“kids come 1st”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

yes the kids come 1st be they old or young. i have been in here with my grandchildren and have had a real ball. the staff go that extra mile to help and make sure you have a good time. i was only in at the bowling so am not sure what the rest of the building is like. we all had a great time and will go back again.

“Go early”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

We went there first thing in the morning, 10am as they opened the door.
It was excellent as there weren't very many people yet and changing room was all clean and dry.
Went with 2adults +2ypung kids+1baby but told 'family ticket' will be more expensive than to pay individual... Strange but ok thanks for telling us that.
But I think £5for adult is a bit too much when we are only there for kids they are not allowed themselves, also there is no adult size swimming pool so basically we pay £5 to stand in the water doing nothing. Maybe you can use the jacuzzi if you are happy enough to leave your child in the pool alone as children are not allowed in jaguzzi .
It is not a big place so by 11:30 it was getting busy. And there were big group of children coming in so we decided to leave, our choldren had really great time there!
By the time we get out and back to changing room, it's like a different place though. Changing room floor was wet and slimy with lots of hair and dirt from shoes left on it, toilet all dirty and smelly. Shower was ok but for less than 2hrs since open time, everything was too messy and enough to made me decide that we don't want to go there again. Even the pool was such fun and kids loved it so much.
They should know the place is for children and children makes mess so I don't understand why they don't juts clean the place more often, such pity.

“Not the cleaniest place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

My wife and I took our 2daughters during the week and the experience was far from a joyous one the building is in need of a refit the changing rooms are really dirty old swim shorts lying around and a bad smell lingers the cost for a family of 4 was £17.50 not worth it . I will not go back again my daughters had more fun on the beach at be one and it was free.

“Needs brought up to date!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

We usually visit waterworld when we go to Portrush and this time I wish we hadn't bothered. It was very busy, changing rooms were very grubby and really to small. The cleaner came in to clean down the floor and she wasn't very pleasant! The place really needs some money spent on it to modernise it.
