Today I visited the time capsule for the first time in a few years with some family and was very disappointed with the experience. After paying £40 for the 6 of us to enter, we went into the park to find that they do not...More

This place is awesome, however, there is generally always a toilet smell amongst the shower area, indicating people urinating while showering either before or after a swim. This can be very off-putting. It's an amazing day out but can be ruined by customers not adhering...More

Visited today and this place is great. I didn’t notice any dirt, or a lack of changing rooms or lockers, nor did I think the pool was cold. The staff were professional and helpful. The price was very reasonable. No faults here.

Went last weekend with the family, was a good laugh and prices are affordable. Life guards were very watchful. It could do with a clean tho and maybe a wee update

My best advice would be, don't go. It is a filthy, run down place that is an accident waiting to happen!! You could, however, go to the Water Palace in Hamilton. Much more fun and above all, it is clean...! There are buses... More

The kids must be at least 1.2m and competent swimmers to use the bigger flumes. There are a couple of smaller flumes that smaller kids can go on with an adult.
