Brilliant place for young children and suitable in all weather's with the indoor play areas. Only draw back is that it isn't very cheap for parents/grandparents who don't actually use the rides etc, should be a small charge for them to enter the park just to accompany children.

It's tired and quite run down making it okay for small ones. Our 7 year old did okay but there are better theme parks for the money. Wouldn't go back. Sorry Wheelgate you've got oodles of potential your not maximising on.

Recently went with family and friends family. It was as the title says 'just ok' nothing more nothing less. All staff seemed unhappy to be working (not the best for a kids attraction I must say) Wouldn't hurry to return

This place is brill for satisfying all weathers, its great for young kids and has a variety of activities, eg. the farm, waterpark, rides etc...However I was a little disappointed, it just wasn't as good as I expected, no one aspect of it was that great, for example we've been to better farms and theme parks. Some of the park... More

After looking forward to a great day and spending £48 for the four of us I was sadly let down. Fair enough the weather wasn't great but little specks of rain couldn't come quick enough for the staff as they seemed happy to close down rides and watched let down children. I understand health and safety is a priority. But... More

Negatives being - staff seemed unenthusiastic! Many rides unattended resulting in lots of time spent waiting around, lots of arcade type things and rides requiring additional payment (this should be... More

I paid £25 for myself and my 6 year old son. Considering there was a full days entertainment for him I think that's a fair price. The water park is new, clean and very well supervised. It requires a warm day though as the constantly flowing water is quite cold. Kids don't seem to mind! The indoor play area was... More

I won't repeat what everyone else has said - but there is lots to do here even on a showery day. Our 5 year old loves it and we've been twice. The first time we visited we wondered what we had come to, but there is more to it than you think. Try to get a discount code. We definitely... More
