Reasons for trip

I had the grandchildren down to stay for half term and wanted them to have a brilliant time. Their ages are 10 and 7. We used to take them to Folly Farm which is also in Narberth which is aimed at younger children and they used to throughly enjoy going there. However they are older now and wanted a bit more excitement in the rides.
Upon arriving, the booking in was not too bad, being half term you expect to have to queue to pay. The actual park was in a nice position and had loads of parking. We decided to walk to the attractions, you could take a mini train but they came every 15 ,minutes and the children were too excited to wait around.

There are a number of large rides, we chose to do the largest Megaphobia first, we had a long wait about 50 minutes, which when we came to the ride was surprised that they only had one train section working when they could have two working and could have cut down the wait considerably. The ride itself was really good, the children came off the rides with huge grins on their faces.

We had a look at some of the other rides and the younger of my grandchildren was a bit short so could not go on these rides, my elder grandchild did not want to go on without his sister…so missed out. However, there were a large number of smaller rides, some involving water that they both really enjoyed. The queues were not too bad, waiting for around 15 minutes or so for most of them.

Big tip: take spare clothes..the children will get wet.

The downsides:
I think it was a bit on the expensive side to get in.£24 each adult and £16 each child (junior). Some of the attractions you have to pay extra for e.g. Panning for gold, plus there was a “flying in harness ” experience which was £10 extra.

Food- very expensive for what was offered and not much choice. and in the Peter Pan area where we had something to eat, long queue for two operatives, they should have another person to help at peak times (at the time we were there at 12.30 there was one to take money and one to do the paninis) , it was not very organised. The drinks £2.50 for a small bottle of coke, £1.50 for a very small bar of chocolate.
The park itself looked a little “unloved” looking a bit shabby and a few areas” under development”.

Some of the rides were not useable due to “technical faults”, the children were disappointed not to go on the “Drenched” ride as it was out of commission that day.
All in all, the children had a good day, but I would not go there in peak season – it would be too busy and too many long queues to be enjoyable.
