Sundown Adventureland

We went to.. Sundown Adventureland!

The world of social media has been so kind to us, and more so recently as we were fortunate enough to be gifted a day out to Sundown Adventureland.
Sundown is an amusement park for under 10's where their dreams and imaginations come to life with yodelling goats, rocky mountain railroads and a castle which smells of sweets. 
Although this day out was gifted - the review is of our own opinion.

We arrived at the park just after 12, so our first stop was for a bite to eat at Honey's Pumpkin Patch Café. Sundown has a food and hygiene rating of 5 - so you can be assured the food you are eating is prepared in the best possible environment. The café has a lovely little indoor play area for restless children while they wait for their food and also has an under 5's outdoor play area too - which Isabelle love, she wolfed down her chicken nuggets as so was so anxious to get outside and swing around with the monkeys and spin around with the bears. 

(literally ramming her food in as quick as she could so she could go play & the happiest little girlie on the monkey swings)


Our next stop was at the 'Sundown Market' - Isabelle loved all the animals especially inside the musical pet shop.. it was brilliant watching her dance along and watch all the animals singing with her eyes so wide from amazement.



Once we could drag her away from the animals we headed towards Shotgun city where you're transported back in time to the Wild, Wild West. Both kids loved this area - Oliver loved the bank robbery hut where you can make a massive explosion and the shotgun range (obviously not real guns 😂); Isabelle's favourite was the 'Rocky Mountain Rail Road', she was so excited to be going on a train and kept shouting "choo-choo" and waving to the riders who were going and returning on the ride whilst we were queuing. 



We then went to Lollipoppet castle... and it really does smell of sweets! different rooms have different aromas and Oliver loved the oversized sweets (I think he wished they were real; as did I 😂). Once you exit the castle there's a lovely little seating area where you can sit down and enjoy a drink and/or some treats - we didn't have any but the doughnuts smelt delicious!!

The next themed area we went to was Toy Town - again, both kids loved this area! it comprised of different buildings you would expect to see in any ordinary town... but child sized!! 
(The fire station at Toy Town and Isabelle's happy face in one of the little 'shops')

These are just the first few areas we attended and already the kids were in love with the amusement park - I could probably waffle on forever about each individual area as they were all as good as each other from story book corner where your favourite fairy tales come to life to the angry bird play area where you can bounce, swing, climb and Jump around to your hearts content - they are all as wonderful as the next. 




Isabelle's absolute favourite thing about Sundown was most definitely the bears. Honey and Sunny bear (the parks mascots) have a strong presence throughout and Isabelle absolutely adored them.
Oliver's favourite was the 'Jolly Pirate Barrel Ride' - he giggled so much that me and Ste got absolutely soaked 😂 and quite frankly it was nice to see him enjoy himself so much without the use of a phone or games console. 

Overall, we all thoroughly enjoyed Sundown Adventure land, the queue rides were always short so the kids weren't getting bored.. the longest queue was for 'Robin Hoods' Merry Adventure', which I think was just a little over 5 minutes - I feel this would be easily remedied as this is one of the longer rides that more than one train could be put on. 
The only downfall I could find was that it was hard to find sheltered areas - we went on one of the hottest days and finding a shaded area was difficult - but, it is definitely worth a visit, even Ste enjoyed the day out and he is one male who is hard to please 😂

Our ratings for the day out are below:
Claire: 9.5/10 
Ste: 9/10 - Ste added its a great experience for kids.
Oli: 10/10
Isabelle: 10/10 - she really didn't want to leave.
