We visit the slide for a preview and Baby 2.0 gives is a HOT! As soon as we get to the bottom he immediately wants to have another go.

It goes pretty fast – and in fact the heavier you are the faster you’ll go and the harder you’ll hit the crash mats at the end.

Kids under 4 years need to go with an adult in one of the bigger slides, kids over 4 years old can ride their own smaller inflatable tube. You can even race your friends as there are twin lanes.
