The place has lots to offer only thing I would say is it could do with a good clean. Put it this way 5 of us went in verruca free and 3 of us came home with them. There was also clumps of hair round the edges😠

Called in for a game of ten pin bowling and had a great time. Premises were spotless and very friendly staff. Will definitely be back.

Cheap day out. very crowded so we couldn't swim and left after an hour. Lifeguards were round pool but they let a lot of behaviour slip from teenagers that was dangerous.

This was a bit rubbish really and at £20 for a family of four I'd be expecting a lot more. It's no greater than your average leisure centre, hardly 'Water World'.

This pool could do with a bit of a face lift to be honest, inside and outside is very dated and you can see its old and shabby. The changing areas are smelly and you really need a good shower at home inside of this place to feel clean. Pity really because it is a nice place. Staff are young... More

I visited Waterworld yesterday with my daughters as a treat. At the reception desk I asked for change for the lockers and hairdryers, I was told to use the machine which did not work - the receptionist did not have change so had to go to another reception area. The locker took my money but did not lock. I had... More

Waterworld was a must for the kids as it is sheer excitement with a large play area. However walking into the changing room and you can feel how dirty it is. The floor was just horrible to walk on and watching a lifeguard 'clean' it by using a squidgy to move the water down a drain and follow with a... More

Very disappointed in the changing facilities. The floors were very unhygienic. I had my 6 year old son with me and was horrified to discover the showers were scalding leaving it impossible to shower him or myself.
