Reasons for trip

This is a small theme park on the outskirts of Southport town centre. Most rides on this park are token based which needs bearing in mind when you enter, Its £1 per token and most of the bigger rides are 3 tokens so if there are a few of you it will cost a fortune, we let the family go around on the log flume 4 times, 4 kids and £3 a pop and it mounts up to an eye watering £48 for one ride, this illustrates how quickly the cost mounts. The fairground is free to enter which is good, the food is reasonable compared to other theme parks, not vastly extortionate and if this is an issue you can nip out, eat and return afterwards. There is plenty of parking nearby, we used the large carpark across the road, not the one at the side as it was cheaper. The rides are fine, there are several larger rides and plenty for smaller visitors, I could see teens getting bored quite quickly on here as it seems more geared to the smaller visitor, there is a large cafe and indoor play area if the weather is inclement. The park could do with a spruce up and a wristband system which might attract more visitors. It is level access and there are plenty of toilet facilities which were clean when we went there.
