Thinking it would be ok to spend 3-4 hours, we went bit late. But this place has so much to offer. We were 3 families with four 6yo, but not was it fun. Will visit back soon.

Fantastic family day out for all ages. Car park £6 for whole day. We bought wristbands online which saves you £2-3 each. Tickets cost £1.30 each and rides are between 1-4 tickets, so wristbands work out best. Cost us £54 for 3 adults and 1...More

An expensive day out. Can’t believe that parking isn’t included in the price when you spend money on wristbands and/or numerous tickets. There really should be a price ceiling that once you reach, the parking is included. The food was abominable as well. Even when...More
