School Trip Reviews
The best location for School Trips! Rated 5.0/5
based on 1543 Trip advisor reviews.
Outstanding experience - highlight of Y6 residential week. Two lakes with enormous inflatables. Of all the incredible experiences, the class enjoyed during the week, this was their highlight! So many things to climb up, throw yourself off, hang from, slide down. Can not recommend highly enough.
Brilliant! What an amazing afternoon. Our school group of teenagers had a brilliant time at the waterpark. The staff were professional, friendly and helpful and the lifeguards literally threw themselves into ensuring every single member of our party was looked after and had a good time, whatever their confidence level or ability. There's no better way to spend a morning (or afternoon)! Thanks to Ryan and everyone at the park for making it such an enjoyable trip. Every single teenager was asleep on the bus home - result!
Fantastic Educational Trip/ College Trip - End of Term Celebration for 20 (16-19 yrs) Outstanding day at the Dorset Waterpark. Fantastic value for money - professional, enthusiastic and motivational instructors. All instructors/lifeguards prioritised safety, whilst at the same time promoting a fun experience for each member of our party. Clear signposted venue from main route, clean facilities, provision of lockers (mobile phones etc), quality equipment (wetsuits/buoyancy aids) and a beautiful, well-managed setting with picnic area. FUN - SAFE - ADVENTUROUS - EXHILERATING - ALREADY PLANNING THE NEXT TRIP!
