Fun place for our family. Very bad working system with shower and cloth changing. However, the worst thing was the inflexible staff that charge us extra (9 Swiss franc) as we where some minutes late due to the cue with the bad system with changing cloths. The entrance is expensive, and still they charge you for just some minutes!!!!

I went there with my family but after my daughter got crushed by first the boyfriend and then the girlfriend coming down one of the slides the day turned pretty sour. The place was crowded, that atmosphere 'interesting' - one third lovers' lane; one third war zone' one third family picnic. It is expensive if things go wrong - they... More

Staff speaks English. Weather was about 5 Celsius / 40 Farenheit and all the slides and outdoor pools were open. Some slides have portions outdoors, and while you can feel the chill, it wasn't too cold. All outdoor pools are warm, so we were comfortable. We went with two families, 5 children between ages 6 and 12. I thought the... More

I know this is Switzerland but come on....this place is a joke. Totally run down. With the prices that they charge, you would think they would renovate. Waste of money. Go somewhere else.

This place is nice, but get a discount through SBB, COOP or Migros if you can. It's soooo expensive. It's really fun time. We really liked the slides and water tunnels, the wave pool is so so. The lawn is covered in bees so be careful and bring spray. The iodine pool is nice too. I've never been in one... More

Yes, it is expensive, but most things in Switzerland are, so don't come looking for a cheap day out. Do come if you want some good wet fun. The slides vary from easy through to hideously exciting. Small children can happily use Canyon and Bobsled with a supervising parent/carer. The wave pool and current pool are also fun for little... More

Yes, it's expensive. Yes, it could need a refresh at some areas. BUT, it is guaranteed that you will have a fund day ... trust me.
