We decided to take the grandkids to an indoor pool on a very cold winters day. We called the local pools, then saw this property had a water slide in their pool. We called for information because we were going to drive a far distance if we picked this place. We were told that the slide opened at 3:00pm and the cost would be $10 each. I advised the gal that we'd be there before 3, and did we have to wait to go into the pool. She said No and that we'd just be charged $7 if we arrived before 3:00pm. We arrived at 2:20pm and were charged $10 each. When I questioned the gal at the counter, she said the rates are $10 beginning at 3:00pm. I asked her for the time. She said "2:20, but because it's close to 3:00pm, we'll need to charge you $10 each." I understand the higher cost when you're able to use the slide, but we swam for 40 minutes w/o any slide. Certainly worth it to us to do, but now that we paid the waterslide fee, we wanted to be able to use it immediately. They need to stick with the time rules they've created. Does the increased cost start at 3:00 or 2:20? Does it depend on who is at the desk collecting the money?
We were glad to see the pool was clean, the tables and chairs were set up nicely with towels and the staff was friendly.
The bathroom was in rough shape, with wet paper towels on the floor around the stool, as if there was a leak. And since all the users were from the pool, and barefoot, that's a concern.
