Good day out

Went swimming here today with my husband and 2 boys aged 3 and 6. I found that there was plenty for both my boys to do. There were plenty of life guards surrounding the pool and... read more

Having not been here for years I was looking forward to come back here to see the improvements after the refurbishment but what a disappointment. The place was as dirty as I remembered with not much improvement apart from the new lockers, the large slide was closed due to staff shortages and the top pool slide was closed for cleaning... More

Went swimming here today with my husband and 2 boys aged 3 and 6. I found that there was plenty for both my boys to do. There were plenty of life guards surrounding the pool and other people constantly cleaning up the locker area. The tsunami wave machine is quite violent so my youngest son didn't like it but my...

Went today with my daughter after not being for a good while. I was frozen, whether inside or outside the water, the pool water was freezing and when outwith the water, the general temperature was very cold. Busy day with schools on half term but only 2 inflatables available for the water ride. The splashdown island had many water cannons... More

Good for kids has just about everything in the one building, ice skating, swimming & play area. Swimming is great for kids has a few flumes and also a whirl pool, also a small children area with small flumes. Great day out!

Really disappointed with my visit to the Time Capsule. The staff at the front desk looked miserable and were not the most friendly. There was only four family changing rooms, one of which was out of order. Waited 20 minutes on one with a crying baby, asked a member of staff if they could help me, they said they couldn't....

It's a unanimous consensus amongst local people that the staff here are far from friendly. Maybe being so near the ice rink makes them frosty. Training pool is so busy due to swimming lessons from John Smith pool reallocated at the moment. We are regulars at John smith and are grateful that our swimming lessons can be accommodated but it...

We arrived early around 12 and hoped we could grab some lunch before we set into the pool as the main water area didn't open until 1pm. Both cafes were shut until 1pm??? Found this very strange, so trying to entertain a 2 year old for an hour was great, desperate to go swimming! Water park area didn't open until... More
