Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Although the bigger slides were not available and this was flagged well in advance, we had a very enjoyable day here. Very well organized with very helpful and friendly staff. Wetsuits were great too. Was a bit worried about having to swim out but needn't have worried the life jackets were a big help. Both the kids and adults had a fun time. We did have one in our group who is Type 1 diabetic and upon speaking with a member of staff the parent was immediately re-assured. We'll be back ! Thanks.

Great location ( beside Hodson Bay hotel, if you plan rightly you can enjoy your lunch at the hotel and you will be very hungry after such an activity).
Helpful staff.
At our visit we did not see advertised castles on the water (which was admired by my son 7 y.o. and that was a reason to book and try it), but in total great fun for the whole family.
Our favorite is the long obstacle course.
I would recommend to have a photographer on site or some cameras installed to take a photos and at the end of session all photos could be displayed on some screen and if the customer wants they can buy or can be deleted if not interest to buy was expressed.
I would recommend this place for sure.

Well organised and so much fun, not just for kids - the adults enjoyed it too! Platforms weren't too crowded, the wetsuits and the life jackets really helped and you don't need to be a strong swimmer. The obstacles needed a bit of fitness and strength, as you have to pull yourself up onto some of them. But everyone truly enjoyed themselves, and we'll be back.

Great fun for the lads, really enjoyed it. Lovely helpful staff and very friendly also.
Only downside was the cost for 1 hour and that you are putting kids aged 14+ into the adults category and having them pay those kind of prices is ridiculous. They didn't even get full hour use considering they where called back 10 minutes earlier. There was 60 people on the count in my sons group. Overall the lads enjoyed it and want to go back again.

nice staff, and the river shannon/l. ree is special and a great river to swim in.
but some of the slides were old and needed pumping up while we were there... also a number of the slides had grips tore off, one in particular had lost a number of its grips so one could not use.
an upgrade is needed considering the cost for 1 hour. also some of the larger slides were taken away that were there last year, which was disappointing. overall we enjoyed it, but could be better especially for the charge
