  • We have been a few times awesome flumes for everyone and the spa is really nice and relaxing. You can eat around the pool edge which makes the day a lot less stressful is children wanting food/ drinks...  more »

  • Great place with lots of slides. Gets very busy around lunchtime and the afternoon, making very long queues to get on anything. Recommend going early morning and leaving around lunch time, or go in the off season. Great place for adults and kids alike. If the adults want to relax there is a small adults only spa including saunas, steam rooms and foot spas with ice to cool off. Residents also get half price on all entry, well worth a visit.
  • This place used to be great but now it's very expensive. 16 pound just to swim and when I say swim I mean stand in shallow wasit deep water rammed with people even on quiet days. There is the wave pool but only at the farthest end is it really suitable for swimming. The slide here are fairly good but cost an additional 7 pound for anything but the most basic baby slides. The queues to these can get very long and on a busy day would be awful. They also turn off the best slide for hours at a time which is particularly poor. You can obtain food and drink here on the wet side which now has a cashless system where by you pay money up front on to a wristband and you can use that credit to buy things once in the pools. A clever an innovative solution to carrying money rather than simply get a bit of cash from the changing room or a crafty way of hoping to keep the excess credit you haven't spent when you leave which you are supposed to claim back. Overall it's great for kids but then they aren't paying and even kids tickets are expensive.
  • Fun day out with the kids. We went out of season so it wasn't to busy. Money off for locals which is always a bonus, just take proof of residence. You can rent a locker for £2 which is return when you hand the band back. Food is quite expensive but better if you get one of the meal deals, not much vegetarian choices and if your vegan there is only chips!
  • Fantastic if you love water slides. Great family day out.. Can spend at least 5 hours + .. Exhausting but great fun...
  • Absolutely a wonderful day out. Went on a off peak Monday was very quiet, almost no queues at all. Amazing value for money, just be aware on quieter days the master blaster is only open for a hour in the morning and two hours in the afternoon but there was plenty to do still and also the park has shorter hours.
