A HUGE new indoor water park and spa is coming to the UK in 2023 with water slides, pools, wellness areas and even swim up bars.
New images for Therme Manchester have been revealed, with the £250m resort soon to begin building work.
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 25 swimming pools, including a wave pool, as well as more than 35 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, and 30 steam rooms and saunas.
Fitness fanatics can take advantage of the health classes such as yoga and pilates and 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".
It will be double the size of Therme's wellness centre in Bucharest, which opened in Romania in 2016.
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.
Richard Land, Chief Development Officer of Therme Group UK, said: "Therme Group is based on a belief that wellbeing should be accessible for all.
"The events of 2020 have shone a light on the necessity of this mission, especially for those in cities."
Another water park will also open at the Trafford centre – the £60m surfing lagoon Modern Surf on Barton Dock Road which has recently been approved as well.
A £75m water park inspired by Indiana Jones could also be opening in the UK soon, while in Germany, a water park called Tropical Islands is open all year round with balmy temperatures and warm pools.
