Attraction details
Owner description: Ride, slide, splash and spin - with FREE entry, FREE parking and 20 rides and attractions Holywell Bay Fun Park is a great day out for all the family. One of Cornwall's top family attractions, Holywell Bay Fun Park is close to the beach and just 4 miles from Newquay. Our 'your day, your way' approach allows you to choose to either pay as you play or buy bulk star deals, saving you pounds. What's more if you buy online ahead of arriving, you can save a further 10%. Our bulk star deals offer great value for money and don't forget, only those playing need to pay, so can bring granny and granddad on your family day out at no extra cost! Get fast and furious on our F1 go karts, drench dad on our super squirty blaster boats, or dodge the mystical waterfall and make mum mad by getting lost in our magical maze. Aim, shoot, spin and steer on rides and family attractions for all ages. When it's time to cool down we've got it covered! Our original ice cream parlour, Daisy's, is a beautifully designed space to sit back and enjoy a delicious Cornish ice cream, freshly made smoothie or milkshake. For lunch or a quick snack, enjoy a welcoming atmosphere and stunning views at The Diner. Serving hot and cold food and beverages, The Diner is a great way to power up before continuing play on the park. At the back is Jelly Tots, a soft play area for Toddlers. Next door at the Golf Club, Woody's bar and restaurant is open to all. It's the perfect place to sit back and relax whilst enjoying the amazing views over the famous Gull Rocks. Newquay's Holywell Bay Fun Park is open from 10.30am for the main season, Easter - October, but please check opening days and times on our website before embarking on your day out.

“Go Karting fun!”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

We visited here a couple of times as dog friendly and our kids loved the go karts, the battleships were very disappointing but everything else was good, worth a visit. It has a cafe etc, free entry and free car park.

“Good fun for a couple of hours!”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

We visited Holywell Bay Fun Park with our teenage grandsons again this year and found it empty for the first half an hour or so. The boys were the only ones using the F1 Go- Karts and had a great time racing each other around the track. All the staff were young, polite and friendly.

They also went on the racing cars and the battle boats. We had some tokens left from last year and when we took them into the shop, they gave us a card and exchanged the tokens for points on the card. When you go on any ride, the attendant will just swipe the card and the points are taken off for that particular ride. We used up nearly £50 in a short time but the boys had a good time so it was worth it.

We will revisit next time we are in Cornwall.

“Okay for a quick visit”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

I went with my partner and we're both 21. We just popped in to see what it was like. We went on the go-karts which were pretty decent (£4 per person), and Merlins maze as we thought that we would get the best value for money going on that (£2.50 per person), which turned out right because we got stuck for half an hour in the maze haa. Can see how it would be VERY expensive if you have alot of children though.

“Good to pass a couple of hours”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

An interesting pay as you go fun park. 3 different go-karting rides and quite good fun. Battleship was disappointing.
The maze is small but surprisingly difficult to get through. Myself and my 10 year old thoroughly enjoyed it but some younger children around us were getting frustrated.
The resturant was quite good, on the better side of what you might expect for this type of ve
Rides were pretty pricey, mainly £3.50/£4 each. Bulk buying of 'stars' brought it down a bit, but we spent £40 for 2 children in about 3 hours
We spent £16 for the four of us to play crazy golf. The course was good, but not exceptional, £2.50 per person would have been enough.
Saying all that, there is a 50% chance we may go back again.

“Good Honest Family Fun”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

The prices seemed to have hiked this year, but they have added new attractions. We spent about an hour with 6 kids on the 'panning for gold' attraction and complained that there was no gold. None of the 6 kids pulled any out at all! The guy told us he could do nothing so we requested a Manager. The manager added a bag of gold and saved the day!
