“A little disappointed”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Have visited twice previously and on both previous occasions have been very impressed and bought a ring on each other occasion. However this time the jewellery shop was going through a major refurbishment so there was not as much on display. Had visited with the hope of buying some new earrings but was left disappointed by what was on display. We ate in the restaurant and the food was delicious (fish and chips). My son is 15 so too old of panning for gold and building a bear but having been previously we knew these things would not be suitable so not disappointed with them. Would be ideal for youngsters though. Enjoyed looking through the pearl shop and the hamper shop and had a good game of crazy golf which we all enjoyed. Will definitely visit again when in the area and hopefully will be as impressed as we have been previously

“great few hours out ”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

I visited last week with my five year old whilst we were holidaying in mullion cove .
In all fairness this was the best day out we had all week ! my son loved it here , he had great fun panning for gold and Gems , he enjoyed looking around the gem/ rock store and bought a few to go in his treasure chest. we stopped for fish and chips in the on site restraunt it was lovely and I feel it was fairly priced £16 for fish and chips and a drink each , lovely fresh food ! we then played crazy golf which me and my son had a good few laughs going around it , the chap who ran it was very friendly ! to end the day we visited the pottery / painting shop the lady who ran it was very friendly indeed , my son chose a Dalek to paint ( dr who ) . we spent four hours at treasure park and £45 well it was a relaxing few hours and money well spent as far as I'm concerned ! I spent £40 at flambards and we left after two hours of boredom , says it all really ! keep up the good work treasure park , we can't wait to come back in July when we are next back in Cornwall :-)

Needs an injection of reality
Not much has been done to make it all year round value
This is reflected in the SALES

“"Free" LOL”
Reviewed 10 April 2014 via mobile

Visited today.... "Free entry" LOL....only thing which is free is the car park and walking around the jewellery shops and other shops oh and the toilets but need to pay for everything else once your inside....
£3.50 for crazy golf "what a rip off for 9 holes" no wonder it was quiet, £3.00 for panning for gems, £3 for another panning, £2.00 for the 4d thingy,
bear factory £ ??, clay painting range of prices. £3.00 to c if you can pick a diamond was reasonable I suppose, however £16.99 to pick a clam to see if you have a pearl inside with a price ranging from £18.00 up was a bit steep considering making it into something started from around £50 I think....
The restaurant looked clean, can't comment on foods as didn't sample that....
Dogs were welcomed everywhere including restaurant....
Staff were friendly.....
A lot of work/maintenance was being carried out which was a shame considering the time of year....
Don't make a special trip here but if you do don't forget your wallet as you will definitely need it....
There isn't even a play area for the children to play in
