It was a nice place to relax and have fun in the water. We were fortunate because it wasn't crowded. Might be less fun when crowded!

It was good but the water in the Valley was very chilling. If i compare with Sunway Lagoon, Malaysia I would prefer Sunway Lagoon.

I have seen better water parks. There is the wave pool and then a couple of slides. If you really want the beach and waves, head to the beach at Durban or the Cape...

great facilities, but if you go on a public holiday or peak season the place is a zoo - standing room only in the large wave pool, long queues everywhere, they even ran out of lockers

This was a fun place for the family to spend the day. We had free admission from staying at the Cascades, and easily found supplied beach chairs to hang out in for the afternoon.

A good water park, however there isn't a massive selection of slides, however the slides that they do have are pretty good! There is also a very big wave pool and a lazy river, and reasonably priced shops and food outlets on site.
