Quite pricey but good fun while it was quiet. Got far too crowded so we cut our visit shorter than it would have been. To queue for over half an hour for a few seconds slide was getting a bit much. Also, we didn't upgrade to include all the slides and we weren't sure what we could or couldn't go... More

Brilliant place to go with kids. All though the prices to get in. You can spend all day in the pool. As for to many people in the pool. The management have procedures to follow for health and safety and normal operating procedures for the swimming pool. I know this as I'm myself a lifeguard with over 20 years experience... More

Far too many people allowed in. You could not swim we had to keep tight hold of the kids. Impossible to enjoy the facilities. Quite clearly they were only concerned about money in the till as they allowed far too many people in. It was ok for the first hour then it was just rammed. My tip would be to... More

Brought my son for his 4th birthday as he was desperate to play on the slides and he wasn't disappointed. There was lots for him to do in the 3 hours we were there. He was able to play on all of the free slides which was a bonus as I thought there would only be a few kiddie rides.... More

A really good day out for people with disabilities as it has an accessible changing room with tracking hoist and a ramp to enter the pool.

This is by far one of the best waterparks I've ever been in, the slides are great and the food very good too. The customer service is second to none and they have awards on display to say as much. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff they were eager to help.

Wow brillant waterpark, great slides :) I do think the price should either include the four main watersides and go up in price for admission or the hyper zone price needs to be cheaper. The hyper zone slides were amazing :) especially the Aztec falls ones and the Masterblaster. The food was lovely and hot although I think it would... More

The water was cold and there was long queues. Boyfriend bruised his foot on one of the rides but first aid was brilliant, I would go back but the price is extortionate and is only made worse by the price of the food and drink in there, in future you should be able to bring your own!
