We went during half term when the park was lit up. It was brilliant. The kids especially loved the dinosaurs. The few rides were also a hit. We had a great afternoon/evening here.

I would highly recommend this place for young children. Not for older children. They're are only a couple of rides. The staff were very friendly. I found it very overpriced for what it was. found it quite overpriced.
