I went about 4 years ago and thought it was fantastic. I'd never heard of it before so wasn't expecting much and was really surprised how good it was. If it's a nice day take their swimming costumes as there's a lovely picnic area with loads of water sprays they can play in.

Our children liked it so much we went twice in one week! They were 6, 4 and 1

My 7 year old loved it.

My DD is too young, but all my friends with older kids love it.

Its good but after paying to get in I didn't expect to have to pay extra for some of the rides. Have lots of cash with you.

Don't forget your swimming stuff for the wet play bit and take a picnic!

I think there should be a reduced rate for mums/dads/carers that just stand around holding the bags. I begrudge paying full price. grin

From what I hear it's good we like woodlands too (dd just turned 6 and there is LOADS to do and masses of indoor rides soft play!) but rhat's nearer Dartmouth so may not be so local.

Crealy is very good, a bit expensive but worth it for a treat.
Lots to do.
You will have a very tired child at the end of the day!

I think Woodlands is much better and very reasonable if you are camping as free entry.

I think that Crealy do a free return within 7 days which is well worth it if you want to go back in again. My eldest is 13 and has just outgrown Crealy now - we usually go to the one in Cornwall when we are there. Have been to Woodlands and that went down well too but make it a whole day - first in last out! Like Horatio i get really annoyed with all the theme parks that then try to con you out of even more money with rides once inside. wish they would all get the message and make it all free. Mumsnet campaign perhaps?

Not sure when you are planning to go but I got a voucher for £2 off for a maximum of five people. If you pm me your address I can post it to you. If not anyone else who is wanting to go before 31 August.
