Well.... this was my very first water park and I have wanted to go to one since I was about 6. Now have two of my own, (nearly) 3 and 5. Luckily my 5 year old is very game and up for all the slides she was tall enough for. She was frustrated that she wasn't able to go on some of them, as she is small for her age, but I guess the line has to be drawn somewhere...
The area for children under 1.2 meters is really nice but there's a couple of big 'buts' - why on earth aren't adults allowed to accompany small children onto the slides? Not many little ones would go on these on their own. For those that will go alone, they will have to walk up to the top of the slides on their own if you wanted to catch them at the bottom - I felt v uncomfortable leaving my not quite 3 year old to do this as the view to the top was obscured in many cases by vegetation. It seemed to me like an accident waiting to happen. Child could easily wander off and end up alone near water.... not good.
We were really peeved by the extra charges for lockers (3 eur plus 5 deposit, cash only), extra charge for sun loungers (2.5 per lounger) and the price of the truly execrable food. A bottle of coke was 2.50. All this on top of an entry fee of e27 per adult, and e17 for each child.
It really has a feel of a place where they are trying so hard to make £££. It's a bit brazen. I presume this is why the wave pool is only on for 5 minutes every half hour - as when the waves were on, there were a LOT of staff in attendance. Most of the staff were nice, though.
All in all, it could be so much better, but perhaps the running costs of such an operation are high, hence the squeeze-the-customer ethos.
The pools needed a really good clean - it must be hard to keep them sparkling with all the overhanging pines and other vegetation, but the lazy river was particularly murky.
