Only reviewing the tobogganing as that's all we went there for hence the 'very good' Good fun done this before in Germany and Switzerland. £8 for 5 goes so good value. Unfortunately the rest of the place is a dive and needs serious money chucking at it. Which is a shame as it could be something good

We had a great day out here for my nephews Christmas present. What do you buy a 10 year old with everything. We went for the trio option and loved the snow tubing and tobogganing. Great family day out and we had a great day for it. Great to get the kids doing something other than computers. It was also... More

We booked the joint snow tubing and tobogganing tickets which cost £12 for 30 mins snow tubing and 4 tobaggan rides. Its very safe and great fun the... More

Very fun day out, great value for money. I do agree with some other comments on here about the place needing a bit of TLC but other than that I can't fault the place or price! Snowtubing is so much fun for ANY age!

We came for a day out with our children (14,13 and 11) and paid for their half term whole day package. This included two ski lessons, two tubing sessions and two toboggan run sessions. It also included a basic (sausage and chips) lunch with a drink. Every member of staff we encountered was polite, smiley and willing to help in... More

Tabogganing was so much fun. So cheap. The centre lost a grade as it's in need of some refurbishment but the experience was great. Can value for money n the staff were lovely

Stumbled upon this place on tripadvisor and really glad we did, We paid £12 for half an hour on the tubes and 4 runs on the toboggan. Really easy to find and parking was good. Staff were really friendly and helpful. The tubing was good fun and everyone really enjoyed the toboggan. Will definitely be going again.

We booked a package of three snowboarding lessons. When we arrived for the second one on the second week, we were told we hadn't "booked" it. Be aware, if you buy a package you've got to book the actual days in advance, just because you've paid for the sessions you've not reserved your place. We learnt this the hard way.... More
