Driving to the adventure park, I was a little apprehensive about the success of our visit. With my family in the car and half term upon us, my highly expectant, super excited kids were looking forward to a new adventure. Being aged 9, 6 and 5, my darling offspring are not easily entertained simultaneously on a bright sunny day, never mind an overcast, rather chilly February morning.
We easily reached our destination and I was pleasantly surprised that the parking was free at the venue. The staff were very friendly and helpful and once we made our way through the base camp, I was really taken with the size of the park (85 acres). My kids immediately took to the Assualt-o-saurus before we started our explorers adventure. Due to the time of year, Predator! High Ropes and Dippy’s Splash Zone were not open, but this did little to distract my busy little bees.
We made our way along the Dinosaur Trail and visited the Secret Animal Garden where we were delighted to see some lovely wallabies and we touched a real live snake! We unearthed some hidden secrets at X-tinction and competed in the Stone Age Road Race before we unpacked our picnic.
Again, I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of picnic facilities provided both indoors and outdoors. The hot food facilities were lovely and clean but if your cubs are as fussy as mine, you can bring your own snacks from home and know that your families appetitive will be satisfied! After our lunch, we spent a couple of hours in Dinomite Indoor Play Area which has plenty chairs and tables for parents to sit down and have a hot drink while watching their kids.
We finished our day by completing the Lost world A-mazing Adventure and having a go on the Raptor Racers, thereby finding all our explorer stamps and collecting our medals! All three my children had great fun and were very tired after their busy day. The park is well maintained, and provision is made for smokers so very grateful that my children didn’t have to inhale anyone’s second hand smoke! The animals look well looked after and all facilities were clean during our visit. If you find yourself in the area, do make this venue one on your to-do list, you will not be disappointed!
