We came here for the day whilst on holiday. We had a great time. There were a few good rides to go on, a lake you could go on, a sheep show which was great for the kids to watch! The sheep were quite entertaining!...More

There's loads to do on a rainy day! As well as our huge indoor play area, most of our shows are indoors, and those that are outdoors can be watched undercover. Plus there's our animal barn to keep you entertained too.
