Sneak peek at the UK’s new £75million water park and it looks utterly brilliant

The UK's best water parks are about to get a serious contender for the top spot.

That's because a brand new £75million water park is set to open near Bournemouth, and it will become the Britain's biggest indoor water park.

Think thrilling rides and slides, splash pools, wave machines and lazy rivers, with some attractions even using Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies to add that extra adrenaline-inducing finish.

The Elysium Water Park is expected to open in 2023, but we've already had a sneak peek thanks to a series of artists' impressions the project's team have released.

Oh, and it looks utterly incredible.

There's a sneak peek of some of the thrilling slides and tunnels that will be on offer for thrill-seekers, as well as large tube attractions where visitors can float down spacious rivers.

Although not too much has been revealed about the exact attractions, we know that they will use a mix of VR and AR to enhance the experience.

Oh, and the flumes will also be transparent so that when you're racing down the slides you'll get to enjoy views of the park (or realise just how high up you are!).

If all of the excitement and thrills get too much for adults, then they might want to head to the on-site 'water-based spa' which will be for anyone aged 18 and over.

Based on the concept art we're thinking whirlpools, dining venues with indulgent dishes, and even saunas and steam rooms – but it's worth noting that the resort hasn't yet confirmed exactly what will be on offer at the spa.

There's plenty of space too, as the water park boasts 75 acres of space, with a handy location near Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.

Of course that won't all be the water park. There will also be country gardens, a lake, outdoor sitting areas, country walking trails and restaurants for visitors to explore.

When it's finished, Elysium will boast a capacity for 4,000 visitors a day, and it's expected to welcome around one million guests every year.
