Rhyl Sun Centre – or as the new attraction is called – Rhyl SC2

North Wales news and information

Make a Splash at the Rhyl Sun Centre! If you have visited Rhyl before, you might well remember the Rhyl Sun Centre. The original water park enjoyed great popularity before it was demolished in 2016. Today, though the new Rhyl Sun Centre – called SC2 – offers everything the original did and more. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Where is SC2 Rhyl? ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

You’ll find it on West Parade, which runs through Rhyl close to the seafront. The postcode for satnav users is LL18 1BF. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

If you are staying in Rhyl, chances are you can walk to the parade to visit SC2. If not, you can reach it from the east by following the Rhyl Coast Road. If approaching from the west, follow the North Wales Expressway to Pensarn and exit for the A548 approaching Rhyl. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

When did the new water park open? ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Following the closure of the original Rhyl Sun Centre, SC2 was built and opened in early 2019. Since then, it has enjoyed great success among those living and staying in Rhyl. It also attracts people from nearby areas looking for a great day out. It certainly offers a superb way to wear out the kids. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

What is inside the water park? ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

There are various areas designed for different ages to enjoy: ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

• Main water park – offers maximum depth of 900mm and is aimed at the whole family
• Water confidence area – water level varies from 00mm to 300mm and is aimed at parents, toddlers, and younger kids ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Experience the water slides (if you’re brave enough) ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

From the dramatic Anaconda, which takes place in darkness, to the Boomerang, which puts you into a comfy rubber ring, there are slides to suit all ages and levels of daring. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Meanwhile, the Piranha Play area has attractions for young children including toddlers. While some areas of the waterpark are designed for swimmers, there are safer areas where swimming is not required, as it is impossible for young children to go out of their depth there. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

And if the weather is good, you can head outside too ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

A key feature of SC2 is the Outdoor Splash Pad. Offering a large shallow pool (maximum depth 300mm), it is ideal for all the family to enjoy. Slides, activities, and colourful equipment are spread around the pool to encourage interactivity. The area also boasts a Snack Shack and a Terrace area for relaxing and soaking up the sun. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

Party time and private hire ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​

SC2 is available for private hire after hours, or you can book a weekend birthday party at the centre that includes a meal and drink. ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​
