This park was absolutely perfect for a day out with our 4-year-old. He was able to go on everything he wanted to. We got there at opening, and despite being the summer hols, we queued for nothing for the first few hours. The bathroom facilities...More

Nice theme park, not too crowded despite summer hols, few queues, easy layout, lots for little ones. One request: taps for filling water bottles. Selling water in plastic bottles is sooo passe!

A small park but a lot of activities for younger children, teenagers and adults ! A good restaurant near the park. It's better when it's sunny.

Always a great day out for families with younger children. Larger picnic area and reasonable admission charges that make a day out very affordable. Great fun, good rides....and they are also investing. Two great new rides for 2016..

This theme park is fabulous for little ones and, compared to the price of entry in the UK, very good value. Our littlest one got in for free as she was under 95cm. Rides are graded by height and even the smallest of children are...More

We visited as a family in August but the park didn't feel too busy. We certainly didn't have to wait too long for any rides. It's really reasonably priced but I would say it's for younger kids. My 3 year old was only too small...More

At 17 euros an adult and 15 euros a child it's cheap compared to the UK. A bit of a queue to get tickets but not bad queues once we were in. Best time for rides is when everyone has lunch! It has a small...More
