"Fantastic day out - the littlies love it!!…"
Our most recent visit was at the end of the summer holidays - I took my 4 and 1 year olds on my own and we stayed and played all day!! My 4 year old boy loves everything about the park; the train ride, the tractor ride, the blooming 'mummy gets wet' boozy barrel ride and his new favourite the Angry Birds themed playground. My 1 year old little girl loved toy town - especially the musical house!
There are parts of it that are looking a little tired but I don't think the kids notice so I don't care.
The food is overpriced and rubbish which really does let the rest of the park down. This said it doesn't impact on our enjoyment of the day as I tend to take a picnic, even in winter (flask of hot soup and rolls!) and there is ample space to sit and eat.
The 'Night before Christmas' ride which opens in the lead up to Christmas is amazing! You take a sleigh ride through a winter wonderland to arrive at santa's door - you then go into his living room for a chat and to get your gift. We took our little ones last year and they loved it so much we've already booked to go again this year on Christmas Eve! The staff manage this area really well as there are several 'santas' but the elves make sure children don't leave 2 different doors at the same time so the magic isn't spoiled.
Overall great days out are to be had here and I will definitely be returning (probably lots of times, lol).Read moreLess
"Why is this place so popular? Its a very good…"
Why is this place so popular?
Its a very good concept, but it feels very dated and worn out. I was expecting it to be a bit rundown, but not to the state it was when we went.
The rides and attractions were very dirty and grubby looking, and hardly anything workrd properly.
Food was terrible, again I was expecting the usual served at these places, but this was dire beyond dire, even my OH (who lives on junk) found it inedible!
There didnt seem to be much to hold interest and my daughter found quite a few of the things intin=midating (as did I).
I could see it being brilliant if only they would refurb, and repaired stuff.
For 11 quid, it aint worth itRead moreLess

"We took DD (4) and DS (2) to this park…"
We took DD (4) and DS (2) to this park a month ago. It is excellent park for under 10s. The day was surprisingly stress free. It wasn't too crowded so we didn't have to queue for anything. The children had a ball. We went on a boat ride, a Robin Hood ride, a Sleigh ride and tractor ride. It is ideally set up for young children and we would definitely go back. Much better for the young ones than a big park like the pleasure beach.Read moreLess

This is an excellent value for money theme park for small children. However, if the children are 7+ the rides and attractions are very tame. There is plenty of nice areas for picnics but buying food on-site is not great.Read moreLess
"A brilliant day out for the young ones. I have…"
A brilliant day out for the young ones. I have a 3 and a 2 year old and they both adored it, spent a whole day there which made it really good value for money. Rides are great for the age range, large sand play area, fairytale land, wild wild west.... All with loads to do. Huge indoor play centre which is great in itself. Will definitely be going back!Read moreLess

A brilliant children's theme park, friendly caring staff, excellent rides and attractions, and good inexpensive food. They have a new attraction called Crash Landings, an indoor play area and also a new Christmas ride for a truly memorable Santa visit.Read moreLess
