Brilliant, but not Perfect!
Great Array of things to do.
Traditional Arcades, Pool Tables, and Bowling, all near an inside bar, so the adults can watch the kids whilst having a nice bevvy.
Aqua Splash Waterpark is great, if it were a bit bigger it would be awesome, as during holidays it can get a little bit packed. Does need to be cleaned a bit more often but you can ignore that!
Two clubs sorta thing for a nice rave, do younger nights, and over 18+ nites so all good.
Jumpin Jaks for Ice skaters, not my cup of tea, but seems good from all my girl mates who go.
And of course you have the cinema.
When my family and I visited the Leisure World, we only really experienced the water park which I was seriously impressed with in general. Some great slides to mess about on, a nice safe area for younger kids and the "rapids" which flow around in a circuit seem to keep people amused for ages.
We visited on the Saturday of a bank holiday weekend early in the afternoon and I expected the whole place to be totally packed solid. I was surprised to see that it wasn't too bad at all and, once having gone into the pool area, it was still relatively quiet for an hour or so. There were queues for the bigger slides (up to 20 minutes or so) but some of the smaller ones were minimal. By the time we left a couple of hours later it had become a lot more crowded and slightly less suitable for much younger kids. However, this is not a criticism but rather an observation and something worth knowing - it's worth taking this into account and adjusting when (if?!) you visit accordingly. I found it all to be clean and safe with a sufficient number of staff at all times. It cost close on £20 for 2 x adults and a 5 year old which could be considered a bit pricey for a swimming pool. However, bearing in mind all the facilities, it's not comparable to a swimming pool and therefore reasonable in my opinion.
Other than the water park itself, you can see from the website that there is also a cinema, skating rink, bar, various amusements, a nightclub and a bowling alley as well as a few places to eat. The perfect place to spend a few hours whatever the weather. After messing about in the water park we tried the Pizza Hut. Nothing special but as expected apart from the pizzas could have done with being a bit hotter. No big deal to be honest. The service was friendly but I'd imagine that it could suffer a bit if it was a lot busier.
All in all Leisure World in recommended :o)
Leisure World is the perfect place for wet school holidays. The complex houses ice skating, bowling and a water park. It’s possible to buy a day ticket and do all three activities. The bowling is much the same as anywhere else. The ice rink is quite small which is great for beginners (not too far from one side to the other). The place is very noisy .There is loud disco music with people screaming and shouting to be heard above the noise. The ice is very ‘wet’ with big puddles of water so falling means getting soaked. However, it’s cheap and cheerful. (Take a change of clothes and gloves)
The water park is great fun. Again, there is very loud music so it is impossible to talk. There are a number of really good flumes. As you can imagine there are long queues for each ride. There is a shallow lagoon area for toddlers and a café/ spectators area. The water park needs a really good clean. There is fungus growing in places, discarded plasters on the floor and grime in the cracks. If you can ignore this you can have a good day out.
