Water Meadows is one of the premier indoor water based attractions in the East Midlands, where you can swim, ride the flumes and work out all under one roof. The centre offers three water rides, a wave machine, fun pool and new water features for young children and babies to ensure a fun day out for the whole family - all within a warm, sub-tropical atmosphere. The leisure pool at Water Meadows has fantastic water features including: Rapids Water Cannons Wave Machine Water Rides The wave machine with artificial waves created for the swimming pool simulates waves rolling onto a beach from the sea. The rapids are fast and furious, and the pool water is channelled down a canyon in the pool like a fast flowing river which creates a strong current in the pool. Other features include: 50m twister ride A white knuckle ride, combining 6 seconds of thrills, spills and screams that takes riders through a flume of twists, turns and steep chutes. Suitable for ages 8 and over. Under 8's may ride with an adult. Mighty falling rapids A real family experience as several people descend down the rapids together. The fast drop starts at the highest point of the building and plunges you down at high speed via a sharp bend. Suitable for ages 8 and over. Under 8's may ride with an adult. Fast drop flume How fast dare you go before you splash into the waters below? The fastest water ride in the area! Suitable for ages 8 and over. Water cannons: If all the rides aren't enough fun for you, watch out for the explosive water cannons. Are you smart enough to dodge them?

We've been taking our 9month old swimming here for about 2/3 months now and she loves it. The toddler sessions in the week are perfect for her, and the pool is so big with so many things to do and see, and different floating toys and mats and inflatables to keep her entertained. The family changing at the side of... More

Overall it's not a bad place to take the kids, reasonably priced, friendly enough staff, but the carpark what a joke, we went on a Tues February half term from Derby about 11.30 and couldn't get a parking space . How ever we noticed another car had parked at the side of the carpark so thinking no harm in this... More

Hi Lesley, We're glad you enjoyed the facilities as a whole and sorry to hear about your parking problems. Unfortunately Water Meadows has no jurisdiction over the car park as it is owned and operated by the council - their wardens patrol the car park regularly to check cars are parked legally and have paid the correct fees. Their terms... More

The pool and facilities and average but after travelling from derby and having a swim day with the kids, I entered the cafe to be told they wouldn't serve me because a party was about to start. I asked politely if we could just grab a sandwich for my two young girls as they we starving and we had a... More

We came on Saturday and under 20 pound for four of us I thought was very reasonable we were in there nearly 2 hours. Wave pool, slides (even though red one was shut) other stuff to do as well. A new café since we last visited and the changing rooms have had a make over. (think these could have been... More

The two pools, the three slides (although only two can run at once), the wave machine and all the other bits make for a good location for a kids play swim. The family changing area with big cubicles also makes life really easy. Felt it was clean and tidy. Really enjoyed it with the kids and quite well priced.

The swimming area and fun pool, slides are really good. There is a well stocked shop, vending machines and good cafe. The aquavit classes are amazing, great instructor, loads of fun. However the standards of cleanliness in the changing areas, toilets and showers leave a lot to be desired. Last week I had to pick my way through discarded nappies,... More

Paid proper price for me and 2 kids. Lockers were £1 refundable but there weren't many though we managed to get 1 large 1 for us to share. Changing rooms for shocking though, dirty, smelly, rubish around and not many either...ours stank of wee really badly. Once in the pool though, it was busy but we expected that in summer... More

Have read previous reviews so was a bit sceptical. This is a good place to have fun for a couple of hours, although some of the staff could smile every now and again
