Whilst this is the best part of the old "Magic Mountain" site, with some of the old favourites, it feels lacking with alot of vast, open floor space. The mini golf, whilst an old favourite, is breaking down and needs work on the carpet greens and surrounding props. - One hole drops the ball nearly half a metre into the... More

With family fun rides there comes noise...welcome to the real world parents! Kids loved it and that about sums it up. We'd go back again, just better prepared at 9am for the pumping atmosphere.

Visited this attraction with 4 children and they had a great time on the water slides, bumper cars, water cars, sideshow attractions etc but we spend over $80 in less than an hour. You can get a deal if you book several hours together as a package but even that's expensive. The payment system is credits which are loaded onto... More

Organised a group booking for our Basketball team & siblings. Kids loved it & enjoyed 2hr session, staff were fantastic, great value especially with a reduced per head price due to our large numbers. Our kids were aged between 10 & 16 & talked about it all night

I have visited here many times with my own children. On this occasion my niece and, great niece (7). I'm in my mid 50s. My GN and I had a ball on the water slides, dodgems, putt putt golf and, water spray boats but, I always find a lot of ticket machines don't work which, is really frustrating.

A great place to cool off inside if it's a 35-40 temperature day. Loads to keep everyone occupied from water shoots to boats to crazy golf. Vouchers available so they make great gifts too as a leaving present for friends. Friendly helpful staff - definitely well worth a visit .

I would not tell interstate visitors to go there as it is a rip off especially if you are on a budget, good for kids if you have plenty of money to spend. The only way to enjoy it is to try to go on a package or early morning

This has been a great place to teke the kids for many years. Found that as the kids have gotten older is not as exciting and fun. Also think some of the games have broken and deteriated a bit. Needs some updating and new games/ machines. Still worth a visit with under 15 kids

Good fun for the kids. Good odea on hot days with the waterslides and bumperboats. Nice food too. Has a good range of arcade games and chances to win prizes with tickets won from games. Has a ferris wheel out the front which provides nice views of the beach and surroundings.
