THE new waterpark at the Barnsley Metrodome has opened today (Wednesday) - with a pirate theme.

Calypso Cove has a nine metre skull that acts as a waterfall as well as new rides Splash Ahoy, Eruption, the Kraken and the Terror Torrent which will be the fastest slide.

Tom Wilson, spokesman, said: “It has been such a fantastic project and to finally be able to see people enjoy using the water park will be fantastic.

“The idea behind the refurbishment was to create a totally new experience for our customers and give people from all over Yorkshire a water park that really had the wow factor.”

We have family tickets to give away: to enter our competition go here.
