  • Great to buy ginger and a ride on the train, but it was a theme park. There were lots of people there who obviously loved it.  more »
  • Heard a lot about this place so drove north especially to go. Has a great gift shop that includes lots of great but typical souvenirs. Free entry but anything else costs you money. There were more bou...  more »
  • The price for a family was great with activities ranging from train and boat rides to factory tour and the bee 'factory'. Good food and nice shop.  more »
  • Fun and educational. We went late in the afternoon so some things were understandably closing up. Went on Moreton the train which was good. You go around the whole location with an information voice over. They do also have a tour of the factory and honey bee sessions. I don't think the price is too unreasonable, $17 for an adult to go on the train and Overboard (fun little "it's a small world" style indoor boat ride) isn't that steep. Probably wouldn't make a whole day of it but definitely a good morning or afternoon activity.
  • Great with young children. For those on a budget you can walk around for free. We have little ones at the right age. Went on Mother's day for a little while. Staff are genuine and friendly. We didn't do everything but it was a nice for the morning. Grandparents and kids would be in their element.
  • It's an attempt to turn a product into a tourist attraction. If you have money spare and want somewhere to bring the grand-kids I'm sure it would be great. But we felt the price of the attractions (Factory tour, animatronic story, bee-hives, and mini-train) were too steep for 3 adults to randomly come across. "Ginger Town" was kitschy and touristy with general-store and import type products. If you like Ginger and just want some quality products, keep to the front store. If you like Ginger and want somewhere to take the kids for a day, then it's built for you.
  • Very touristy! Free entry, but then everything costs. Good just to wander through, but not really much to see!
  • Good place for the kids or somewhere to eat. Rides are aimed at very young children. Lots of ginger products to purchase.
