      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Dont waste your hard earned money

      Decided to take my 3 children and my partner to Flambards.
      Well what can i say.
      The war time blitz display and victorian display is very good and shows the children what things used to be like.
      Apart from that i will not be returning there ever again.
      We decided to get something to eat for dinner so went to one of the cafe's.
      (I know you expect to pay a little more for food but there prices are way out).
      £4.75 for a kids meal with a fruit shoot well thats too bloody dear for me.
      And the cafe , well me and my partner felt like we were sitting in dirt the floors were dirty the tables were dirty and it just gave a overall impression of dirtyness.
      Now to the rides.
      The Hornet rollercoaster for children was good apart from the first time the attendent never pushed the safty bar back far enough for my children and they felt unsafe.
      I had my son sat infront of me and i pulled the safty bar back even further.
      The only other good ride was the log flume.
      Walking around Flambards was like walking around a ghost town it felt so deserted and this was on Sunday 30th May 2010.
      We only saw cleaning staff walking around no normal staff apart from ride attendents.
      If your looking for a day out then i would say Dont go here it's a waste of time and money....

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      So disappointing after previous years

      We have been to Flambards several times. Unfortunately what could be a fine attraction is badly let down. The static exhibitions (Victorian and Blitz) are excellent. Sadly the remainder is mostly junk, too much is chargeable as extra and many of the staff are surly, or at least disinterested, many attractions are badly run or in disrepair. Interesting static displays of aircraft from the past have been removed.

      The habit of fleecing the customer starts at the high entrance price, continues through too many chargeable extras and is at its most blatant in the restaurants/cafes. Would not be bad if the high prices bought you quality food. I suffered one of the worst pasties I have ever eaten.........in the home of pasties, this is a disgrace. Then they rub the price in by expecting you to clear the tables (on some feeble excuse, almost as good as they explanation of the additional cost items).

      On a quiet day when there was no excuse eating areas where dirty - surfaces (tables, chairs and floors) all felt tacky.

      Flambards if you really want to move ahead drop you prices OR make sure your quality matches the prices. It is clear people are getting wise, the place was the emptiest I have ever seen it on a dull (weather day) in August - surely the time and kind of day that should see you packed out.

      I don't intend to visit again.......such a shame because the museum elements are such a good starting point.

      Don't take the Mickey, the paying public don't like it

      Good Victorian village, staff obviously hated working there...Flambards is nicely laid out, easy to navigate around and the Victorian village is great. The downside is the staff were very unfriendly, we felt we were in their way all the time, and the cost. Once inside you then had to pay extra for the other rides. Left feeling ripped off and that we were a complete nuisance.

      A great family day out with plenty to do.

      Flambards theme park is a small family theme park situated in Helston. Soon as you get into Helston just follow the brown signs which will point you in the right direction.
      You can also catch a bus from Truro and other locations which will take you there.

      Not only is flam bards a theme park there is also the victorian village, this is made up of several winding streets which is set up to represent old victorian streets, there are stuffed horses with carriages, shops and houses that you can look in, sign posts and victorian dresses people.
      The most well known part of this village is the time capsule which is a chemist which has been transferred piece by piece and layed out the same of an old chemist, all the artifacts are genuine and there are lots of cobwebs

      Across the way from the victorian village there is the Britain in the Blitz exhibition, this is made up of old war planes, this section is very dark and all the curbs on the cobbled streets are white so you can get around. There is a constant air raid signal in the exhibition, there is also an air raid shelter so you can experience what it was like in the war, this is all very educational but also fun at the same time.

      The theme park has a wide range of rides for all ages, there is even a section for toddlers only, this is known as Ferdi's funland. Ferdi is the zoo's children's mascot, children can have there photos taken with Ferdi the bear.
      There are three main thrill rides, the hornet roller coaster, The thunderbolt and the Extreme force, which spins 360 degrees at high speed!
      There are also some arcades with various games.

      The park also has the really wild experience where at several times through the day there are animal displays which parrots, lizards and spiders, lots of displays and the chance to get up close and personal.

      At the centre of the zoo is the Science park, this is a dome attraction, inside there are lots of scientific experiments, this is a hands on exhibition where you can experiment with gravity, speed, water power etc.

      Flambards has plenty of facilities, there are plenty of food venues, a food hall, a café and stalls through out the park. There is also a special picnic area.

      There is a small gift shop with souveniers of the theme park, the Victorian village and Britain in the Blitz !

      The entry prices are:
      Adults £6.50
      Children - £3.75

      If your heading to the theme park in the summer then I recommend you picking up a Cornish guardian-the local paper as there are always discount vouchers in the paper in the summer and Flambards is always one of them.

      The park is open between 10am and 6pm, but the park is sometimes open later and some times closes earlier, depends on the time of the year. The park is always closed in January every year, this is where new rides are normally added.

      There is plenty of free car parking.

      Flambards really is a fantastic day out, if your on holiday in Cornwall then make sure you make this a day out!

      great place and you should try to go at least once

      Flambards is a fantastic theme park that you really can spend all day at. We have been a few times and the last time we visited was last year. It can be expensive to get in, I think it cost us £50 as a family of 4 last year but sometimes you can get some special offers.

      Flambards is based around their Victorian Village that is a life size village with all the smells and sounds of victorian life, shops with all the traditional stuff in and it really is so realistic and takes you back in time.

      There is also a reenactment of Britain In the Blitz and here you get to experince what life was like living through the war again with all the sounds smells and tales of rationing, the bombings etc.

      The other gem here is the Pharmacy that was discovered a few years ago which had been shut about 100years ago and never been touched, Flambards bought it and brought it here and it is amazing to see all the potions lotions and bottles of pills

      amazing and great to teach the kids about life gone by

      I can only assume that those who have reviewed this so called theme park favourably are employees or share holders of Flambards. We are young fun loving family visiting Cornwall for the first time and we love the county but feel that flambards was a total waste of holiday time and money. Some of the rides were faulty, exhibits are poor to say the least. Top Tip save your money and spend the valuble time on a beach instead. Flambards is rubbish.

      please ignore this beginning, it's to stop the loss of caps! aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
      aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa I'm not normally big on theme parks, so it was with some trepidation that I undertook a visit to Flambards village, near Helston, in Cornwall. This is a theme park with a difference however: if you wanted white-knuckle rides, you'd probably be very disappointed, as the rides element isn't Flambard's strongest. The rides area is a relatively small part of the park, and has about one of each main type of ride: a rollercoaster that produced plenty screaming, a log ride which left some people drenched (ha!), a spinning ride, a monorail, and a ride called Extreme Force which was a bit like a swinging hammer ride that goes right over - no, I didn't: not in a million years would you have got me on that thing! There was also a good go-kart circuit, (at additional cost - grr!) and after stopping at lots of service stations on our 9 hour drive to Somerset we were well practised on driving simulation games, so it was nice to give the real thing a go - right up until I drove my car back into the wrong pit lane, got out, and fell flat on my face. Still, that was probably the most memorable part of the day for me. I wasn't very impressed with Flambards - having not been to many theme parks I was expecting something a lot bigger with a lot more rides. I was also really irritated that all the things we liked seem to be the ones that weren't included in the ticket price, which was quite steep compared to everything else we had done in Cornwall (£12.25). The children's area had some less adventurous rides - merry-go-rounds and so on, and a fun looking water slide, but of course having forgotten to borrow any small people we didn't make full use of that area. Shame, cos we missed out on "Gus Honeybun Land." - my husband informs me that this large father-figure rabbit is very popular in Cornwall and was a bit shocked that I didn't know who he was. Anyway, we moved swiftly
      on. We spent far too much time in the amusement arcade (simulator games, machines full of stuffed toys that are impossible to grab, and my favourite, the strangely addictive 2p slot machines where you can win - more 2ps.) There were also lots of remote controlled car/ship stations, where you paid via a slot for a set time at the controls, and I discovered I was quite good at that (except for parallel parking, which is hard enough to get right in a real car.) Flambards is located on the site of an earlier aircraft museum, and very near an RAF base, which explains the nature of some of the exhibits. On show while I was there was the original prototype cockpit and cabin from Concorde - very memorable - not because I am a Concorde buff, just because I thought the swirly seventies orange seat covers were fantastic! Other exhibits seem more randomly chosen: a Creepy Crawlie show for kids, with the chance to hold snakes and spiders and all other things yuck, and "Wedding Cakes and Fashions Down the Years - 1870 to 1970" exactly as you would think (the cakes weren't real though) but all in all a bit random in a "theme park". The more educational parts of the park include: The Victorian Village Set in cobbled streets, a showcase of what life was like back in the Victorian era, with over 50 shops, and authentic sounds and smells. I thought this was well laid out and interesting for what it was (but I was hankering for more water slides so I wasn't that keen.) Britain in the Blitz. Similar to the Victorian Village idea: but sounds of bombs and air raid shelters instead. Some interesting artefacts and information points: school trip city! The Exploratorium The science zone. This reminded me of the Science museum in London, with lots of hands on experiments and silly mirrors and visual tricks. You could waste a good hour here pulling strings. Gardens: If that&#
      39;s your cup of tea, then you should know that Flambards have won prizes for their gardens, and there's a good mini garden centre with lots of unusual shrubs and bedding plants. All in all: I enjoyed Flambards but although we'd planned to spend the day there, we found we'd done pretty much everything in about three hours. Then again, we didn't take kids, and everyone knows it takes half an hour just to get out the car when you have a small baby and its accoutrements in tow. If you are a theme park junkie, then give it a miss, it will only disappoint you. If you like pottering and looking at things behing glass from days gone by, you'll probably have a better time. In short: Ideal for a day out for kids aged 8-15 or Concorde enthusiasts: Quite good for everyone else, a bit less ideal for two adults with gambling fixations, and quite rubbish if you like big rides. Sorry Flambards. Facilities: Car parking excellent, but gets b usy later on in the day. Good public transport links Reasonably café serving hot meals and sandwiches, but a bit steeply priced (picnic might be a good idea - there are tables available) Gift shop Wheelchair hire free and free guides Good conveniences (loadsa loos) Prices: Adult (15 to 54) £12.25 Child (5 to 14) £9.25 Senior (over 55) £5.95 Children 4 and under and Over 80's Free of Charge Seasonal Return Cards If you buy one of these for 25p you can return as you often as you like through the season for £4.25 per person per visit. Admission times vary with seasons but are around 10am - 5pm: check the website for more details. If you pick your times carefully you might be around for one of the fireworks displays which happen throughout the year. There are also events scheduled from Barney the Dinosaur (yay!) to vintage ying yings. www.flambards.co.uk

        Disadvantages

        Flambards Theme Park at Helston, Cornwall, is a fantastic day out for all the family. There is so much to see and do that you really do need to spend the whole day there. You will be amazed at just how quickly the time goes. Flambards caters for young and old, so everyone will have an enjoyable day, and no one will feel left out. Here is a taste of what’s on offer at Flambards. The Victorian Village. This is probably Flambards best-known attraction and every year something new is added. Stroll through the cobbled, lamplit streets and observe life as it was for our Victorian ancestors. The village boasts around fifty premises, including shops, domestic scenes and specialist traders. Visit the bakery and see the mouth-watering display of cakes and pastries. Look in the butcher’s window and marvel at the steak at 8d per lb. Observe as a Victorian shop assistant serves a well-to-do lady with a nice pair of leather shoes. Peer into the hardware shop and be amazed at the range of goods for sale (and even recall some of the trade names!) Cross the road (watch out for the horse-drawn cab!) and consult the Chemist about your chesty cough, or see the Dental Surgeon about that raging toothache (although having seen the ghastly array of heavy-duty instruments he has, you might decide to carry on suffering.) And then call in at the Post Office to send an urgent telegram. Stop by at Flambards Hotel and see the well-heeled guests taking their ease, while below stairs the staff slave over hot stoves. There is so much to see in the Victorian Village and you will really feel that you have stepped back in time. One clever touch is that authentic sounds and even smells pervade the Village, all adding to a superb sensory experience. Britain In The Blitz. This is probably my second favourite attraction after the Victorian Village.It is a re-creation of a bombed street during the Blitz, and was opened by Dame Vera Lynn, who, it is said,
        was heard to comment, “It was exactly like this!” Witness the scenes of devastation, the rubble of half-destroyed houses, the family bedding down in an air-raid shelter, safe from Hitler’s bombs. Sigh as you enter the grocers, only to find that most of the items on your shopping list are out of stock. Politely enter a wartime home, where Father rests, listening to Mr Churchill on the wireless, while Mother prepares a meagre meal in the kitchen next door. Pop along to the pub to see if they’ve yet had their long-awaited delivery of ale. For those of us too young to remember the War years, these scenes will leave you with a real sense of what it must have been like. Children who see the exhibit “No Time To Say Goodbye”, where youngsters are arriving at a railway station somewhere in the West Country to spend the duration with strangers, far from their homes and families, will be glad they live in today’s world. The Chemist Shop Time Capsule. This is a genuine Chemist’s shop, which was locked away for nearly 90 years, and is displayed at Flambards exactly as it was found, with all its old medicines, pills and potions and an impressive display of cobwebs. Fascinating. Wedding Fashions and Cakes Down The Ages. A beautiful display of wedding gowns from down the ages, showing just how styles and tastes change. There is even a wartime gown made from parachute silk. And the wedding cakes range from the elaborate multi-tiered confections of Edwardian days, to the modern all-chocolate cake. (Sorry, they are cardboard and not edible.) The Fun Fair All the fun of the fair is here, with rides suitable for adults and older children, as well as a very popular formula circuit track. There is elsewhere on the park a funfair suitable for younger children. Make sure you visit the Pirate Lagoon and the Space Quest! And a visit to the enthralling, hands-on Science Exploratorium is a
        must. The Gardens Flambards has some stunning floral displays and many of the plants are available for purchase from the Plant Centre.Rest a while in the gardens, and listen to the music drifting over from the bandstand. While in this area, go and see the gypsy camp, and don’t miss the wonderful butterfly area. Take the opportunity to shake hands with Ferdi Flambard, the friendly, photogenic fox. (Phew!) Food. Feeling peckish? There are lots of places to get food at Flambards.There are kiosks dotted all around, selling ice cream, sweets and snacks. There’s a Cafeteria selling sandwiches, jacket potatoes, pies, pasties and cream teas, as well as hot and cold drinks, and a sit-down restaurant selling a range of fast food. The Tea Pavilion sells a nice range of sandwiches and cakes in a pleasant setting. If you’ve taken your own food, there is a designated picnic area. Souvenirs. Visit the Gift Shop for sweets, books, toys, novelties and postcards for friends and family. Or try Pantry and Parlour for that special gift, or something for a collector. As you leave, pop into Goodbuy Gifts for a last look. It is also nice to know that there are excellent toilet facilities throughout the Park, well-signposted meeting points (in case any members of your party get separated from you), pay phones are available (by the Victorian Village), a Parent and Baby centre and a First Aid post (hope you won’t need it, but it’s reassuring to know it’s there.) For disabled visitors there is a free wheelchair loan and a route guide to help get around. Car Parking There is ample car parking, but in High Season the car parks do fill up quickly, so arrive early if possible. (When I visited last year, early arrivals were given Early Bird vouchers to spend in the Park.) There is a shaded area where you can leave your dog in your car (guide dogs only are allowed in the Park) Drinkin
        g water and a doggie toilet area is available. How To Get There Head for Helston, then follow the tourist signs for Flambards.The Park is situated on the Helston side of RNAS Culdrose.It is quite easy to find, as it is well signposted. Admission Charges Adult admission is £9.50,Juniors (5-11 years incl) is £7.95,Seniors (over 60) is £5.50,with the under fours and over eighties getting in free. There are also Family Saver tickets available. These charges are, to the best of my knowledge, current for 2001.More information can be obtained by ringing the Infoline on 01326 564093,email info@flambards.co.uk or by visiting www.flambards.co.uk. What more can I say except that, if you do find yourself in Cornwall this year (or if you are lucky enough to live there) do visit Flambards for a really great day out. You won’t be disappointed.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Theme parks such as Alton Towers and Chessington are famous not only throughout Britain, but also the world. Rollercoasters like the "Oblivion" capture even the most die hard theme-freaks imaginations. Living in Cornwall, It is hard for me to get up to these places...but I do have an alternative, in Helston, Cornwall, I have...Flambards. Flambards is a theme park with less emphasis on crazy rides, and more emphasis on, well....other things. Features such as the "Britain in the Blitz" tours and "Victorian Village" sets are perhaps what this attraction is most well known for. But, as I will go into more detail of later, tours of historic events are what older generations would like to see, but, as the kids basically have the majority of spending power in the country, "pester power", surely theme parks should be aimed towards the younger generations, perhaps rather than the old. Sensing this, Flambards are slowly, painfully slowly, but certainly surely, turning Flambards into an attraction which, to the masses of Ali G wannabes, can only be described as "wicked". The season for Flambards has just recently started, and they have unveiled a new ride, edging out the Hornet rollercoaster as Flambards' best ride. As I am sure any of you who have rode the Hornet can testify, it is not going to give you any heart attacks. But this new ride, deemed the "Thunderbolt" certainly made me collapse to the nearby grass as soon as the ride reached its finish. With upside down twists and backward flips, the Thunderbolt is not for the faint hearted. More conventional rides, which can be enjoyed by all, is the classic Log Flume, Flambards' very own "Colarado". To be honest, whether Colarado is the best name for this log flume can certainly be questioned. I do love this tried and tested ride, but vertigo fearers are safe, if you get my meaning! Compl
          eting the picture of the main rides is the "Space Mission", basically round and round, the "Balloons"...well, take a guess. No, they don't fly! Plus the mentioned "Hornet", those are the only hard rides that might provide even a slight twitch in the stomach. Outside of this frantic enviroment, there is an abundance of kiddies rides, featuring well knowns like the "Tea Cups" and "Pirate Ship". Actually, small children obviously feature high on the Flambards agenda as there are certainly the most well catered for. From creepy crawly wildlife shows where you can hold a snake to an indoor bouncy utopia, the little'uns won't get bored too easily. As promised, I am coming back to the Blitz and Victorian Village attractions. To walk around the entire Victorian Village, you need to set aside an hour as it is a tour that goes into excruciating depth, actual 1900 shops were transported to Flambards for the sole purpose of this village. The Blitz is more appealing to me, but sadly, it is not as long. As you walk past sand bags through narrow walkways, with an air raid siren at it's loudest, you do feel like you are in the war. Fancy a trip into a 1940's pub, then you are accounted for, as you can walk through a pub, listening to war time music, Madame Tussaud like statues standing by the bar. Perhaps because I have seen them too many times is why I am not so keen anymore, but if you are a first time visitor I strongly suggest that you check this out. Of course, theme parks wouldn't be theme parks without Ice Cream stalls, Souvenior Shops, Crazy Golf courses, Amusements and games, and Flambards is no different. By no means in the same league as Alton Towers and Co, Flambards is still a good theme park, and will live up to it's boast that it will provide the best day of the week. For Cornwall, Flambards really is a diamond in the rough.

            Last year we all went on holiday to mullion in cornwall.We planned on going out for days with the children. One of the places we went to visit was Flambards village in helston which is about 8 miles from mullion holiday park. We had a lovely day out,I recommend that you visit if you ever go to helston as its a great day out for all the family. There is so much to do. My favourite part of the day had to be the victorian village where you can wonder through the streets and alleyways of a lamplit victorian street.It is life sized and fully undercover. You can see how victorian life was and how they went about their everyday lives. Flambards also has the hornet rollercoaster and lots of other fantastic rides.It also has its very own tv weather station studio,playzone showband,family superkarts and childrens play areas. How about going back in time to the blitz,where you and your family can experience the tension and drama of world war 11. It also is a life sized undercover street of history and nostalgia.Find out what it was like in britain in the blitz. Flambards has so much to offer including gift shops,snack stops and take a look at the war planes. You can buy a family super saver ticket for four persons at £25.00 or £7.50 per adult and £6.50 per child,under 3s and over 80s go for free,prices may have gone up but you can find out at www.flambards.co.uk or telephone their 24hr infoline 01326 564093. I am sure I will visit flambards again in the future.When I get to my 80s,I can go on the rollercoaster for free. Rollergran!! It just shows you are never too old to have fun. A great fun place to visit with plenty of variety for the young and old.
