Having been before we really enjoyed it the first two times round but this time things seem to be changing for the worse. Firstly, the cost now is getting less value for money as at entry prices of £17 per person (no discount for children) it’s now getting to be expensive for what it is.
We noticed a few ride closures also, our personal favourite was the one where the kids drag a donut up a carpeted hill and slide down and it was closed. Last time this ride was quiet but I think this is due to lack of signage. A couple of the dinosaur rides have been closed also, yes they were pretty feeble as an adult but the kids enjoyed them. There are only a couple of larger rides but for kids up to the age of say 8-9 these rides are ideal. Our 7 year old is wanting a bit more now but we have been a few times and she has always enjoyed it previously. There are some great play areas around the park which if you’re lucky enough to get a reasonable day the kids can spend hours just playing on these. I do like the way that you can take a packed lunch into here which is a bonus if you’re on a budget or have a large family. We did eat a cheese & ham toasty in the dinosaur area which was only about £2.50 and was ok, but the hot chocolate that we had was tasteless and didn’t taste very chocolaty. I suspect that they may be cutting corners here as it really was watery and disappointing. They had what looked to be like a buffet in the cowboy area which was £8 for “eat as much as you want”. It seemed to have a barrier on though and I am not sure if you could go back as many times as you want or if it was just a fill your plate venue (anybody help there?). There are plenty of toilets and although they look tired most of the rides are ok. They also have a strange policy on some rides of not filling up the empty seats which I think would help cues along (particularly on the planes in the kids area – they can hold 4 but we were told that it was policy not to sit 2 in the front and 2 in the back as you are “strangers”. We had a hot dog also from a hot dog stand in the dinosaurs area, this was completely tasteless and don’t bother wasting your money - seriously! For the same price there was a small cafe place I think it was in Gully Town (it had a little town themed play area with toilets inside), find it and have a toasty (but not the hot chocolate!). Worth mentioning that if it’s rainy most of the rides are under cover so it won’t spoil your day. All in all it’s looking more tired and more rides have been closed (rip them out and get some new ones in!). We are in no rush to go back again.
