AVOID!!! It’s interesting to read the varied comments of this place. I generally agree with all the negative comments. In brief – yes, it is terribly run-down and the owner fed us a pack of lies about the place. But the main thing that gets me is the ads that make it look and sound so appealing. This is such false advertising and so disappointing to make the effort to get there to be greeted by almost the complete opposite of the ads. I read so many reviews of “great childhood memories” and “take it for what it is”, which would be fine if the ads were honest. No working bumper boats, green pool water in bumper boat pool (although owner said we could use them if we paid!!! – Urghhhh, no way!), horibble toilets, no new games room, unsafe stairs, crappy playground……. It gets 1/10 rating because at least the 2 functioning thermal pools felt warm.
