Different from your average swim for little ones. Lots of fun activities kept our 2 year old happy. Flumes not worth the queue wait though as you can't see how big the queue is until your in it. Overall good and our child enjoyed herself.

There’s a small shallower section that has a waterfall. There’s a small slide. 2 jacuzzi areas and a sort of whirlpool current section that is switched on and off all day. There are 2 flumes. HTH :)
