“Great for little ones”
Review of Waterworld

Waterworld
Ranked #31 of 63 things to do in Newquay
Attraction details
Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

Having mixed weather while in Cornwall we were looking for things to do with our 3 year old son. Waterworld was on our list of rainy things to do.

The place itself is very clean and has great changing facilities. It has two pools: a 25 meter lane swimming pool and a fun pool. In the fun pool there is lots to do with a water cannon, two slides, a floating snake, hippo, waterfalls, and water jets in deepish area and shallow. The room and water is quite warm without over powering. Our son loved the hippo slide!

Safety is paramount with little ones and here it appears to be taken seriously with two lifeguards in the fun pool at all times with regular rotations. I used to teach lifeguards and this is good practice. It wasn't busy when we were there but I would imagine another one would be needed for busy times.

Car parking is a little strange and it's shared by the zoo and other things. Is pay and display. You will need more time then you think! Also get there early is possible.

Overall a great place if the UK weather is not playing ball. We will be back!

A lovely pool for small children. I imagine if your a 'thrill seeker' this pool would become boring after a while.
There's 2 flume/slides that are fine for children to go on the under 5's on parents laps. The pool is relatively warm. We had no time restrictions and that made the slighty expensive entrance fee more acceptable.

I went to waterworld on a rainy day, it seemed everyone had the same idea but you can't blame them for that. I had a very nice time and enjoyed the flumes and slides!

Very disappointed £6.20 per adult & £4.20 for children plus you have to pay by the hour for parking as this doesn't belong to Waterworld but the local Council. Only 1 slide suitable for this age group and apart from the floating snake not much else to do wish we'd gone to the zoo instead. Hair dryers are extra and showers very poor you have to keep pressing them so they stay on which is not very good when you're trying to rinse 2 childrens hair, not enough showers for the amount of people wanting to use them. So stood shivering whilst waiting.
Wouldn't recommend!

me & my boyfriend took his 2 daughters aged 5 & 6 to the funpool, it consisted of a large shallow pool with accessorys floating snake, squirting water pistols & one small pink waterslide & one bigger waterslide. it was fun watching my other half behave like a big kid going down the slide with his little ones & i have to admit i had fun too. the only problem was when we went to leave the little ones didnt want to. :)
