At the end of November, the media came to Coral Reef Waterworld. They saw the progress made so far on the new flume tower, the roof, Sauna World and more.
Reporters and photographers from local newspapers and BBC attended the media tour. They were able to see how Coral Reef had changed since the last media briefing in July.
Coral Reef is closed for its transformation until 2017. Work is progressing swiftly on its exciting refurbishment.
As of 24 January 2017, sections of the fantastic new flumes are arriving on site ready to be assembled in the coming months. The new flume tower is also rising out from the ground with the first level nearly finished and the second level now emerging. The columns to support the flumes from the top of the tower down to the splash pool are close to completion.
Elsewhere, the old roof has now been completely removed with work on the new roof due to begin in February and the concrete columns in the main pool area, which supported the old roof, are being demolished.
The refurbishment work of interior areas including the changing village and Coconut Grove Café are also underway.
The refurbishment project will result in:
- five thrilling state-of-the art flume rides being installed within a new flume tower
- enhancement to Sauna World
- upgrading the Lazy River area
- a new changing village
- a fresh Coconut Grove Café
- revamping the reception area and introducing a small café
- a replacement roof over the main pool hall and other areas of the building

While the work is ongoing, remember you can still visit our other leisure sites including The Look Out, Bracknell Leisure Centre and Downshire Golf Complex.
Leisure services review
Do you use leisure services in Bracknell Forest? We are undertaking a review of the leisure services provided at Bracknell Leisure Centre, Coral Reef Waterworld and Downshire Golf Complex. Due to severe financial pressures on the council, this could result in facilities being managed by a third party operator by early in 2018. A public meeting about this was held at Bracknell Leisure Centre on 5 January.
Car park - important notice
The Coral Reef car park is permanently closed to the public at all times due to the Coral Reef refurbishment project.
