As per previous comments, parking and the finer points of how much it cost and when and where you pay is TOTALLY confusing. You do get your money back tho as long as u use the right machines.
I was annoyed at having to wait for 25 mins just to get into the pool. The man on reception was perfectly nice, but seemed fairly slow / incompetent at the job in hand. We were only going for an hour, and the price for myself and my seven year old was £9 ish, but the pricing is very odd. It would benefit from saying £5 straight or something similar. I suppose the benefit is though, that there isn't particularly a time limit on the length of time you can stay.
There was a complete melee in the pool, and there were things being thrown all over the place. I was bumped into a lot by excited kids. The wave machine only came on once in the 1.25 hours we were there, although the siren indicating waves was sounded twice, so that left my little boy a bit disappointed. There seemed to be no rhyme nor reason as to the timing of the waves.
The changing room hair driers were inadequate and the showers didn't stay on for any longer than 30 seconds. As a relative local (from west cumbria), I was really disappointed with this visit.
