Visited 21/11/17 mid afternoon and in less than an hour had seen everything! The main pool talk and the nursery were the best bits. Staff were friendly and helpful but couldn’t help but feel it wasn’t good value for money.

The full place is tired and dirty looking, no staff on hand to answer childrens questions. Pirate park is good and gift shop is excellent. Cafe is dirty and poor food standards.
