A huge range of aquatics under one roof. . .
The facility has a huge aquatic area with five indoor pools, two outdoor pools and an 80 metre all weather waterslide.

The freeform beach entry leisure pool has a frogslide, umbrella, fan, sieve and pole shower water features, and an ankle deep toddlers wading pool. The wading pool and small section of the leisure pool also have air bubble beds that operate in succession with the spray features. The leisure pool is 0.9 metres deep at its deepest point and is maintained at 31 degrees celsius. The short ends of the pool have part depth seats. This is a no dive pool.

The 50 metre lap pool has a wet deck concourse and 8 divisible lanes. Accessibility is provided by two sets of steps at the shallow end (0.9 metres), wall mounted ladders at mid and deep end (1.6 metres), and a ramp entry. This pool is maintained at 28.5 degrees celsius. This is a no dive pool.

A spacious spa is situated next to the leisure pool and is 0.9 metres deep. Access is via steps or a pneumatic hoist is available. The spa is maintained at 37 degrees celsius and has provides water jets. Aeration via bubbles is not available.

Lessons and parties are held in the program pool which is 0.9 metres at its shallowest and 1.1 metres at the deepest. Access is via full breadth steps or a pneumatic hoist is available. This pool has water basketball rings and is maintained at 31.5 degrees celsius. This is a no dive pool.

The 80 metre indoor waterslide is a prominent feature of the facility. Accessibility is by staircase into the slide tower. Participants launch into the slide tube and can take as little as 13 seconds to finish in the flume. The flume is a shallow slide finish with a variable depth.

Review:


Very extensive range of indoor and outdoor pools. There is a frog slide for toddlers and a 80m waterslide for 4 years and older. It is not possible to have children on your lap on the waterslide. It is necessary to buy separate tickets for the waterslide. The slide only operates for limited hours and the allocation of tickets can be exhausted very quickly. Therefore do not have your heart set on going down the waterslide because that may not be possible at all times. The slide is fully enclosed but there is plenty of light inside and the ride is quite slow.

When there are no lessons or parties, the program pool is quiet and warm. However, be careful when getting into the pool. When we were there, the pool had been overfilled and the plastic decking lining the inside of the pool floated loose. When I put my foot down on the decking it gave way and resulted in quite bad abrasions and bruises on my lower leg. I have no way of knowing whether this was an isolated incident or a general malaise about safety.

Outside is a wooden boat containing a large picnic table, deck chairs, BBQ, shelters and tables.

To the Management RE: Letter of Complaint I had my son's birthday last Saturday and I was not happy of your catering service. I paid for the catered birthday party. The services of the 2 staff during the play time were good, the kids really had fun. After the kids did the big slide, the kids were asked to go the room to have something to eat. They were given an individual cups with the chips and the chicken nuggets and party pies were on the big plate placed in the middle of the table, but they did not provide plastics plates! For the drinks, I asked for a jug of water, I was told, you won't provide water!!! They did not even provide napkins. When the ice cream cake was delivered, they only provided a plastic forks but, without a plate???? It was an ice cream cake, why it was forks? And as I said, plates weren't supplied????? It was a strange service. And also, nearly after 2:30, we were asked to pack up because according to the staff, there is another party after our party. So, we were forced to get out of that room and stayed outside. We left the place nearly 4:30, no one occupied that room! I was not happy about it. I am hoping you will change your service!
