Exploration of Eccentricity.

Challenges the Status Quo.

Ending another gruelling week of work, my plans for a Friday night was to stay at home and catch up on Facebook, watch TV and read neglected emails. Suddenly, a friend invited me to join her at WaterMarc.
WaterMarc is a newly establishment leisure centre featuring a colossal waterslide, a diverse range of pools to suit all members and guests and personal training in a brand new fitness centre.
Our aim for the night was to purely relax and rejuvenate. I went straight for the spa and sauna, whereas my friend took the advantage of few laps on the pool. Although the 50m/25m pool was very tempting, it was not my night to do strenuous laps on the pool. The idea of indulging in the warm water pool, spa or sauna and steam facilities made my night with delight. The stress of work seemingly disappeared.
WaterMarc multi-activity complex is a great 'chill out' place as it has the most serene and beautiful aquatic surroundings. Access to ramps, stairs and slopes from a depth of 0.9m through 1.4m attracts all generations in particular, looking for a bit of 'me' time.
While I soothed the tensions of daily grind of work, the complex can also be hired for events and/or functions (i.e. meeting/conference rooms, birthday parties etc). The cafe on the other hand has options of meals, desserts, snacks, treats and beverages to choose from. The wonderful thing about the cafe is they make their sandwiches, wraps, baguettes and salads on the premises to provide maximum freshness and quality.
Furthermore, the multifaceted centre has a fully equipped childcare facility designed to assist parents and guardians to pursue their recreational and fitness interests whilst their children are cared for in a safe, supportive friendly environment with experienced and professional staff.
big, splashy and colourful, Watermarc is a lotta fun. Be aware...the line for the waterslide is so long that the kids will be lucky to get one slide in a 20-min period. And the big kids push into the line (particularly noteworthy for those with young kids). The food is expensive - take snacks and drinks. The kids area with the bucket tipping over is really cool.
I took my little ones during the school holidays and it was out of control busy. I thought it was over capacity. While there is fun to be had, the noise of crowds and wait times were mad (20 mins for entry and 40 mins for a slide). If relaxation is your aim, I would recommend avoiding peak times for kids. In fact, I recommend anyone to avoid those peak times.
