Coral Reef - Bracknell's Water World

It is difficult to rate this place.

For kids – 5years, 3.5 years and 1.5 years – this place is a modern wonder of the world. A pirate ship in the water, a slide attached to it, a snake that sprays water, buckets that tip water on your head when you least expect it, a plastic volcano that erupts and flings water into the center of the main pool, fake rocks to climb on, a family water slide, cheap sausages and chips and to top it all off machines dispensing 20p servings of minstrels and mentos at the exit. This place is nothing less than the stuff of dreams.

For the adult – the best comparison has to be one of those Roman “pool parties” but without the good bits. A heaving mass of tattooed Thames Valley flesh, thrown together in a warm, cramped stew of chlorine and the liquids all the kids can’t keep inside them. Food that will have blocked your arteries before you’ve got out of the car park, a 30 minute queue to get in the door and no car parking places (lunchtime on Sunday in January).

So how to rate this place? Kids adore it. Adults (or at least this one) would rather chew his own arm off than go again. I guess that’s a straight ‘average then.

So clean, tidy & warm in comparison to our local leisure pool. Some areas were looking old but that is to be expected. Kids are looking forward to the hour drive to visit again!

We went with two children 11 and 8 years. They had an excellent time in the pool and on the slides. There is a good variety of slides and depths for all ages. The only downside is that it gets very busy. I would advise getting at opening time.

This is a great place for kids to have a lot of fun, especially on a rainy day.Plenty of water features and areas for different ages. The place is quite loud, not because of kids, but water noise, and if you can leave your kids with an adult, some quiet time can be had in great saunas. Definitely will visit again, plenty of fun and a great value.
