Booked to go late September and really hope they do else theres not much for us to do with toddlers! Surely they can't justify it for much longer? Anyone got the inside track?

You can book 4 slots for a midweek break now not just the 2. So it is getting better.

I think they will keep the booking slots personally. But up the amount of times you can go.

We won’t be going back unless they do. It spoiled our last holiday there.

They're keeping them for the foreseeable future. It makes sense to them I guess- less people doing the free swimming and therefore spending more on activities!
It spoiled our last break though as it seemed more crammed in and busy, as opposed to people coming and going throughout.

They put out an article claiming people preferred the slots. It is a nightmare with toddlers and you have to be quick booking your slots too otherwise you're left just with evening slots.

Oh I didnt know that! Thanks for the update, that does make things better.
But yes, agree with the other poster that it's so hard to get a toddler on time somewhere! Plus we're going as a big family unit, so wanted to be able to do our own thing a bit, which we can't with pool slots.
Ah well fingers crossed it will change soon!
