Great fun and worth doing but a little on the pricey side at $22 per person. Great bathrooms (floors are heated) with lockers available at a cost of $2 for 2 hours. You are able to bring food in which meant we were able to have a picnic during our stay.

Been here multiple times, in snow rain or shine it's a place for the whole family. Try the 40 degree pools! My favourite.

We picked a great time to visit as the pools were not that crowded. I do think the entry prices are on the high side as you cannot spend more than 2 hours in the water so $44 for 2 is not what you call value for money, but still a very relaxing experience. Certainly appreciate the adults only pools... More

Always a great family day out! The little one enjoyed the smaller slides and the waterfall and my big kid went wild over the bigger, more adventurous water slides. We went in the early afternoon, which was ideal, as it was quiet enough not feel crowded, and the lines for the water slide weren't too long. After about 3.30 it... More

We went to the hot pools on a rainy day, and having rain drizzling down while sitting in a 40 degree pool was so nice. Also had massage and sauna. Spa facilities are excellent, and the staff were super helpful and friendly.

We thought the pools would be more natural, the temperatures were nice and the price was fairly reasonable, a bit overcrowded.

From the moment we stepped out of the car you could smell the stench from the pools. The lady on the front desk seemed like she didn't want to be there and didn't explain any of the pricing to us. We walked out the doors expecting to see some nice relaxing natural hot pools to find crowded commercial blue plastic... More

2-3 day passes available at a discount, but the amount of people that we went with spending that per person per day, becomes costly. The pools itself was lovely though and relaxing.
