We arrived early around 12 and hoped we could grab some lunch before we set into the pool as the main water area didn't open until 1pm. Both cafes were shut until 1pm??? Found this very strange, so trying to entertain a 2 year old for an hour was great, desperate to go swimming! Water park area didn't open until... More

From the moment we walked in we were greeted with rude staff,to interested in talking to each other than dealing with customers.The pool staff looked unhappy to be there avoiding eye contact when looking to ask a question. The staff at the restaurant were also rude.i would not advise eating here look for a McDonald's. We found numerous plasters(and other... More

What do you do with 3 x 10 year old boys on a Sunday morning? Well, as a birthday treat, the time capsule went down well with this crowd, and also 2 x 12 year old girls, my hubby & myself. Fortunately, 10am on a Sunday in the winter is obviously a fairly good and quiet time to go, as... More

Family visit to the Time Capsule yesterday morning after travelling over an hour from our home town. On arrival outside the facility, we noted the opening times, which stated that the Time Capsule's facilities open at 10am and went in. We were then surprised and extremely disappointed to discover that the water park area (the whole reason we drove to... More

Went for a swim in the training pool and the changing rooms stunk of urine. I had to spend a few minutes finding one that wasn't smelly or dirty. When I was walking down to the pool, the sides were covered in mud and hair. Would not recommend at all, unless you want to catch something.

The pool was fun for the kids and seemed to be safe and well staffed, a bit grubby and clearly dated. Kids didnt notice they only focused on fun. Canteen/Cafe was awful poor quality food and service and even more grumby . It was not overly expensive but good of been better.

Was worried after reading other reviews . But glad we took the chance and went . Visited with our 3 year old son and he had a great time . He was a little wary at first as the large bucket of water tipped on him at the splash area. But soon settled and enjoyed the wave pool and jumping... More
