One of Cornwall's top family attractions, Holywell Bay Fun Park is close to the beach and just 4 miles from Newquay. Our 'your day, your way' approach allows you to choose to either pay as you play or buy an all-day wristband for the ultimate family day out! Our all-day wristbands offer great value and don't forget, only those playing need to pay. Bring Granny, Gramps and Aunt Sally on your family day out in Newquay at no extra cost! Get fast and furious on our F1 go karts, drench Dad on our super squirty blaster boats, or dodge the mystical waterfall and make Mum mad by getting lost in our magical maze. Aim, shoot, spin and steer on rides and family attractions for all ages. « less

Holywell Bay is widely advertised as being a free attraction, which the entry is! However, the park works using a token scheme: you buy tokens from the gift shop, and spend them on the attractions. These tokens can work out expensive if there is a group of you or you want to go on multiple rides. The highlight for me... More

Arrived here full of expectation with 2 little ones on our holidays to newquay. £15 each or £47 for a family ticket is ridiculous. It is advertised that u can pay as u go but most if the rides at 4.50 each!! Also its supposed to be 20 rides but that's a joke too. One is a very,small bouncy castle... More

Decided to visit here with our 3 year old on a particularly dull day in Cornwall. Glad we did! Lots for little man to do from trampolines, go karts, remote control cars and a very good maze where even mummy and daddy were worrying how to get out! We especially liked the crazy golf course , one of the best... More

We stumbled across this park via a leaflet and thought we'd give it a try. What a glorious day we had! We took our two twin boys here and had possibly, one of the most fun days we've had in Cornwall so far. The rides were all great and with the all day wristbands, nearly all of them free. We... More

Good for all the family, good selection of rides! Adventure golf was really good and great for all the family if you need a laugh and the weather is nice! Also go karts were very good especially if you are competitive! ONLY downfall is that on most occasions of visiting the park has shut way to early around half past... More

£58 for a family of 4 for what is a glorified fair. Nice it may be but £58 that's alton towers money. The Web site in my opinion seems to imply that it is bigger than it is. I mean seriously the fair that visits my town annually is bigger and has better rides.

Dear TommyGun04 - thank you for your review. I would be very interested if you could please contact us directly regarding your day. We do have one small ride which is not opening for the 2015 season as we have struggled to source some specialist parts for it. However, all of our other 20+ rides are fully operational and very...

We visited the park as 4 adults, bought the £19 each wrist band to allow as many 'goes' as you like, however we would have been better off paying for the individual activities as there wasn't much at all for adults, we went on the battleships, go karts and did the crazy golf. Granted, all of which we're good fun,... More

Hi Emma W - thank you for your comments, although we were quite surprised to read them. The wristbands were introduced this year following huge demand from our customers. The F1 Go Karts alone cost £4.50 for a go (which compared to other Go Kart tracks is incredibly good value for money). The all-day wristbands allow you as many goes... More
