Always come here to play crazy golf and it's probably the best on the island. Now has two courses, one pirate themed and one Jurassic themed. We played the pirate themed course and it was great fun.

We visited with the children. Every attraction is token-operated, and it's easy to buy tokens from a machine. There was a mini rollercoaster, big plastic balls you climb into, that are rolled on top of a pool, a bouncy slide, bumper boats, and grabber machines. My children loved it.

Stopped of at The Clubhouse and had fish and chips for lunch, the food was very well presented, a large portion and very tasty. The staff were very helpful and nothing was too much for them, they were willing to please. I would definitely recommend and stop-off at this cafe again.

A great 18 hole course with the chance of winning a free game at the end. Well maintained although a couple of curb stones are trip hazards! Little bit pricey at £5.50 per adult, but brilliant fun all the same. Toilets and café on site. Only downside was the woman in the kiosk.....Don't expect a smile!!! Will try the pirate... More

Some good rides here but as with all theme parks where you pay per ride some are pricey and £10 doesn't go far. They operate on a token system and each ride takes so many tokens per person. I think it was 10 tokens for £10. Depending on which attendant you get you may get away with 2 tokens per... More

Visited as a group of 6 friends. Chose this mini-golf course as it looked more colourful. Not too difficult and great fun. A little expensive, could have played next door course at discounted rate but only had time for one. Lovely photo opportunities as we went round. Good for families.
