“I booked the Aqua Park recently for myself and 4 kids aged 7 to 16. It was a brilliant experience, the 9 year old said it was the best day ever! Staff were fantastic and very safety conscious, just what you want when combining kids and water. Would totally recommend it as a fun day out for the the family, friends, school tour or with a sports team/club as an activity day.” – Mum of 2, Michelle
