Coral Reef Waterworld announces re-opening date

After being closed for nearly two years for a multi-million pound refurbishment the Bracknell water attraction is due to open again on September the 29th at 1030am.

Entry into Coral Reef will be by pre-booked tickets only for the first three days, (from Friday, 29 September – Sunday, 1 October). 

A peak time programme will run over all three days so all five waterslides will be in operation. 

Coral Reef Waterworld has undergone major refurbishment since its closure back in January 2016.

The installation of five new customisable interactive state-of-the-art waterslides - The Cannon; Poseidon’s Peril; Maelstrom; Storm Chaser and Aqua Splash, promise a range of light and sound experiences, from the gentle and serene to the extreme. 

In addition, visitors can expect to see a brand new reception area, significantly upgraded changing facilities with more family cubicles, baby changing areas, new showers, toilets and vanity areas. Coral Spa, formerly Sauna World, has also undergone extensive refurbishment. 

The first floor café area, now known as The Reef Restaurant, has also been completely revamped.

Visitors will also have the option of the poolside snack bar, The Beach Hut or a grab ‘n’ go food and drinks option, The Dunes Café, in the reception area. 

Cllr Iain McCracken, executive member for culture, corporate services and public protection, said:

“I’m thrilled that we can welcome visitors back to one of Berkshire’s most popular attractions. I had the privilege of opening Coral Reef back in 1989, so it’s a real honour for me to be here again and getting ready to officially open the doors once more. 

“Coral Reef is looking fantastic and the new waterslides are really going to set it apart from the rest. It is more than just a swimming pool, it’s a place for family fun and thrill seekers alike. 

“We’re anticipating it will be busy over the opening long weekend, so look out for details of how to book your tickets in advance and arrive in plenty of time for your session. We look forward to seeing you there.” 

From Monday, 2 October, the normal off peak and peak timetable will resume.
