“Come on kids, there’s lots to see and do. Your adventure is just beginning!”

Bet you’ve never heard a goat yodel or a potato talk, but you will at Sundown Market, and with your help all the animals in the musical pet shop will join in the chorus of their very own song. Explore the Rodeo Corral Indoor Play Area and climb aboard the Rocky Mountain Railroad, but hold onto your hats folks, those pesky bandits are popping up everywhere.

Be careful not to wake the dragon as you enter the Lollipoppet castle with all its smells of candy. Then its on to the Tractor Ride for a trip around the countryside before talking to the animals on our Animated Farm. Grab those bows and arrows and climb aboard the Robin Hood Ride to join Robin and his merry men as they travel through Sherwood Forest. Then its onto Crash Landings – our fantastic four storey indoor play area and cafe, climb and explore the jungle where you may get a surprise from a cheeky monkey or a slippery snake.

Run, swing and play in our bright and colourful Angry Birds Activity Park. Take a spin on the Okie Yolkie ride and bounce along on the Giddy Piggies ride. Don’t Forget to sing and dance along with the Monkeys at Monkey Mischief.

Ahoy there! Time to take to the Jolly Pirate Ride – but you better watch out, for who knows were those wicked pirates are lying in wait with a surprise or two! Don’t forget your buckets and spades – you’ll need them in Captain Sandy’s Play Cove.

But no one can be scared of the delightful little friends whose lovely scenes lead us through the seasons on to the magical Sleigh Ride through Santa’s traditional winter wonderland, hey, what's that reindeer doing in bed?! when your ready for a break, take the kids for a snack or a treat in one of our cafes or shops where there are lots of goodies available.

Also don’t forget, we’re open at Christmas, so come along and ride our fantastic night before Christmas ride before visiting Santa in his Lovely home and receive a free gift for all children aged 2 to 10 years .

We went with our five year old and right year old, they loved it. It was very clean and tidy. There are lots of different places to eat your picnic. The queues for the ride were 10 minutes at the most. Staff were friendly and helpful. Well worth a family visit.

I can remember coming here as a child when it was free! I thought it was amaxing then and I still think it is today. As an adult I tend to come here with my children and grandchildren every easter. Each year I always see new things and improvement around Sundown still continues. I have noticed that under 2's are... More

OK. This is a tough place to review. Firstly, it's great for young kids. Loads for them to do and my 8 year old daughter has loved both times we have been. Second, despite what some other reviews say, the prices are reasonable. The entry cost is not high, the food is not badly priced (£1 for a cup of... More

We have not been here for years, and during that time it has changed out of all recognition. It is like a mini Disneyland aimed at three to eight year olds with plenty of rides and a great playground area.

My only gripe is that I didn't visit 5 years sooner!! My daughters are 9,7 & 3 and we toyed for ages whether to go as £72.50 (online peer booked price) isn't the cheapest of days out but we did and my goodness we are pleased we did! What a place, as others have said is very much an outdoors... More

Went here today with my wife and granddaughter. This is by far the best value for money day out if you have youngsters my granddaughter is almost four years of age and she loved every minute at Sundown Adventure land. We took a picnic but we spent so long there that I had to buy us all a meal, which... More

We had a great day with our kids 3&6. Sundown is perfect for this age group and a good introduction to theme parks without the ridiculous cost of other leading theme parks. I would visit again, I doubt older kids will find as enjoyable though. Food and drink was reasonably priced as well.

We have been going here on and off for about 40 years, firstly with our children , and then our grandchildren. We hadn't been for a few years. Initially we thought it was a bit expensive, but we had a 7 year old and 4 year old staying with us, so we decided to give it a try. We are... More
