The BIG Question...

What happens if there are Local or National Covid-19 lockdown and restrictions?

We thought we'd be as upfront as possible on this, it's a very difficult time for businesses and visitors alike and we don't know who's going to be locked down or when. Although tickets do not provide for customer cancellation in our Terms and Conditions we will endeavour to be as accommodating as possible for you without you loosing the your ticket purchase price. Please note the booking fee is non-refundable.


If we are not permitted to run the event due to Covid-19 restrictions in our area or there is National lockdown requiring our business to be closed we will postpone our attraction running dates. If we do need to reschedule the event and you are unable to make any of the rescheduled dates or times we will refund your tickets (less the booking fee) or offer you a credit of your ticket price against a future event date.


If the area your live is in a local lockdown or you are unable to travel to our running event due to Covid-19 restrictions or self isolation we will do everything we can to reschedule your visit to a later date. We do not offer refunds for non-attendance of a running event. If you can not make any of the rescheduled dates or times available after your local area or travel restrictions are lifted then we will offer you a credit of your ticket price against next year's attraction package.


To qualify for a rescheduled visit you must notify us in writing to PRIOR to your ticket entry date. Unfortunately we can not accept requests after the date of none attendance.


If you are unable to make the event for any other reason than Covid-19 area lockdown, travel restrictions, or self isolation then we are sorry but you will loose your tickets as they are non-refundable. Please see our terms and conditions for further details [CLICK HERE].

My child has autism/ADHD, is there a quieter time to visit?

As we are a drive-thru attraction only this year your children will be staying with you in your car for the entire visit so there will not appear to be a busy or quiet time as your group size (bubble) will remain the same. If your child does not travel well or does not like to be confined to the car this attraction may not be suitable for you this year.

Our nearest train station is Penyffordd. This is just under 10minutes drive away, however as we are a drive through attraction and you will need to arrive by car.
