Brilliant and great entertainment for the kids. Very good value with the all-in tickets. Just make sure you read the price tariff & the age of children you pay for before going into the ticket office, otherwise you may end up paying a bit more! The train rides were very enjoyable and the canoes were just brilliant. The crazy golf was also great fun and just crazy!! A good place to go on a nice day.

We've just spent a day here. It rained almost all day but it didn't matter. Great day for the kids. So much for them to do and one entry price pays for almost everything.

We had a great few hours, but to be honest the entrance fee seemed a bit steep. We arrived after 12 but had to pay full price even though the website said there were reduced afternoon rates. Apparently these don't start until 2:40.

However, the kids absolutely loved the trains. The staff were very friendly and enthusiastic. There's plenty to do for a few hours, even if it is not too big. Overall it is good, but just felt we paid a lot of money compared with other places.

Thanks for the feedback and glad you had a good visit. Our website does state that in August the afternoon saver fares start at 2.40 pm but I have just amended this to make it clearer. With regard to our prices, I feel they are good value considering there are no additional charges at all apart from the electric cars.
