Ok if you don't have to travel far.

We visited on the busiest week in the French holidays. We were staying only 2-3 km down the road. The traffic is awful on the A660 so it would take ages if you were traveling... read more

Very expensive.. Not a lot to do with young children. Poor choice of food (microwave pizza)selling it at ridiculous prices.

We visited on the busiest week in the French holidays. We were staying only 2-3 km down the road. The traffic is awful on the A660 so it would take ages if you were traveling from further afield. We went on a warm but dull Monday which was ideal. No queues to get into park and not many on the... More

The park its self is looking tired, the rides are ok, but in totality not worth the entrance fee !. Food, drinks etc are very very expensive (So is park entrance really), my family visited this August, and we spent more time queuing than was reasonable ! Most rides we had to queue for over an hour per ride for... More

Travelled from near Bergerac and it took 3hours to drive there due to traffic (should take 1 hour) and then we sat in a traffic queue for the park for 1hr and 30 mins!!!!! We were then told that there were no lockers and each ride took an average of an hour to get on. The park closed at 6.30... More

Well, we must context this against our recent visit to Siam Park in Tenerife, which had amazing rides and was incredible value. But even if our review werent set against that experience I would say that this is the worst water-park we have ever been to. Despite a few negative reviews we decided to go. I wish we'd saved ourselves... More

A queue to get in (only one kiosk open, person so slow I thought they had stopped selling tickets altogether) and a one hour queue (no exaggeration) to buy "fast food" (ha ha!). That was before we even started on the water slide queues. Oh, and terrible traffic queues both there and back. A dentist appointment would have been more... More

My advice: arrive for 10:00 and get on biggest rides, bring a packed lunch and be aware that lots of the rides are for 2 riders. We are a family of 3 with a 1.2m, 6 year old and we were limited in the rides we could access. Had a great day but wasted time queuing for things we couldn't... More

This aqua park would probably be really good if you have 2 children that could go on the flumes together, but unfortunately for us we have 1 13 year old and if we had been able to work out from the web site before going that there are only 3 flumes that she could us on her own we wouldn't... More

Great place with excellent facilities including clean toilets. The food was lovely, cooked fresh and good value. The staff were really friendly. They had photographers going round there, but they didn't annoy you if you weren't interested. Some of the rides we had to queue up for but most of them we got on straight away and they were all...
