The variety of activities available gives lots of choice for a family. The pool has a number of features which makes it great fun for the whole family whatever age. Only disadvantage was the long wait in the queue outside on a cold day. There were apparently no more empty lockers so we could not get in. It would have... More

Visited with my 3 year old and husband and was absolutely disgusted, the changing rooms are tiny and not enough of them, the floors are filthy, had to use the toilets and actually wretched at the stench of urine mixed with disinfectant, having a swim round the pool the tiles are covered in grime and a few plasters left lying...

Having not been here for years I was looking forward to come back here to see the improvements after the refurbishment but what a disappointment. The place was as dirty as I remembered with not much improvement apart from the new lockers, the large slide was closed due to staff shortages and the top pool slide was closed for cleaning... More

Went swimming here today with my husband and 2 boys aged 3 and 6. I found that there was plenty for both my boys to do. There were plenty of life guards surrounding the pool and other people constantly cleaning up the locker area. The tsunami wave machine is quite violent so my youngest son didn't like it but my...

Went today with my daughter after not being for a good while. I was frozen, whether inside or outside the water, the pool water was freezing and when outwith the water, the general temperature was very cold. Busy day with schools on half term but only 2 inflatables available for the water ride. The splashdown island had many water cannons... More

Good for kids has just about everything in the one building, ice skating, swimming & play area. Swimming is great for kids has a few flumes and also a whirl pool, also a small children area with small flumes. Great day out!

Really disappointed with my visit to the Time Capsule. The staff at the front desk looked miserable and were not the most friendly. There was only four family changing rooms, one of which was out of order. Waited 20 minutes on one with a crying baby, asked a member of staff if they could help me, they said they couldn't....

It's a unanimous consensus amongst local people that the staff here are far from friendly. Maybe being so near the ice rink makes them frosty. Training pool is so busy due to swimming lessons from John Smith pool reallocated at the moment. We are regulars at John smith and are grateful that our swimming lessons can be accommodated but it...
