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…

Attractions

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.

Events

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

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.

All staff were incredibly polite and helpful. Great day out. My son and I loved the Star Wars exhibit. The bird of prey show was amazing and the gentleman was passionate and dedicated. The magician/merlin show was also amazing. Lots to do and very committed workforce that creates a relaxed and lovely experience. Very good for rainy days as most inside.

Nice day out, lots to do and see, and great fun for adults too 😀. The staff were superb The young lady at the reception desk, the gentle dude operating Ninja Warrior Course and all staff on interaction were very helpful👏 Will be coming again very soon. Don't be expecting Milky Ways and Chocolate Fountains everywhere 😋 unfortunately I did.

The kids absolutely loved it. I have to say this is one of the best value adventure parks I've been too and we were only here for half the day. Granted we came here off-season which I'm sure makes a big difference to how busy it is. Food options were also reasonably priced.

We’re regular visitors. Our kids 9 and 7 LOVE it and never get bored. Great as a rainy day option but equally as good on a sunny day as there’s great outside activities too. We LOVE Merlin, he does fantastic shows throughout the day – funny, engaged with the audience and even educational (just don’t tell the kids!). He’s also so friendly and kind, a real asset to the place. Dave does the bird show, when outside it’s incredible to see Eddie the Eagle, Bones the vulture and some of his other birds soaring around. It is just as brilliant inside as the birds swoop so close to your head! In addition to all of this there’s 2 soft play areas (little stars for under 6 but by no means small area. It’s amazing my kids would still go there if I let them!), ninja warrior course, indoor laser shooting rollercoaster, 2 outdoor rollercoasters, small train ride, dodgems, Star Wars ‘museum’, bouncing pillows, outdoor doughnut ride, paint a pot, laser rifle shooting, good cafe at reasonable prices, bird of prey area and probably lots more. Well worth a visit. You’d easily spend all day there, the shows are definitely worth watching so factor that in too.

Great place with so much to do for children and adults. We were a group of 6. 7yrs to 65yrs and everyone had a great day. The science show and birds of pray showers were amazing. Food was a good price. Definitely worth every penny .we spent the whole day there. Lots to do inside and out so great in all weathers. Highly recommended 👌
