Decided at the last minute to take our 4 year old here. Generally we avoid places like this during school holidays as it's my idea of hell. However a visit outside of these times is always enjoyable Lots of slides and little park areas to play on as well as the usual type of animals to feed and look at.... More

My kids are 5, (almost) 3 and 8 months old and every Friday and Saturday night, without fail, my 5 year old little girl asks me the same question: "Daddy... where are we going in the morning?" After trying an abundance of places and locations, farms, soft plays, adventure plays etc... today, we ventured 20 minutes from home to Adventure... More

Have been here before but this time was for a kids party. The party host was great with the kids. Had the run of the park after the party which was great. The only drawback was that if both parents take the child guest to a party, one parent needs to pay which is about £10. I don't think this... More

We arrived around 10am with two little children and really enjoyed our stay. The park is extensive and allows the children to run around. Good value for money (compared to other similar places) and the children were asleep in the car before we got to the M1..a good sign. Weather needs to be good as the majority is outside (there...

My husband and I took our children on Monday (bank holiday). I thought from the website that we would be paying £7.95 per person but when we got there we were actually charged £10.25 each. Seeing as it is quite pricey to get in it is quite disappointing that you still have to pay for some rides when you get... More

Thank you for leaving us a review, we are pleased to hear that the kids had a great time but sorry if there was any confusion over our prices. As bank holiday Monday was a school holiday, we charged school holiday prices. Our weekday prices are for during term time only, which it does mention on our website but we're... More

We visited with nephew and niece and 3 children age 2, 5 and 6. Ideal for everyone! They loved feeding the animals and the ride in the trailer being towed by tractor. Enjoyed bouncy rides and go karts etc. I think older children (over 12's) would not enjoy it so much. Long queues for food and drink though

The kids loved it and there was plenty to do for the grown ups as well. Best suited for a summer day do that you can explore all the activities. Some attractions require paying extra for but these are more of an extra rather than an essential

On a sunny day this will be a great place to take your children or grand children. Raining when we were there. Plenty to do, feeding animals tractor rides etc the sort of stuff you would expect at a place like this. The is decent eating at a fair price. well worth a visit
