The much anticipated attraction will have over twenty fairground rides to enjoy – including Sea Storm, Waveswinger and Don Sapo – as well as family friendly rides such as Waterballs, Racing Cars and Bumper Boats.

Food on offer will include ice cream, doughnuts, crepes, burgers, and sweets.

A covered stage area will play host to a packed schedule of summer fun, including free crafting, facepainting, costume characters and live entertainment. There will also be themed Thursdays called Family ‘Thursdaze’
