This is our eighth visit in the last 5 years (7 of which have been as parents), the main reason for returning is for the kids entertainment as like many, my young child loves Boomer. Since this has been moved to the main venue it has gone down hill, the entertainment starts at 6:00pm and during our stay, has ended by 7:30pm to allow for Bingo, dispute the brochure advertising entertainment through to 9pm and beyond. The new entertainment team are decent enough so is a tad unfair to measure them against JohnBoy, and what little dedicated evening entertainment for the kids is of a good standard, although I think anyone over the age of 8 would be bored quickly (although to be fair there was only a couple of kids over 6 during our stay).
Soft Play area is ok, this is where the old children's entertainment used to be, but isn't supervised by staff and of course the bigger kids will run riot in there, which is fine, they need to enjoy themselves too.
The sports bar, if it can be classed as that, is based in the old Waves Bar area (now renamed Sports Bar) is around 14 screens that are mainly next to each other showing the same channel.
The site itself is still in great condition, the grounds well maintained, the staff are cheerful and helpful.
The onside shop is now a Spar, this appears to be much better than what was there last year (Costcutter??) and seems to offer a wider range and the prices reasonable.
Overall, still a great park if you've not got children, but for those with kids, the new timetable doesn't lend itself well to you. I hope things do change slightly as I would love to still come here in the future, but this is the worst of the visits since coming here as parents.
