On 31 May 08 we took our chldren, aged 4 and 9 to the Sandcastle for the first time. We read a couple of reviews first and it sounded aweful. Always one to make my own mind up we went anyway. First off there is plenty of parking. We spent 5 hours there and enjoyed ourselves very much. The kids loved the wave pool and the rapids are great fun. The water slides are good fun and there are several for all ages and swimming ability. The wave pool smelt funny which i suppose is the chemicals used to keep it clean, though after a while you forget about the smell. The food was reasonble and so was the price. The staff were very friendly and informative. We found the toilets to be clean and well maintained. FYI as well as the main lockers there are some small lockers by the shop to put your wallet/purse in so you dont have to keep trudging back to the changing area when you want something to eat and drink. The only thing to be aware of is that up towards the cafe area and around in various locations the floor is tiled and is extremley slippery when wet. Both my wife and daughter fell and so did a couple of others we saw. Dry your feet first or wear some footwear.
All in all a very good day out, we will denfinatly be going again.
