Be Excited … in a tropical World of water fun!

From Pirate Ships to Snake River Flume Rides, enter the tropical World of Coral Reef, Bracknell’s Waterworld for the ultimate fun day out. 

Older kids can laze in Blue Lagoon Jacuzzi before climbing aboard the Pirate Ship as the water cannons fire across the unsuspecting swimmers.  But be aware, the volcano erupts; the Serpents unleash their water venom as you enter the Wild Water Rapids around the island.  Watch out, the geysers and a merging river torrent from the Jacuzzi that will challenge your path. 

Your escape is the three giant water slides!  Anyone can ride the slow Python, whereas the Anaconda will challenge the single rider.  Ultimately the spine-chilling Boa Constrictor will test your nerve to the very limit. 

Conveniently situated between the M4, (J10) and the M3 (J3) just follow the Pirate Ship signs to Coral Reef round-about, opposite The Look Out Discovery Centre.
