“Come on kids, there’s lots to see and do. Your adventure is just beginning!”

Bet you’ve never heard a goat yodel or a potato talk, but you will at Sundown Market, and with your help all the animals in the musical pet shop will join in the chorus of their very own song. Explore the Rodeo Corral Indoor Play Area and climb aboard the Rocky Mountain Railroad, but hold onto your hats folks, those pesky bandits are popping up everywhere.

Be careful not to wake the dragon as you enter the Lollipoppet castle with all its smells of candy. Then its on to the Tractor Ride for a trip around the countryside before talking to the animals on our Animated Farm. Grab those bows and arrows and climb aboard the Robin Hood Ride to join Robin and his merry men as they travel through Sherwood Forest. Then its onto Crash Landings – our fantastic four storey indoor play area and cafe, climb and explore the jungle where you may get a surprise from a cheeky monkey or a slippery snake.

Run, swing and play in our bright and colourful Angry Birds Activity Park. Take a spin on the Okie Yolkie ride and bounce along on the Giddy Piggies ride. Don’t Forget to sing and dance along with the Monkeys at Monkey Mischief.

Ahoy there! Time to take to the Jolly Pirate Ride – but you better watch out, for who knows were those wicked pirates are lying in wait with a surprise or two! Don’t forget your buckets and spades – you’ll need them in Captain Sandy’s Play Cove.

But no one can be scared of the delightful little friends whose lovely scenes lead us through the seasons on to the magical Sleigh Ride through Santa’s traditional winter wonderland, hey, what's that reindeer doing in bed?! when your ready for a break, take the kids for a snack or a treat in one of our cafes or shops where there are lots of goodies available.

Also don’t forget, we’re open at Christmas, so come along and ride our fantastic night before Christmas ride before visiting Santa in his Lovely home and receive a free gift for all children aged 2 to 10 years .

Great introduction to a theme park

We chose to go on a mixed weather day in March and we're really quiet impressed. There was plenty for our children to do (aged 6 and 2) and the great thing was that most of the... read more

Took the children for a family day out. The children had a lovely day and I really enjoyed that I could fit on to a lot of the play equipment and join in with the kids. Some of the equipment is a bit jaded and dated and in parts a bit basic. Lots of old fashioned animatronics, so if that's... More

We chose to go on a mixed weather day in March and we're really quiet impressed. There was plenty for our children to do (aged 6 and 2) and the great thing was that most of the activities are still doable if the weather did change for the worst. Like anywhere if you rush around the park you will be... More

Went here on a damp Sunday (which meant it was very quiet) with my wife, 30 month old and 8 month old. It cost us £45 to enter which I felt was really expensive. £15 each with our 8 month free. The park is cleverly built like a village and Wild West. There's lots of houses to explore and children's... More

We visited today and it rained the whole day we were there but that didn't dampen out spirits , granted the children couldn't play in the out door play areas but we still had a fab day, we still went on most of the rides and had lots of fun in the indoor play areas. A great day had by... More

Visited this place today with our 15 month old. Whilst she enjoyed pottering about, she was a bit young to appreciate most things but was a really nice place and we will definitely go back. Some people have said that the place needs some attention. I'd say it had good character and there's were lots of staff about painting and... More

As usual, great day out with our 2 year old. Weather wasn't great which just meant we spend more time at the indoor play areas and our little one could run wild! Looking forward to heading back in the summer!

Brilliant, best day had with the family in a long time. Only thing I would say is its expensive but well worth it. The kids are looking forward to going back already

We have visited here a few times with young children aged between 2-7yro and always enjoyed it but today was different.. We arrived at 11am and there was hardly any of the rides open and zero entertainment- no characters about like usual etc and the large indoor play area was closed also. Whilst we appreciate it was a cold day... More

We decided to take our toddler to Sundown for the day. He is 2 years 8 months. He had a great time!! He was thoroughly captivated all day. Seeing him enjoy himself all day made our day too. However as some reviews have said, some parts of the park are a bit run down, but they are played with daily... More

Visited with children ranging from ages 2-8. Everyone had a great day out, it was nice that all the children could go on everything together with no height restrictions. This was a full day out, we didn't get chance to explore all areas with the park closing at 4pm, we couldn't understand why it wasn't open until 5pm as the... More
