The Milkyway Adventure Park

The Milkyway Adventure Park

Looking for a fun day out with the family? Look no further than the Milkyway Adventure Park!

Located near Bideford in North Devon, the Milkyway offers a wide range of activities and attractions for visitors of all ages. Even big kids.

Editorial Note

Besides the sheer variety of things to do here, the key thing to note for parents is that the Milkyway works on both dry and wet days.

We have been here multiple times as the kids have got older. And experienced the staff managing wet weather and opening rides as and when they can.

They do host an outdoor show for the birds of prey, ironically, we’ve never seen it as we have always been too busy inside, on the roller coasters, bumper cars or shooting down the gravity rider. I think we have done “Ziggy’s Blast Quest” at least 50 times each (no joke).

I can confirm large “kids” (adults) will fit in all the soft play areas and horseshoe slide and on the carpet slide mats and in the ninja place and so on…


The Milkyway has a variety of attractions to keep everyone entertained, including:

  • Rollercoasters
    Thrill-seekers will love the Cosmic Typhoon and the Clone Zone rollercoasters, both of which offer high-speed twists and turns.
  • Adventure play areas
    Let the kids run wild in the huge indoor adventure play area or the outdoor play area, complete with a giant bouncing pillow.
  • Droid Destroyer Dodgems
    18 state-of-the-art cars on a 2500 sq ft track in a themed building with special sound and lighting effects. Suitable for all generations and regularly enjoyed by families together, including parent and child sessions for smaller children over 0.8m, and the option to ride as many times as you like.
  • Ziggy’s Blast Quest
    Pilot Cyber Scooters, powered by Cerilion Boosters and equipped with twin Blasteroid Lasers, to destroy asteroids and meteors heading towards Earth after receiving training from the Blast Force team.
  • Shows
    Be amazed by the Milkyway’s famous bird of prey and magic shows, performed daily.
  • Exhibits
    Learn about the solar system and the universe at the Milkyway’s Space Odyssey exhibit, or explore the park’s fascinating historical exhibits.
  • Animals
    Meet some furry and feathered friends at the Milkyway’s petting zoo, where you can pet and feed a range of cute and cuddly animals.


Throughout the year, the Milkyway hosts a range of special events, from Halloween and Christmas celebrations to outdoor concerts and live performances.

Check the park’s website for upcoming events.

Dining and shopping

After a day of fun and adventure, refuel at the Milkyway’s on-site cafe, serving a range of hot and cold meals, snacks, and drinks. And don’t forget to stop by the gift shop for souvenirs and mementoes of your visit.

Location and Admission

The Milkyway is located just off the A39 near Clovelly, and is open daily from 10am to 5pm.

Admission prices vary depending on age and the time of year, with discounts available for online booking and groups. Visit the Milkyway’s website for up-to-date information on admission prices and opening times.

As a parent too, having somewhere that works on a dry AND a wet day for the kids is amazing. Super friendly staff, lots to do. Even big kids can go down the slides. Editor

An unexpected gem! We all really enjoyed our day at The Milky Way Adventure Park. We had two younger children (7 and 6 years) as well as our older niece and nephew (15 and 13 years). All of them had a fantastic time. Special mentions for David the falconer. The bird shows were really good. He has a brilliant demeanour, funny and engaging whilst being really informative. His birds are incredibly impressive in flight! The dodgems were a lot of fun. Ninja stars also brilliant for all ages and very tiring! Some of the activities incur small costs such as the penalty shootout, but this was well worth it in our view. Everything is provided with a smile and the staff were very helpful and encouraging with our younger children. I'll be honest, before arriving I expected things to be a bit cheap and cheerful. It was absolutely the opposite. Great value and lots of fun, for us adults too!

We have been here loads of time over the years and always have a great time. A great easy going fun day out for the family. All the rides entertainment is included in the admission price – entry is reasonable for a full day of activities.Food and drink are well priced, but always best to bring your own and enjoy out on greens.Staff are friendly and relaxed..definitely recommend this for a family day out.

An interesting adventure park dating from 1983. Well kept and clean. Helpful, friendly staff. Includes several indoor play areas, entertainment halls, dodgems, later shot ride, Dr Who & Star Wars displays, small guage railway, outside maze, small roller coasters, external slides, bird of prey centre, cafes, gift shop etc. (too many to list). Plenty to do but with limited opening hours (10am-4pm, when we visited) it's best to plan your visit so you don't miss out on the things that matter most to you. Enjoy.

Hands down best family attraction I've ever been too. We have a 13 and 2 year old so struggle to find places that suit both of them. They both had an amazing day. The special under 5s play area is OUTSTANDING! and teenager loved the ninja run. The sci-fi bit is super as an extra and somewhere that doesn't charge extra for dodgems is practically unheard of. Will be going back, which is great too as they give you a return ticket for just 7.50 a person. Birds centre was empty when we arrived as well so was like our own personal experience

We went with 2 adults and 5 kids. All the kids had loads of fun. The faves for all of them were the roller coaters and the space laser rides. They loved the play area and they had food and drink right next to play area which was perfect. There was also bumper cars which had a slow session (perfect for young ones) and fast session (perfect for older ones)
