A perfect day out is not an exaggeration, if you have children between the ages of 6 months and eighteen this is the place to entertain them all. The Milky Way literally caters for all ages, when I went the last time my party's age ranged from 2 years to eighteen with several ages covered in between plus the adults... More

I have been visiting this place, since it was a milking farm, 25 years ago, and have watched it grow into something quite unusual. Though the rides aren't 'white knuckle', they're a lot of fun. I couldn't get my lot, aged between 12 and 22, off the roller coaster! The train ride and maze is great for the younger ones... More

Milky Way offers great value out for a family as the entry fee covers all the attractions and rides, as many times as you want, with the exception of the archery, which only costs £2, if you choose to do it. We took two 6 year olds, who had a great time. Repeated rides on the smaller roller coaster, (... More

Came with our children aged 7 and 10. They had an amazing day and did not want to leave. It's mostly under cover which is fantastic. It was very quiet when we visited which was great, I'm sure it gets very busy in the summer!
