This attraction is closed waiting on a buyer. Very sad indeed has left a scar on the landscape at Hillaries . You still have the beach, b b q's, safe swimming in ocean, shops, eateries. Still a great place to visit.

This whole section of Hillaries needs an upgrade. The mini golf is terrible 1980s style. The waterslides are ok but haven't been upgraded for about 20 years. It's a real band aided area that could be so much more. Sadly dissapointed.

The 6D cinema wasn't working and it had a run down end of summer feel. We bought the family ticket but the fairground ride wasn't working and they soon closed the high ropes and the trampolines were fun but worn out at one end which was roped off. The water slides were fun but again a bit worn and the... More

I went there with a group and being gluten intolerant they had to provide a different meal for me. I ended up with nuggets which are clearly not gluten free and having no other food for the entire day I ate them anyway. I know what usually happens when I eat gluten but their food gave mist of our group... More

The kids (ages 5-8) loved it but rather pricey. We paid $95 for the 3 kids although they do not charge for adult guardians not using the facility. In the blast of a 40degree weather, they ought to have more shaded areas. Even if you could find a cool spot, the tables and chairs are of deploring state. Shower facilities... More

Not worth the money and not much to do.Not enough staff to cover the rides and other attractions. Very disappointed.

This was disappointing overall, there are not very many rides/activities and some have age and/or height/weight restrictions, so in all there were only three activities which our 6 and 8 year olds could go on together. Would suggest it is not necessary to purchase tickets for adults as you can supervise/watch without going on the rides. In brief, a poor... More

Visited with the family. Was a great day out for the kids. The high wire course wasn't in operation and hasn't been for same time. But there is putt putt golf, a little rock climbing wall, trampolines, a small water park and other activities for the kids
