What Last Year’s Visitors Have Said

Fun for children (and bigger children!) from 0-100. Looked lovely and plenty to do and see.


What a truly magical night. My kids are a bit older at 8 and 10 but there is something truly magical about playing in an adventure park at night with beautiful lights and music. All 4 of us felt like little kids. Would definitely come back again.


We had a great evening out. Kids ranged from 3-9 years old and all enjoyed themselves. The lights were beautiful and the park was great fun.
