Haven't been in years but it's a lot of fun. It's doable in a few hours, so you could do it in the morning and spend the afternoon on park. Booking won't be an issue if doing it seperately, you can do that here :)

I'd say you could extend it for half a day. They have food and drink available poolside, so you could always break in between. If you have booked via Alton, then there is an option via your room confirmation to book tickets. Doing it this way allows you to take advantage of 2 days for the price of one.

(Questions about the water park) This is why you don't let people with bad anxiety into a resort!

I was considering going to cariba creek (I refuse to say AT water park) this year but the website seems to actively hide stuff from you so I have ask questions here instead!

What are the changing/shower facilities like at cariba creek, are there private changing rooms and showers or is it just a big room?

Are there family changing rooms and if so, how do they work? Are there separate inlets to get changed?

Are you allowed/meant to use soap in the (private?) showers or not because I'm quite germ phobic.

How do the F&B shops work in a water park, is there an enclosed eating area with hand sanitizer or just a big dining area?

What I can remember, and it been a few years since swimming there, you have cubical that you can change in, not a communal changing room. They do have larger family cubical are available as I've change in there with my wife who is wheelchair bound and her large wheelchair fitted in their.  

I've showered in the showers using my own shower gel before now. 

The F&B shop is very open, with seating by the pool.  

I hope this helps

Do the showers have cubicles as well or is it only the changing rooms?
also, are there dividers or anything in the family changing rooms?

The showers don’t have cubicles but I’m not sure about the dividers in the family rooms. I wouldn’t have thought they would but I’ve never been in one so can’t say for definite.

I believe there are one or two cubical showers next to the toilets.
