Do you love water? There’s plenty for you to look forward to when visiting us! You can do some wall climbing, take the plunge on the diving boards and try our water slide for a little whirl and spin. If you need a break, you can enjoy one of our comfortable sunbeds together with something tasty and refreshing from the café!


The 6 pools have water temperature between 28 – 34°c. Togheter in the same pool we got the climbing wall, and diving platform rising to a full height of 7.5 metres.. Will you manage to get to the top? When the bell rings it is time for the waves in the water pool, and afterwards you can take the plunge out into the stream channel and enjoy floating along with it. Looking for something even more exciting? Why not try the 106 metre long waterslide with a timer? Prepare for a speedy ride!
