I have visited here many times with my own children. On this occasion my niece and, great niece (7). I'm in my mid 50s. My GN and I had a ball on the water slides, dodgems, putt putt golf and, water spray boats but, I always find a lot of ticket machines don't work which, is really frustrating.

A great place to cool off inside if it's a 35-40 temperature day. Loads to keep everyone occupied from water shoots to boats to crazy golf. Vouchers available so they make great gifts too as a leaving present for friends. Friendly helpful staff - definitely well worth a visit .

I would not tell interstate visitors to go there as it is a rip off especially if you are on a budget, good for kids if you have plenty of money to spend. The only way to enjoy it is to try to go on a package or early morning

This has been a great place to teke the kids for many years. Found that as the kids have gotten older is not as exciting and fun. Also think some of the games have broken and deteriated a bit. Needs some updating and new games/ machines. Still worth a visit with under 15 kids

Good fun for the kids. Good odea on hot days with the waterslides and bumperboats. Nice food too. Has a good range of arcade games and chances to win prizes with tickets won from games. Has a ferris wheel out the front which provides nice views of the beach and surroundings.

Our 4 year old loved the bumper boats and the kids play area was a god send as it kept our 1yo and 4yo entertained for ages all for one entry fee! The carousel is also a treat and historic

The beachouse replaced 'Magic Mountain' a long time ago and with it took a lot of the charm. It is over priced and very noisy. I choose to take my kids to other places that are far less expensive and just as fun. its hard when you have a family of 6.

Our 12,9 & 5 yr olds LOVED this place. Came in school holidays and took advantage of what I think is the best value for money, 2 hour "all inclusive" pass for $30pp which is only between 9am and 11am (so plan to arrive at 8:45am to maximise your time). Non-stop slides, mini-golf, dodgem cars, bumper boats, arcade games... the... More

Our boys (5 and 7) had a great time. It's too expensive for what it is - except for the $30 9-11am daily ticket. Great mix of things for small kids: waterslides, dodgem cars, dodgem boats, arcade games, mini golf....
