Waterworld Bundoran Opens for Year 25!


Waterworld Bundoran, Ireland’s premier indoor aqua adventure playground will this year throw its doors open for its 25th year of business on Good Friday March 25th at midday.


With over 1.5 million visitors since it first opened in 1991 the complex continues to attract families from all parts of the country who come to experience over 15 water features under one roof where family fun is guaranteed!


General Manager Anderson Keys said ‘Waterworld has seen massive changes since it first opened on June 1st 1991. From the addition of the whizzer slide and tower in 1994, to the arrival of the Gravity flume and a €1.8 million facelift in 2013 to add in even more features including a three lane multi slide, pirate galleon ship, toddler pool and more, we are thrilled to bring Waterworld into its 25th year.  Over the years we have had a great deal of support from Bundoran Town Council and subsequently Donegal County Council as well as a dedicated board of directors who are determined to see the facility remain as one of the top water parks in the country.
Over the years, Waterworld has donated thousands of euros to local charities through the annual charity day, normally held around each year’s birthday celebrations.  This year will see four local charities become the beneficiaries of the charity day, which will be held on Saturday June 4th – proceeds from the day’s takings will be donated to each of the charities.
Seamus Neely, CEO of Donegal County Council, operators of Bundoran Waterworld added ‘I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Waterworld Bundoran on their 25th anniversary.  This is a wonderful milestone and I am sure that Anderson and his team at Waterworld have great plans in place to celebrate this special year.  Waterworld continues to be one of our most popular visitor attractions and the fact that visitors return year after year says it all.  I would also like to acknowledge the elected members and staff of the former Bundoran Town Council who were instrumental in bringing Waterworld to Bundoran 25 years ago.  Their vision, determination and commitment has put Bundoran on the map as one of the country's premier visitor destinations and Waterworld has played a key role in this achievement.’
Waterworld will undertake a comprehensive advertising and promotional campaign over the coming weeks, which will include Cinema, TV, Radio and Press Advertising. Waterworld reopens on Good Friday March 25th at midday and will remain open daily from 12-6pm (last entry 5pm) until Sunday April 3rd.  Thereafter the facility will open weekends until June 1st after which time it will open daily through the summer.
