We visited here with 2 smash kids, 4 & 6, and whilst we'd great fun, it does work out very expensive. Most of the rides, bumper boats, small carousels, ladybird carousel etc, all €2 each for a few mins, claw machines to fetch teddys, most €1 a go, and some €2 a go. (50c in trabolgan). As I said great... More
