  • We really enjoyed Adventure Island. With a 6 year old, we bought tickets and he got to enjoy the rides. Food and drink was really reasonably priced. It's a fun place, lots of rides for differing ages and thrill levels. It doesn't feel like they are trying to extract every single penny out of you, which is a nice change. It's free to enter too. Well worth a look.
  • A wonderful place for family adventures! It's suitable for age from 0 till 90! Helpful staff, clean environment! Food and coffee nearby, and ice-cream,of course! Enough parking space! It is located next to the sea! Highly recommend for day off!
