  • This company cares more about making money than the families. Unless I wanted to pay £16.50 to sit in a cafe I could not keep an eye on my 12 year old daughter and her 2 friends. Anyone could be in th...  more »

  • Visited when it was fairly quiet so no queue. Was quite surprised at price though quite expensive and extra if you wanted to go on large slides. My 7 year old grandson enjoyed it but limited slides for younger kids and smaller then I thought it would be. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food available but can't comment on quality as thought it was quite pricey so went elsewhere to eat.
  • Overall a good day out. Our 7 year old and 2 year old enjoyed it. The only downside is you need to buy extra wristbands to go on the other slides, which to be honest it is already quite expensive. Other than that plenty of room in the changing rooms and easily accessible
  • Value for money. Clean. Well staffed. Knowledgeable staff. Staff were all focused on the job. Lots of regular station changes as it must be all consuming and drain for staff as so busy. We felt safe all day with young kids.
  • Expensive and a bit tatty. Cramped. We booked on line and on arrival were asked for an extra £6.50 each for the big slides! I didn't pay for that but the rest did. On entry I thought I would try to swim a few lengths - no chance ! Not a place for swimmers. So failing that I thought OK there's a spa. But that was also an extra @ £6.50. This involved going back to the locker to get payment. The spa was singularly uninspiring. Luke warm foot bath (with bubbles) a steam room next to it with no steam, a steam room with salt and aromatics which did at least have steam, and an extremely hot sauna, the only thing of note.
  • Great fun for the family. Lovely and warm. Take lots of money. Older/ more adventurous kids (8+) def need the pass for the "hyper zone". There's a private area with hot tub for up to 8 people I've got my eye on too next time if I win the lottery.
