  • We had a great family day out. All rides were working, queues were minimal and staff were helpful. The place looks smart and well-maintained. A must-do for families visiting Auckland.  more »
  • Twice the price it should be with the number and quality of rides they have- especially midweek. Needs better food options. Great staff  more »
  • Children were so happy, they enjoyed almost everything in the park, a must visit in Auckland. We went for a birthday party, definitely will visit again in future.  more »

  • I went there alone in mid-week, no long queue …clear time table. It's small but also good for solo adventures. And I met a lovely dad and teenage daughter, we played the roller coaster together and a couple of others.
  • Totally not worth the extortionate entry fee. If you can get a sale ticket it's pretty decent. Would be great if they offered annual passes.
  • Sadly needs some newer bigger rides. However entertainment is good in weekends. Food expensive.. bring your own if you can 😀. Good day out especially if you grab a deal ticket.
  • Expensive if you are only planning a short visit, but took the kids for their birthday. We ended up staying for even odd hours, so that took the sting out of it. Limited adult rides and sometimes long queues but the kids had a great time. A word of warning, the main park will be wasted on kids under 120cm tall.
  • NEXT TIME CAN YOU PLEASE ADVERTISE IF SOME OF THE RIDES ARE GONNA BE UNDER " MATAINENCE" SEEING AS PEOPLE PAY A LOT OF MONEY TO COME THROUGH. NOT TO HAPPY WITH THE SERVICE. AND NOT TO MENTION THE 3 GUYS WHO PERFORMED WHERE THE KIDS KINGDOM PART IS ON THAT STAGE . IT' WAS LIKE WATCHING A DAM STRIP SHOW . NOT COOL ESPECIALLY WHEN THERE'S SMALL KIDS RUNNING AROUND 😠
