Had a very festive and fantastic day today with my daughter and grandchildren. So much to see and do. The staff were very friendly and full of Christmas cheer 😊 they enjoyed finding all the gingerbread men hidden around the park and receiving their free gift for finding them all. The rides and all the animals made the day even more enjoyable. A trip to the Post office to see the elves and being told they were on the nice list made their day 🤗 and to finish off a perfect day a chat with santa and his elve before we left. Can't wait to go back in the summer 👍

This is the second year in a row I’ve gone to the Christmas Journey event and it wasn’t as good as last year. The tickets are the same price but last year there was an amazing circus and the kids got lots of freebies. Instead of the circus, which had professional acts and a proper tent, there was a Christmas show which didn’t live up to the circus and was a bit naff. There are also less Christmas attractions this year. The Christmas retheming of the existing rides was a bit half-arsed compared to last year. The food had the same problems they had last year with advertising vegan food but once again not actually having any. I had a good day seeing my niece have fun but I feel like going another time of year would be just as good and cheaper. My niece enjoyed it and it’s a nice day out for toddlers but it didn’t feel as good value compared to last year.

Hi We are sorry to read this review. We had to review the Circus for 2021 as we were unsure weather we were able to open or not. The prices were heavily reduced because of this v's 2020s event. All of the theming was the same and uplifted in some cases and we had a new ride called the Santa's Sleigh ride in place of the Chilly Willy. We are sorry that you did not see the Xmas event as good value but do hope that we will see you again in the future. Best wishes OMD

Another lovely day at OMD for ‘A Christmas Journey’. Thanks to all the staff for always being so friendly and polite especially as it was a bit of a rainy day and still the staff stayed postive. A special thanks to the young man on the tractor ride. There was loads to do, really good value for money and lots of activities to do. Christmas show was great and everyone enjoyed themselves. Many thanks 😀

Another fantastic visit to Old MacDonalds Farm, the kids didn’t stop exploring! Climbed the spider tower, played chase around the maze, enjoyed the reindeer ride and the crazy barn ride. They got to meet Father Christmas and elves and some festive dinosaurs who all really made our visit! They were so friendly and spoke so attentively to the kids 🧡💜💙
We also loved seeing the wallabies and the biggest bunnies we’ve ever seen!

We have just got home from such an amazing day at the Christmas event. They made such a great effort to make it special for children with Santa and elves walking around, Christmas shows, a great gingerbread trail, as well as a chat with the chief Elf at Santa's post office. As well as the usual great rides, there were a few additional Christmas rides too that the kids loved - favourite rides being the Santa sleigh ride and the Christmas train. With two one year olds and a four year old in tow, there was so much for them all to enjoy. They loved seeing the animals throughout the park and also enjoyed the playground and softplay areas (they will sleep well tonight!) We had a full day of fun and I highly recommended it to other families. We are now looking forward to our next visit in the new year!

Lovely day out with my Grandkids. Christmas show was so sweet to watch and the kids loved it. Lots to keep the kids entertained and happy. They really enjoyed seeing Santa roaming around and also the dinosaurs. Lovely little coffee stall to keep you warm walking round.Very happy with my visit today and will be back in the new year. 😄

We had a fabulous day here!
The attention to detail to make everything Christmassy is excellent. It wasn’t my first visit here but this was beyond my expectations with the roaming Santa, Christmas shows and seasonal themes throughout.
The various rides and animals spread out across the park kept us entertained for 6 hours with two little people under 2.
A special mention to the friendly Elves, Jolly Father Christmas and Patrick the Polar Bear who we saw several times throughout the day just wandering about greeting everyone!
Don’t miss the Gingerbread trail and Santa’s post office - there are surprises awaiting little ones.
There are plenty of things to do for toddlers to 12ish year olds and adults too!
Great place usually but all the more special with all of the effort made to make it magical for kids at this time of year.

We decided to book to go to old McDonald’s farm for our little girls 4th birthday and we wasn’t disappointed. Apart from the weather which no one can control and they were really good and said if we wanted to come another day we could change it. But we had travelled nearly 2 hours and the weather was clearing up. A few of her friends came along too and we all enjoyed the animals/ rides and pumpkin patch. It was really good fun for everyone that came young and old. And we spent most of the day there. We definitely would go back next year for another day out. And they are always putting on fun events for the children and have character days which sound really good.
