“Disappointing for an 8 year old”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We went to the Europabad on a wednesday. There were only 15 people in the swimming part, we didn't visit the sauna part. Because it was wednesday, we could visit 4 hours for the price of 2 hours.

We came here especially for the slides, but those were disappointing. One red slide was almost vertical, so it looked to scary for an 8 year old. An other black slide was completely closed.

There was a wild water rapid but this was only allowed for children that were 10 years old and at least 1.35 meters tall. The information panel said that it was possible to get an injury in the wild water rapid and this information panel was right. The waterstream was extremely powerfull, about three times as strong as the other wild water rapids I've visited, and there are very sharp bends. Although I am a very experienced swimmer in open water my elbow got badly hurt. You really need a special kind of technique to get down the rapid safely. I also think this rapid with its sharp bends is not suited to tall people, because the bends are not big enough.

Fortunately there was one really nice slide that needed to be used with a big float. You had to drag the float from the cellar up four stairs, so it was a good workout too. There was a nice outdoor pool with really warm water and "bubble sofas" and also a big indoor steamroom in the swimming area.

For really small children it is a nice complex. There is a small slide, a big warm shallow pool and an attractive water play area.

“Family fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

Quite a variety of things to do here. A different experience from North American pools with some unique features that we had never seen. We were sad the waterslide was closed for renovation but it will reopen soon. Worth the price of admission.

“Large pools, 4 fun slides, and a wonderul spa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

Great slides for the kids, reasonably priced food at the restaurant, and an absolutely wonderful spa upstairs. There were numerous saunas, cold bath, outdoor garden and the jacuzzi was fashioned with slate granite that made you feel like you were in a natural pond.

Right around noon, they open up a very neat obstacle course in the lap pool downstairs, that goes for an hour. All the kids had a super fun time!
