2010 it was looking sorry for itself and in desperate need of an overhaul. By November 2013 Aqua Splash had closed down along with Burger King. Now only half of the Leisure Park is in operation as builders develop the inside. Its not confirmed what’s happening but the shell is certainly remaining in place for what I believe will be restaurants.

Aqua Splash housed a whole host of awesome flumes; including a Lazy River with “Tyre Ride†which I believe was later named “Abyssâ€, Multi Slides, an awesome Rapids Ride and of course the well known “Space Bowl†or the “Plughole Ride†as I used to call it which used to scare me, including a nearly 20 year old me who was winded on it in 2010!

It was an awesome place when it was open and it looks like attempts were made to revive it and it closed after 18 years of business.

We had to visit later in the day as builders work everyday here. I have obtained an external for this reason.


Visited with two other explorers

I apologise again for my "Shutter Happy Syndrome", for a derpy old pool I found this to be quite picturesque.
