How do I get tickets?

Tickets are now available for the 2020 season! Book here today!

When was it quietest on site? 

The event is quietest at 9am for people who prebuy tickets online when we have limited numbers of spaces available on site. Its also quieter after 3pm when the younger children go home for a nap.

We are open until 5pm but due to queues and to ensure people are not disappointed. For some of the more popular rides, however, we will stop the queues at 4pm to avoid any disapointment.

If you have a child with extra needs we have a quiet tent where you can escape the hustle and bustle of the event. For these children we recommend coming at the quieter times.
