A fantastic day out. We were a family group of children aged 2,5,8, adults and grandparents and friends. We bought wristbands for the children (simple system by height). I was very impressed that one adult could ride free with our 2year old, and one adult free with our five year old on some of the scarier rides. It made the... More

What a great place this is. We took our 2 girls aged 1 and 4. There were plenty of rides for both of them to go on and the fact that parents ride free with children with red or green bands is ideal. The staff at this attraction are so helpful and a pleasure to deal with. It's nice to... More

Great value Theme Park with a maximum 1.2 height restriction on all the rides. Okay its no Alton Towers or Thorpe Park but it superb value. The day we were there the park opened at 11am and closed at 10.30pm. When it gets dark and the park flashing lights come on it looks like Las Vegas. Definitely worth a visit.

Owned by the adventure group who own restaurants, radio stations and aquaria and adventure island, so occasionaly bargain promotions are announced. These are well worth investing in. No car parking although there are public car parks near bur, good disabled access. Good wheelchair/pram access. Rides are best accessed with a wrist band which are offered at half price after 6pm....

We visited this weekend, 23rd August 2014. Had a party booked for 10 children, including the 2 birthday girls. The host, Jack, was so good. Nothing seemed too much trouble, even going on all of the rides with them! Lunch in Feelgoods was excellent value too. Proper homemade pizzas, a nice change to frozen ones, pasta, chips & dough balls... More

we go here regularly and we always have a great time on the rides and always tend to eat at the park. the last couple of times we've eaten at the jungle jive café and have always found it quick and reasonably priced. the burgers are fantastic! I recommend thoroughly.

For the second year running we visited in the height of the school summer holidays and had a great day out. No big queues, despite it being peak season. I think the longest we queued for anything all day was about 10-15 minutes and for most rides the queuing time was no more than 5 minutes. There's a good choice... More
