Pool is a lovely temperature, kids enjoyed the flumes but it is in dire need of a clean, the stairwell up to the flumes is filthy and the place looks generally run down. I'm surprised it passes public health inspection. Sadly won't be returning as...More

My son enjoys it, there’s always something you can’t use, however they still charge full price, why should we be paying full price without full benefit of facilities? It’s summer holidays, this place should be fully operational, the life guards are children with whistles who...More

I attended the water park facility in April and was pretty pleased with what was provided: lots of water areas, 2 flumes, a rubber ring slide with 2 or 4 person rings, rapids, waves and a fort play area thing. I didn't get to experience...More

I am very disappointed with cleanliness of the time capsule especially the toilets which always have a sewage smell. I have being going for years and sadly it seems to be getting worse which is a shame as it has so much to offer

We visited here yesterday as a couple. At first we were wondering whether to go without kids as many of the reviews are geared towards families. However, we weren't the only couple there alone so didn't feel out of place upon arrival. This a good...More

Yes they do sell swimsuits at the entrance and if I remember correctly they aren’t actually all that expensive compared to shops. And I think it’s height restrictions on the slides but don’t know exactly what height it is... More

That’s because they need the extra 30 pence to pay for the training day where they bring in expert watch snatchers to train up the staff on how to rob wee kids of their gladiators watch they got from Santa.
