“Great Place, Shut Down...”
This attraction is a fun-day out for the entire family, which offers a small pool just for swimming and a larger pool with a wave machine and lazy river.

Sadly Water World is now closed, it will be remembered by all of us.. It was great whilst it lasted but unfortunately it's gone, knocked down, perished..

Builders have been in and it's been knocked down so it should be off your site, the reason for knocking it down is that they are building a complex

arrived extremely excited because it is said on the sight that the park is open. Only to find out that park is closed. Very little information were given about when the park will be open again.

We used to go here every week with my family, as a child the selection of things to do is impressive. A refurbishment would have kept this place going for a long time, but instead it's going to be demolished. What a shame. 28DL anyone?

This was a brilliant pool especially for the young children who aren't sure of water slides. It has sadly now closed - hence why my review isn't lengthy!!

We went during October half term and whilst it got busy around 12, before that and after 3pm (as the staff advised us) it was quieter. The pool does have small bits of debris but these are from the floats provided and pads used on...More
