Crealy's Great Adventure Park: A super thrifty day out
In our recent journey to Crantock, staying at Trevella Park in a beautiful glamping tent we road tested several kid friendly activities and determined how good they were for a day out and how thrifty they were!
Crealy is a great blend of rides, soft play, animals and parks. Meaning there is something that suits every child. You can ride Morgawr the rollercoaster (if you are over 92cm) and screech in delight with the children. Or you can dive into Dragons kingdom and experience a great soft play centre. Crealy has been established for twenty years and showcases a great blend of new and old rides.
For a real treat you can visit the shire horses in the stables and spend some time getting to find out more about the animals in the daily shire horse chat. Plus you can groom the mini Shetland ponies!
Book online and get 20% off.
Or get a Cornwall guide which has some fab discounts in.
Get there early to avoids queues and spend the middle part of the day playing in the haunted house, dragons kingdom and treasure island.
Wear a waterproof on thunder falls - you will get drenched!
My kids adored Crealy, we went the year before and they talked highly of it all year. The unique blend of soft play, animals and rides really works for my kids. My three year old adored the reptile house and the Dino dizzy ride. My seven year old girl loved the beast - which terrified me. Her twin brother nearly died laughing when he watched his parents get soaked on the log flame.
Food and drink?
We took a packed lunch, but a large sausage roll was £1.75, a pasty between £3 and £5, and a hot dog is £4.20.
We did buy a reusable cup which we filled with tea and coffee all day which cost a reasonable £5.
They are also licensed, which meant we could have a cheeky little alcoholic beverage whilst the kids played. This helped when facing the death slide later.
Value for money
Without discounts a day at Crealy will cost £79.75 in peak season. However there are plenty of discounts available making entry much more reasonable. Plus you get free return entry for seven days which is a real bargain in my eyes!
Note: we visited Crealy during our stay at Trevellapark. We were not asked to review, we just really enjoyed the day!

We visited a few times last week and had a great time every time! Two things stood out the most and one of those was the lovely, friendly, happy staff! Everyone was warm and friendly, even the youngsters in the cafes couldn't have been more helpful. The other excellent part of the park is their animals; every one of them looked healthy and well cared for (not something you always see in places like this)! There was a lovely Yorkshire lady who we saw at the rabbit bit, the lizard bit and handling the snake and she was so patient with our son who has a bit of a fear of just about all animals that he has now decided he wants to work at Crealy when he grows up!
