These hot springs have been the subject of ongoing criticism and council action. I can't find anything to suggest that the springs have improved, so I suggest that you look for a better managed and maintained hot springs park.

Miranda, Opal Springs and de Brett's come to mind. Or the better known Polynesian Spa in Rotorua.

2. Re: Waingaro hot springs

Went there today with 4 kids. They had a great time.

Plus points, nice clean warm water. Two fun slides with no queues. Very few people. Facilities to suit all ages with paddle pool, extra warm relaxing pool. Friendly staff. Plenty of seating and changing areas.

Negative points, Health and safety have not got their teeth into this place yet, it will probably have to close when they do. Very little in the shop/reception. The slides are not open continually, they close several times a day for at least a hour each time. The whole place could do with a freshen up.

We had a great day out and will go again, the kids just love it.
