Very fun day out, great value for money. I do agree with some other comments on here about the place needing a bit of TLC but other than that I can't fault the place or price! Snowtubing is so much fun for ANY age!

We came for a day out with our children (14,13 and 11) and paid for their half term whole day package. This included two ski lessons, two tubing sessions and two toboggan run sessions. It also included a basic (sausage and chips) lunch with a drink. Every member of staff we encountered was polite, smiley and willing to help in... More

Tabogganing was so much fun. So cheap. The centre lost a grade as it's in need of some refurbishment but the experience was great. Can value for money n the staff were lovely

Stumbled upon this place on tripadvisor and really glad we did, We paid £12 for half an hour on the tubes and 4 runs on the toboggan. Really easy to find and parking was good. Staff were really friendly and helpful. The tubing was good fun and everyone really enjoyed the toboggan. Will definitely be going again.

We booked a package of three snowboarding lessons. When we arrived for the second one on the second week, we were told we hadn't "booked" it. Be aware, if you buy a package you've got to book the actual days in advance, just because you've paid for the sessions you've not reserved your place. We learnt this the hard way.... More

Great fun for all the family and a great venue for kids parties.The actual building and decor needs a bit of money spending on it, looking very tired and dated.The toilets wasn't very clean at all as was the main hall/room, reasonable priced refreshments.

I can't vouch for the ski slopes, they look a bit tired but I'm sure they are perfectly serviceable (and are a decent length) but the tobogganing and snow tubes are great fun and very reasonably priced, staff are always attentive and helpful too

Fantastic fun for an afternoon with our Groupon voucher of 30 minutes snow tubing and 2 toboggan rides each. 6 adults and 2 small children so we got the snow tubing track to ourselves and had about 7 rides each in the time. The guy running it was very nice and polite and we all had such fun. First ride... More
