“Brilliant except for wildwoods restaurant”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

Really enjoyed our visit to Paultons Park. Would really recommend it. It is very expensive but these 2 days were our summer holiday so we splashed out. My only complaints are: purchased my tickets in advance and when we arrived realised my daughter would have got in free. Could have kicked myself! ! The food in the kiosks was 100% however the food in wildwoods was horrible. They got both our breakfast and lunch wrong. But refused to change the food or refund us. Basically called me a liar. so this is why I'm not giving it full marks.

Dear Rosiebaggins, thank you for taking the time to review us. We are pleased to hear that you really enjoyed your visit at the Park.

Although refunds are not available if you purchase tickets without measuring your child, as a gesture of goodwill we do offer a web replacement ticket that can be used on another day in the future for any guest. This is a ticket which permits entry until the end of the season.

We are sorry that you were not happy with the experience at the Wildwoods restaurant. We have received many positive comments about the quality and range from other guests. If on occasion a mistake is made when serving food we are happy to rectify this at the time. Therefore we will ask that you contact us so we can investigate this further for you.

We very much look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

“Not to be missed if you have younger children!”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

Booked online months ago for our daughters 3rd birthday. We got there early and were amongst the first to enter.... Their faces lit up.. we spent the whole day just in Peppa Pig World. Staff were fantastic, grounds spotless, places to relax, rides fantastic, Toilet facilities - Exceptional - Overall "A GREAT DAY OUT !!"

I was disappointed that there was no photo opportunity with Peppa & George, I would have paid money for this. Instead of trying to get a photo when there was other very excited parents & children trying to get close.

Don't be disheartened with this as like I said a great day out for all ages.

Dear Ian A, thank you for your comments and feedback. We are delighted to hear that you had a great day out at the Park for your daughter’s birthday.

Peppa and George appear outside the school house at several times throughout the day. Appearances later in the afternoons tend to be quieter and we advise guests to arrive at the timed sessions early if they would like to be at the front. Peppa’s Early Play Pass dates are also available on selected dates throughout the year that permit early entry to the Park and a personal meeting & photographs with Peppa and George.

We very much look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

“Awesome! But small”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Went here with 2yo and 4yo week before Whitsun and had a really wonderful day!

The whole park is immaculate. Clean, very well maintained with beautiful bits of garden dotted around. And the Peppa Pig bit is really, REALLY well done. I'm talking Disney level of attention to detail. Great quality to everything, clearly a lot of thought and expense goes in to this park.

All of the rides are suitable for preschoolers, our favourite being the Dine-Saw ride.

However, it is worth noting that this is a SMALL corner of a moderately sized family theme park. It is NOT a huge attraction. Having said that, with two slow little ones, there was enough to amuse us in just the Peppa Pig section for a few hours before the children exhausted themselves out.

Because it is quite small, you need to choose your visit timings carefully. We were there for a term-time weekday and at one point we were queuing for 20mins for a ride. And we couldn't get in to the soft play.

I would categorically not visit Peppa Pig world on either a weekend or during the school holidays. And I would even opt for the beginning or end of the season. In fact, the best time we had all day was when it was torrential rain and whilst everyone else hid, we put on our waterproofs and enjoyed empty rides!

We'll definitely be back when the kids are older and can enjoy the whole park.

Dear katie186342, thank you for your review and feedback. We are happy to hear that you and your family had a wonderful day at the Park.

It is lovely to read George's Dinosaur ride was your favourite.

Peppa Pig World is usually quieter either first thing upon arrival or later in the afternoons. However there are also attractions with no waiting like the outdoor adventure playgrounds, muddy puddles water splash park and seeing Peppa Pig and George.

We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

“A great family day out!”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

We had a great day at Paultons Park! My little sister absolutely loved Peppa Pig World, and it was really well done. The other rides were great, too, and the staff throughout the park were all very friendly. If you are attending with somebody who had special needs, make sure you get the queue assist pass. This allowed to go to the front of the queue for each ride, which made things a lot easier.
