Ok, so....two adults, 12 yr old and a 5 yr old visited today and to be fair we hadn't read the reviews on here beforehand. If I had, we probably wouldn't have bothered. That said... read more

Visited some time ago and mentioned this at the time that the rides were covered in rust, we went on things several times with the day pass as there wasn't that many things to go on. I just got that feeling that the rides weren't that safe, just a niggle and they've had a few incidents over the years. At... More

This park isn't what I call a theme park, it is just a few rides thrown together basically with no theme attached whatsoever. The park isn't very permanent looking either, the ground seems a mess, they don't have a proper staff building. Not like proper theme parks considering this is 'Scotland's Theme Park'. The storage place at the back of... More

How is it that in England there are massive theme parks all over the place, but in Scotland we get two mediocre ones, claiming to be everything but really a let down compared to our English theme park cousins? When we turned up the place was packed, buses, cars, the whole place was chock full. The rides are OK, but... More

Went here today with my sister and 4 children, the kids loved it but couldn't believe how quiet it was, it's only my opinion but I think if they got rid of the tacky arcade machines and put in a couple of restaurants with good quality food this place would be brilliant. I've given an extra star on this purely... More

That said, here is my honest opinion... The park itself is not a "theme park" like Alton towers so don't go expecting it to be that. It... More

Had an amazing day out at M&D's today with my three girls and I'm so relieved the park has not closed down. It's a real shame to see it so quiet for the summer holidays however there was no waiting about for rides and we got so much fun packed it.

Came for a day out with the kids. Four of the rides were closed. Things really need up dated it was very amateur for Scotland's top theme park. It was very expensive not worth the money .
