Went here with 4YO and he loved it. Prices are great $12 for the 3 of us! (Unsure if this was a locals rate or not) and we found the facilities were good as was the pool temperature. Will definitely be going again.

Great facilities, very well staffed with life guards. The facilities were clean and well laid out. The water is a very nice temperature with different temps found around the pool. Has competitive swimming pools as well. A rope swing very popular with the kids.

Great fun for Primary school age kids. A real must-visit when staying in Taupo with family. Unfortunately the café manager treated us as unwanted intruders. Enjoy the hot pools but expect a cold reception at the café.
