They offer nice activities and it's fun for a day with friends or family with teenagers and above. However, I had a feeling that it was not too safe. The staff didn't seem very helpful or aware of the dangers the place can offer. For example when my boyfriend fell from the water bike, the guide didn't tell him if... More

Did all the slides and had a great day. I may be getting old but felt young again. A great way to spend the day.

The kids went jet skiing but the service wasn't very good. They had a slot booked at 2pm but when they went they kept getting turned away due to lunch breaks so didn't get on til after 2.30pm. They then we're allowed 5 laps which took about 15 mins for a hefty R649

We decided to visit Waterworld which was convienently located only steps away from our room. We went down to book the Parasailing which was quick and easy and ready to go within minutes. The staff were halarious, yet very professional and their safety briefings were clear and concise. The activity was shorter than I expected only being two trips around... More

This has been an amazing trip. Numerous water sports available catering for all age groups. Parasailing had always been my teenage children's favorite & their friends love it equally. Jet skis & snake ride was awesome too

Lovely watersports, been here many times did almost all the sports I could. I just found that in the last few years the prices are very expensive for local travellers, I feel if they bring the prices down a bit, they would get a lot more business

Took my kids last weekend and they had a great time on the Tubes. The speedboat driver was very proficient ensuring that however hard they held on, they were taking a dip....It was a bit cold in July and personally I didn't fancy getting in the lake - but another time maybe.
