Advantages: A day full of fun
Disadvantages: Possibly not enough for the older teenager
During the easter holidays my family and I, there was 8 of us in total with ages rangeing from 3yrs to 65yrs went on a day trip to Pleasurewood Hills.
We saved up our Tesco Clubcard vouchers so in total it only cost us £26. to get in which was a great start, as we were paying with the above mentioned vouchers we had to go through a seperate pay kiosk, we were lucky again as this had the shortest que, within minutes we were in the park, maps in hand we organized our days activities.
Just inside the enterance they had a block of lockers, you could hire these at a cost of £2. a day, very handy if you've taken a picnic for example, you don't have to lug everything around with you all day.
We didn't take a picnic, we ate in the cafe/restaurant, the food was reasonably priced, with a nice varied selection of hot and cold food, ready made sandwiches and filled rolls, fruit, cakes, crisps and biscuits and the usual hot and cold drinks.
We also saw a few take away kiosks, we didn't use these, but it looked like you could get a hot dog, burger, ice cream and a can of drink, all the usuals basically.
There were plenty of toilets scattered around and the ones we used were basic but clean, with plenty of loo paper.
The park isn't overly big we managed to walk around it all, and go on all the rides we wanted and also watched two of the shows, the sea lion show and the circus.
There were plenty of rides to keep our girls happy their ages range from 3-10yrs, I think between us there wasn't a ride we didn't go on, we even got Grandpa on three rides, so there was something for everyone.
In my opinion I'm not sure if there would be enough for the older teenager, but everyone is different and thats my opinoin.
You can go on the Pleasurewood Hills website www.pleasurewoodhills.com to get a discription of the rides and up to date opening hours etc, we found this very informative, we went on it the day before our trip.
I almost forgot, there is the usual gift shop right next to the exit!! There wasn't all that much in there and we managed to get out fairly quickly and only spent a couple of ££'s
Summary: We had a great, fun family day out.
