We camped at the National Watersports Centre recently and visited the activity centre a couple of times during the week. We have young kids but I would say the activity centre with mini golf, segway and high ropes courlse is excellent! We all tried one of these activities and it is very good value. A small positive which I feel... More

Arrived at 1pm, (FREE parking) we just did the sky rail for £4 each as you had to get in very early to buy and book segway - you cannot book them ahead of time and its first come first served and they only have 5 segways. Having said that it is worth the effort of getting up early if... More

Visited the new fun park this week. Paid the £9 each for the 3 activity package. Mini golf, short but fun, interesting with it below the sky rail. Son loved the segways, 10 minutes is about right as arms start to get tired. Sky rail is amazing, can't believe I even went up there! all in all around 2hours +... More

Taken the grandchildren (12 & 8) there twice this summer and they loved the family fun park - Segways, hire wire, mini golf, cycles. Kids thoroughly enjoyed but disappointed with the sudden price hike without notice. Last week £11.99 for all attractions, today dropped cycles because they were to popular and lowered price for combined other attractions to £9. If... More

Hi Phillip, Many thanks for taking the time to leave your review and we're glad your grandchildren enjoyed their visit to us. Apologies for any confusion around the cycle hire and it being taken out of the package - this is due to a lot of our bikes currently undergoing maintenance and therefore we have had to take this action...

Visited as part of a group of 11, pre-booked well in advance for rafting and the Skyrail. Provided with full equipment and training for the rafting, then taken on 3 runs of the course in inflatable dinghies big enough for 6-8. Choice of routes depending on the experience/terror of us rowers. Experienced expert mainly in control of the raft, but... More

Spent the day at the family fun park at water sport centre. Brilliant value at £11.99 each for segway, cycling, crazy golf and sky ropes. Kids loved it, staff really helpful and friendly. It poured down but was a lovely day. Would definitely recommend.

If you go to a regatta you expect all weathers & we got them! Go prepared especially in the boot dept. as the area quickly turns into a quagmire when it rains. This is a great place to watch rowing events etc.& go for walks. It's best to take a picnic as there's only one food outlet & it's very... More
