I have been visiting the Rapids with my kids for over a decade and although we always have fun on each visit, this time was our worst experience. My main issue is that the place desperately needs investment. It's outdated and showing it's age. My...More

Have been coming here for years with the family. This latest visit at the end of the school holidays has shown me that the complex needs a lot of love. A lot of the features ( tipping barrel, water squirters,) do not work and the...More
