Enjoyed a lovely day out here. Something for everyone but probably most suited to younger children. Good value for money.

Save up all your 2p's and spend them here! Lovely place. We go twice every holiday. Not expensive to get in and there are plenty of fliers with money off the entrance fee. It is aimed more at the under 10's however we had kids...More

You will be able to take him on some of the gentle rides, plus there is Gnomeland, various animated displays, a water show, singing dog band and lots of buttons to press. Hopefully you will all have a great day.
