Retford Family Theme Park Top 25 in Europe

MUCH-LOVED family-run theme park Sundown Adventureland is celebrating this week as it has been recognised as one of the best in Europe, according to TripAdvisor, moving up two places from last year.

The travel website’s Travellers Choice 2019 list has recently ranked its top 25 amusement parks in Europe and the Retford adventure park has come in at number 23, alongside Disneyland Paris and Germany’s Europa-Park, and is number five in the UK list.

Deborah Griffin, park manager at Sundown Adventureland, said:

“We are absolutely thrilled to have been voted fifth in the UK and 23rd in Europe. It is brilliant to see the hard work of all the staff at Sundown being recognised by being on such an important list within the industry.

“We are incredibly proud to be alongside such international attractions. It’s perfect timing as we go into the summer holidays and we hope to welcome families far and wide across the country to our daily ‘Summertime Fun’ event.”

TripAdvisor’s Travellers Choice 2019 list is based on reviews by members the public, taking into account number of reviews, as well as ratings over the last year.

The news comes ahead of exciting times at the park as new holiday lodges and glamping pods will be installed next year.

Tickets for adults and children over 90cm are £16.75 and children under 90cm go free. Family passes are also available to purchase.
