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.

I used to go here with my family every weekend and it was absolutely superb; lots to do, clean and a truly great day out. I heard it was closing and couldn't for the life of me understand why, so I visited. The comparison with the last time I went was astonishing. It was utterly disgusting; dirty cold and neglected....

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 one of the 3 slides. The lazy river flowing in a circle with a gentle... More

My partner, myself & our 4yr old were on holiday in york & had been looking forward to going here. Had I read the reviews first we would not have gone! The water was anything but clear & had so many bits floating from the disintergrating floats that were being used. U begged my daughter to try not to swallow... More

Couldn't fault them, give a very generous group discount (30+) and we all loved it! Fun slides, great pools with a wave machine we had a great few hours! Changing rooms were ok and the on site canteen served good priced hot food served quite quickly. Staff friendly and helpful, thanks to you all for our brilliant afternoon!
