Went on a camping trip to a site just next to the National Water Sports Centre. I am not usually on for trying things like what is on offer but found my self trying out wakeboarding here. I turned out to be rubbish at it but it was an experience and was fun. It wasn't badly priced either, I think it was £20 each for a two hour session in which at the beginning you recieve a brief lesson. Overall great day out,

Came here in March for a hen do and was overall really impressed. No messing around or waiting to get started, kitted up in wet suits and helmets. Quick saftey briefing and then we were away, the instructors were very good and made sure we had the best experience possible and making sure we were comfortable with the speed and the difficulty of the course. We had a lot of fun and felt very safe, I was really scared to fall in, inevitably I did but you are watched at all times and the teams working on keeping you safe are extremely quick and got you to safety with no issues. Really great experience. My only small complaint was the changing rooms or should I say room. It would have been a lot better and nicer if they could invest in some private cubicals and have some more space.

Great for newbies or experienced wakeboarder's, wakeskater's or waterskiiers! Probably one of the most competitively priced waterskiing centers in the UK at just £20 for 2 hours (including equipment hire). They look after new users and provide instruction and guidance on how to initially use a kneeboard. If you can get around the course 3 times you're then allowed to go on a wakeboard. Great fun, very addictive and a really nice atmosphere.

Excellent center for water sports. Stands for the spectators. Swans and ducks are walking among people

Went white water rafting. Just a great experience. The guides are terrific. I felt completely safe even though I had a bad experience elsewhere. The rapids are immense and you get right up in them and under them. Because the course is man made it is set up to maximize safety as well as maximize fun! Plenty of safety training and equipment. For £35 would definitely go again. Get 2 hours on the water. Slight downer is you have to carry boat back to the start but oh well. Belongings are locked away and plenty of parking with plenty of signage from way outside Nottingham. Loved it. Recommend.
