There is plenty here for kids to do, the wave pool is awesome, they have a small river ride where people can float and be gently pushed along, and 3 slides. They seem to recently be undergoing some repairs/upgrading. The toddler pool isnt great though, as its basically a part of the deep pool and no real barrier or seperation from it, so its easy for the toddlers or busy 3/4 year olds to end up in the deep water in the blink of an eye which makes me feel very uneasy. Its also not very stimulating or big enough for young kids. So be prepared to go into the deep water with your toddlers! But for older kids, its brilliant!! They also do fun inflatables in the pool near the swimming lanes, the inflatables are HUGE so several kids can play with it at the same time, and is a big favourite for my 9 year old. Cafe there is good. They do fun kids nights called aquabeats, always a big hit with kids.
This is a mixed review.... I loved taking my two pre schoolers here..... then my eldest turned 5 and I took her there, just the two of us... $9.20..... a big hike from the previous $3 odd dollars.... it appears the UHCC thinks a 5yo can be unaccompanied in the water and so hence the parent/caregiver is charged a whopping $6 to jump in with them (or sit on the side lines)..... Sorely disappointed with this... and what was once a regular outing is now too expensive for us to do..... to add, just recently been to two Council pools in Auckland.... the charge $1 for me and a child.... the caregiver is free and the child is $1 ...... hmmm
This place is SOOO much fun!! Its family friendly, a great hangout place for kids and perfect for teenagers on friday nights. Its made to bring happiness to everyone with special times for different groups of people such as Teen wave on friday nights, Womens only night on sundays and there special events like birthdays, wave breakers swimschool, holiday programes or booking a birthday party. If you deecide to go to H20 then
