I have been to other Aqualands in August and had a great family day out but this place was shocking AVOID This park seems smaller than some of the others we have been too. On arrival paid the over price family ticket and went straight to the shop to pay for the fast pass. this queue was so long we... More

Had a blast here. .. I would arrive early though. Queue to get in is a nightmare of shoving and squashing but once inside there is plenty of room for you to bag some Sun recliners for the day and enjoy the rides. Something for everyone from little tits to adrenaline seekers to gentle swim time to fun waves in... More

Very expensive family trip. Very busy. Waited in excess of 30mins for rides. Very miserable staff. Several food outlets closed mid afternoon despite long queues. Queued for showers at the end of day to find the water had been switched off as park had closed. Even hand basin water turned off. Herded out like cattle. Not enough shade or loungers.

There were lots of people, waiting time if you did not have a fast pass was between 20 and 30 minutes. There were only 2 water slides that you could use alone, for the rest they said it is for 2 persons and you are not allowed to use them solo; I have asked and their response was it is... More

The kids were desperate to go to a good water park and this was the closest to where we were staying. However we were quite concerned about what we might find, having read all the reviews....we took the driving tip outlined in the previous review to avoid the bottle necks (thanks it worked brilliantly), although the road has been changed...

After reading previous reviews wasn't expecting very much, but we have a family of four children from the ages of 10-19 who really wanted to go, so booked tickets online and took the plunge (pardon the pun). Took tips from previous reviews by coming of main road early to avoid queues at main turn off (it worked), and got there... More

We spent a day here and had a good time. We had to queue for about 25-30 minutes for some of the more popular rides and, due to the wind on the day we went, it did get a bit chilly at times. Overall a good family day out.

Stay away. Food is awful and exaggeratedly overpriced. Drinks, too. It´s all about getting you to spend money, like the "fast pass" to avoid the otherwise eternal queues. Directions on tickets purchased online are wrong. We wasted one hour trying to find the place. We asked for the management to take responsibility and compensate the time not spent in the... More

A bit sad. If you don't buy the additional fast pass you spend your time in the queue. The food very expensive and of bad quality. Toilet? Even though they clean it every hour, it's disgusting.
