“Favourite attraction in Great Yarmouth!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014

A great day out for all ages. It was raining the day we went and it was still fun! Lots of mini worlds to see, buttons to press to make them move and play music. Included in admission (about £3 I think) is a free game of mini crazy golf as many times as you want as you can go in and out all day for free. Well worth visiting.

“Lovely place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

My children love it here. When you are inside, you could be anywhere as it is so peaceful. We love following the paths around. A pushchair goes around easily too. The gardens are well cared for and look really pretty. We normally go if there is an offer on. And the kids love the old fashioned penny machines at the end. Well worth it! :)

“A bit dated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

Visited with family as there was a special offer, which was good value but I wouldn't pay full price for very out dated attraction. Needs more attention to the actual details but the gardens are lovely

“Seafront attraction for all ages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

We went to the opening day of the 2014 season, our first visit for several years, although we did visit the separate tearooms more recently. The layout has not changed much in my lifetime, but they have updated and introduced newer models. There are also many interactive displays, where a button animates a scene or plays a short sound effect or commentary. They have also introduced a nine hole crazy golf [included in the entrance charge], which adds extra value.

You can usually get vouchers or deals to make the experience affordable for families, and they stamped our hands on entry, so we could return all day, if we wanted.
