Suitable for all ages (slide height restriction 1.2m)
This is a big swimming pool complex with slides and pools of varying temperatures that kids LOVE!
It’s not a cheap day out but the kids will have a great time and talk about it for months to come! Some TOP TIPS to make it as cheap as possible are: if you’re a NZ resident, join the PoolPlus programme (free to join) and family entry is $45 + slides. Also, if you know you’re going, check out their Facebook page for their SuperSales which are advertised approximately twice a year. You can also look here on Bookme, in case there are any deals available. You can also take your own food and drinks with you rather than buying at the cafe. Make sure you take everything you’ll need for your visit with you, as leaving the complex and coming back has an extra charge.
Also, there is currently no shade so another TOP TIP: go first thing in the morning (when it’s also usually quieter) or later on in the afternoon if it’s a hot day. The management have said that they are addressing the shade issue (May 2016).
