Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic dry slope for either learning to skiing or brushing up on skills. Love spending time here either skiing or bringing my little ones for lessons. More people need to come along and support this wonderful place.

My daughter has been to various fun days, birthday parties and snow tubing sessions here over this last while.

The fun days are always very well organised with a good mix of activities. The staff are great and the kids have a good time for a very reasonable price.

Birthday parties are great here. There are rooms set aside away from the general hussle. The kids get a good whole at snow tubing and then the have some food. The food is basic, but it is more than OK for a kids party.

Snow tubing privately is also a good activity. My child enjoys a wee trip there.

Had a great day of snowboard on Sunday.
The instructors were really good. Very patient and gave clear instructions.
I couldn't stop smiling the whole day!
The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of the food included. It was really bad. I'd rather pay for better quality food rather than cheap burgers. The staff were kind and helpful so no criticism of them.

Snow tubing fun! Excellent family day for 6 cousins aged 5-12. Staff extremely helpful and should be commended. The tubes were sanitised before we got them. The kids had lots of turns in the allotted time. They enjoyed the water spray on a hot day and the music added to the atmosphere. Have already recommended to other friends about a return trip and we live over an hour away so worth the drive.

Par 3 course- terrible distance measurements on each hole. Not even one of the nine is correct. Whoever measured it must have been drunk. One hole is 50 yards out, one is 40 out, and the rest are around 10 to 15 out.
I paid £13 for the 9 holes at weekend. Its not worth more than £5.

Grandchild’s birthday party Ski slope looked such fun. Let down badly by party rooms which are tired and very unimpressive. Party food dead on but you are rushed it to let next party in.

Learn to Ski (6.5 hr day)
We booked this as the ski school said a dry slope is really the only way to learn the basics. They said the indoor moving floor option doesn't prepare you well enough for the slopes. We're about to head off for a weeks skiing but we haven't skied in 29 years. Although I feel it's quite expensive at £80, I would still highly recommend it. The tuition was excellent and the instructors worked well with anyone who was having difficulty, giving them plenty of extra attention. It was really good fun.
Lunch was basic but you're not there for a fine dining experience - you're there to learn to ski. Soup was tasty & warm and sandwiches had been freshly made. Younger students seemed to opt for chicken burger and chips option. So, we absolutely got what we went for and we're now ready to go and feeling pretty confident. Easier said and done mind you.

We went as a group for a learn to ski session with the fabulous instructor Stuart. Stuart was great and made the day fun and informative.
All the staff we encountered were lovely.

Highly recommended for anyone wanting to get an insight into skiing and get ahead before taking a ski holiday.

Thank you!

My first 1* rating of any local activity.

Silverwood/Craigavon Par 3 course has two main issues:

Firstly, course length and hole size. The 15 hole course could be vastly improved to be an 18 hole course, as many of the holes are rated far outside an attainable Par 3. It would be wrong to assume that some holes were anything short of Par 4 with a good driver off the tee.

Secondly, and MOST importantly, course quality - disgraceful. The £10 green fees would cover a full student rate 18 hole round at a professional local course such as Portadown or Tandragee. Instead, here, you can look forward to literally being ankles deep in mud (drainage is shocking) and playing on ground which is divited, covered in animal faeces and waterlogged. The teeboxes and hole numbers are literally made from cement-filled 500ml Coca-Cola bottles. The greens feature colossal, sand-bound rabbit burrows. The fairways are little better, with randomly placed "trenches."

I'm not sure there could be any less effort put in to the upkeep of this "course." I would struggle to recommend this activity at all, neither for value or enjoyment. Spend your money supporting a local golf club or minigolf course!

Really rude member of staff (male) on the dry ski slopes to my young son. Told him he was a rubbish skier with no technique. Spent the evening shouting at all the kids.

What a guy!!

Whoever runs this place maybe needs to look at the people they employ. Let’s face it it’s a bit of a run down archaic dump.
