Attraction Information

Sometimes taking younger kids to the bigger theme parks can feel like a waste of time and money, as you walk past yet another thrill ride they aren’t quite tall enough for! That’s what makes Sundown Adventureland so special because it's a theme park designed for kids under 10 years old!

Rides & Attractions
Sundown Adventureland offers a variety of quirky rides that will make your day of family fun worthwhile! With over 30 rides and attractions across a 50-acre space, there's a balance of rides that are both indoor and outdoor, as well as space to just sit back and relax.

Thunder down on the Rocky Moutain Ride, as you swerve in a choo choo train ride, and splash down with the barrel water ride. Have a whizz around on the Giddy Piggy ride before hopping on to Okie Yolkie Ride. The next stop would be Toy Town, or perhaps pop on the eye patch for the Pirate Adventure, docking in Smugglers Cove. If you have cheeky little monkeys, then the Monkey Mischief will be the jungle to explore. With a walk-through jam-packed with monkeys and wild animals! Spot the buttons all around and press them for more interactions with the animals as they join into a gigantic sing-a-long. A cheeky monkey, quirky ride filled with disco-dancing activities! Or how about diving in for a splashing time on the Jolly Pirate boat ride? A barrel ride like no other, as you enjoy a few bends around the corner as you run into a bunch of wicked pirates from the Sundown Pirate gang. 

Visit the Candy Castle Storybook Village and live in a fairytale dream as you travel through all sorts of magical tales and their themed worlds. With loads of interactive buttons to press throughout, can you blow the house down of the three little pigs or wake Snow White up? Maybe you'll be lucky and be granted 3 wishes like Aladdin? If you believe in magic, then take a spell at the Witches Cauldron, where you can perform magic and see if your wishes come true. Don't forget to experience Robin Hood's Merry Adventure ride through Sherwood Forest and relive his stories about him and his Merry Men!

Did you also know it's Christmas every day at Sundown Adventureland? With Santa's Sleigh Ride you can hop aboard and ride through all the seasons until the festive event itself. With dancing snowmen and oodles of festive activities, you'll all be grinning ear to ear! 

Adventure Playgrounds
As far as outdoor play areas go, one that’s themed Angry Birds is going to be hugely popular. Swing, bounce, climb and jump your way through a play area designed by Lappset. With fabulous climbing frames and apparatus, you can have fun with the angry birds and pigs! Fancy building sandcastles and playing on the biggest beach in Sundown? At Captain Sandy's Play Cove, you can enjoy sliding, building, digging and best of all - playing! 

But make sure you save energy and time for Crash Landings, the four-storey indoor play area! It's also jungle themed, so you could spot some cheeky monkeys or a slippery snake... And if your kids fancy an outdoor adventure, Fort Apache will have them exploring a multi-level climbing and sliding structure with forts to discover and defend and a curly whirly slide to zoom down.

Food & Drinks
If you're feeling peckish and need to replenish your energy, head over to Rodeo Corral for some tasty food and good coffee. A family favourite is the Pumpkin Patch Cafe which serves bakes, cakes and fresh
sandwiches and of course, Crashlandings Cafe which has lots of eateries for you to dine on.

Stay & Play!
Wild Acre Village is here to welcome you for a short break with the family. With brand-new cosy cabins that are designed for both small and big families for a themed holiday experience! With a variety of accommodation types to choose from, like bespoke lodges, family cabins, single cabins or double lodges, your holiday can begin here. 

There is also a bistro restaurant that serves evening meals and hot food and cold food - you'll be well looked after!

So much action, adventure and rides for children! It makes for a fantastic family day out for adventure-seeking families or a fabulous family break during the school holidays or on weekends!
