“Good for half hour fun if local”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

The rides are very cheap if you buy £10's worth if tokens, you get 16 tokens and most things are one token for 3 minute, needs modernising but in some ways the oldness is indearing! Definitely worth a visit but only if you are loca. It's located in a sports centre right at the other end of the field near a ski slope and race track!!

“Friendly, cheap, nostagic”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Really lovely park, like stepping back in time. Family run, Gary always very welcoming. Cheap drinks and icecreams. Can have birthday parties there. Kids absolutely love it, really sweet rides, about 75p each, but cheaper if you buy more tokens. Motorbike ride is the best! Suitable up to about 9 years max.

“Brilliant!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

It's brilliant down here, for £10 you get 16 rides or goes on the equipment, the chap who runs it is lovely and cheery. I have been to a child's birthday party here too and the kids loved it. There's a coffee machine to get a warm drink and ice creams. Overall worth a look :-)

“Good for little ones”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

I took two 2-3 year old children today and they didn't want to leave. There were also some older kids about 10 years old! The staff member was brilliant , bearing in mind he was on his own. He was kept busy clearing up after the overnight rain showers.

Yes the rides are dated and some look as if there are home made attachments but this is part of the charm. It is no paultons park!!! However, it brings back memories of my childhood and the kids did not want to leave.

75p a ride- bargain!!!!

Yes a lick of paint would do it the world of good, however, we need to make sure more people know about this little treasure of a place so that they have more revenue to do the sprucing up! that people comment about!
