The Lexicon opening

The Lexicon opens for business

Yesterday, 7 September 2017, marked a historic event in Bracknell’s history as The Lexicon opened for business for the very first time.

More than 150 local children, from primary and junior schools across the borough counted down to the historic event, which was marked with a fanfare of green, gold and silver streamers and leaf shaped confetti, cascading across the new town centre’s walkways and squares

Get caught up in the Maelstrom at Coral Reef

Details of the fifth and final waterslide have been revealed for the new Coral Reef Waterworld.

Maelstrom will be a slide of two halves, lulling riders into a false sense of security as they ride a raft on calm waters through a peaceful scene of changing colours and sounds.
