Twinlakes Review

On Tuesday we visited Twinlakes in Melton Mowbray. I had been before but this was about 3 years ago.

It is a brilliant family park and ideal for toddlers to tweens. There are loads of outdoor play areas dotted about with picnic tables and a few covered areas to help with rainy spells. The new dream Fantasy Castle area is great and my 5 year old preferred the play areas to the actual rides.

There is a mini farm and great splash park for warmer days.  Some people were using it on Tuesday but it was a tad too chilly for me.  It does look brilliant though and on a hot day  it would be a good idea to pack the kids swimming costumes and towels.

We spent nearly 5 hours at the park and could have stayed longer as the kids weren't bored.


We had lunch in the Buccaneers Island Zone.  It is a bit noisy but clean and loads for the kids to do.  Prices also reasonable.  My children had a chicken chunk & burger meal (similar to McDonald's happy meal) with slush puppy upgrade and it was £4.45 each.  I had a jacket potato with tuna which was £4.74 and was really nice.  This zone has several rides and lots of seating so perfect if it does rain.


As the weather was nice we stayed outside & didn't try the Labyrinth Zone on this occasion which would be another good place to get out of any rain. 


Both kids loved the new bouncy pillows just outside the Labyrinth Zone and would have stayed for hours!  My son loved the Bumper boats (steering was terrible though haha!) and Running Bears Summit Toboggan Run. My daughter's favourite was Jester's Revenge (fast teacups) and Buffalo Stampede (Rollercoaster). The Action USA Zone was our favourite zone and perfect on a sunny day and also the place to get very nice donuts 3 for £2.



I would definitely recommend Twinlakes but would suggest checking the website for height restrictions before going to ensure your children can go on enough rides and will be entertained.


It is an all weather park but obviously the sunshine helps and means you can enjoy the whole site.


They have themed events throughout the year and Halloween will be the next big event with FREE pumpkin carving.

My only criticism is that it maybe needs more signage as we got a little confused with which zone we were in.

Check out the website for prices and more information. Website link below

Prices are dependant on height.  Under 95cm FREE.  It is cheaper to book online so make sure you book before going.

Thanks
