Owner description: Ride, slide, splash and spin - with FREE entry, FREE parking and 25 rides and attractions Newquay's Holywell Bay Fun Park is a great day out for all the family and one of the top things to do in Newquay. One of Cornwall's top family attractions, Holywell Bay Fun Park is close to the beach and just 4 miles from Newquay. Our 'your day, your way' approach allows you to choose to either pay as you play or buy an all-day wristband for the ultimate family day out! Our all-day wristbands offer great value and don't forget, only those playing need to pay. Bring Granny, Gramps and Aunt Sally on your family day out in Newquay at no extra cost! Get fast and furious on our F1 go karts, drench Dad on our super squirty blaster boats, or dodge the mystical waterfall and make Mum mad by getting lost in our magical maze. Aim, shoot, spin and steer on rides and family attractions for all ages.

“Waste of time!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

When we arrived there it looked very out dated and not alot there. Prices were steep for what rides they did have. Wouldn't go back.

“Not bad but Not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Nice little location with a few things to keep you occupied but nothing great. The mini golf for us was the best thing. Some fun little courses. Unfortunantly didn't get to try the go karts which looked good. All the other games was a let down. The gun boats could have been great but again was a let down.

Free parking and entry was good so it is worth a visit but only for a short visit.

“its ok but no alton towers...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We went recently at last minute as weather was iffy but weather and views were high point. The pricing structure is odd namely wrists bands which allow the wearer on most rides (height/weight permitting) or pay as you play. We went in thinking best value for us was a £45 family ticket but were then told by a very informative staff member to just buy a kid ticket £15 and the adult with him goes on free...... Kerching!! This may or may not be true in late June but in Aug when the park is heaving expect it won't be the case. Most rides appear to have some element of driving skill and this can cause frustration if the rider has 2 left hands/feet! Cafe was good and quick service but lots of orders appeared to be wrong so kept hearing lots of staff apologies. Be prepared to get wet on some rides. Plan your visit to be a couple of hours because its not a whole day out.

Thank you for your comments. I'm sure you'll agree that you probably couldn't park in Alton Towers for £15 either :) We're quite unique in that you don't have to pay if you're not paying - which is great if you want to bring the extended family along and our prices are the same for the summer period too! And whilst we certainly don't pretend to be an Alton Towers we do try to be the best at what we are - a small family attraction in a coastal resort. We're glad you enjoyed your visit and hope you will return again in the future.
