We went during half term when the park was lit up. It was brilliant. The kids especially loved the dinosaurs. The few rides were also a hit. We had a great afternoon/evening here.

I say "more than once" as in during the 7 days your ticket is valid for free return visits. The admission isn't great value for money if you only visit once. We visited three times in a week, my son and I riding the Cliffhanger...More

I would highly recommend this place for young children. Not for older children. They're are only a couple of rides. The staff were very friendly. I found it very overpriced for what it was. found it quite overpriced.

Taken here by our 8 & 10 year old grandchildren rather than Robin Hill. For one day it's expensive. If you want to visit for multiple days I suppose the entry fee might be justified. Some of the attractions are weather dependent so you could,...More
