ideal for families and anyone wanting a swim, or use of the very small gym, the changing rooms are clean, with disabled facilities

We went on Tuesday and couldn't get in as was so busy. We went back on the Wednesday, paid £3.10 to park the car - got to the reception to be told the pool was closed as it was no longer half term! Waste of time and money.

We went to waterworld and although the facility has everything you need (fitness, swimming, clean) it is looking a little dated. The same flumes are there that have been for many years. There doesnt appear to have been any upgrades to the fun pool in the last 15 years which is dissapointing. Main pool is good for a swim and... More

Took my grandchildren here, feel for small ones under 1 that the pool was a little cool for them. The oldest grandchild had great fun on the slides. Not a cheap trip, costly if your paying for all your children.

During our holiday in Cornwall we had the odd rainy day and needed something to do, we found this on a website and thought we'd give it a try. It cost me and my boyfriend just over £13 to get in. It was a lot smaller than what I thought after what we'd read on the Internet with only two... More

We came here for the afternoon during our holiday when it was raining. I thought it was quite expensive for an hour and a half a swimming. However it was clean, friendly staff, lots of life guards. The pool looked fun - slides, bridges, splashing water - great fun plus another 'normal' pool as well great! Expensive parking though

We visited with our for children (4,7,10,14) on a wet afternoon in Newquay. However we had been advised to go late afternoon to avoid crowds. How right this was. We got there at 4.30 and the pool was virtually empty it was fantastic, a snake sprayer and tiny slide for toddlers a floating snake for all ages to play on,... More

Warm fun pool with lots of things for the kids to explore. Two water flumes, one basic for younger kids and one faster & longer for older kids but neither too hairaising. Children have to be over 5 to travel alone. My 7yr old was fine on both. Plenty of lifeguards about. A lovely pool. Only criticism was a little... More

Visited this place on a rainy day due to always going as children we wanted to take our children. We queued outside in the rain.. Then queued again some more for lockers and changing facilities. We entered the tropical fun pool which was crammed to the rims literally! Had to queue for both the slides and was no room to... More

I don't know where the term water world comes from really. If you want flames and Rapids and fun then goto the oasis pool at Hendra down the road. None of these things are here. There's a few floats in the water. Seriously, what is the price all about? There is a certain smell of urine in the air. Peoples... More
