  • Small amusement park very nice for the big and the small, the Park offers some sensational attractions for adults and a universe for the little ones. It is possible to come out of the Park to buy food outside.

  • It’s a great place to have fun with kids. I think it should be less expensive when you go with family. There is another important thing I’ve noticed last night event that there are no toilet facilities outside the booking counter especially when you host late night events and lot of queues are expected. Luckily my niece saved by one of their staff member. Bottom line great expensive place with nice staff.
  • Great place to spend the whole day. Lots of fun. A mixture of the older iconic rides and newer thrill rides. Also a large arcade. A variety of things to do for all ages. Great that there is separate parts of the park for the under 7's (kids kingdom) and the main park for everybody, gives you a choice as to what you want to do and what you want to pay for. Lots of places to get food, unfortunately no halal or kosher options but still a great day out.
  • It's definitely getting better but oh my life, it's very very pricey. The stratosphere ride is hands down the best thrill ride there. Lines are long on the whole and the rides are quite short. In saying this though, it's always a bit of fun. Parking is plentiful and you aren't forced to eat hotdogs, ice creams, chips etc. if you don't want to. Rainbows End also bend over backwards for you if you would like to hold a corporate event there. They have a wonderful and flexible event team.
  • This is a lot of fun for older children over all there is a lot of walk-in between each ride and a huge line to wait in.. we were there all day and spent 80% of the time waiting in lines. Food options are all unhealthy so I suggest to take some healthy snacks along with you, seating is good and the customer team has always been fun and good. The kids area is great if that’s the only place you go to because everything is there in one small space for the young ones. The major let down is the lines and space between each ride
  • We had a really good time. I hadn't been for about ten years and didn't have great memories of the place. This time it was full, and the facilities have been notably improved. Some of the rides haven't changed, some are new, they are mostly exciting. The food is much better and is verging on good. It is not cheap, though it is also not a blatant rip-off. Entry fee was reasonable. The one downside was that it shut on the dot of 5pm. It's best to get there early to get around all the rides. Take water on a hot day.
