“Not bad, but could be better.”

Written on: 28/07/2014 by Kaylieh359 (1 review written)

Took my 5 year old and my 7 month old daughters to this place yesterday. Firstly, I would advise anyone who prebooks their tickets online on the same day they are going to visit to expect complications on the system when checking in. Surprisingly, with modern technology and internet it still doesn't update or doesn't seem to have a clue who you are, even with your reference number. despite this hicup, we were allowed in and the staff seemed pleasant enough (although the ladies in the cafe… Read Full Review

“Great Easter Day Out!”

Written on: 16/04/2014 by TuckerSimmons (1 review written)

I took my 4 year old and Grandma here on 9th April'14 and had a great day. No queues at entrance or for any rides, yet there were plenty of people there to give it an atmosphere. My son loved the Angry Birds play area, and the indoor play area too. We went on all the rides at least twice, and had a great laugh on the water ride when Grandma got soaked! We took our own picnic food, but the food in the Crash Landings play area looked really good value. The staff were happy to chat with us, and… Read Full Review

“Truly a diamond in the rough in the UK.”

Written on: 18/03/2014 by CanUKFilms (1 review written)

Our family's trip to Sundown Adventureland (March 16th, 2014) A place you ABSOLUTELY NEED to take the family for the day. Truly a diamond in the rough in the UK. A seriously good place for your kids to let off some steam. Highly recommend. There is plenty of places to eat your own food, BUT they don't gouge you with the cost of food either. $16 for a family of 4 to eat lunch. We loved it so much we bought an annual pass. … Read Full Review

“Its ok”

Written on: 03/08/2013 by Naomi2404 (1 review written)

Bad points I think the map makes it seem bigger then it is and I don't think the cafe have much choice for healthy options. Some of the manikins are peeling and could do with a dust. I think some of staff seem depressed and are very rude. The ice cream is full of ice. And it's very over priced. I think the gate entry is a bit expensive. Good points. Good day out makes my kids happy. Not sure if I would choose this place often… Read Full Review

I've been taking my children to sundown since the early nineties obviously they're grown up now but we've been today for my three year olds birthday and although not much has changed the place is still absolutely magical , my boy loved every minute of it and to be honest so did I , you can't beat sundown for a cracking family day out with the younger children, great value, including the refreshments which are often overpriced elsewhere , we will definitely be returning again and again ,lovely… Read Full Review

“WASTE OF TIME!”

Written on: 15/03/2013 by Macdoooo (1 review written)

I specifically went to this place as I thought it allowed babies on rides. I went for my 2 year olds birthday with family and friends....nothing interesting there. Absolute rubbish and overpriced for what it is. I'm originally from Edinburgh and we have things like this on offer for FREE. Staff were very rude and refused to get me the manager and also REFUSED TO REFUND despite us only being there 30 mins... HOW DARE THEY NOT REFUND WHEN WE DIDN'T EVEN GO ON ANYTHING!! Ended up trying to make… Read Full Review

“Fantastic”

Written on: 24/08/2011

Absolutely brilliant! Tidy, clean and well kept. The rides are great and there are lots of interactive things to do, and everything works!! There's an exciting discovery around every corner. Great value for money, worth every penny. We stayed from 10am til 6pm but could have easily stayed longer. By far THE BEST in the area… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/12/2010

We had a lovely day despite the cold weather, we took our children aged 9 and 4. We had not been aware of Sundown Adventureland until the evening before we visited but it certainly has a "magical" Christmas feel to it - there is quite obviously a big Christmas fan behind the planning!! The details of the sliegh ride & the night before Christmas ride were amazing!! A quality gift from Santa too. The staff were very friendly and helpful, our little boy is in a wheelchair but nothing was too… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/11/2010

This is the best day of my life (this was what I heard from a child coming out of the new santa sleigh ride) and this is exactly what my 8 year old son said to me when he first visited Sundown in september. We promised him we would revisit the park in november and his thoughts have not changed one bit! He loved the new sleigh ride and the gorgeous christmas tree and lights which really do look fabulous. The sunny and hunny bear show was great and really kept the children entertained and the… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/09/2010

We have just returned from a day out at sundown adventureland where we took our 8yr old son for his birthday. What a wonderful place this is with so much to look at we hardly had time to see everything so visitors be warned it is a good idea to get there early. (5 hours just wasn't enough). The staff were very friendly and the park itself was very clean. The entrance fee was very reasonable for what was on offer, I would have paid twice the amount for the joy it gave to my young son and his… Read Full Review

“DO NOT GO! DO NOT GO! DO NOT GO to Sundown Adventure...”

Written on: 05/09/2010 by Deborah 71 (1 review written)

DO NOT GO! DO NOT GO! DO NOT GO to Sundown Adventure Land EVER! This is without doubt the strangest dirtiest and out and out waste of time and money you will ever experience. I took my four year old today for his birthday and will never go again even though I live only 15 minutes away. After desperately trying to have a good time for 2 hours we decided to complain and got to see the owner. She not only refused to acknowledge any of our complaint or give us a refund but when I said I would… Read Full Review

Since writing this review Sundown Adventure Land have asked that it be removed. It is unfortunate that they weren't so zealous about customer service as they obviously are about removing bad reviews!!!

Written on: 26/07/2010

I am amazed that anyone rates this place. Firstly I expect these places to be expensive but they charge the same price for children as for adults (albeit under 2s go free); so for 2 adults a 2 and 3 yr old, it was £40 just to walk in the door. Set in the shadow of power station cooling towers on the left overs from some farmers field - stunning this place is not! The are a couple of ride, all very similar: tractor through a faux-farm, horse carriage through short medieval scene. After 30… Read Full Review

I found this review very helpful because it confirmed what I thought from looking at the website. Looks like it could be a very expensive trip to a playground or indoor soft play, which is basically what this place appears to be.

Written on: 13/08/2010

I read this review while planning a visit with my Granddaughters aged 2 and 4.
<br/>I think the person who wrote it must have only visited the car park.
<br/>We entered at 10:30 and left at 17:45 but only after a struggle getting the children to agree it was time to go.
<br/>The two children + Mum, Dad, Grandmother and myself all thoroughly enjoyed the day. We will definitely be taking our other grandchildren at the first opportunity.
<br/>We had visited Flamingo Land the previous week which cost a lot more and had long queues of sometime boisterous teenagers and many rides would not allow the small children on.
<br/>So if you have under 10 year old children go to Sundown it will not disappoint them.
<br/>A wonderful day out and well worth the money to see the children's faces.

Written on: 11/08/2010

Well I completely disagree. My children are now 10 and 7 and still beg to go here every year and I have to admit - I think I enjoy it more than them!!! I think for the price (&pound;9.95 each) you get a full day of things to do and we always find something we didn't discover in a previous visit. The new play area is great and the kids are entertained the whole day!!!! I honestly don't see what is not to like about the place - it is extremely good value for a fantastic day out - much cheaper than what we have paid for Alton Towers tickets and probably just as much fun.

Brilliant day out. Value for money. You don't need to buy food there but it's not too badly priced. A new indoor play area means it doesn't matter if it rains. We have a 2 and a 3 year old and visit a least twice a year. Helps if your little ones can walk… Read Full Review

As a small child I visited Sundown many a time. Now I can take my youngest brother and it just gets better and better! I would recomend for anyone with small children as there is plenty to do, it is different to the bogstandered parks and is very clean! (it's nice to have clean toilets once in a while!)… Read Full Review

Sundown Adventureland, Rampton, Retford, DN22 0HX.

We took our 4 year old for her birthday this year, along with our other little girl who was 18 months old at the time. They both absolutely loved it. It is absolutley ideal for little ones imaginations, they were able to explore of their own accord. The rides were perfect for the age group and not too many. My girls enjoyed the tractor ride as they were driving muumy and daddy for a change!! We chose to go on a week day which probably helped… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/07/2009

We recently had a short break in Sherwood Forest, and with two children aged 3 and under, the search was on for ideal attractions for our little ones.

Sundown Adventureland was only a short drive from our holiday park,therefore we decided to visit on route. From the moment we walked through the gates our three year old was captivated, not to mention her baby sister, who couldn't fail to be kept amused with all the interactive displays and animated features.

The imagination and attention to… Read Full Review
