“For the young at heart”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Expensive, extremely noisey but kids love it. We had a nine year old and a three year old in our party. not much for the younger child to do but the nine year old had a blast especially the water slides which were nearly empty. Two hours should cover it.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

Great visit for a couple of hours on a freezing rainy Adelaide day in May. 4 kids were totally absorbed in arcade games, dodgems, water slides, bumper boats and more for a one off price. Great value and not sure what the whingers are whinging about! We were there during school time so our lot virtually had the place to themselves and the staff were brilliant. Would visit again if we were ever in Glenelg again!

“Kids paradise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

So much to do here for the kids even on a return visit. Yes it's a bit expensive but still worth it I reckon apart from the wee train which is précis for what it is.. Kids loved the watersides need the squirty boats. Food is so so as you'd expect. Good views from the Ferris wheel day or night. Kids loved feeding the tickets into the machine - the basket ball game is the best way to gain most tickets for least cost!

Found it a little pricey for some of the activities, but was good when the weather was a little overcast

“Waste of time and money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

This is the second time I have been here and I have come from Perth. The 1st time was terrible and I was hope to have a different experience but that didn't happen. The staff was very very rude and half off the games didn't work, I would strongly recommended you don't waste your time and money because you will be 100% disappointed as I was not once but twice
