Perfect for the kids, okay for the adults!

Kids would rate this 5/5 but as I'm a grown up (although some would argue) and would only go 4/5. This is mainly down to the fact that there is very little for the parents to do... read more

Kids would rate this 5/5 but as I'm a grown up (although some would argue) and would only go 4/5. This is mainly down to the fact that there is very little for the parents to do except spend on tea/coffee etc! No matter when we have been the fortress is never packed too much and the kids can run... More

I haven't been to the FF for 2 years, due to being so disappointed on my last visit. I visited today and I will certainly be going back. I felt the place was very clean, and the facilities were great- food and drink perfect for the establishment, staff were clearing tables regularly and the floors around the tables were spotless....

We almost didn't go because of the previous reviews but I'm glad we did. The play area is great for kids, lots to climb on and plenty of slides, our 2 year old didn't want to leave for 3 hours. Admittedly the food is basic fare - curly fries, chicken nuggets, etc. but what do you expect and it's really... More

I'm writing this review sitting in the Flying Fortress with my 3 year old on a Tuesday afternoon. There can't be more than a dozen other children here - so the place is really empty. As you know the place is a converted hangar with a big soft play area at one end. It's okay - but dated compared to... More

We visited the flying fortress while on holiday in the area, its brilliant for kids, its not perfect and they could certainly make little improvements that would make a massive difference , but it certainly achieved 2 hours of entertainment for the kids

Set under cover in an old aircraft hanger, this venue is ideal for a day out with the children. The adventure playground is shaped like an olden day aircraft and has many features in it to appeal to children of all ages, they even have a toddler section for the really little ones. Refreshments are available at realistic prices and... More

My friends and I really do call it "Hell". Have been here many, many times but to be honest I hate it. It's a seriously unpleasant place to spend time. It's very, very loud (it's hard to hold a conversation sometimes, particularly if it's raining on the big tin roof), has utterly appalling coffee (they've been told this by many... More

We arrived here just after midday with our 4 and 7 yr old... It was quite busy (expected on a not very sunny summer holiday afternoon) but after about 10 minutes a seat became free the kids had a great time in the play area which is looks very fun! Lots to do and very big. We also tried flying... More
