“An unfortunate day out”

Written on: 24/08/2014 by 18Cleveland (1 review written)

I visited flamingo land today (24 AUGUST 2014) with my family and friends. It ended up being a disasterous day out because of various things, amongst which the infamously bad attitude of the staff was a key factor. Because of time and space constraints i will only mention a few of the unsavoury situations surrounding our day out. The toilets facilities were inadequate with huge queues outside them. When you eventually got to them, they were in such a poor state, that i (and several other… Read Full Review

Fully agree with this review.
My review in 2006 commented on the poor state of the park and my daughter had decided to give it another try after 8 years and went last week--she said it was just as dirty and poorly maintained.
It was rusting in 2006 so I hate to think how bad it is now.
I wrote a letter of complaint about the staff and general poor state of the park and was offered a free ticket!!! ha!. It was ripped up and thrown out.
Maybe if they invested some of the profits into training staff and maintaining the park it may attract more visitors and better reviews.
Thankfully neither my daughter or myself will never have to experience this place again.

I agree completely. From my experience, Flamingo Land is one of the worst days out imaginable, with awful customer service. The staff treat you like SHlT, the place stinks of SHlT, the rides are SHlT, the staff look like SHlT, the manager talks BULLSHlT and the toilets are full of...

NOT TRUE! I AM THE MANAGER AND FLAMINGO LAND IS A FANTASTIC DAY OUT, OUR TOILETS ARE ALL BRAND NEW AND STAFF ARE THE BEST IN THE REGION. THIS REVIEW WAS PROBABLY WRITTEN BY AN ALTON TOWERS EMPLOYEE. WE ARE NOT AS IT SUGGESTS. COME AND SEE FOR YOURSELF!

“great place!!!”

Written on: 23/08/2013

Flamingo land is an absoloutely great day out, but you cant always get through all of the queues in one day, unless your Q buster, so in order to make your time even better, you should stay a night or two, in this way you can get to the theme park slightly earlier than day visitors and miss some of the bad queues, in the theme park everything is great, there is rides and stalls to ammuse people of all age groups, when i am walking around the theme park everyone looks happy, most of the staff… Read Full Review

“Awesome, Amazing, Safe, Fantastic, Briliant, Great.”

Written on: 10/08/2013 by GroovyGirl (1 review written)

Resort - Absolutely brilliant, came camping here for a few night, the resort itself is clean and well kept, toilets and showers always seem to have someone around cleaning them. Theme park - the children aged 7 and 11 love the freedom they have here, it feels really safe and the love the fact some rides are children ONLY love it. Being a single mum I have felt confident and safe. The park is very well kept and clean, we're on our 3rd theme park this holiday (thorpe park and legoland) and both… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Flamingo Land”

Written on: 29/09/2012 by AmyEllenDixon (1 review written)

it annoys me at most of these reviews are bad. If you go at the right time of year you will experience flamingo land at its best. I have been going to flamingo land for 15 year and love it. People say it is over priced but if you look at it in comparison to other theme parks it isn't actually too bad. Also if you give the staff a chance most of them are really nice and chatty and make jokes with you. Being a Flamingo Land regular I also know that some staff are ignorant, but what can you expect… Read Full Review

“Flamingo Land should be shut down!!!!”

Written on: 02/09/2012 by dwdgrefewd (1 review written)

Well as well as visiting there numerous times, I also worked there for 4 seasons and trust me, you have no idea how bad the place is until you've worked there. A lot of people can visit there and have a great day, and there are a fair few good rides there, but apart from that, the place is an absolute disgrace!! Only problem is, that the rides break down as consistently as it rains in the UK, and in high season, the rides take forever to queue up for, and the Q buster system is worse than… Read Full Review

It obviously has not improved.

We have just arrived back from a 6 day break at Flamingoland, and never again. Booking in was a nightmare with no-one seeming to know who was doing what, but at least rhey were polite which is more than can be said of the people on the camping reception when we asked where we were to park we were told to find somewhere !! more easily said than done when half the ground was under water. We finally found somewhere to pitch and soon found out that there is no time curfew as there are in a… Read Full Review

“dirty with overpriced food”

Written on: 30/08/2012 by madgeca (1 review written)

rides good but the place was dirty, poorly maintained with smelly toilets overflowing bins, water coming in through the window frame in the food area. The cable car ride enclosure had pigeon feathers and encrusted droppings which did not get there overnight and must constitute a real health risk hazard to both staff and customers. Also most of the staff need to realise that customers pay good money to go there to enjoy themselves, they had no interest in helping people enjoy themselves I… Read Full Review

HEY :(

You might want to speek to avery member of staff there before you post things like this

I and others help others at flamingo land, all you need to do, is ask. We dont laugh at you, we have a laugh and a joke with you and try to make your day enjoyable. All this thing of us using phones, we dont any more, we can not use them. If you find someone using a phone, report it and the person, they should have a badge with their name on, and they will loose their job

“food terrible!”

Written on: 17/08/2012 by Anonymous... (1 review written)

Good rides, very busy, having to que for rides for at least 2 hours. The staff are very rude. When the ride finshed the staff almost shoved you out of your seat for the next people. None of them have smiles on their faces. It makes everyone feel uncomfortable. Me and my family went to the southern fried chicken cafe. People walked out of the cafe in disgust. The staff are very lazy and it takes them almost an hour to serve one person then relising they got the order wrong. We queued for 2… Read Full Review

Sunknath's Response to Anonymous...'s Review

Written on: 10/06/2013

Hey there,

For anyone wanting to go, the staff are not rude to you. If you feel this way, please file a complaint at the costumer service, and they will look into it.

If you would like to save time waiting, you can buy a que buster from any of the que buster stores, just ask us and we will tell you more and direct you to the store. They cost £2.00 per person, and it allows you to go up the exit ways and onto the next ride.

If you are disabled, you can get in cheeper, and you will have to go to first aid, and get your rist bands, this will allow you to go up the exit ways and onto the rides. We can only allow one pair of desabled passengers and theri cairers at a time on rides, health and safety.

We do not break the rules, I would advise you to speek to all members of staff before judging us. If I was rude to a customer, I would not be an Xbox Live Ambassador on Support, and a L6, so I take this offensive.

If you are wondeering it is sunknath
