The waterpark offers 4 water slides (minimum height 1.20m) where you can slide down with an inflatable tube, Mill Pond kids area, indoor and outdoor hot tubes, Big River – where you can float on an inflatable tube around the waterpark, Double Barrel Flowrider – try to surf in a special pool with strong waves and play water basketball in a designated pool or climb on a rock about the water.
We have spent a good few hours in the waterpark when the outdoor temperature was -24 Celsius and it was a good way to escape the cold. The place is offering a snack bar and nearby the hotel there are other restaurant options. Food and drinks are not allowed to be brought inside the waterpark.
Keep in mind that the lockers (option for small or bigger locker) are at extra charge. There is an option to hang coats and winter clothing at the entrance. There is only one family changing room (otherwise change at the dressing area for men or women). There are showers and restrooms but only one hair dryer in the ladies dressing room, and one at the men’s’.
Also, keep in mind that towels are included with the ticket but these are very small. Some people bring their own towels. The parking is outside and there are about 20 stairs to climb up for the main waterpark entrance (probably there is an alternative way to access through the hotel), worth remembering when temperatures are low – so gear up well.
