Good facility. Everything in one place. Safe facility with good instructors. (March 2020 - Secondary School)




An excellent experience but the snow slides could have been better staffed and managed by the venue. It was very busy and people were falling over each other to get to the top of the slides. (March 2020 - Primary School)

Poorly organised day. Venue was inappropriate for large school bookings. Toilets were adult sized and situated in the bar/ restaurant area. No rubbish bags provided in lunch room. Snow room too busy and snow poor quality. Overall experience time for the children was 1.5 hours. Poor value for money! (December 2018 - Primary School)

(November 2018 - Primary School)




We were very pleased with our visit to the Snow Dome. The Winter Wonderland - snow play, show and animals - were very well organised and kept the children entertained. This year was improved by having a member of staff meet us as we arrived and check in with us through out the day. Our only issue was that there were no chairs and tables for us to eat our lunch at - which was noted by the parents who accompanied us. (November 2018 - Primary School)




Life guards and instructors very good. They made the instructions very clear to the children. A private room to leave our things and have lunch. (November 2018 - Primary School)




Staff were extremely helpful - the visit was enjoyable, as well as giving us a room to safely store our things whilst on an activity. (November 2018 - Primary School)




awesome trip out (September 2018 - Primary School)

The venue was also open to the public during our visit, we found that it would of been more beneficial to our children if they had closed it off to the public during our visit as it was quite congested at times. (December 2017 - Primary School)

The comments from adults were that the children had a fantastic time, experiencing the cold and playing in the snow. Adults have suggested that future visits to include ks1 so we could have the space to themselves. (December 2017 - Primary School)
