  • Our family, a 5 year old girl, 3 year old boy, enjoyed their time here. However, having paid just paid the £80 entry fee for a family of four, we came to coin operated diggers and pay as you go dodgems - £1 each please! Upstairs in the cafe area, Go Karts - a fiver please! Considering the entry fee, I thought this was a bit much. Admittedly we could have saved 15% on the entry fee if we had booked online in advance. Overall, the ride on digger experiences are fun, and it was an interesting a novel day out If you have a child who loves big machines, or you love big boys toys, you'll have a fantastic time here.
  • I for one was looking forward to it but not expecting anything earth shattering. Well, I have to say the kids and I enjoyed this more than Disneyland... Seriously. Not too big and surprisingly the rides offered different experiences. Also, and this was a big plus hardly my queues and those that were there were not very long. Would I go back, yes definitely, would I stay at the premier inn nearby , yes and then cinema and meal by the river. Oh nearly forgot. The food is good quality and reasonably priced.
  • Great day out for the kids and adults. Well worth a visit, not a full days activities, I arrived at 12pm, and left at 5pm, that was enough for me and the kids, however the day I went was not too busy, little or no queues so was a plus. If I had needed to queue for long periods like some other theme parks I would be seriously disappointed. Would recommend for both boys and girls, I have both, and they equally enjoyed the day, may not appeal to teenagers as many of the rides are better suited to younger children, in my opinion ideal age 5-12yrs old, they will be suitably entertained.
  • Great place. I wasn't expecting it to be that much fun but was pleasantly surprised. Oh yeah.... My son loved it too :)
  • Great day out with the kid. Current half term offer with pre booked tickets at half price definitely made the decision a lot easier to go.
