“Fantastic for the family”
Reviewed October 10, 2011

We have a 2 year old boy and 3 year old girl, so a trip to Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park seemed an obvious attraction to visit. And we were very very happy with the decision - it was very high quality and the rides were perfect for Peppa Pig fans! It was clean, the queues were a bit tedious for our two, but we managed.

The rest of Paultons Park also holds a load of things to see and do - the dinosaurs were a favourite for Max. Once our kids grow a few more centimetres they will have access to more rides, but there was stlil loads to keep them happy. It was easily a place we could visit a second day as we just didn't have enough time to do everything on offer, and we are already thinking about going again and staying overnight. The entry fee is quite high for a family on a budget, but you do have access to a lot once you are in. In summary - excellent.

“amazing”
Reviewed October 7, 2011

my husband and i took our 18month old daughter today. we got into the park very quickly and headed to straight to peppa pig world as did everyone else. the queues wernt massive but we were waiting about 10/15mins a ride, and my daughter only being 18months and excited didnt understand having to wait. instead we headed over the other side where there is also plenty to do for young children and spent the morning over there as it was empty and there was not a queue in sight. after lunch we went back to peppa pig world and it was much quieter and we got on most the rides straight away. the highlight of the day had to be when peppa and george came out and had the time to give my daughter a cuddle and pose for photos. cant wait to go back again soon

“Cracking Theme Park For Younger Ones”
Reviewed October 7, 2011

Got a two day family pass as a treat for our 5 year old who loves Peppa Pig. The park is very geared up for the younger crowd with the rides not as extreme as other theme parks. Peppa Pig Land got very busy and queuing times dragged on a little especially for impatient young ones. Best to arrive before park opens, get to the front of the queue and do the rides in Peppa Pig section of the park first.
The rest of the park is very good with areas to paddle in so ensure your kids have their bathing suits.
Food and drink a bit expensive, best take a picnic.

Will be returning next year and doing the two day / Meon Valley Hotel package.

“Simply fantastic!!”
Reviewed October 6, 2011

Anyone who moans about Peppa Pig World must be able to moan about anything!
It was simply fabulous day! My little boy is three in December and he had a whale of a time! The rides look so good and are perfect for kids. My son loved Daddy Pigs Car ride - we went on 5 times! It got busy around midday but still very minimal wait. I honestly cannot fault the park - so clean and just brilliant for kids. Can't wait to go back. Can't rate it enough!

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed October 5, 2011

My girls are 7 & 11 plus one friend of 10, so Pepper Pig was not on the priority list. My youngest is an adrenalin junkie and she had her fix on the cobra and the edge twice over being only 7 i was dragged on as well "Things we do for our kids".. My other daughter prefers the log flume though fairly short still gets you wet and the last drop is still quite steep. Good size park and there are many other rides as well. My eldest for some reason loves the astro swing. "Takes all sorts".
When we left the larger rides we did have something to eat. Although not Micheline star by any stretch of the imagination you did get a good helping of chips per portion from the booth by the cobra.
Other rides are tamer and would suit the younger kids and to be honest my eldest likes them that way.
The park is clean and does not show any sign of wear unlike some of the larger parks i have been to this year.
You do not have to pay to park either. And there is enough to do to last all day so you won't be leaving early.
Yes we made it to Pepper Pig Land and it was heaving. At 2.00pm the sun was at its hottest and in fact it was very uncomfortable queing. It would however be excellent for younger children, and may be on our return we will go there first as the dinosour ride looks a laugh to say the least.
