“Kept us amused for a few hours”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Visited with two teenagers who dragged me round virtually everything. They seemed to enjoy most of the rides, it wasn't particularly busy, the longest queues were for the raft slides as you go in and the water rafts squirting water. Some of the rides like the new jungle adventure were just silly! Not enough to keep you there all day by any stretch of the imagination and even though you can collect a voucher entitling you to free entry for a further 6 days neither of the kids wished to return

“Small safe family park”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

If you are looking for chessington or Alton towers then move on , that's not crealy.
Crealy is a small family park, my kids 7,7,11 all loved it.
We went in August, got in at opening time (10.00) and all got on every ride by time we left. As the sun came out so did the queues, we waited an hour for the big roller coaster Maximus.
I found the park clean and easy to find your way around, plenty of toilets, and small enough you can pop back to the car (get hand stamped) for a change of clothes.
All rides clearly have height boards , mine could ride everything alone which made a nice change.
Plenty of picnic grassy areas.
Top tips......
Take a change of clothes for kids (even swim cosie for soak zone)
Take a picnic (on site food pricey as you'd expect)
Arrive at opening time and do the 3 big ones before the queues (Maximus, vortex, log Shute)
Book online save about 20% (I did this the night before at hotel, you don't need to print just ref no)
Really enjoyable stress free day

“Great fun and an enjoyable day”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

We took our two boys ( 5 & 10) along to Crealy and had a fun packed day, we could not fault the park, we felt the entrance fee was ok but book on line for the discount . The park was clean and everything was in good working order, our advise is that the park is geared up for younger children so it may be a little tame for teenagers but saying that we went on every ride the boys went on with the exception of the tea cups and we had a good laugh, the nice thing with crealy is that the rides with seats do have large and small seats so grown ups can go on the rides with the kids , well worth a visit and we was told weekends are less busy then weekdays so we went mid August on a Saturday and queues where no longer them 5 to 10 minutes on popular rides and others it was no waiting

“My children loved it. Twice.”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

We bought tickets for Crealy in advance of a holiday in Devon, and as a result got a nice discount, and also the option to go back for the following 6 days after our visit.

My children are 7, 10 and almost 12, so I was wondering how much they would enjoy the park, after experiencing bigger theme parks like Thorpe Park and Chessington, however they loved it, and spent the majority of the day on the outdoor play area (particularly the death drop slide) and then spent quite a while on the indoor play area too.

We decided to go back for a second day and again the 10 and 11 year old were busy most of the time on the play areas. This time the 7 year old tried out a few of the rides and it was nice to be able to go on rides quickly compared to the other bigger parks I mentioned above.

All in all if the children are happy, the adults are too. I highly recommend booking in advance, getting the 7 days for 1 offer activated at the desk, and also the £5 refillable drinks offer. The hot chocolate is very nice indeed!

“A good day out”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

I came here in July having googled things to do in the local area and we had a lovely day out.
there are plenty of rides for young and old, especially enjoyed the Maximus Ride coaster and the Vortex chute. for lunch we swerved into Mama Mia's and had the all you can eat pizza pasta and salad buffet which comes with a drink for less than £10 per head.
after exhausting the rides we checked out the cute animals - Donkey's , Meerkats, guinea pigs et al. over all the park was clean, the toilets were clean and the staff were lovely.
can highly recommend.
