We went as a family, and had a pleasant day there, there is rides for all ages,all at one entrance price, it was clean and tidy, and we enjoyed the parrot and Seal show.
I felt that there was some areas that needed some attention too, like an attration, or something to fill the deserted area.
Overall a pleasant experience and we would go back again.

queues were not that bad for rides, have had worse. Chips from the chip shop on site, were greasey and lookied like the oil needed changing. Recommend taking your own food as cheaper and there is ample space to picnic. a lot to do, kids loved it, looking forward to returning in 2013 to see the new ride etc x

We visited Pleasure wood Hills as a family of four on Saturday 6th April and had a great day out which was helped by probably the best weather of the Easter break although it was still unseasonably cold. In my opinion the full price on the gate admission price was a little expensive although we obtained disount vouchers from the tourist information centre which meant that our day out ultimately proved to be good value for money.

This is our third time visiting Pleasurewood Hills and it was very good to see that several new rides and attraction had been installed over the winter shutdown or were in the process of being completed which shows that the park is heading in the right direction. The general park area, shops, toilets and show area was generally very tidy and all of th staff were very polite, friendly and helpful.

As for rides and shows there was more than enough to keep our two children aged eight and four fully occupied during the day with the Enigma roller coaster and parrot and seal shows being firm favorites. At the time of our visit there were two rides, Wipeout and big train that were out of service but this did not have a major impact on our day, although the fact that Wipeout was not running may have been frustrating for older children or teenagers as this is the parks major white knuckle ride.

We would recommend Pleasurewood Hills as a good family day out but as stated above its best to seek out some of the readily available discount entry price vouchers to ensure that you get the best value for money.

Pleasure wood Hills is a great day out for the family. Its a fairly small theme park. There are going to be some new attractions this year but the weather has held up the completion of these new attractions. The best ride I went on was wipe-out. My children enjoyed the enigma. In the afternoon we went to the show put on by Sean Alexander an illusionist and he was brilliant.
