“Way too expensive!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Renovated in 2013, it's very modern but it doesn't rate above average.
Entrance: 3 adults + 2 small children = $64
They charge as much as Iceland's Blue Lagoon, but this ain't the Blue Lagoon!

The swimming complex should be real good, if everything worked. It has two 4-story water slides, wet and dry saunas. There is also a crowded warm water pool used for warming up.
The water temperature was very good in all the pools.

The gym is ridiculously expensive, although I can afford it, there are much better gyms in Lund for a lot less. I guess they charge more because "they have a swimming pool", but all that comes to even more extra charges and watch out for the opening hours.
The swimming pool used for training, teaching to swim or for those in wheel chairs closes at 15.00, and so does the lap-swimming pool.

The wave machine was broken. The outdoor extension of the indoor pool was closed.

The main water slide's joins are rough (sharp), I cut my foot (ripped the skin) in it to the point that it was bleeding. It's like it wasn't tested before going operational.
Their first-aid facility was totally worthless, I was offered some hand-cleaning alcohol to clean it with and they had band-aids of the type we have in the office for paper cuts.

Besides all the inconveniences, the kids really like the pool and we will visit it more times because it is the ONLY place to swim in Lund.
They have a summer outdoor pool (Shelbybaddet) about 1km from there, it's worthless.

The pool is alright, but expect little for your money.
The service is typical of a place ran by the state.
