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.

    We had our daughter’s 12th birthday party at The Dorset Adventure Park. They all did the Muddy Trail and had the best time ever.

    We had the use of one of the enclosures over the duration which was all set up with balloons etc.

    I really couldn’t have asked for more. The staff were lovely, the food was great and all the children had the best time. To top it off we were presented with the most enormous personalised chocolate cake.

    It was definitely the best party we’ve had yet.

    Thank you all

    The place was amazing with all the different birds of prey to look at.
    My two children loved it especially with the show of the birds of prey flying around.
    The man doing the show was very good and quite funny aswell.
    He was very good getting my children ask question and interacting with them by making them laugh.
    At the end of the show they gave my two children a couple of feathers each from the birds from the show.
    Would definitely recommend going if you like birds of prey.

    We used the ringos with my eight year old daughter. She absolutely loved them they were so much fun! We had our young baby with us and they allowed for me and my husband to swap over so we can all have a go. The team were super friendly and very accommodating! 10/10 service and 10/10 experience recommended if you are interested it is such a fun experience! Wish I had got the name of the instructor who worked with us because he was fabulous!

    We travelled to the famous Durdle Door in April, left very early in morning to arrive so we were able to get good photos without many tourist. As I am a famous artist we deserved to have the beach to ourselves but many tourists appeared after 9am.

    We took many photos for my portfolio and my beautiful brasilien wife and handsome son accentuated the beauty of the cove in all my fabulous landscape portraits.

    Take comfortable trainers for the walk down the steps. I heard rumours that it is dangerous but we took my 2 year old son and he survived. Health and safety is not in our vocabulary in Brasil!

    I have been visiting Splashdown for over 20 years and love that my own children are now old enough to take. We nearly always have a fantastic time.
    However, three small things that I have noticed: there was no reduction in price or offer of a voucher for a future visit, despite the outside area being shut.
    In addition the showers for our last two visits have been freezing and barely working. Finally, the inflatable ride was not particularly well manned, they were far too many people being let down in one go, which caused concern, especially having a 6 year old with me.

    Had a generally good experience of family ski lessons. I think most instructors there seem great and I have to give special mention to our lesson with Simon that was excellent, we all came away more confident and happy after his lesson in particular, attentive with tailored tips and the right amount of challenge and finished on a high. I would say though that the experience depends very much on the instructor you get. We also came away disappointed with a couple of lessons with two other different instructors, who either didn’t seem that interested or had us doing drills that I didnt find helpful and were beyond me, which was a real shame and painful. I would go back but only to instructors I knew to be good for us.

    Really professional stables - friendly, clear instructions when required but otherwise just given space to connect with my lovely pony Dylan. He was a lovely type, responsive, very well schooled and forward but safe. It’s been a while since I cantered on a beach but he really looked after me (as did Kerry the guide) and I quickly remembered how much I loved it. Horses all looked relaxed and well cared for.

    Agent David was amazing! We’ve been to many escape rooms and this has to be one of the best. Our family managed to escape in 49 minutes! Will definitely be back for next one when it opens 😁

    This place is beyond amazing. All the staff and team riders are always helpful and are there when you need them. The atmosphere here just has a good vibe to it. All the other adults and young people are very kind and approachable! As an autistic teen myself, I genuinely find it hard to get confidence to enter. Like I said all the staff are very welcoming and really help the young people build their confidence up. This place has been an amazing place for me to interact with other peers my age, as I struggle with that.
    A massive thanks to the front! 🤩

    We took our grandson who had never been to speedway before and we all had an amazing evening. We even got to meet some of the riders afterwards which he thought was great.

    We had some fun here. It was Tuesday early evening so very quiet. Ate in the restaurant first and were the only ones in there! Food was good (pub style food) and reasonably priced.

    The casino area itself was large and we had some fun on the roulette winning a little, losing a little etc.

    3D Woodland Archery
    We spent a full afternoon thoroughly enjoying the 3D woodland archery experience in the beautiful woodland in Dorset.
    The hosts were friendly and extremely experienced, giving us clear instructions and support throughout the whole activity.
    We had a great afternoon and would highly recommend this activity.
