Our family went to Crealy last week and almost instantly regretted it. Everything in there seemed to have an extra charge on top of the already over priced entrance fee which I find utterly deplorable. To pay over £60 to get in and then have things cost more on top!! the staff I had to deal with were very young, poorly trained and as miserable as sin. Food was expensive and bland and I left Crealy feeling very angry. I can honestly say I didn't like anything about this place. Even my two... (read more)

I have two children who are 6 and 8 and we come down to devon every year just so we can spend a few days in Crealy. The soft play area with the drop slides is fantastic and the ponies that you can brush are my childrens favorites.The live shows in the tent are great, we did lots of big dancing to Bob the Builder last year and we are coming back again at Easter.I wish we had a theme park like this nearer to Portsmouth its great!! we paid to get in with Clubcard vouchers but even if we...

Me, my husband, sister, her boyfriend and my 15 month old son, were on holiday in Devon and thought it would be a good idea to visit crealy for the day. What a terrible mistake that was. The soft indoor play areas are very old and tired looking, they are in need of a make over. I already expected them to be in better condition after we had paid £60 for us all to get in. The animal section was good fun as you can feed some of them (for an extra cost) i have to say this was the only part of... (read more)

I first went to crealy when I was about 4, and I loved it. Went back when I was about 13, had a nice day out. Went back last year when I was 16 and I was SO bored for the whole day.
Went with my sister (14 at the time) and my stepsister (5) and parents. It was fairly expensive to get in and took a while. Basically if you're planning on taking anyone over the age of 12, forget it! They're going to be bored and complaining all day.
There's quite a lot to do, but not for 12+ really. Except the... (read more)

My grandson and his friend got stuck in the simulator. The alarm was going but nobody came. I found the nearest employee who didn't have a clue until I shouted at her and she got somebody else who had the sense to call maintenance. The children (both aged nine) were terrified and crying. I then looked round the park at the age and number of employees working at the park.
I would leave others to decide whether the park is putting profits before safety and well being of their guests. If I... (read more)

We went to Crealy for the day with our son,daughter in law and 3 grandchildren it cost an arm and a leg to enter (one child is only 3 years)we then discovered that there are quite a few things that you have to pay extra to go onto.
On deciding to get something to eat from one of the FAST FOOD places which was not very fast then discovered that the rolls were cold almost to the point of being frozen and charged a lot of money I was not impressed,we then went onto another part of the park to... (read more)

Crealy Aventure Park Devon. Around £50 gets a 6 day pass for a family of 4. This is good value in that you can keep returning but poor value in that on busy days, many of those in front of you in the long queues for rides will on their 2nd or 3rd visits. It does have some good rides and activities. However far too many of them require extra payment. Food on site is expensive (bring your own) and the Park shop which you have to go through on your way in and out has lots of things you children... (read more)

At first I was relativly impressed, it is well kept and the toilets etc are very clean and tidy, however, I was rather dissappointed at the number of paying rides once you've paid the all in price and entered, it appeared as though about half the attractions cost additional, I took my 2 & 4 year olds who both had a great time, although the 2 year old had less available to her as she was 2 cm under the lower height size.

Just tried out the new Vortex water coaster at Crealy and it was so much fun! There are 3 tubes to choose from, one is really twisty, one bumpy and one is a really fast drop and they have light effects. You get in a little dinghy and choose at the top which tube to go through. My daughter went on it at least 5 times and has not stopped talking about it since! We are going back again next weekend as there is so much to see and we didn't get to see it all. A great day for the family.

Crealy is very well thought out. None of the rides are too scary or too boring. It has everything a good theme park needs, a log flume, a newly rethemed rollercoaster, waterslides (coming soon) a pirate ship and loads of play areas. I found the staff on the bumper boats a bit rude though and didn't look like they cared much. Apart from the staff very good!
Also the website isn't the easiest to use now :/

Brilliant place! My whole family loves Crealy. Perfect for little children and older ones. You get a wristband to go back free for a week as well.

Had a fantastic time at Crealy Adventure Theme Park, my one year old son loved all the play areas and animals. My 34 year old partner and 53 year old dad were having great fun on the rides and adventure playland too.
All the staff were really friendly and helpful.
Great value for money as you can go back the next 6 days for free!
Food was tasty and priced well.

I have recommended Crealy Adventure Theme Park so many times to friends and my family! It is without a doubt THE best day out for families in the area. There is no other attraction which offers everything like Crealy does - the rides, the animals, the indoor play areas. It's a brilliant day out - if you end up visiting regularly, like we do, then you can join the Crealy Club. We camped earlier this month too which was such a laugh - we brought some friends along - spent the days in the park... (read more)

We've just come back from a great day out at Devon's Crealy Adventure Theme Park. I took my family with my two sons 7 and 10 and they had a brilliant day. I think its great value for money with the 7 day return and my boys are very excited to be wearing their wristbands ready to return within the week! We had a good weather so managed to enjoy the outdoor activities but there is also plenty to do indoor so I'm not frantically looking at the weather forecast to check we don't have a rainy day...

Had a great day at Crealy Adventure Theme Park - we went for my daughters 8th birthday and it was fantastic. We were concerned because we had a large range of ages with us but everyone enjoyed it. The room we had was well decorated and organised, staff were friendly and helpful throughout and the visit from the Crealy Bear really made her day. Shame about the weather but that can't be changed and didn't effect our day! Definitely recommend it for parties/general days out for a family. (read more)

I visited Devon's Crealy yesterday with my two children who are 2 and a ahalf and 4 and a half, and my friend with her children who are 9 and 6. We all had an amazing day! The sun was shining and the kids got to use the Summer Soak Zone - REMEMBER their swimsuits - as well as the log flume and panning for gold! Lots of water! They loved it!
We had lunch in the Adventure Zone cafe - really good value and it was really good quality too - lovely Exmoor Burgers!

We went to Crealy for a day out whilst staying with friends in Devon, but I found the place overpriced and at didn't live up to our expectations.
The rides were ok, nothing special and there wasn't much in the way of rides for smaller children (ie under 6 or so). It seemed that lots of the 'attractions' needed to be paid for, such as the little powered cars. I think this is pretty steep when you have already paid nearly £60 for a family of five to get in!
The toilets were disgusting, dirty... (read more)

I live in Exeter and have been visiting Crealy Adventure Theme Park for a number of years. The children love it so just paid for an annual membership. However, we visited last month and I paid for a day visit. Once again a great time was had by all.

Have just got memberships for 2 adults - my son is small enough to get in for free. We had been visiting Crealy in Exeter for over a year now as Daniel loves it, so for around £40 each we decided to buy the memberships. It suits us really well as we visit at least once a month as a treat - lots of animals to see (especially baby ones this time of year), indoor and outdoor rides and activities and they usually have a special event or childrens character on the holidays.

A Crealy dissapointing day out!!! We paid the best part of £50 to get into Crealy Adventure Theme Park (2 adults and 2 children on a family ticket plus our youngest child who was free). On the day we visited there were 4 attractions not running, but what really annoyed us was the amount of extra money you needed to pay once inside for some of the attractions. £4 for the go karts, another £4 for the canoes, £3 for a pony ride and £3 for the blow up balls that you got inside and walked...

We visited Crealy Adventure Theme Park last week (twice), and went with our 3 and 9 year old girls. As the youngest was under the height level we only paid for 3 of us and this included returning for a week for free (which we didn't know about but used at the weekend!) so it worked out pretty good value for us. You could return everyday for the next week if you wanted, making it even better.
The girls loved the animal realm, especially with all the new born rabbits and goats. The weather was... (read more)

Our children are 10 and 7, they really loved the rollercoaster and log flume. We visited in the holidays and ended up going back a couple of times for an hour or two during the week because you get free tickets to return for free in a week.

Crealy Adventure Theme Park (Devon) is easily located, just of M5 J30. Look out carefully, it is sometimes misable, due to it is on a corner! Also, do not drive into the Paintball attraction- this is NOT included in your day! There is plenty of parking, and Crealy open up the field above, which is needed as the park gets very busy on hot days. Entry fees are (23rd July - 4th August, Summer Prices) £9.95 for Adults & Children. Crealy, in my view, is a children's park, but there are some... (read more)

It has expanded brilliantly during that time but is not spoilt or too big.
