Cornwall’s Crealy Adventure Park
Ant stumbled across Cornwall’s Crealy Great Adventure Park website a couple of days before we were due to go on holiday to St. Merryn in Cornwall. We were trying to find somewhere close to visit that would keep the kids entertained if the weather was bad.
The tickets were going to cost just under £60 for 5 of us and at first we wondered whether it was going to be worth the cost for one day out.
It turned out to be the best value for money we spent during the entire holiday because on the first day of your visit you can have your tickets validated to give you free entry for the next 6 days!
So basically we could visit every day of our holiday for less than £10 a day for the 5 of us.
We didn’t go everyday but we did get our moneys worth by going on the Sunday, Monday, Thursday and a quick visit on the Saturday before the drive home to get the kids their free pumpkin each!
On the only day where it rained, we spent the time in the huge indoor play areas. There’s a haunted castle with a brilliant drop slide that ends in a ball pit and the other play area, Dragon’s Kingdom, has even bigger drop slides.
The kids spent hours in there and loved playing on the claw machine that cost 50p and let you play until you won something!
Ella’s only 6 so we worried that she was going to be too young to go on most things but it turned out she could go on just about everything. Sometimes she had to have an adult with her but other rides, like The Beast, she was able to go on her own and she went on it loads of times!
It’s fair to say that the kids loved every visit to Crealy’s and would have gone everyday if we’d have let them!
