Attraction Information

The Dolphin Centre is a fantastic place for you and your little water babies to have lots of splashtastic fun with an excellent pool complex and an Under the Sea themed Soft Play area!

The pools offer a great mix of watery activities, from a casual swim to competitive diving and swimming, plus the chance to have lots of fun on their inflatables and water slides. There is a 25m (82 feet) competition standard pool with 8 lanes, plus a Diving Pool with 3 diving boards (1, 3 and 5m) for those wanting to train and compete, or those who would like an enjoyable way to keep active.

Younger kids will love the interactive Toddler pool and everyone will enjoy the inflatables and water slides! Children must be able to swim unaided to use the inflatables, plus there will need to be 1 adult for every 2 children under 8 years old.

Under the Sea is a nautical adventure play area that includes Pirate Island, where you can meet Pirate Pete and maybe even find his treasure! There are a number of other fun characters, plus some great interactive features in this fantastic soft play area.

Plenty to keep kids up to the age of 10 amused, with a spectator area for the adults and a buggy park.
