Crealy Adventure Park

This is the second instalment of our weekend at Crealy. My first post focused on our experience glamping which you can read here, glamping. This post will focus on the adventure park.  If you book a glamping trip then your tickets to the park are included for your whole stay. You can also visit the park without staying on the campsite with a day pass or become and annual pass member.

We decided to allow Eva to dictate our first day there. As soon as we entered the park, we handed her the map and let her take us where she fancied. 


First up was the carousel. This is one of Eva's all time favourite rides. I must admit I think I enjoy them as much as she does. It's the perfect family ride as it's suitable for all ages so Ophelia was able to enjoy this one with us.

She then spotted the fairground stalls. Straight away she was screaming for us to try and win her one of the big teddies. I'll be honest with you, I am an absolute sucker when it comes to these stalls. I would stand there all day and play until I got what I wanted. Sadly, daddy doesn't have the same enthusiasm as mummy. We allowed her to play on the duck game and then we had a few goes at trying to throw 2 balls into a cylinder. We failed. Eva was devastated. However, the next day, after much persuasion from me, daddy allowed me to have another go and guess what? I only won! The look on Eva's face was priceless. This is what being in a fun fair is all about.





We then headed into one of the indoor soft play areas. I was surprised at how many indoor areas there were. It makes the adventure park perfect for all weather conditions. There were a few sections to the soft play which was fab. Eva could've spent hours in this particular one as there was so much to do.



We tried to get Eva to go on the Dinosaur ride but I think she's at that age where her imagination runs wild and she honestly thought they were real. We failed to get her on it the entire time we were there.

Daddy was desperate to go on the go karts so he went on with Eva. You had to pay £5 to go on the double karts. Even though they loved the experience, we thought it was a bit pricey. We understand that they are expensive to run but thought they could be cheaper.



We then went to explore the wilderness area and enjoyed hopping along various trails and paths. We found Bambi, much to Eva's delight. There's a beautiful lake to walk around which has an array of ducks and swans living on it. It's a lovely place to have a relax and chill away from the hustle and bustle of the rides.






We desperately tried to get Eva to go on the log flume called 'tidal wave'. She wouldn't go. I think daddy needs to remember that she is only 3 and not 13. He went on by himself and had a blast.

Eva also enjoyed the safari train, the pirate show and hunting for treasure. She even got a certificate for her efforts. We also loved seeing the farmyard animals, however we kept missing all the talks. 





I think Eva's favourite activity of the weekend were the drop slides. We all (apart from Ophelia) had so much fun racing each other down the slides. It was so nice to laugh and giggle and feel like a child again.



We ate in the park twice over the weekend. On the first day we tried Mamma Mia's pizza, pasta buffet. It's an all you can eat restaurant which cost £9.95 for an adult and Eva was £3.95 as she was under 4. We found this such good value for money. Eva loves to pick and have a variety of different foods so a buffet was perfect. The pizza was actually really nice and there were lots of varieties to choose from. We'd definitely recommend eating there.

On the second day, Eva ate in route 66. We weren't very impressed with that kids meal at all. It was quite pricey for the portion sizes and Eva wasn't too keen. We ate in the sandcastle family beach bar and had sandwiches which were nice.



Overall, Crealy adventure park is a fantastic day out for the whole family. We found it particularly good for younger children. There aren't any thrill rides so it does cater more for a younger family. We will definitely return, especially now we know it's closer than we think. At some point this summer we will be heading back glamping and enjoying this place as it took us back to feeling like kids ourselves.

Have you ever been there?
