We visited while on holiday with another family in Napier. The kids loved it, wasn't too busy but still plenty of staff keeping eyes on swimmers. Looked well maintained. We went back again the next day for the kids to have another swim!

Took the entire family, 15 people aged 2-63, everyone had a great time. Good variety of activities for everyone. We were in early and got a great shady spot. Once it was full not all families had the same. Take a picnic to cut costs.

Kia ora, the swim pass covers the pools and slides, but does not allow the bearer access to the go carts, bumper boats, jungle jeeps or the mini putt. I hope this helps.

Kia ora, the Park is just open on the weekends at the moment, with our last day of the summer being easter Monday, the 28 March 2016. I hope this helps.

Response from Peran H | Property representative |
Kia ora, we have a few different options so best to check out our web site. Also, we open at 10am and rides and slides and pools close at 5.30pm and the park shuts at 6pm. I hope this helps.
