We arrived at Lake Tekapo and booked into our lakeside house before finally deciding to head to Tekapo Springs later in the evening near closing time. We were rugged up since it was a little chilly but the snow tubing park warmed us up in a hurry! There was not many people so we had plenty of turns at the track and the kids had a ball with it.
The ice skating was ok, 4 out of 6 of us tried it and they thought that was a treat as its not something we do often. The outside area really is drab and could do with something to lift the mood! There is what I would consider a normal house sized fire place down one end of the building and you can stand a few people in front of it but not really pleasing to the eye.. Going inside was much warmer!
The Hot pools were also ok - warm after the snow tubing! We did not have as long in here as we spent the full hour allowed on the tubes before making our way to the other activities but this made it near to their closing time.
Alot of fun though especially because we werent amongst the big crowds. Very clean but looks quite old.. but with the name change I am not sure they did rejuvenate the area. The scenery is gorgeous!!
