A great place to take the grandchildren who are very young and love water ( like their nannan!) Very friendly attentive staff with a complex that boasts excellent cleanliness/hygiene and safety being paramount!! Will definitely be visiting again very soon ☺

Pre-booked the tickets so we avoided the queue and hour wait time which was great. Plenty of parking as they had an overspill. Family Changing area a bit busy but we managed to find a large changing room for us all without too much wait....More

It's a fantastic, fun filled place for everyone, with ten pin bowling, swimming/ relaxation area, exercise classes, gym, constant events on and a nice bar area to sit and relax, have a drink and a meal.something for everyone... certainly worth a visit

Good family attraction although quite expensive but as it's cold outside an inside venue was a good choice. The children throughly enjoyed it.

Great fun for kids of all ages. My two are aged 3 and 6 and swim at a beginner level so were stoked to find slides that they could confidently ride. Waves in main pool can be a bit intense for younger kids

It's a nice place to go locally with friends as there's quite a few things to do but personally I think there needs to be more better slides. The diving boards are very fun though.👍🌊

We took the children after school and they had a fab time. Only downside is the main pool was closed for swimming lessons
