"Pleasantly surprised. My DD (9) and DS (6) loved it…"
Pleasantly surprised. My DD (9) and DS (6) loved it so much they were sprinting from ride to ride. As previous reviewer said, there were very few queues even on May Bank Holiday Monday.
Big hits were the bouncy pillows, bungee trampolines, carousel and Magic factory (funhouse type thing full of optical illusions).
We didn't bother with any of the shows but I think if my DC had been younger we would have.
9 years is probably the upper age limit.
Food is pretty dire. We took a picnic but went to the Tea Rooms mid afternoon hoping for homemade cakes etc but ended up with Twixes.Read moreLess
"Went here with ds (9) and dd (5) last weekend…"
Went here with ds (9) and dd (5) last weekend when visiting best friend in Kent. She has dd (9) and a ds (6). Did so with teeth so heavily gritted I had jaw ache - haven't been very keen <understates> on these kinds of places in the past.
Not often moved to do reviews, but this was cracking. Genuinely relaxing, firstly because it was astonishingly uncrowded - no queues for anything at all lasted longer than three minutes. I imagine it gets more chocker during the holidays, but I talked to a couple of other parents and they said that during term time it was always this stress-free.
Secondly because more or less everything except the food is included in the price. Usually come away from these places feeling humbug-ish, because once extras are factored in the price of the day seems to double, so I'mRead moreLess
"My son (aged 3) and daughter (aged 7) really enjoyed…"
My son (aged 3) and daughter (aged 7) really enjoyed the Hop farm there was lots of little bits and bobs to do several playarea (two indoors and one out) a giant bouncing pillow, crazy golf, painting (small charge) a few animals and we loved the magic factory! There a outdoot adventure thing but it was new when we went and wasn't well organised. Also since we visted they have now open a pirate sandpit which my friend said was fun. Forgot to mention the little rides/wax museum and shows its a really nice day out!Read moreLess
"This place is appalling value for money. It's just a…"
This place is appalling value for money. It's just a glorified playground with a serious need for a face-lift. There is a very poor choice of food available and what there is, is very expensive and of poor quality. There's nowhere to shelter if it's a wet day. I have also been to their Santa's Magical Kingdom at Christmas and this was a complete rip-off. The queues to see Santa were excessive and the gifts received were poor quality and not suitable for the age of the child (my 7yr old daughter received a cuddly toy suitable for a baby and my 1yr old a toy with an age range of 3+!). I have complained to the managment team only to be told that my version of events couldn't possibly be true. I would never visit this place again and would advise you to save your money. They are after one thing and that is maximising their profits at your expense.Read moreLess
