We had arranged to meet up with family today (2 May) and were quite worried about the bad weather forecast but needn't have worried as a lot of the activities are based in doors. We were a group of 2 x 8 year olds, 1 x 5 year old and 5 adults and all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, even me at... More

Fantastic Karen! We're so glad you all had a great time here yesterday and well done for braving our 25ft drop slide! Having over 110,000 sq ft of indoor facilities and acres of outdoor fun, makes us a truly 'all-weather' attraction so the weather needn't spoil anyone's day. We are very grateful for your positive feedback - I have already... More

Spent a great day out with my daughter and her friend at the Milky Way Adventure Park. Good value for money as the whole day was spent having fun, riding the Cosmic Typhoon Roller Coaster, Cosmic Caterpillar, Droid Destroyer Dodgems, Clone Zone Alien Interactive Ride, The Milky Way Railway and energetic time in the Time Warp Adventure Play Area.

Everyone to their own opinion but it is one of the major drawbacks to pages like this. People can make negative comments regardless. How do we know Gimmick4Life wasn't rude to the staff? MW say the Gimmick4Life would have been told start was open / available? And if you go to an outdoor venue in April then it is hardly... More

Dear Nick. People will inevitably have varying opinions of all things in life which we like yourself certainly respect - family days out are obviously one of them. Despite all our efforts we know we cannot please everyone all of the time however it certainly more than makes up for it when people like you take it upon themselves to... More

The Milky Way offers something for everybody! I have a 2 small children (nearly 2&4) and they both love it.

A lovely family day out, plenty to entertain and tire out the children. I have had the pleasure of visiting this attraction and see it grow over the last 18 years with my son and now my grandchildren. Well done Milky Way, looking forward to the next visit.

We regularly visit the Milky Way, my boys are 2 & 4 and absolutely love it. The littlest is now big enough to go on the caterpillar ride & they even put on a slower dodgem session for the little ones, the indoor play area is staffed & little stars is always a big hit! Overall it's a brilliant day... More
