Fantastic day out with different activities for the children to do which they all thoroughly enjoyed. Like the idea that you only pay for the activities you want to participate in and prices were very reasonable. Would go here again.

This would be a fantastic place for older kids but our 5 year old did enjoy it, the first day anyway. Don't forget to pay for the attraction you want to go on, at reception before you embark on your walk.
