Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Drove 3 hours for our booking then. after 15 minutes in the water they told us we needed to get out of the water. They gave us tickets for the season. I messaged them to see if I could get them changed to next season as I can't do another 6 hour round trip this month and their messages back were quite rudely stating "no use them this season" lack of customer service skills. They were really rude in replying to my messages. If you want to get your large amount of money they charge for tickets and socks back if there is bad weather I wouldn’t recommend buying tickets as you will get nothing but rudeness.

Visited her with my little children and was really disappointed in the lack of supervision they have for the blow up castle on the beach.
There was lots of mothers just sitting in the shore sunbathing letting their 6-7 year olds run around knocking little babies over and climbing on top of people - I don’t know how many times I have to grab someone else’s child and stop them from drowning when they got knocked over front first then trampled by the rest of the group.
In between sessions you also get all the teenagers come over and have a turn at jumping on top of babies and eating their lunch while in the castle.
Doesn’t seem to have a maximum limit of people aloud on at a time so is chaotic. The castle is design so all the equipment is in the middle so you can’t see to the other side if you have multiple children it is better to have someone else helping unless you don’t care about your child’s safety.
Unsure how this is allowed to operate without life guards.
The beach life guards were very quick to make sure any child in the lake without a life jacket either put one on or for our (even if they only had toes in and companied by and adult) but not bothered to supervise children in a depth of water they are more likely to drown in

Hi there, I would first like to say I apologise for the older kids and teenagers being in the castle. They were breaking the rules the castle is strictly 6 and under so no kids/ teens over 6 should have ever stepped foot in there. What I am confused about is if you saw this why you didn’t tell one of the staff members straight away instead of putting this review up 3 months after the event. You mention the lifeguards approached you straight away to ensure your young kids had a life jacket on before going into the lake. Why did you not tell them that this was happening then? They would have fixed the situation and kicked any older kids out straight away. As our website states all children on the splash park need an adult to accompany them and monitor them at all times. It is only ankle depth water that’s why the lifeguards are focused on the lake instead as the lake drops to 4 metres of water very quickly.

Such an awesome day for friends and family! We had a blast, so many inflatables to try and safety first with the socks (made it so much easier to stay in the inflatables). Highly recommend 😊
