Owner description: For a truly out of this world experience, don't miss out on the fun at the Milky Way Adventure Park - recently voted Devon's Large Attraction of the Year. Just 10 minutes outside of Bideford in North Devon awaits a full day of adventure for the whole family come rain or shine. Take a ride on the Cosmic Typhoon roller coaster - enjoy the panoramic views from the top, but prepare to scream as you face the hair-raising drop! Have a close encounter with aliens in the Clone Zone dark ride and take on the huge death slide in the Time Warp - if you dare. The newest addition is an amazing display of Sci-Fi memorabilia - one man's vast private collection of characters, collectables and fan art from film and TV...from Daleks to Darth Vader! There's plenty for smaller adventurers too including the innovative Little Stars play centre designed for babies to pre-schoolers. It has a multi-level soft play area, sensory room for babies, a dressing up area, roll play pizzeria complete with kitchen, tables and food to stimulate imaginative play - and even a pretend car wash with ride-on cars. The park also boasts the UK's largest bouncing pillow, as well as a smaller pillow just for children under five and accompanying adults. One of the parks most popular attractions are the droid destroyer dodgems which guarantee a bumping good time for everyone, including little ones with special gentle rides for smaller visitors. Another favourite is the Time Warp - North Devon's biggest indoor play area, with assault courses and slides built for adults as well as children. To wind down, visitors can take a leisurely trip on the Milky Way railway, and then sit back and enjoy the shows which include Merlin from Britain's Got Talent with his fun packed skills and thrills show and breath-taking displays from the North Devon Birds of Prey Centre. The park also has a 1,000 seat indoor arena, so you can be sure that the show goes on whatever the weather! Alongside this, there's plenty to try your hand at including archery, golf and laser shooting for all the family. With over 110,000 sq feet of indoor fun & acres of outdoor activities, The Milky Way is the biggest all weather, family day out in North Devon. It's designed to be fun for parents as well as kids and there are no hidden extras as all of the rides, shows and play areas are included in the entrance fee. Your adventure awaits you - are you ready?

“A great day out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

We always come to the Milky Way whenever we stay in North Devon and came again in April 2014.

As before, we had a great day out! There's loads to do, fun rides, shows, dodgems, places to eat and drink, birds of prey and so on. There's something for everyone and the guy in the Clone Zone is totally bonkers and makes the ride great fun!

Me and my 12 year old always enjoy going on the Black Hole, which is a huge slide with a vertical drop and completely terrifying!

Most of it is under cover, so it's a great place to come if the weather's bad.

We stayed about six hours in total and would definitely recommend it.

It's fantastic to hear you've enjoyed another day out with us. I'm sure you'll agree that spending 6 hours here proves to be a value for money day out. Thank you for your review Vickie and we look forward to seeing you again soon. P.s Greg in the Clone Zone is definitely bonkers! :)

“Great Day Out for All the Family at The Milky Way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

We visit The Milky Way every year when we holiday in Devon and often go back a second time in the week and make use of the VIP return ticket where you can go back for £6.50 per person each time you visit for the next year. Very good value for money, even at full price. No hidden extras except for the archery, which is very reasonable.

“Great day out for all the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

we visited the Milky Way for the 1st time on Easter Sunday. We found it a great place for all the family. We have 4 children - age 11, 4, 3 & 1. There was lots to do for all ages and we all thoroughly enjoyed our day. One of the best places we have visited where we all had fun

Dear Kirsti. It's great to hear that despite the broad age range of your children you still all managed to enjoy a fun filled day. We have always tried to provide activities for all ages so we're very pleased we achieved this for your family and hopefully many others. We hope to see you again in the near future.

“Great day with kids!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

We visited we with our two young children and we all had a great day!! The shows are great, both children and parents will enjoy them! We really enjoyed the bird show, gutted it rain so couldn't see outdoor show :( All the play areas are great with loads to do indoors if it's raining, we loved they did a slower turn on the bumper-cars for the little ones. The cafe was lovely and food was nice.
