Came here in the easter holidays so expected it to be busy however was disappointed at just how busy and chaotic the changing area was. Why do you not stagger people entering the pool and give them an allocated time slot? Surely this would be safer and provide a better experience for the customer. Instead people are pushing and shoving, trying to get to locker (which are all full) while managing young kids. Not enjoyable. The changing area was filthy, nappies, rubbish etc on the filthy floor. One poor attendent left to clean while trying to dodge the hoards of peolpe. Chaos.
The actual pool and slides are great but the changing facilities and amount of people let it down.

Although it was very busy this was a great day out for the family. The changing area in the pool is not the best during busy times - especially with a toddler but that was the only downside.

Definitely worth a visit.

Drove from West Cavan to Drogheda on Saturday 24th of February for a Princess makeover for my daughter's birthday. I've sent Funtasia an email a week earlier and asked if I have to book it but got a reply that it is not necessary to book in advance. Just come along.
On arrival I was told that unfortunately no slot is available for my daughter as there were several birthday parties.
I guess everybody can imagine how disappointed my daughter was. She was in tears nearly all the way home.
I honestly can't recommend to travel long distance for the Princess makeover as you can't be sure you will get a slot.
Could all be avoided if Funtasia would take bookings...
Emailed Funtasia and reported this issue but unfortunately got an unsatisfying reply.

We went yesterday with my son and 4 friends all 9 years old. We got the big splash ticket which gave us unlimited time in the pool area, bowling and the sky walk. The pool slides are just brilliant great for kids that age and older. Once finished in the pool area we had lunch in the centre fast food but also a deli. The lads enjoyed everything. 2 of the lads were not quite 135 cm and could not do the sky walk but staff very quickly sorted us with crazy golf which they really enjoyed. We arrived at 10.30 am and left at 3.40 . Definitely arriving early is the key no one in the pool so no que for the big pool slides.
If I had organised the tickets even 24 hours before the tickets would only be 18 euro. But that said it is still great value to get a package deal. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Great place and worth a visit but give yourself several hours

It's not cheap. But a Great family day out! Ate in the restaurant after swimming decent food! Once you leave the swimming area you're not allowed back in, which is a shame! They should really review the policies, maybe have a one day wristband would make more sense! For people to swim in the morning, go bowling with their family then back in for a swim in the evening. Or even for the local people who live close by could Benefit with an extended 1...2.. or weekend wristband.
