Visited santa pod for the annual Fire and Thunder event after enjoying it the previous year. Like the previous year it wax excellent and we had a great day. There is lots to see and do and the day goes really fast. The rides aren't cheap but they are quite unique so worth it. Some amazing sights for petrol heads... More

This was my first visit to Santa Pod and I was really looking forward to it. The activities leading up to the fire works were brilliant, Monster trucks, drifting, motor bike stunts etc...unfortunately it was a bitter cold day and we arrived when it opened so it was a very long wait for the fire works to start. The display... More

Four of us ( grandparents and young grandsons) went to see fireworks show. Support acts - stunt cars, monster truck and crazy biker - all very good. Fireworks ok but no real wow factor... then sat in car for over an hour going nowhere due to shambolic stewarding and car park organisation. Also incredibly dangerous allowing hundreds of cars to...

I have visited Santa Pod many times. This years firework frenzy was definitely not worth the 2 hour drive! The live action arena being at the opposite side this year meant we couldn't really see anything through the crowds, you got a much better view on the bank in previous years. Don't think I'll be bothering with it next year.... More

First time I've been to santa pod. Thought we would try the firework frenzy. Wasn't very impressed with the display. Took nearly two hours to get out of there. Such a shame as was really looking forward to it.

A star missing because of the unbelievably poor organisation of car parks. It took us over an hour to leave the venue. However the venue itself was good. Kids loved it. Lots to do but park as close to the exit as possible.

Awful awful awful! Awful experience a few years ago but thought we'd give it the benefit of the doubt and try again... never again!!! Terrible terrible firework event. Expensive stalls and rides, unable to see anything in the show arena due to crowds, very mediocre fireworks, extremely rude members of staff who quite clearly couldn't give a dam and then... More
