  • Never been here before. Took our 6 year old and 20 month old here today and they had such a fantastic time! The pool was a perfect depth. There was plenty to do. And although only one slide was operat...  read more »
  • Visited today. Good price. Water was decent temp. Children really enjoyed it. I though it needs a bit of investment to be honest. Floor was very slippy. Toilets and changing rooms were a little grubby...  read more »

  • I had a wonderful time at Aquadrome, however I did end up losing my wallet. But luckily the staff their contacting me telling me that it was there. Great place
  • Popped in for a leisurely swim arrived in good time at 3pm for an hour long swim. The queue for tickets stretched all the way down to the coffee shop. Finally got to the head of the queue twenty minutes later! The receptionist was polite enough. I asked when adult lane swimming stopped and was told the session ended at 4pm because of swimming lessons in both swimming pools (why not one?). Was told that a ticket would cost an extortionate £4.40! Unless your one of the benefit scroungers and you qualify for a concession. As I actually work for a living I paid the full wack which as I was only allowed 30mins in the pool works out at £8.80 an hour! No wonder were the fattest country in europe. When I finally got to the poolside I was staggered to find cretinous morons walking around in outdoor shoes without the mandatory overshoes treading canine excrement around the place. How unsanitary is that? The staff let these chavs walk around unchallenged, the showers are filthy, the lockers don't work and the cubicle doors don't lock. Come on aquadrome get your act together! Basingstoke is having tens of thousands of new houses being built and it's expanding population deserve affordable & accessible leisure facilities.
  • We live half an hour drive away so to avoid disappointment when slides are closed due to staff shortages or some other reason (this has happened twice) I tried phoning to check they were open. I have yet to get through on the phone after trying on numerous occasions. I usually give up after about half an hour.
  • Last night my son (8yo) went on the BLUE slide, this slide has roller/jets to push the rubber ring. His back and shoulders were injured (friction burns) due to contact with the roller/jets. Talking to the lifeguard, he said it was quite common and that the rubber rings were originally smaller and have a closed bottom to prevent these injuries. In addition, the slide runs outside. At 5pm, (last night) it was dark so when this happened he was in pitch black and terrified. The staff offered me a free pass, which I turned down and got a refund. Although I really wanted to know the BLUE slide would be made safe to use.
  • Okay facilities, but not the cleanest of places. I mostly use the gym which has some good equipment, however I've had ear infections from the pool and something is always out of order.
