There are activities for children of all ages and it is easy to keep an eye on the little ones. There is a snack bar where drinks and snacks can be bought. It's a good value for money trip out for the childfren.

We like go bananas for a rainy day thing with the kids but honestly see those yellow chairs in the pictures? Most uncomfortable things ever! The place could be cleaner however I know they have a lot of people in and out everyday.
