  • Brilliant day out today at Adventure Valley. So much for the kids to do. I took a 1 yr old, a 7 yr and a 9 yr old, and they all had plenty to do for the entire day. No queues to stand in and the attractions are spread out nicely so we were never among crowds. Fully recommend for a full fun day out. Kids will sleep very well tonight!
  • A decent enough place, and plenty to do for children ... as long as you have enough money to throw around. It's expensive enough just to enter - particularly having to pay full price for an infant just over two years old - but there is then so much EXTRA to pay for inside that kids WILL want to have a go at - pony rides etc ... and you can hardly take kids to a place like this and spend the day saying 'no' to them ... does not really improve their experience, particularly as mosty of the paid extras are nothing special (or pricey to provide), but attract kids like magnets. We were lucky enough to take a picnic (which I would recommend) - there were several people there complaining quite loudly about the (lack of) quality, and prices, of food available on-site, and even without trying the food, I could see their point - it IS expensive and looked far from appetising. One of the main negatives for me was that I'm registered disabled; there was a (very) small reduction offered on my ticket, but we had to pay for my carer to enter - something we have NEVER experienced anywhere else - and even then, the small discount they offered on a carers ticket was only available if THEY were carrying proof of receiopt of a carers allowance ... complete rip off in my opinion, and something that ALL disabled people should be aware of, as many, like I did' will expect the courtesy of a free carers admission, as is routinely available elsewhere. SO: a disabled parent with carer, a little boy and a toddler just over 2 years old cost almost £40 just to walk through the entrance - I'll let you tot up what the actual total spent over the day was ... nearly choked when I added it all up!
  • Once you get over the entry price 2 kids 1 adult £29 . We timed it right 23 degrees lots to do . Tip .take a picnic. I seem to have paid in to just walk around taking photos & carry the bags coul'dn't participate with the kids because of the bags .. recommended though good day out .bus takes you to Franklin prison next door then a 300 yard walk up the lane (be were no pathway)buses run every hour to go back to Durham bus station.
  • Great, but i hurt my foot there, so be careful on the pillows
  • Lots do to but some things you have to pay for loved the runaway races
