Splashtastic Fun as NEW Leisure Pool Opens

by Matthew Worthington - 7th April 17

We’ve done it! The NEW Leisure Pool is officially open for you all to enjoy.

It has taken countless hours of planning and hard work but after three months this exciting new attraction is now open. A big thanks goes to our our Ribby Hall Village Maintenance Team, World Leisure and the entire team at The Health Club. Seeing the enthusiastic reaction from guests during the first week makes every minute of it worth the effort.


The development is the largest refurbishment project ever undertaken within the 23 year history of Ribby Hall Village. Construction Manager Stuart Simmons said: “Challenge Annika was a walk in the park in comparison to this project. Our Ribby Hall Village team and contractors pulled out all the stops to meet such a tight deadline. It’s a great achievement by everyone involved.”

Thrill seekers can take the plunge on our 48 metre interactive tunnel slide that stretches out of the building and features on-ride music, lights and a quick reaction game. You’ll also be able to have your picture taken to upload to social media to boast about your score!

A themed children’s splash zone, racer slides, two hot tubs and luxury sauna and steam rooms make this a real family attraction. There’s also a tiki themed viewing area so grab a drinks from Starbucks and relax beside the tropical lagoon. Or if you’re feeling like you need to practice some lengths, there’s a 3 lane swimming area for you to enjoy!


Here’s what some of our guests have said already:

“We were one of the lucky ones to go this morning. It was fabulous! Both kids had a fantastic time and cried when we had to leave! A great addition to the village and a worthwhile investment. We will certainly be making the most of it!” – Claire McCann

“Really lovely morning with our 2 this morning! Ellis and Katie loved the new pool and the slides! Great job ribby!”  – Lynsey Hodgkinson

“Well worth the wait, it’s fantastic.” – Alex Varty
