Attraction Information

Watermouth Family Theme Park and Castle takes you back in time to the simple pleasures of Victorian life. With animated scenes, a model railway, mechanical musical instruments, including a piano and banjo that will play itself, you can see the curios of the past come to life!

Then make it out of the dungeon labyrinth to a wonderful theme park set in a beautiful natural valley. You can't help to be amazed at some of the breath taking views they have of the superb North Devon Coast.

Marvel at the Mighty Mortier Water Show, explore Gnomeland and go panning for gold as the Gnome residents go about their daily business. Then take in some of the fantastic rides. You could fly your own aeroplane on the Junior Aviator, get lost in the jungle of The Big River Ride, or plunge down the mighty Tube Slide. Perhaps you would like to play crazy golf, or even crazy snooker, or maybe a walk round the maze and see if you can find your way out.

To keep you entertained during your visit will be Captain Andy and his dog band. They can't wait to sing you a song or two, as are Goosey Gander and the Geezers.

Are you brave enough to take on mum and dad in a battle inside the Soft Ball Shooting Cannons? Or dare you challenge them at the risk of getting wet with a round of Water Wars?
