  • Massive and busy especially on a wet Saturday morning, when we visited. The ice skating ring is big, but queued for about 20 kind to get tickets. And they never told us at the till that we had to pay extra for the penguin for our 3 year old. The soft play is nice but they don't sell any baby food at all so take supplies. Didn't visit the swimming pool but will definitely do next time we are down there because it looked very impressive! Ample parking.
  • We went to experience the swim and skate, changing rooms were clean enough but the edges of the pool look like they need a deep clean or refurb. The skating was good but many young teens zipping around and not having concern for the less able skaters around them. The catering was the worst part of our day, it really was disappointing especially considering the captive audience they have. We tried the pub first, we walked in and it wasn't very busy, only about 3 other tables were taken. I went to the bar to order our food, after waiting for the one member of staff to finish his conversation with someone else who worked there he the told me that there would be a 40 minute wait for food!!! It wasn't even busy so I'd hate to think how long it takes on a busy day! As we didn't want to miss our skating session we went to the refresh eating outlet, well that was just as bad! We got there and it was deserted, no staff member in sight. When one did finally turn up he was the slowest food worker I've ever experienced, maybe it was his first hour on the job. After we had ordered our already made sandwiches, we did this as it had taken so long to get our food and didn't want to miss anymore of our skating session, the queue started to grow and grow with people wanting to order. It was taking the chap so long to serve people that the people waiting got bored and probably walked to Doncaster to get their food quicker!!! We left after finishing our average tasting sandwiches and went for what was left of our skating session. A good day had the shine taken off it by our poor experience with the food outlets, it could be so much better!!!
  • Very good value for a family ticket for swim and skate (was £25 for 2 adults 2 children for a swim session and an ice-skating session) Book online for best value and to avoid queues. The pool is great with various slides for different ages and levels of adventure. There is even a very shallow bit for tots with little slides. There is a "lazy river" type thing that flows outside the building which was cool. The ice skating has a rink with two levels and a slope between them so that was fun and a bit scary for a beginner. Parking was free and there is a retail park very nearby /across the road with fast food outlets and a big supermarket for snacks etc afterwards.
  • The best day out. Ice skating and swimming in one place. Fantastic. If your taking the kids and your not a skater or a swimmer there is a couple of little cafes indoors for tea, coffee etc and soft drinks. There is also a safe play area for the little ones. As expected can be busy on weekends and school holidays but definitely worth a visit.
  • Haven't been here since I was a kid. I took my 7 year old ice skating for the first time the website prices didn't really add up I was going to book online and pay £24 when I got there and paid it cost me £11.50 so was better than expected. The ice rink itself was good and always a steward on checking up on everything. My little girl used the penguins to help her which should of been £20 deposit but there was no one on the desk so everyone was taking them ha. Car parking is aweful but they wont change that. A good venue has everything there you need!!!
