Coral Reef is closed for its transformation until 2017. Work is progressing swiftly on its exciting refurbishment.

As of 23 September 2016, work to build the base for the new flume tower (which will house the five fantastic new waterslides) began, after the old flumes and the flume tower were demolished over the summer.

Elsewhere, the scaffolding required for the main pool hall roof to be taken down and replaced has been completed. The work to the roof will begin shortly.

The stripping out of the fittings in the reception area, changing rooms and Coconut Grove café is also near completion.

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
  • a replacement roof over the main pool hall and other areas of the building
