  • Food very poor. Facilities also dirty and smelly. Staff young and obviously do not want to be there. Most things out of order. Only saving grace is that my child is too young to care about all of that...  more »

  • I have been many times and have never reviewed. So here goes. If it’s sunny, go here as it has some brilliant outdoor rides and things to do. If it’s hot, go here as it has a splash zone which the kid...  more »

  • We are annual members and to cut a long story short, our kids have been bought up in Wheelgate. We're lucky enough to live nearby so the annual pass is a God Send. They never seem to run out of energy and put incredible effort into making the park interesting, varying all the festivals in the year. It's a really well run park and lots of rides and attractions all year round.
  • A very enjoyable day out at this family attraction. Money seems to have been spent on the various rides and attractions but the facilities have been forgotten. The toilets near the main entrance in particular. The sit on train around the park is also the slowest I have ever been on (and I've been on a few!). But otherwise very good and well worth a visit.
  • My 6 year old loved this park even though it chucked it down for most of the day. The outdoor swim area was fantastic. Rides and activities kept her occupied all day. Indor and outdoor play areas. Whats not to like.
  • Great place for kids. Lots of rides and attractions to entertain children. I would say because of the somewhat overdramatic height restrictions it's best left for children 3 plus. As smaller children cannot do a great deal bar from carousel and soft play even when with an adult. A good mix of indoor and outdoor attractions but to get the most out of it you need a relatively dry day unless you don't mind wet bottoms. Does get very busy in the school holidays from opening (10am) and quietens down later in the day. Worst part of the park is the bathroom facilities which are well below par, dated and unclean although some are better than others. All in all great for a big day out with kids aged 3-11.
  • Really need a whole day to get round this place wevhad 4 hours so did not get round. If weather had been better felt sure most of ours would have spent more time in the water area that we gave a miss. Booking very efficient and staff polite. Some of the rides under reconstruction.
