Fantastic day out with the kids and even just adults

An amazing water park with places to relax and a phenomenal aquarium. Also very interesting activities. You can zip line, go diving or go tubing.

Various slides and rides ranging from a slow tube ride in the duzi river, around uShaka (make sure to bring your waterproof camera), to tube racing and the highest slide in Africa. There is something for everyone and you guaranteed to get soaked. Best time to go is at 9am when it opens, during the school day - this way... More

All I can say is if you love water and adrenaline, this is the place to go to have fun, with a variety of fast water slides, nice place to have fun with all the family, friends or just in couple :)

This is a great days entertainment but on a sunny day when not overcrowded. So basically avoid for the last weeks in December and the first week of January. If you like crowds and queues then go any time, I avoid then as I do not want to mourn in queues when the others are having great fun.

What a beautiful concept that is very badly managed. Firstly, this is not my first visit to this potentially great facility. We arrived there on the 27th December last year on a very hot and sunny day. They do not monitor and control the amount of people that are allowed to be at the resort at one time and this... More

Place hasn't changed in years, refer to my other review. Kids area needs to be upgraded and more seating or shaded areas are needed. Great to find good halaal food in the water park at the London Pie kiosk.

I'm so glad we got the chance to do this. An absolute blast ... all the rides were great, parking was a cinch, the queues (which only appeared later in the day) moved quickly, the staff were helpful. We rented a locker for our dry and valuable things. There were rides to suit everyone. Yes, I hope we could go... More

Great day of tubing - would recommend paying the extra money for a VIP booth and setting up camp if there with a group. Alternatively you can rent a locker and pay for a special tube to avoid the queues which can mean waiting 10 minutes for a ride.
