Attraction details
Owner description: The Oasis Fun Pools in Newquay is the ideal attraction for the whole family whatever the weather! With a choice of two fabulous swimming pools for all the family, a river rapid ride to take your breath away, water cannon and geyser for a real soaking, a giant tap, fountains and waterfalls too! Three fabulous water flumes… The fast and furious high speed aqua whiz flume, the exciting wet & wild 265ft super flume, and the fun for all gentle fun slide! Water splashing, spray-tastic, squirty wet and watery fun for everyone! For safety reasons use of the flumes is restricted to competent swimmers and those over 1 metre in height. Use of the River Rapid Ride is restricted to competent swimmers and those over 1.2 metres in height. Non-swimmers must be accompanied in the water at a ratio of 1 adult swimmer to 2 non-swimmers. All children under 9 years, regardless of swimming ability, must be accompanied by an adult in the water at a ratio of 1 adult to 2 children. We reserve the right to ask children to do a swim test if unaccompanied by an adult.

Very clean, despite being extremely busy. The outdoor pool area was lovely, exceptionally clean and well laid out with attentive lifeguards. It is busy and you do expect a bit of a queue for slides but this is well managed. To the people who say a time limit of 90 minutes is ridiculous - we stayed here for a week and 4 days of this the pool was so busy it was shut to the public. So it is very understandable they have to have sessions. Kids absolutely loved it!

Went here today, word of advice contact them before you go to avoid any disappointment in being turned away! It's expensive, £8 per adult for 90 mins or £12 pp for 90 mins indoor but the day outdoor, the outdoor pool is heated very well. Indoor there's three slides, one with rubber rings which you are guaranteed to get stuck on haha and a green one and a red one, the red one is the best for a thrill!! Other than that it's a pool, definitely could do with some activities like aqua fit and fun or water polo or something.

It's okay for when it rains, especially if you have kids

Spent a fantastic morning here with my boys aged 11 and 7. Wasn't busy so no long queues for the slides. Pool was lovely and warm. Would have liked to use the outside pool but was told this was for residents only. This is possibly incorrect as have since seen an advert for an all day ticket. If this is the case we will be going back.
You need £1 coin for a locker and the large lockers get taken quickly so just take essentials.

Dear Visitor,

Thank you for your nice review. We are delighted to hear that you had a good time. You can pay extra to use the indoor and outdoor - please see here: http://www.oasis-hendra.co.uk/opening-times.htm - sorry you were told differently. It may have been that the outdoor pool was up to capacity that day, so that was why it was closed to non-residents. We hope to see you again soon.

We researched before our holiday for a good pool with shoots to take our children too whilst in Cornwall. Oasis has great reviews and the children were so excited to be going as it was their choice trip of the entire holiday. How disappointed we were to get all the way there to find them refusing non residents into the pool. We felt so frustrated as we checked the website before travelling and rang the hotline to make sure we could get in and there were no messages on either to say the public would not be permitted . We expected a Que. or wait but to be refused admittance was a very poor show as you can imagine with disappointed children. On the up side it looked a super indoor and outdoor pool just pity we couldnt enjoy it.

Dear Visitor,

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you and the children were disappointed. In peak-season Oasis does get very busy and residents staying at Hendra Holiday Park do come first. The number is our booking hotline and you can check with a booking person if we are accepting non-residents. On the front page of the website it does say this: Please note that both the outdoor and indoor pools have a capacity limit for the health and safety of pool users, at busy times we are obliged to restrict entry. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and recommend that during holiday periods you call to check waiting times or restrictions before setting off to visit.
We are sorry that this was not seen. We hope you will be able to return.

I have stayed on the holiday park many times but have never been in the pools before until now.
The pools are a great day out and I visited with my girlfriend as we fancied a quick swim. We ended up being there for the whole day as we were having so much fun with the weather being so good we spent our time outside in the pool venturing in for a go on the slides every now and again.
If you have kids this place is a must see and we will defiantly be returning next time we are down on holiday
