For you and your children to have a great time at the pool, you need to follow these pool rules:

  • Actively supervise children who under 8 years old at all times (but you don't need to be in the water with them).
  • Keep children under 5 years old within arms-length of an adult at all times.
  • No food or drink should be eaten outside of the poolside party area.
  • Anyone who has had diarrhoea within 14 days of the party should not swim for health reasons.
  • Children are not allowed in the saunas or steam rooms.
