Pools are freezing and are always filled with dead flies and bugs. Changing rooms are terrible and untidy. Only one good slide which is the big yellow one and just two remind you there are 2 slides. Good for kids.

This place is a disgrace! There is 0 privacy in the changing area, the showers are ridiculous, the staff are ignorant and the pool is filthy. The place needs shut down, certainly wouldn't visit this DUMP ever again,

Even on a cloudy day, it can be enjoyed as the water is warm. Good value for an afternoon. Open from 12 noon. Changing rooms. Parents can stay by poolside.

A great day out! Once in, you can stay here as long as you like. My daughter loved the flume, the pool is long enough for a decent swim if not too busy, variety of depths of water. The pool is warm too. Make sure...More

Great area for kids of all ages, with plenty of sitting room for adults to watch. Be aware that all children under 8 need to be accompanied by an adult in the pool, my husband had to go looking for shorts so that he could...More
