I went last weekend and was becoming sick to death of hearing the adventure island staff swearing as they were walking around the park. Even the team leaders were swearing. They need to control this, I understand they are teenagers however this can't be aloud....More

Great for families. Ideally children over four, I’d say (for the rides - depending on height). Plenty of fun to be had. Prizes to be won, ride to go on, soft play, crazy golf and restaurants. Great day out.

A terrific range of rides for all ages and levels of courage. Shame about the surly teenage staff throughout, but a costly way to keep children occupied so don't expect cheap.

We came here while visiting the area with our twin girls who are 9. We bought wrist bands for my husband and 2 girls as I thought it was a bit too expensive for all of us to have a go. I took photos instead!!...More

We're season ticket holders and people laugh when I tell them I prefer it to DisneyLand, but I do! Rarely crowded and the staff are so cute and enthusiastic.

£30 for a full wristband? Over the top. I got there at 11.30 on a Saturday morning: cafe closed, only a stall selling coffee (at inflated prices). My advice would be go to a real theme park.
