My 4 year old spent an enjoyable 15 minutes on the trampolines. The Helter skelter slide was dangerous. The long slide was not slippy enough to slide. Several rides were closed. The 2 person swing was fun but I was worried about safety. Have Southampton council completed a safety inspection? Cheap trampolines that looked ok but I will not return... More

Good for under 5's good prices for tokens but this place is extremely run down. The rides look like they have never been cleaned and are not well maintained. I'm actually surprised it passes Heath and safety regulations! Train ride doesn't work either. The pictures on their website are very misleading! If rides were cleaned up and updated this place...

The staff are chatty and friendly but that is where the positives stop. Sadly the park is very tatty and lacking excitement. There were a few small friendly dogs running around loose which wasn't a problem for us but some children could be frightened. One of the little dogs was sick on the matting walkway by the trampolines where children... More

Fantastic place to spend an hour or two with small children. My 7 year old daughter loved it. The 75p per token/ride reflects the aged appearance of the park. My daughter had lots of fun on the Helter Skelter and trampolines. As previous posts suggest, it's a bit tacky and old but kids just don't care!!! Nice friendly staff too.

There's nothing here that wouldn't have been available in the 50's, and for all I know that's when these rides were installed. Yes, it's run down, but kids don't care! Ride (and snack) prices are from the eighties reflecting this, but the trade is (I assume) enough to make it work. We all get a bit of exercise getting there... More

I went in the summer holidays but having read the reviews (am considering having a birthday party here) feel obliged to write a review! This place has not been updated since 1970's. It does need painting and other TLC. The guy who runs it is also kinda stuck in the 1970's so staff do smoke and dogs are loose. However,... More

I took my 2 year old here for the first time having been here as a child many times. I agree with some of the reviews about the place being tired and needing work but there is some amazing vintage stuff here. People are complaining but you only pay per ride so if you went in and didn't like it... More
