  • Is a good attraction for young children. Is entertaining and educational as well. Staff are friendly and engaging. However queue waits are unacceptably long for some rides. I feel better use of single rider queues, fast tract queues, ride time slots could all be used to lower waiting times. I feel there is possibly a lack of investment and ideas to lower queue times and some rides need updating. Some of the smaller kids rides could be duplicated to avoid long queues. More small rides. More designated smoking areas . More healthy snacks available for example selling of apples fruit etc along with typical popcorn and similar unhealthy options do choice is there.
  • Cannot fault this place. The staff were very enthusiastic & full of energy. My childhood consisted of being here and it’s such a perfect day out. Rides are amazing, not too scary which is a plus for me in my opinion. Would love to go again!!
  • Totally ruined my daughter reaching the magic 1m 40cm height. Hence grown up rides. They would not let her ride Rattlesnake with her daddy. As different body shapes. He is of average build. No signage to state thus. Really sad. Made me want to cut up our Premium annual passes. As not cheap, I didn't!
  • Good few days but ride wise the park is largely style over substance. Needs a few more modern decent family coasters. Typical Merlin under investing in attractions and investing in hotels and other money makers. Best thing to do for cash extraction but not for the park.
  • Definitely worth purchasing a Fast track pass. A fantastic fun day out for my daughter's 12th birthday. We were able to bypass the queues and thus have lots of rides. We did the Giraffe Safari experience which was wonderful. Our guide, James was very knowledgeable and helpful. The staff are great!
