A Country Kids Post: An Afternoon Spent at Crealy Adventure Park

On the last week of little T’s Easter break, we met up with some friends over at Cornwall’s Crealy Adventure park near Wadebridge.  I think the last time we visited was about a year or so ago.

We arrived in the early afternoon since T’s dad had some work to finish before heading off to Crealy.

It doesn’t look really different from the last time we were there.  Same rides, same animals, since there were rain clouds hovering above, they actually put giant tents over the Pirate Ship where kids can play in the open.  It’s more or less like a giant sand-pit.  Luckily the day stayed dry.  They also seemed to have the same restaurants and snack shops you can buy the usual kind of food one gets at an adventure park.

T and her friend enjoyed some rides together.

She and her friend F enjoyed the tea-cup ride so much they actually went on it twice!  Just watching them made me even feel dizzy!

The giant slides were her favourite.  She and her friend with their respective dads did the slides again and again.  It was actually funny watching grown-men go down the giant slide and laughing loudly like little boys.  I guess they never really grow-up, don’t they? 😉

The last time we went to Crealy little T loved the water slide, thank goodness she didn’t seem to remember it, while it was a lovely dry day, it was not warm enough to do a water-slide especially since you really end up getting wet afterwards.  She was happy doing the dragon roller coaster instead.

T also had fun looking at the different animals, but I’ll save that for another post.  And before we knew it, it was time go home.  I was expecting some tears, but little T was happy to be led home, though I have a feeling it had something to do with a toy she had eyed at the gift-shop.  Luckily for her, she remembered to take her money from her piggy-bank with her.

What about you?

What’s your favourite adventure park?

    This looks so lovely but it’s a lonnnnng way from us (Lancashire!). We love Alton Towers (although haven’t been since the accident there) as the kids love Cbeebies land. We also love Drayton Manor and Thomas land, lots of lovely places in this country for the kids!

    • We’ve never been to Alton Towers, nor Drayton Manor. Would also love to visit Lego Land! 🙂

  2. This looks so fab, your lucky to have this near you. The nearest we have is Gullivers land.

    Your photos are fantastic!!! I really want to go in some teacups right now – and remember my youth. Great post!!!

    • Thanks. I’m afraid I can’t do a teacup ride. I’ll probably embarrass my daughter by getting sick! 😉

    I love a theme park! It sounds like you had a lovely time, especially T! I am a huge fan of the giant slides too 🙂

  5. This looks great! I think it reminds me of some of the rides at Blairdrummond Safari Park (although that also has a massive Pirate Ship play area / sand pit combo).

    Looks like a lovely place to visit. To far from us though 🙁

    We might have to try it there when we’re down in the summer, although I guess it will be packed then! #CountryKids

    My kids adore Crealy, though I’ve not renewed our membership this year, it is so expensive but they do have some fun things. the tent cover is a good idea, such a shame when it rains and everyone is in the indoor play areas. Those tea cup rides make me feel dizzy too, that and the pirate boat! Glad you had a good time and thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

    • We’re not members. Probably because we don’t think it’s a place where we’d want to keep visiting again and again unlike the National/English Heritage properties that are dotted all over 🙂 Fun to visit once in awhile. x

    • It’s a small one really, compared to the others. But it’s perfect for children of a certain age 🙂

    That looks so pretty! I dont have a fave but we go usually have rides near the seafront here. I am always scared to ride with my son and he always want to try everything! Kids are so fearless! Love your photos Dean. The mood is so dramatic in them =) #countrykids
