A HUGE new indoor water park and spa is coming to the UK, with water slides, pools, wellness areas and even swim up bars.
Plans for Therme Manchester have been confirmed by the Trafford Council in Manchester for the £250m resort to be built.
The 28-acre site, the size of 19 football pitches, is being dubbed the first "well-being-resort" in the country but features much more than relaxation areas.
Inside the family zone will be swimming pools, including a wave pool, as well as water slides and water fitness classes.
Guests will also be able to relax in the palm tree relaxation area, or the two acre "well-being garden" shaped like a rose with bio-diverse plants and water features.
Adults can enjoy time away from kids with a no-child section, which will have water lagoons, mineral bars, swim up bars, steam room and saunas.
Fitness fanatics can take advantage of the health classes such as yoga and pilates.
You won't even need to leave to eat, with restaurants and cafes also part of the planning.
The aim of the new resort is to bring together "the tradition of the ancient Roman spa with an indoor tropical paradise".
The-three story resort will replace the current EventCity building in Manchester, with plans for it to open by 2023.
It expects to attract two million people annually, with prices not yet revealed, although could see guests paying a fee for the whole attraction or just a single zone.
A £75m water park inspired by Indiana Jones could also be opening in the UK soon.
In Germany, a water park called Tropical Islands is open all year round with balmy temperatures and warm pools.
