Olympic Swimming Complex

Attraction details
Owner description: Heated, Olympic sized 50 meter swimming pool with ten, seven and five meter diving platforms as well as three and one meter spring boards. Curly slides for the ride of your life or the new speed slides shoot you down at over 35 miles per hour. Lots of grass space for picnicking or you can purchase food at the on-site grill. Outdoor pool is open the summer months only. the Indoor Aquatic Center is open all year with a poolside climbing wall, springboards and basketball hoops. Heated floors throughout the dressing rooms provide warmth and comfort for all swimmers. Coming in winter of 2013 is an indoor kiddie play area with all the fun a zero depth splash and play area can provide. Year round fun coupled with access to the World Famous Hot Pools make this a must see and do destination.

My whole family loves it here. There are a bunch of fun slides to go on as well as diving boards and platforms to jump off of. Very fun. There is also an indoor pool, but we've never used that.

There are 2 pools. One inside and one out. There are 5 diving levels outside. One is HIGH. You have to sign a release of liability before going out to the pool and you wear a braclet so they know before you can go off the high ones. There are 3 slides outside. 2 of them go over the road by the pool over a walking bridge. They are fun! Take chairs, blankets, coolers, umbrellas, or whatever so you have somewhere to hang out when not swimming! There are some trees but they are not around the pool. You can take food and drinks but not in glass. There is a lunch counter but it is spendy! You can rent tubes right by the pool to float the river through Lava too. Be careful though because there are some serious under currents in places that will get you if you fall in. There's plenty of places to camp and hotels if you want to stay in Lava. Lava has hot pools that are relaxing too so there is plenty to do for a weekend or a couple of days. It's pretty packed on the weekends during the summer so if you go try during the week! The olympic pools are only open in the summer. The hot pools all year round. You can rent suits if you have to...

I went here with my family years ago in September and had a blast! The warm water felt great against the cooling mountain air. There were only a few other people there at the time so we were able to enjoy all the slides and the platforms without waiting in long lines. With such great memories, we revisited this past Fourth of July. It was unpleasant being in the hot water during the 90 degree heat of the day. Also the lines were so long that we were only able to do the slides and platform a couple of times. The pool was also very crowded. I highly recommend this attraction but I'd do it again during the fringe season, like May or September for cooler weather and less crowds!

We went here on Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2012 when they have a family discount. We purchased the combo pass which allows you all day access to both this Swimming Complex and the Hot Springs on the other side of town. There is lots of shallow water for our younger kids (3 & 7) and plenty of swimming water for our older kids (10-16). The indoor diving boards were a hoot and the kids roared every time I made a huge splash high enough to touch the tall ceiling. They are staffed with lots of lifeguards. The outdoor pool is very big! We had swimming races and did lots of jumps, flips and dives off the 4 spring boards (2 higher, 2 lower). Then there are the 3 (much taller) platforms to jump from. It's no wonder you must sign a liability waiver before you're allowed onto these. I'm afraid of heights but I barely mustered the courage to jump off the lowest of the three. No one in my family jumped from the 2 highest platforms.

The 2 curly water slides were fun, but short. They also need a little work as they would scrape my back on the spots where the slide units are connected together. It is a 56-step climb to the top of these two slides. The other 2 slides are a 111-step climb to the top and they are a LOT faster!

We also checked out a basketball to shoot on their pool-side basketball hoops.

I just felt it was a little over-priced for a large family. We paid around $80 for the discounted Wednesday special for our whole family of 9. We were told that weekends get considerably more crowded too which would make the slide lines almost not worth it.
