Aquacise fitness classes
The lazy river opens daily at 10:30am and the slides open daily at 11am.
All slides close 30 minutes prior to Resort closing time on any given day.
Due to wear and deterioration of the welds in the stainless steel tube and in interest of public safety, the Blachole slide has been closed until further notice.
We are sad to have to close this slide, but the safety of our customers made this an easy decision.
