Liam Tancock opens Ladram Bay Splash Zone

We welcomed Exeter born three-time Swimming world champion Liam Tancock to Ladram Bay for the opening of our new Splash Zone.


Gold-medallist Liam declared the new Splash Zone open it was quickly descended upon by it’s first excited guests.


The 160-square metres of wonderfully wet activities and challenges is already proving a hit with grown-ups as well. Each area of the Splash Zone contains pressure sensitive floor pads, with the rotating water sprinkler proving especially popular for its ability to soak others around you.

Liam described the Splash Zone as a “fantastic way to help kids enjoy and become confident with water”.

The Splash Zone is part of a £1 million investment made by the family-owned park in the run-up to the 2018 summer season when its 75th anniversary is being marked.

Ladram Bay director Zoe House, who is a member of the park-owning Carter family, said it was a great privilege to welcome Liam to Ladram Bay:

“Although the Splash Zone is all about having fun, Liam knows that youngsters just enjoying themselves in the water can be a great introduction to swimming as a sport,” she said.

“We have many guests which return here year after year, and we’re often told that one big reason is the wealth of things to do for all ages, no matter what the weather. Our main aim has always been to create amazing holiday memories with first-class facilities, and I think that our new Splash Zone comes right up to the mark!” added Zoe.

If you are staying with us this summer the Splash Zone is located outside the Pool Complex and will excite all ages and is even suitable for toddlers and non-swimmers. The ocean themed area measures 18m x 9m and includes interactive water features, spray guns & a pirate ship, perfect for exploration and adventures.
