“Come on kids, there’s lots to see and do. Your adventure is just beginning!”

Bet you’ve never heard a goat yodel or a potato talk, but you will at Sundown Market, and with your help all the animals in the musical pet shop will join in the chorus of their very own song. Explore the Rodeo Corral Indoor Play Area and climb aboard the Rocky Mountain Railroad, but hold onto your hats folks, those pesky bandits are popping up everywhere.

Be careful not to wake the dragon as you enter the Lollipoppet castle with all its smells of candy. Then its on to the Tractor Ride for a trip around the countryside before talking to the animals on our Animated Farm. Grab those bows and arrows and climb aboard the Robin Hood Ride to join Robin and his merry men as they travel through Sherwood Forest. Then its onto Crash Landings – our fantastic four storey indoor play area and cafe, climb and explore the jungle where you may get a surprise from a cheeky monkey or a slippery snake.

Run, swing and play in our bright and colourful Angry Birds Activity Park. Take a spin on the Okie Yolkie ride and bounce along on the Giddy Piggies ride. Don’t Forget to sing and dance along with the Monkeys at Monkey Mischief.

Ahoy there! Time to take to the Jolly Pirate Ride – but you better watch out, for who knows were those wicked pirates are lying in wait with a surprise or two! Don’t forget your buckets and spades – you’ll need them in Captain Sandy’s Play Cove.

But no one can be scared of the delightful little friends whose lovely scenes lead us through the seasons on to the magical Sleigh Ride through Santa’s traditional winter wonderland, hey, what's that reindeer doing in bed?! when your ready for a break, take the kids for a snack or a treat in one of our cafes or shops where there are lots of goodies available.

Also don’t forget, we’re open at Christmas, so come along and ride our fantastic night before Christmas ride before visiting Santa in his Lovely home and receive a free gift for all children aged 2 to 10 years .

We have visited here a few times with young children aged between 2-7yro and always enjoyed it but today was different.. We arrived at 11am and there was hardly any of the rides open and zero entertainment- no characters about like usual etc and the large indoor play area was closed also. Whilst we appreciate it was a cold day... More

We decided to take our toddler to Sundown for the day. He is 2 years 8 months. He had a great time!! He was thoroughly captivated all day. Seeing him enjoy himself all day made our day too. However as some reviews have said, some parts of the park are a bit run down, but they are played with daily... More

Visited with children ranging from ages 2-8. Everyone had a great day out, it was nice that all the children could go on everything together with no height restrictions. This was a full day out, we didn't get chance to explore all areas with the park closing at 4pm, we couldn't understand why it wasn't open until 5pm as the... More

There is so much to do here, climbing, walking, eating and discovering new fun things to do. However if your kids are lazy and addicted to stupid technology that destroys their social abilities to have real interactive fun then leave them at home and get a life! It is for the outdoor activities and walking, playing on different theme areas... More

All day for the under 10's. Always had a wonderful time with the grandchildren from the time they were old enough to press buttons. Lots of interactive fun for children. Go at least 3 times a year and have done since 2010. The children love the rides and different indoor and outdoor play areas. The best place we have been... More

We absolutely love sundown, we go at least twice a year. The last time we went was a few days before Christmas and we paid for the girls to see Santa, money well spent! The whole Christmas experience was amazing from start to finish and the stalls were brilliant also. We keep coming back because it is excellent value for... More

Having had several friends recommend Sundown, I decided to give it a go with my two grandchildren (2 and 4). The 2 year old was free as she measures less than 90cm - otherwise cost on a "Quiet Day" was £15 per person. The day was chill but bright and sunny. I would not have wanted to go on a... More

This place is just magical. It is a bit like stepping back in time and entering some strange land heavily influence by Jim Henson characters, but this just adds to the weird and wonderful atmosphere. It gets very busy on school holidays understandably so if you can go in a quiet time that would be the best idea as it... More

We visited at the start of December for my sons 4th birthday! Despite the cold, foggy weather we all thoroughly enjoyed our day. There was plenty to see and do, the indoor soft play was great to warm up half way round. The Christmas ride felt so magical and my son got a lovely gift from Santa. All staff we... More
