We have been fans of the Sandcastle for many years. Our visits are always enjoyable and the kids think it’s the best thing ever! We were therefore very pleased to go and try out the brand new Aztec slides which opened to the public on February 4th – we had seen the slides taking shape from the outside over the past few months outside the attraction.
These are 2 new slides which snake their way from the roof of the building (you’re still indoors – don’t worry!) down to 2 new splash zones back in the main area.
First we tried the Aztec Falls tube ride – took a double ring, entered through the smoke and up the stairs to the top for launch. The atmosphere built with Aztec music playing and themed paintings and footage on the monitors. As we sat there awaiting the green light we were both scared and excited at the same time as the ride set off into the pitch black.
