Sundown Adventureland has been owned by the Rhodes family since 1968 and attracts over 270,000 visitors a year. Sundown’s longstanding family bears Honey and Sunny are now joined by newcomers Kiki and Koko, the park’s brand-new monkey mascots, who bring monkey mischief to the park throughout the holidays.

Market Place at Sundown Adventureland

This was our first visit to Sundown Adventureland for a while and we had a lovely day out – it’s  a fantastic place to spend the day with your children. It has also been updated and painted throughout since our last visit and looks great. The park is a full day out with something for everyone – we loved the Pirate Boat Ride and our (especially my) usual soaking. This summer every day from 12pm, the park also hosts children’s party games such as school disco classic ‘four corners’ and the limbo, giving every child the chance to win their very own bear. Visitors can meet Honey, Sunny, Kiki and Koko and pose for photos from 2pm, before they get the party started with conga lines, agadoo and the macarena on the picnic field until 6pm.


Gaynor Corr, park director at Sundown Adventureland, told us: “Because of the variety of rides and attractions, as well as shops, cafés, restaurants and picnic areas, there is so much for families to do in one day. My 90-year-old mum and park owner Audrey still works at Sundown with the rest of our family, so we really understand the value of family time.”

Picnic Area at Sundown Adventureland


The park’s usual attractions, shops and restaurants are all open until 6pm including a four-storey indoor play area Crash Landings which also served us quickly and efficiently with some lovely food.

We also visited the liquorice and sweet-smelling fairy-tale Lollipoppet Castle complete with its very own sleeping dragon and the Wild Ostrich Safari Ride which takes you through the African Savannah on the back of an ostrich. Despite being at the park for 6 hours, we could have carried on with the fun, so well worth allowing a full day.

Tickets for adults and children over 90cm are £16.75 and children under 90cm go free. Family passes are also available to purchase which look like very good value for year round returners.
