Stayed for an hour and left. Nothing to do, the majority of the rides were shut. Not enough there to keep a family entertain for a few hours never mind a day. Everything is old and in poor condition. The Big Sheep is a much better place to go. Would not recommend.

Dear reviewer. I'm sorry to hear you weren't overly impressed with your visit and surprisingly found 'nothing to do' here. Having been voted North Devon's 'Top Day Out with the Kids' for the past 3 years running and receiving Trip Advisor's prestigious 'Certificate of Excellence' for the past 4 years running we still understand we cannot please everybody all of...

Four of us went to Milky Way today (3 adults and a 4 year old), and loved it. We were enticed to Milky Way by the fact that it is mostly indoors and the weather was pretty bad. The indoor play area is great in that adults can use it as well, and the shows were very entertaining as well,... More

Hi Thomas. It was great to read your positive remarks about your day out with us. Having over 110,000 sq ft of indoor facilities and acres of outdoor fun it does truly make us an 'all weather attraction'. I'm pleased you found that the adults could join in as much as the children - it sounds like you all had... More

Walking in the member of staff on the desk was really lovely, took time to explain where everything was as it was our first time there. Walking a little further i said to my husband "at what time do you think we can leave and not look rude"?! Yes the place doesn't look appealing as it's mostly indoors but i... More

Hi Amanda. Many thanks for your refreshing outlook of your day spent with us. Being one of the largest undercover attractions in the south west certainly does have its advantages with our unpredictable British weather. As we were once a working farm (30 years ago) it may be fair to say some areas of the park aren't as aesthetically pleasing... More

Thought the admission prices were a bit on the steep side. My son is 7 and now old enough to go on all the rides on his own if he likes. This is a bit of a bonus. The rollercoaster was quite fun, with a mini rollercoaster for the youngsters. Indoor soft play area is quite big with plenty of... More

Thank you for your extensive and varied review.

Luckily for us, negative comments regarding the staff are extremely rare. I can only put this down to 'having... More
