Thank you for your detailed and comprehensive review. I'm glad that the park entertained your children and you had a good lunch with us. It is unfortunate that you sat in an open top compartment during the rain, as this wouldn't be fun for anyone!...More

Our young children enjoyed the day out here. The park was good and they enjoyed the train ride. Quite expensive for what it is though.

I think your daughter might get bored, there's not much to see for a girl that age, my 3 y old son is train mad, if he wasn't into trains we wouldn't even take him there.
