    I have been there countless times with my class of 8/9 year olds as it is near where we live. My kids seem to like it and they often go with their parents at the weekend. There are some rides there, a small rollercoaster, viking ship, water splash rides etc plus a laser zone, go cart type track , bumpy slides etc. If is not a big theme park by any stretch of the imagination, but my 8/9 year olds seem to like going there and have fun.

    We also have been more times than I care to remember with my 2yo. If your kids like playing on playground equipment then they will be amused for quite a while. There is a few rides as Danauk said - but they will work out pricey if you do not buy a wristband.

    There is a big area of water at the end of the park and always lots of hungry ducks. Lots and lots of green areas so if the weather is nice, pack a picnic and a ball!

    Kirsty went with her school holiday club and really liked it a few years back.

    Hope you all have a good time
