There are three sessions daily from 1-4pm, 3-6pm and 6-9pm. The earlier you arrive the more rides you get.

The fun park is a security controlled enclosure, creating a safe, family friendly environment. Litter patrols will keep the site clean and tidy and there are seating areas, and on site toilet facilities.

A wide variety of food will be available, as well as an arcade, various games, Fun House, Bungee Trampolines and Water Walkerz. These attractions are all pay as you go.
