Decided to take kids swimming since it was great weather and drove through from falkirk, which is a good distance away, only to be told I'm not responsible enough to look after my own 3 kids in their pool! Being a veteran and having been...More

My son played ice hockey game here, I didn’t know there was a water park next to the rink, it looks great !! Would never have thought I’d want to return to Coatbridge - but I do !

The kids must be at least 1.2m and competent swimmers to use the bigger flumes. There are a couple of smaller flumes that smaller kids can go on with an adult.
