Super friendly staff, fun train rides, interesting back story, trampolines, boating lake and various activities to explore with your little ones. Set in quite a big nature friendly surroundings that are nice to explore for the adults too! It’s not super gloss mega corporation Disneyland but I think that’s a good thing! Had a lovely day thank you

Brilliant family day out with the kids. Arrived for the first (10:35) train from the car park, and left the park on the last (4:20pm) train back to the car park. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and the kids had a great time. It's very hard to put Lappa Valley in a "box" to define what it is - it isn't a theme park, and it would be wrong to describe is as just a minature railway. The day was very full, and amazingly good fun! The kids had a great time playing crazy golf, trampolining, using the swan pedalos, the extensive playground (including the diggers in the sand-pit!), not to mention riding on the different gauge trains! The whole place had a carnival atmosphere, with more fairground organs than I've ever seen gathered in one place before! For the grown up (ie, me!), aside from the interesting trains, there was a fantastic nature trail, plus some fascinating history about the chimney and the remains of the mine shaft and engine house which are on the site. For what is included on the site, I thought the price was quite reasonable. Now the kids are talking incessantly about going back!

I'm not sure if they're here everyday but today they had these ancient wind up musical things and the sound off them was horrible and way too loud. I left earlier than planned with the worst headache ever as a result. The park itself is dilapidated and run down. The train ride was fantastic so for kids that like trains, they will love it but the rest of the park is in need of some serious TLC. Rotton Wood everywhere. Paint peeled off everything. It's how you imagine a theme park from your nightmares to be. There's are far more interesting and cleaner places to visit in Cornwall.
