I have been coming here since I was a child and we went recently with our own 4 children. We went on a Friday in school term so there were no queues for anything! The winter theme was awesome! There is something for every age, and yes adults too! Don't expect to do the whole park in 1 day though,... More

This place is great for kids and adults/teenagers. It's mostly for kids, but if you're older there are enough roller-coasters to keep you busy. The coffee and food is quite expensive (as is the entry), but it is definitely worth the price. If you want to save money you're allowed to bring your own food etc. I advice going during... More

I hadn't been here for years and had lovely memories. I wasn't sure about visiting without having a child in tow, but actually it was great, and probably more fun for doing it that way. As soon as you get there the magic starts because suddenly you realise that there is music everywhere. I'm not a big fan of rollercoasters,... More

Great rides, fantastic shows, well organized and easy to walk. So but half the people there are smoking. It's worse than a bar in Holland! Try lighting up at Disneyland and you'd get tackled by security in a heartbeat. Apparently kids in Holland don't suffer from second hand smoke though. We won't be back!
