We visited here a couple of weeks ago on a Monday and really enjoyed it was quiet but expect that was due to kids going back to school can imagine it gets busier weekends and half terms. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful and even though it was quiet they still ran all the themes so my little... More

We visited the Milky Way in late September with a 7 y/o and 18 month old. No queues, not busy at all. Not bad price. 7 y/o is a bit of a daredevil, so would’ve loved more rides than the one roller-coaster (even though she did like it). The bouncy pillows and zip lines were good. Indoor play areas, slides... More

As a family we love The Milky Way. It has something for all ages and has most of it is indoors you are not affected by the weather. We always enjoy the bird of prey show and seeing 'Merlin'.

We won some tickets in a raffle and my children 10 (boy) and 7 (girl) were really looking forward to visiting. We were camping near by and unfortunately we chose a very wet and windy week! Our trip to the Milky Way was just what we needed. There is plenty to do inside and while there was a break in... More

I took my 2 yr old here very recently and we had a great time. We spent quite a bit of time in Little Stars, which was great for both of us as I could grab a coffee and cake while she explored the play area. The Caterpillar rollercoaster just outside little stars was also a popular one for her.... More

We visited during our recent holiday with our 18 month old son, as we had won free tickets, and were really impressed. The Little Stars area is fantastic for young children to let off steam and explore - our son enjoyed the soft play and the great selection of toy vehicles. He loved the caterpillar rollercoaster and the train ride... More

We visited in mid-September so with it being term time the place was deserted! I think there was only about five other people there the whole day so we rattled around a bit but It felt like our own private playground! No queues for the rides, activities etc which was fantastic and as our son us only 2.5yrs, no danger... More
