Alpamare Waterpark

Opened in 2016, Alpamare Waterpark in Scarborough is a magical mix of adventure and pampering.

Attractions include some of Europe’s wettest and wildest waterslides, a rolling wave pool and child-friendly water playground, plus two heated outdoor pools that can be used all year round. There’s also an infinity pool, looking out to the gorgeous North Bay scenery.

A trip to Scarborough would not be complete without a visit to the best waterpark in the UK. It really does offer something for everyone, including a spa and wellness centre away from the rush and adrenaline of the outrageous slides.


Rock Up

Rock Up is a thrilling indoor climbing centre. With 26 multicoloured climbing walls for you to explore, a café that serves great coffee and fresh food, plus an indoor soft play area for children under 8, the fantastic facility provides a great adventure for family and friends alike.

Offering moving parts on the walls, speed climbs, inflatable climbs and lots more to enjoy, Rock Up was originally started by a group of new parents with a love for climbing and adventure. They were looking for a way to bring the outdoors inside and make climbing accessible to everyone, so that the whole family can get active and experience the fun of climbing on an indoor climbing wall, whatever the weather.

Rock Up is located on the top floor of St Stephen’s Shopping Centre.
