“Lovely park”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Onchan park is brilliant for kiddies. It has a wonderful boating lake, park for little kiddies and bigger kiddies, crazy golf and golf. Its has a great restaurant - The Views and a lovely café underneath that is great if you just need a quick snack. All in all a very nicely kept park where your children can be kept amused for hours!

“Good family fun & stock car racing”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

We visited the pleasure park during our weekend in the Isle of Man to see what was on offer. I think it's definitely more of a family attraction (we were travelling as a couple). We did however have a go at the crazy golf- never too old for that! They also had: boats, go karts, zorbing/'bubble balls'/bubble football, mini golf course, and an inflatable slide (plus a play park), so it'd be great for a family day out. There is also a cafe which sells sandwiches/paninis, cake and icecream- plus icecream milkshakes mm, so good for a small bite to eat too (although would recommend eating inside- the seagulls stole several people's food outside!).

We went back to the park the following night to watch the stock car/banger racing, which was something new as we hadn't seen anything like that before. It cost us £12 for us both to get in, and there was plenty of seats in the grandstands (although we sat outside in the sun!). There was also a burger stall there serving burgers and hot dogs, and serving hot and cold drinks. The racing was great, it lasted an hour or 2 and there were lots of people there watching and a good atmosphere on the whole.

“fun!!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We went to Onchan pleasure park to let the kids go on the go karts. This was really good fun, and excellent value at £4.50 for 5 minutes. We then went back the next evening to see the stock car racing. This was a first for all of us and a really enjoyable experience. Family ticket only £16 for 2 adults and up to 4 kids well worth it. Kids loved the racing - especially the bangers!!

“Stock Car Racing”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

I have been quite a few times to watch the stock cars in Onchan Stadium. Quite a few of my son's friends have stock cars so it's great to see them compete against other racers both locally and from the UK. It's only a few pounds entry and you can grab a drink and burgers whilst watching. Great entertainment for a few hours and we'll worth watching.

“Crash, Bang, Wallop”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Visited for an evening stock car meeting at the raceway, which is part of the park. A crowd of about 500, many school-age teens, enjoyed the action, though by mainland standards I found it rather tame. The fields for each formula - F2 stocks, nudge-and-spin bangers, prod rods and ministox - were on the small side. The track is a 400m tarmac oval. Decent evening out, though, and something a bit different for many visitors to the Isle of Man. Onchan Raceway, opened as a velodrome in 1951, has staged stock car racing since 1969. The facilities are a little on the tatty side, but no worse than most in this budget motor sport.
