Our day out at Sundown Adventure land

Doug has been off work for a couple of weeks and we always like to get out and about and make sure we go on lots of days out for the kids. On the list this year was Sundown Adventure Land. It is an under 10s mini theme park. Well I say theme park,Β there are a few rides and then lots of other play areas such as , Angry birds area, sandy area, Pirates Adventure, Crash landings (soft play) and much more. We had a fantastic day and both kids loved it.




We arrived around 1130 and it was busy in the car park, in fact we had to park in the overspill car park. The park itself was busy but didn’t seem to feel crowded. We started on the barrel boat ride and ended up getting wet, lucky it was a nice day and we wasn’t too cold. The ride was suitable for both Little Man and Bubs to go and they both loved it. Little


Little Man was keen to go to the Angry Birds Play area which looks to be quite new and it was great. He loved climbing, sliding, swinging and jumping. This area was aimed at the older children, well when I say older I mean 4 + there is a lot of opportunity for climbing really high which wouldn’t be safe for the smaller children.




We then headed over to the Tractor ride and the Robin hood ride both of which are small (well big enough for me and Doug to fit in) rides that go around a track. The sort of the rides the little ones love. Little Man loved spotting things as he was driving (pretending) the tractor around the track.




We all love the small little houses they had filled with adventures inside. The Wild West area was fantastic and is so much fun for the kids. Little Man loved having a shoot out in the shop and going into the bank robbery. Every where you go is very interactive which is great as kids love pressing buttons and pulling things and generally being interactive. There is so much to keep their attention. At the end of the wild west street is a train ride. Bubs has no idea he even went on this as he fell asleep and didn’t wake up, we got off the train and put him back in his buggy and not once did he wake up.









All in all we had a fantastic day. Yes some parts of the park may need some slight attention however this park isn’t trying to be Chessington or Alton Towers etc It is a great family day out and I would highly recommend it. We paid Β£40 for all 4 of us and there is plenty to keep you occupied all day

      Little Man loved the angry bird part the best. Its fantastic for kids of all ages, definitely worth a visit. x

  3. Blogging Mummy 23rd August 2015 / 21:39

    Its a fab place for the younger ones, id say well worth a visit. xx

  4. Erica Price 23rd August 2015 / 21:39

    It looks like a fun place for families. I’d not heard of this attraction before, but I think it might be one to visit when we are nearby.

  5. Eimear 23rd August 2015 / 21:46

    That looks lovely, nice that it’s suitable for under 10s I often find similar places don’t cater well for the smaller kids!

    • Blogging Mummy 23rd August 2015 / 22:01

      It was really nice to walk around and not have to worry about older ones pushing through or being overly rough. x

    Oh wow this place looks great. I love the photos with the slingshot! I think I may have to add it to the list of places to visit with Boo when she gets a little older!

    • Blogging Mummy 23rd August 2015 / 23:00

      I think we liked it so much, not only because it was a fab day out. There wasn’t any big kids pushing and shoving around the little ones as it under 10s only. The max wait time we had was about 20 minutes for any ride.xx

  7. Blogging Mummy 23rd August 2015 / 22:59

    Yes I think Β£40 was a great price, esp for the fantastic day we had. The kids loved it so we loved it, usually the way πŸ™‚ x

    We visited Sundown a couple of days ago. We all had a great time! Like you, we found it was busy but not so that you would notice. My son loved the Angry Birds part and my daughter loved the yellow brick road. Lots of great memories to be made there.

  9. joanna smith 23rd August 2015 / 23:51

    That’s a super reasonable price for the whole family’s day out! It looks massive too – that or there’s a bajillion things squished inside… sounds like great fun x

    This looks like a fab place to visit.Where abouts is it? We’re always looking for recommended places to visit aimed at younger kids.

  11. Louise 24th August 2015 / 01:07

    I’ve not been to Sundown for years but Stacey used to love it as a kid πŸ™‚ We can also recommend Wheelgate Adventure Park, which isn’t too far away.

  12. mummyburgess 24th August 2015 / 07:04

    Looks like a fab day out! I love these kinds of places as they are so geared up for little ones! And they aren’t bothered if some areas are a little tired! X

    • Blogging Mummy 24th August 2015 / 10:25

      Thats right I totally agree the little ones see through that. As I said this park isn’t trying to be one of the big ones and some places it is a bit tired however it is what it is and its fantastic.x

  13. Ickle Pickle (@IcklePicklex) 24th August 2015 / 09:29

    • Blogging Mummy 24th August 2015 / 10:55

      Love taking pictures for the memories. its a great place if you don’t have to travel for hours. It is worth a visit however think it may be a bit far out for you xx

  15. Kerry (@Ohsoamelia_blog) 24th August 2015 / 14:02

    • Blogging Mummy 25th August 2015 / 21:18

      It really is a lovely day out. Wish they had a couple more under 10s parks as its so good for the kids. x

  17. Zena's Suitcase 24th August 2015 / 21:06

    I’m really pleased you had a fab day. Sundown is one of my favourite places to go with little kids. I think we are due a visit right about now πŸ™‚

    • Blogging Mummy 25th August 2015 / 22:06

      I love the fact its never that busy and the queue times are never really any longer than about 20 mins ish

  18. Muuka 24th August 2015 / 22:09

    Te Angry birds looks like a lot of fun. And what a reasonable price for such a nice day out. It really looks worth the visit…granted it’ll cost a little more than Β£40 coming from Dublin… πŸ™‚

  19. katia75014 26th August 2015 / 15:45

    It looks like you had a cracking time! I must remember it if I’m ever in the area πŸ™‚
