The UK adventure park you won't have heard of – with water slides, go-karting and huge indoor soft play | The Sun

THERE'S an adventure park in the UK that you may not have heard of – but has huge indoor soft plays and thrilling attractions.

Knockhatch Adventure Park in Hailsham, Sussex, is lesser-known by families, but still lots to do.

This includes huge dual water slides, go-karting and even a petting zoo.

There are also a bunch of themed experiences adventure seekers can delve into while at the park, including The Sherlock Holmes Experience, the Wave Runner and the huge Lost World Playbarn slides. 

The Wave Runner is a water slide where riders plummet from a thirty-two-foot tower in a raft before skimming across the water pool at the bottom. 

And for those sunny days, there’s a huge wet play area called Jungle Splash that sports water arches, gushers, fountains and a massive waterfall.
