“Toboggan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Great if you like tobogganing! There's not much to do here otherwise. Kids could probably play a few arcade games but there's not much else. The tractor ride + maze was a good use of a ride ticket if you're bored of tobogganing. I'd also recommend the mini golf.

“Only if you're desperate”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Only if you're desperate for something to do. Maybe save it for last once you've done everything else. The place is a fair bit run down, getting old and pretty daggy. Been there a few times as a tourist, I cant recommend it.

“Expensive but lacking!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Very expensive to go here for a day, spent about $100 in total for a family of 4 & sadly the only things we could really do were the toboggan (over & over again), mini golf & send the kids on the jumping castle. It wasn't that the activities weren't fun, it was just disappointing to get there & spend so much to be bored within an hour. I wouldn't go back here.

“Plenty to do. A good day out, instead of going the beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

Lots of activities so close to Nelson Bay and Salamander Bay. Very reasonably priced too. Take the kids and have a ball!

“Spent much more time than expected here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

Caveat: It was ACT's school break but not NSW, so everything was much quieter than normal.

That said, we purchased a family pack of 12 activities for $80 (and they were increasing it to 16 activities); they offered 16 activities (bumped to 20) for $100. The activities included most anything that the park offered: maze - which wasn't staffed this particular day so didn't actually cost us anything, jumpy castle, rock climbing wall, kiddie kars, Splash Down, mini golf, and the toboggan rides. (The hot ice skating is only available with the larger family pack.) Children must be 8 to ride the toboggan alone, but when riding with an adult, they are not charged for a ride. It's a fun experience, but 3-4 rides is probably enough for the day. The mini golf is 19 holes and has some unique structures. Note that the golf winds through trees, so bug spray may be good for those who are bothered by mossies.

We expected to spend a couple of hours but ended up wishing they had a cafe so we could get a bite to eat. (They may have more food options during busier periods.)
