Coral reef is a great pool for young children. It is a bit expensive but well worth it for a good day out. Across the road you have the look out, which has a forest you can walk around for free which adds to a great day :)

Amazingly good fun

We have been taking my older son, who is now a teenager to Coral Reef for years and to this day he still loves it. I have recently had another child, so I thought I'd try the experience with my infant. At 6 months old, everything is fascinating to him, but here - He was giggling the entire time. There was so much for him to see. From the pirate ship, the giant columns with water shooting over the top, the little waterfalls and the outside pool area too. Despite being brave and going during half term, the queues were not as bad as first thought, but it was still very busy. The changing rooms, I found to be adequate for my older son and I loved the facilities in the family changing areas. I could've done with the lockers being a slightly bit bigger, due to me having two rucksacks, but with a kick and a push I managed to get it all in. After all of the swimming excitement, we had lunch in the cafe upstairs. I had a jacket potato with chilli and cheese and my elder son, had the burger and chips. both of us thought it was maybe a little pricey once you had bought a drink as well (he was a little shocked when it didn't include a pudding), but it was lovely and just what the doctor ordered after a lovely swim.

Great pool

We love it here and now the kids are older they go off and play and usually spend ages on the slides followed by even longer being pulled round the lazy rivers. They like to start off in the larger river and then try and get across the strong current to the smaller, faster one. They always get home exhausted! The kids meals are great at the café by the pool and they can eat in their swimming things. They usually go for chicken nuggets and chips. Parking is great but the pool can get very busy during the holidays and weekends. Time is limited to two hours depending on how busy they are.

This is an amazing leisure pool for kids of all ages. For the younger ones there are small shallow pools with slides and water play. Armbands are freely available to use too. For the older ones you have lazy rivers, jets, fountains, a giant Jacuzzi and three tunnel slides. The slides range from slow (The Python) to medium (The Anaconda) to fast (Boa Constrictor). We went during the school holidays but didn’t have to queue for long at all. There is a small pool outside that can be accessed from the main pool. Refreshments are available from a poolside café and also the main café upstairs, though we usually take a picnic and eat on the benches outside. Changing facilities were spacious but fairly basic.

Best At Off-Peak Times

Coral Reef Waterworld has some great facilities. We love their shallow toddlers play area where my little girl squeals with excitement every time water tips on my head or squirts in my eye. I find that it can get VERY busy during holidays and at weekends. On a Sunday morning they limit your time in the pool - if you go at about 10am the inital queue has died down but the morning rush hasn't yet started. The family changing rooms are spacious and well equipped. The outdoor pool area is rarely open but when it is, it is a peaceful, sunny haven for the little ones. Inside, be warned that when the alarm sounds, it means that huuuuuuge jets of water are about to start squirting!

Fun at Coral Reef!

This was great family fun! I've been several times with my children but during the holidays went along with only my youngest. We arrived fairly early which was great as it wasn't so busy. Its quite hectic when it is at full capacity! The 'rapid' areas are incredible fun but hold on tight to the young ones as the current is strong. The outdoor lane was close which in this weather I can understand. The changing/shower areas are pretty standard although the kids have such fun here they don't care about this side of things. We thought it was clean enough for a public pool. The slides are fun and you can take your pick of the three. My daughter sits on my lap provided she has arm bands. The queues can get busy so keep an eye on them until they go down! Fun day out and for the grown ups too!!

Great fun for children of all ages

Coral Reef is a lagoon style swimming pool with a pirate ship, water chutes, rapids, bubble pools and water jets. There’s also a shallow area for little ones with a slide and mini pools for babies to sit in. Coral Reef has an outdoor pool which is open in warmer weather. There’s lots to do in the pool and children never seem to tire of playing and swimming. Armbands are provided for those not confident enough with their swimming. The changing area has a number of family rooms and plenty of lockers. It’s usually quite clean. There’s café overlooking the pool which also has a section you can sit in while wearing your swimwear. The food is fairly basic canteen food but the staff are friendly and happy to warm up baby food and bottles. Coral Reef is for children of all ages, it can get very busy at weekends and school holidays and is quieter and cheaper in the school term weeks.
