“In summer do the Cat Track and skip the rest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

We visited this park in the summer with 3 adults and 4 children, aged 7, 8, 9 and 16. It's pretty new so we had high expectations but were a bit disappointed overall. Our 9 year old son saw they had a 'baby paintball' course on the sign out front and was really looking forward to it, but when we got inside we were told we needed a booking. The place was empty so it wasn't that they had another booking - most likely they didn't have staff on hand to run it.

Next the young kids tried the trampoline bounce. We've tried these before so know what to expect but here, the staff were sour-faced and downright grumpy. They were mostly young girls who just looked like they didn't want to be there.

The rotating ball was broken, the BMX track closed. We saw a couple of people on the humorously slow downhill scooters. The inflatable tube slide seemed popular with the young kids but not for our age group. The (free) water feature was fun - running through the various water fountain sequences.

The cat track was the saviour, however. This is a series of obstacles at ever increasing heights with a zip line finish. With 4 different tracks as well as a training area and a preschool track, it covers all ages and experience levels. Our kids loved exploring these and the having to think about what they were taught in the training. Highly recommended.

The food was average but not the worst we've had at parks. The spicy chicken wings were spicy but had been left in the warmer for far too long. The pasta was ok and the pizzas (the main focus of the restaurant) seemed fine.

In summary - if you have children over the age of 7 plan for a half-day visit, do the cat track and food (you can enter and leave the cat track as often as you like) and skip the rest.
