    Took my children aged 6 and 4 and they enjoyed the outdoor play areas which were very good. But the rides were boring even for my 4 year old (they could have gone on everything again but refused for t...  more »

    We visited Sundown with my 3 and 5 year olds whilst on holiday near Leeds. All I can say is that if you have young children this place is a must see. From the attention to detail in the wild West town...  more »

    Very child friendly park with much to do for ages 2 to 10. Nice rides, great play areas. Not crowded either. Well worth a visit.  more »

  • We took our 3 and 6 year olds and they did enjoy our visit. The place is a little strange. There are a number of different themed areas, like little villages that can be explored with automated games in some of them, (some that could do with a bit of maintenance). In my opinion these areas would benefit from some real entertainers to bring them to life as mostly they are little houses with nothing in them. There are rides in 3 of these areas which the kids enjoyed. There are a number of outdoor play areas one with a tea cup waltzer ride and a flying pig ride. On the whole a good day (5 hours) the kids enjoyed it and liked all the rides especially the flying pigs!
  • We adored this place, we went with my four year old and my friends very recently turned three year old. They could go on all the rides, play in all areas of the soft play and it was very reasonably priced. It's advertised as aiming at 3-10 but I think above 8 you might be pushing it slightly, particularly if they're adventurous.
  • Brilliant, British and bonkers. A delightfully eccentric experience that delights adults and children. Loads to do, fun rides, cowboy land, fairy tale land, sweetie land and loads more Make sure you catch the cowboy show. Imagine The League of Gentlemen for kids. Been three times now and w always stay for 5 or 6 hours. Do the Xmas ride in summer. Best theme park I've ever been to.
  • Brilliant place to take little ones. Loads for them to see and explore. Well organised with stagger ride opening times to have virtually no queues. Highly recommended!
  • Love this place. Been going for years since I was little and now enjoy taking my niece and nephew. Now super excited to be taking my own little boy for his 2st experience literally cannot wsit. Love every visit xx
