I have been here a couple of times now and love it. It is good value for money and gives you the chance to rest inbetween all the rides. Unlimited pizza and drinks for £12.95 (if I remember rightly) is definitely a bargain.

Hi it was £12.95 and adult and under 11 years £7.95 I think? With annual pass discount it was just over £10?
If the park shuts at 4pm - what time does this restaurant close please? Is it 4pm too and therefore not open for dinner? Thank you

Yes. They close early all apart from the roller coaster Resturant. That place is well worth a visit. I hope this was of help. 🙂
