Owner description: For a truly out of this world experience, don't miss out on the fun at the Milky Way Adventure Park - recently voted Devon's Large Attraction of the Year. Just 10 minutes outside of Bideford in North Devon awaits a full day of adventure for the whole family come rain or shine. Take a ride on the Cosmic Typhoon roller coaster - enjoy the panoramic views from the top, but prepare to scream as you face the hair-raising drop! Have a close encounter with aliens in the Clone Zone dark ride and take on the huge death slide in the Time Warp - if you dare. The newest addition is an amazing display of Sci-Fi memorabilia - one man's vast private collection of characters, collectables and fan art from film and TV...from Daleks to Darth Vader! There's plenty for smaller adventurers too including the innovative Little Stars play centre designed for babies to pre-schoolers. It has a multi-level soft play area, sensory room for babies, a dressing up area, roll play pizzeria complete with kitchen, tables and food to stimulate imaginative play - and even a pretend car wash with ride-on cars. The park also boasts the UK's largest bouncing pillow, as well as a smaller pillow just for children under five and accompanying adults. One of the parks most popular attractions are the droid destroyer dodgems which guarantee a bumping good time for everyone, including little ones with special gentle rides for smaller visitors. Another favourite is the Time Warp - North Devon's biggest indoor play area, with assault courses and slides built for adults as well as children. To wind down, visitors can take a leisurely trip on the Milky Way railway, and then sit back and enjoy the shows which include Merlin from Britain's Got Talent with his fun packed skills and thrills show and breath-taking displays from the North Devon Birds of Prey Centre. The park also has a 1,000 seat indoor arena, so you can be sure that the show goes on whatever the weather! Alongside this, there's plenty to try your hand at including archery, golf and laser shooting for all the family. With over 110,000 sq feet of indoor fun & acres of outdoor activities, The Milky Way is the biggest all weather, family day out in North Devon. It's designed to be fun for parents as well as kids and there are no hidden extras as all of the rides, shows and play areas are included in the entrance fee. Your adventure awaits you - are you ready?

I can highly recommend this Theme Park for a family day out. With the addition of "Little Stars" this year I am certain we will revisit many times in the future.

Had a great day, lots of stuff for younger children! Didn't have time to explore everything. Free entry into kids play area next door great added bonus!

Hi Giles. Very happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit to The Milky Way. We have always aimed to offer a full day out for the whole family and so it’s great to know that Little Stars is making visits even more enjoyable for young families this year. Hopefully we will see you again so you can explore everything that we have on offer here. Many thanks for taking the time to write a review.

Not particularly cheap to get in but no more expensive than any of the other similar attractions around here. We arrived just after 10 am and left at about 3.30 so spend most of the day here. The majority of things are included in the price (all except the archery and pot painting).
This place also caters well for people with special needs, I noticed that staff went out of their way to help a group that was visiting at the same time as us (Helping them onto the rides etc)
Little stars was brilliant for my 2 year old and he also loved the little tractors and sand play in the main building.
My middle son loved the rollercoaster and even talked me into going on it (I kept my eyes closed haha).
For me, the jumping pillows were the best bit, I really want some in my back garden now :o)
Well worth a visit, would return.

Hi Claire. It’s great to know you and your family enjoyed your day out. We really try to provide fun for the whole family so it’s lovely to know you all have your favourites from the day and our recent additions to the park have gone down well. As you noted we do not have any hidden additional costs and have attractions to entertain for the whole day, so whilst you may not consider us cheap we do believe our pricing is fair and represents great value for money. Many visitors also take advantage of our VIP readmission vouchers which can be collected for free on your first visit and allow you to visit again as many times as you like during the year for just £6.50 per person. Thank you for sharing your experience of your day and we look forward to seeing you in the future.

We live fairly close to this attraction and usually visit once a year when my in-laws come down but since Little Stars has been open (my son had his 3rd birthday party there and he and his friends had a brilliant time), we decided to buy annual passes. I have a 3 year old and a 7 month old and both really enjoy all that the Milky Way and Little Stars have to offer. Everywhere is so clean and the staff are really friendly and helpful. Looking forward to going back again next week :)

We managed to keep the grandkids (8 & nearly 10) busy for over 6 hours and I almost had to drag them away from the place. I bought an annual pass for the two boys as this will be a place to visit regularly when they are down to stay.
