Is it worth it? I'm considering taking Ella when we are back in June (it's going to rain isn't it ). It'll take us a good 2.5 hours so that's 5 hours of driving! Is it worth it? SHe is a big PP fan...

We went when it hadn't long opened and they loved it. We stayed in a local hotel overnight on a deal with tickets to the park as well which made it a lot more worthwhile. Paultons Park itself was great too as lots of the rides were ideal for Joshua who was 3 at the time, and Jacob at just over 1 could go on quite a few as well. Just be prepared for lots of queuing!

It's great there. When we went the peppa but was busy but rest of park dead. The vast majority of rides all over the park are really tame so perfect for the little ones. Sammy loved it!

Thanks both. We will go on a weekday during term time so I'm hoping it won't be that busy (wishful thinking). I might look at staying overnight Margot too, might make it more worthwhile with the drive. My H is very excited about it

We went last June, midweek during term time and it wasn't too busy. A was 3 and loved it. We didn't have to queue longer than 10 mins for the rides and the rest of the park was quiet.

Absolutely worth it. N loves it and there's enough to do all over the park if the Peppa Pig bit is busy.

We've been twice. Once we drove home (about 2.5 hours too) the other time we stayed overnight. Both were manageable. When we stayed over we were able to go for a relaxing dinner too.

Hi, we've been twice. (my two girls are now 2 and 4) - they absolutely loved it. We're about 2.5 hours from it too but both times we've tied it into a long weekend stay at Sandy Balls (funny name but it's a bit like Center Parcs but with less activities).
The last time we went there (which was only a couple of weeks ago), it rained a lot but the good thing about that was that the park wasn't busy so we didn't have to queue for any of the rides!.
We normally go to Peppa Pig World on the Monday after a long weekend - then drive straight home afterwards. When you've finished up in the park, there is a pub just down the road called The Vine which sells nice food. We put the kids in their PJs afterwards and then they fall asleep on the drive home.
Go for it! Don't forget to take swimming costumes and towels for the kiddies are there are splash around/water fun areas

We live about 20mins from it. As others have said it's great, if you are going midweek during termtime you shouldn't have to queue too long. We went last summer when M was 2 and also took my stepson, I spent the whole day in PP world with M, H and my stepson did go off into the rest of the park for a few hours. M was in heaven. As Bink said there are splash areas so swimming costume or at least a change a clothes is a must!!!
We are fortunate that we are so close to it - we get there fro when it opens and usually are one of the ones beign kicked out at the end of the day!!
