just wondering if they could go or do you have to have a ticket to get in?

It is free to get in but expensive once inside

Free to go in but every single things costs mega money inside. Nothing free to do except walk around.

is it what the rides etc... they have already done ice skating elsewhere so was thinking food, rides - how much are we talking smile

What the others said. We blew £60 in just under an hour and then left as there is nothing to do there that doesn't cost money.

ok Im not even going to suggest it lol

Rides vary between £3 and £5 each. One rollercoaster ride cost us £20 for the four of us eek!

You buy tickets for the rides at £1 or £2 each I think, but each ride is a minimum of 3 tickets per person.

Hideously expensive if a few of you want to go on one of the more expensive rides (the 3 ticket one was a two minute toddler ride)

i am not going anywhere near it!! would lead to the hell of having to say no ad nauseum. i think the rides and attractions have to be pre booked

Rides are more than has been suggested here... Cheapest child ticket I saw was £3, most expensive 'adult/teenage' ride £9 each! Most rides avg. at £5-7 a head, adult tickets cost more than child ones, even when really you're just accompanying them!

DH and I went with baby DS, we enjoyed walking around but I was very grateful DS isn't old enough to ask for stuff! We bought a hog roast roll each and a portion of chips to share- £20! No drinks.

it should be renamed "the winter wonderland for the rich" as i can't inagine an ordinary family being able do anything than walk around agog at the prices

Attractions have to be prebooked but not rides. I was astounded at the amount of people there spending money, it must be taking a huge chunk of loads of families Christmas budgets.
