World’s first living waterslides announced for Therme Manchester

Therme Manchester will include the world's first "living waterslides".
The slides will feature 3D-printed structures housing thousands of biodiverse plants.
The waterslides are part of the resort's focus on biophilic design.
The £250m indoor ‘next generation’ waterpark, thermal bathing and a wellbeing spa are opening in 2025.

Therme Manchester – the £250m indoor ‘next generation’ waterpark, thermal bathing and a wellbeing spa, opening in 2025 – will include the world's first "living waterslides".

The waterslides are part of the resort's focus on biophilic design and will feature 3D-printed structures housing thousands of biodiverse plants.

Thanks to their design, the slides will be made to look like tree trunks, with plants growing out of them.

Due to its sustainable approach, the resort will have a major net gain in biodiversity with a 10,000 sq m wellbeing garden, a next-generation hydroponic vertical farm, more than 1,500 trees and roof-top beehives, producing honey for use in restaurants and wellbeing treatments.

Located at TraffordCity in Manchester, Therme Manchester is the UK’s first city-based wellbeing resort.

Therme Group is working in partnership with Peel L&P to deliver the project, at a cost of over £250m (US$328.5m, €299.3m).

Stelian Iacob, senior vice president of Therme Group and CEO of Therme Group UK, said: "We are creating a sustainable, engaging and accessible experience with profound health and wellbeing benefits for all.

"We will continue to work with the Manchester community as we progress with the design and development”.

Construction of the development is scheduled to begin in 2023, with a build time of around two years.
