  • I loved my day out at the aquadrome. All 3 of the awesome flumes were open. However, i went through the lazy river / rapids and the SILVER water guns were turned off. There was only some pathetic whit...  more »

  • Took my daughter here on Saturday 10th September. The reception system was slow, the queue was long, which wasn't helped by the two staff chatting away rather than concentrating on customers. The changing rooms were disgustingly dirty to the point of making me feel uncomfortable with a child, and the lagoon area was also very dirty. One of the slides was not operating, and only one slide was open and the whole area seemed tired and un-cared for. We even found a sweet wrapper in the pool. My daughter didn't mind but for me, I will not be returning soon. Terrible management of what should be a flag-ship facility for the town.
  • I have tried since Sat to get through to the number listed and no reply - is this facility still open? I am trying to organise a birthday party but when no one answers a phone over 5 days it is a little worrying if the business is still open?
  • 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
  • Well Done MrEpcGames67. If the number indicates the year you were born in, perhaps its time you grew up a little or found something constructive to do with your life. As for the Aquadrome, yes its looking a little dated and sadly, its a public swimming pool (as in, not part of a private members club) so sadly, you will get people who treat it badly and at that point, the pool has to be closed, would you honestly prefer the alternative. For the most part, its perfectly acceptable. Queues for the slides are never that bad, the rapids are good fun for half an hour and the main pool has good times for lane swimming. Gyms pretty good, would be better if all the kit was working but there is enough of it that you never really have to queue for stuff. Classes are often and there is a good variety. Parking is plentiful. Only downside is that sometimes it takes ages to get past reception and into the building.
  • 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.
