The cost to get in was relatively expensive £30 for a family of 4 but once inside everything was free, this included the type of rides usually seen outside a supermarket and 3 different types of go karts.
I get the feeling 4 kingdoms aren’t quite sure what they want to be and haven’t put the finishing touches to anything. There were opportunities to handle and feed animals but nowhere displaying times or even a map showing where the animals were. When we did find the animals (who appeared very well looked after) there was nothing telling us what the animals were. Some of the staff weren’t in uniform which made if difficult to know who to direct questions to.
The children loved the gigantic bumpy slide, the indoor soft play and the swing boats.
The mums loved that there was only one way in or out of the soft play so we couldn’t lose the crazy 2 year old. Unfortunately the go karts weren’t so securely fenced in and we had to rescue him from the track when he decided the he wanted to get to the go karts.
We really wanted to go on the tractor and trailer rides but these and the bouncy castles weren’t operating the day we went. Again it would have been nice to see signs indicating this.
Overall though we had a good day we won’t be back. At nearly 7 my eldest is probably right at the top of the age range to enjoy 4 kingdoms and for our money I would prefer to go to Finkley down near Andover. 4 kingdoms has the potential to be really good but they bed to start paying attention to the little details.
Have you visited 4 kingdoms? Do you share my opinion ? Let me know on the comments below .
