Reading another review talking about how brilliant Sassi is, I just wanted to add my 2 cents, as I spend a LOT of time at the Rapids now. I attend classes most nights, all taken by Sassi, and I've never found an instructor like her....More

I almost didn't want to write this review. The reason being that if I let the secret out, I might not get space on the classes I love. But that's too selfish, so here I am. I started classes at the Rapids in the first...More

The 2 year old really enjoyed the kids pools. It wasn’t too busy so there weren’t any queues for anything. The hygiene is pretty shocking. There was food on the floor of the changing rooms. There were hundreds of little transparent bugs all over the...More

The children absolutely love this swimming pool. The water is always warm as well as the air temperature. We brought fast track tickets and skipped past the 50 minute queue so buy these online pre arriving. The pool itself is in need of a lot...More

Great fun day out. Pirate ship for my toddler to play in and a flume for my 5 year old. The pool does become very busy but that didn't spoil our day. Some of the tiles in and around the pool are cracked and it...More
