My daughter attends lessons here and is doing fantastic. But my bug bear is that the adults are allowed to wear out door shoes to pool side. They are making access from the changing rooms to pool inaccessible and a fire hazard. I’m sat here watching the crowding now nevermind the bad hygiene

I do my scuba training there, its a bit old and tired looking. The dive pit could use a better filter.

The ideal swim-fun location for our 5 yr oldgranddaughter. Shallow play area with smallslide, water jets and fun showers to entertainthe small ones and introduce them to waterin safety.Then the bigger pool is shared with adult swimmers but more than enough room forwater slides and the ideal depth to learn to swim and gain confidence.Very well run with attentive staff, and keptclean and well organised from booking in,to chilling or dining in the café.Recently tried the bowling too.

Good sports hall. Adequate seating. Friendly staff. My only complaint is cafeteria not a lot of options and burgers expensive for what you get.

Best place for kids hangout, swimming 🏊‍♂️ water slides 🛝 pool games, plenty of space for changing rooms, they have bar and restaurant inside as well so while kids enjoy you can have coffee or tea or brunch, they have jumps in water from height as well plus they have vying slide as well.. and then they have water waves but that’s only for short time 🌊Overall it’s a good experience and kids loving it..!!

The pool was warm and lots of different pool areas are available. There is a large family/wave pool, a deeper 25 m pool and a diving pool, plus a good variety of water slides.It is easy to get to by both public transport and car and there is ample parking. Top tip: drive right to the bottom of the car park and across the roundabout and you will almost always get parked close to the entrance. Everyone seeem to bail out before.The changing rooms are great. There are loads of lockers and cubicles of various sizes and, in many visits, we have never had to wait. The showers are also nice and warm and there are plenty of them.There is a cafe which my wife has used on occasion without complaint, but we have never had food as it expensive. You can drop down into barnsley town centre for some amazing cafes to be honest.Top tip: I would recommend buying tickets in advance. This speeds things up at the counter and guarantees you a place. If you can’t make it, then you can switch days.

Always fun for kids at Metrodome.With friendly staff members, place to eat and have nice coffee.Very colourful swimming pool with perfect temperature for each age.Has bowling with some arcade area and gym too if you want join them with a membership.Parking usually crowded near the entrance but at the back of it usually easy to find a space.Suitable access to disabled people.

A lovely place to visit. I would say it was more for the younger child as there was not a lot to do with only having a wave pool, a swimming pool and a splash pad area. However there are slides for the older child which are all different speed levels and diving boards for the confident swimmer. If your child is not keen on slides then they might get bored with only the 2 pools.Both the pool are accessible for all abilities and ages which is an added bonus.Over all we had a great time and as the other reviews have said it was busy but it was the school holidays.
