About Us

Splashdown Quaywest is the wettest, wildest attraction on the English Riviera.  Great fun water slides, some laugh out loud fun and some will have you screaming.  Swimming pool area and plenty of space for enjoying the sun and, of course, the fantastic views of Souuth Devon's Beautiful Bay.

Choose from eight exciting flume rides.  Jump on a tyre and ride the visitors' favourites Surf Lagoon and Raging Rapids; these rivers are wild, so grab your tyre and hold on tight. Ride the rapids from one splash pool to the next and try not to capsize. You never know what’s around the next bend!  Dare you descend the famous Devil's Drop? Near vertical drop and 15m from the top.

All that fluming can work up an appetite, dive into our restaurant to refuel or grab a cooling ice-cream.   Meal Deals are available and can be booked online - that's where to get the best price and to book your admission tickets.


There's more than one way to slide - on either a body, mat or a tyre ride!

Take on the sheer speed of The Screamer and ride the Wild Kamikaze, but are you BRAVE enough to face our Devil's Drop? Tumble on tyres and twist through the tubes; check out our 8 adrenalin-pumping slides below; each with a varying degree of difficulty. For the less adventurous, our Swimming Area and Sun Terraces are perfect to relax in the sunshine.

Please note: For health and safety reasons NO lap riding is permitted and all our slides are single rider slides.

Devil's Drop - water depth at exit - 0.5m

Stare into the eyes of the devil! Plunge down a 65ft near vertical drop and into a black hole run out on the highest, fastest flume in the UK! Are you brave enough to conquer the DROP!


The Screamer - water depth at exit - 0.5m

Perfect for speed freaks; this short, sharp, shock slide sees riders descend like a bullet through a 60 degree steep arc! This is a high-speed water ride that is not for the faint-hearted!


Wild Kamikaze - water depth at exit - 0.5m

Reach high speeds as you accelerate through 60 metres of slide and descend through not 1, not 2 but 3 steep drops! You'll be racing back to the start as soon as you've finished!


Raging Rapids - water depth at exit - 1m

A great chance to ride together with friends; spiral and spin through a number of small slides and splash tubs before a fast bumpy finish on this 145m long single inflatable tyre ride.


Surf Lagoon - water depth at exit - 1m

Tumble and twist through 130m twists and turns, small slides and splash tubs on our classic serpentine single inflatable tyre slide. Surf’s up – you’re in for a bumpy ride!

Corkscrew - water depth at exit - 1.2m

Don’t be fooled by the shallow descent; grab a mat and spiral through 98m of 360-degree turns that are sure to leave you in a spin!


Wet and Wild - water depth at exit - 1.2m
