I do feel there is one thing I must mention about the attractions, for which
the park deserves particular kudos. It's the fact that the wristbands really
are all inclusive. I think practically every other park I've been to has
charged extra for attractions like crazy golf, go-karts and laser tag. Here
though you get the use of these included in the price of your wristband.
This is very generous of the park and helps make a visit to the park a good
value day out.
Looking on what's offer
you'd think this should be a pretty basic day out. It's true the
flatness of the ride selection does affect the rating
a little, as does the poor selection of food available. However this
park overcomes these problems and offers an experience greater than
the sum of it's parts.
The whole pleasure gardens experience gives the park a welcoming and
traditional feel. Making it a place where a broad number of people can have
a day out. Whether it be to try out all the rides, or just to explore the
gardens and lake.
This was noticeable in the number of older people I saw at the park.
Normally it's rare to see anyone over 50 at a park in anything other than a
parental supervisory role. Here though you could spot some going on the ride
with their grandchildren, and even some visiting with friends who couldn't
resist a go on the carousel.
It's a park with a lot of potential. If it could get a few more memorable
family rides I think it could end up as one of this countries more appealing
As it currently stands it's one of the best parks if your a grandparent
looking for a day out with your grandkids, and a very pleasant day out for
everyone else. It lacks the memorable rides for it to be a park to go out of
your way for, but it's well worth paying a visit if your in the area.
