Tonight at a full council meeting a decision was taken to sell Waterworld which first opened in 1986.   Declining visitor numbers and the need for a number of major repairs led to council officials to consider the future of the centre earlier this year.

Back in the day Waterworld seen 100,000 visitors flocking to the centre during the summer.


Figures were also revealed earlier this year by the newsletter that the establishment cost the council around £43,000 each year which only opened 11 weeks.

The majority of council voted for the decision to be carried whilst 12 DUP members were against.
