I love a good theme park, who doesn’t? We were invited along to Oakwood theme park to see what they had to offer and it was so much fun. It was our first time visiting Oakwood and after going to Legoland I wasn’t sure if it would be that great for the kids.
Where is Oakwood Theme Park?
Wales’ biggest theme park, Oakwood is in Pembrokeshire, South Wales.
Oakwood for children?
We’ve gone past Oakwood a few times and MM would always suggest going when we visited Bluestone, I never really considered it as I assumed it wasn’t child friendly. I was wrong!
There are rides for older kids and adults but they also have SO much to do for toddlers. Rides start at 2 years old so unfortunately R couldn’t go on much but now I know what they offer we will definitely be going back.
Not only can children go on most of the rides but they even have a whole section of the park dedicated to them. Never land. It’s an adorable Peter Pan themed mini park with rides like Tinks flying school (Pop’s favourite).

What we thought of Oakwood Theme Park?
There is so much family fun to be had at Oakwood.
We had such a good day out and we’re really impressed with what Oakwood theme park has to offer. There are so many child friendly rides and attractions and some really fun adult rides too.
You can take your own food and drink and have a picnic but if you wanted to eat there then I can highly recommend Woody’s Burger Bar. The portions were really good and filling and our food was made fresh. We went on a quiet day so i’m not sure if they will have made up burgers on a busy one.
I absolutely loved the Bobsleigh ride and we all (expect R) went on a few times and the fact you can control your speed was a big win for Pops. MM loved Speed: No limits and Pop’s was a BIG fan of Tink’s Flying School.
I wish they had more offers on prices and offered a family pass though because when you compare it to places like Legoland which allows babies that can sit on a lot of the rides and often have kids / adults go free then price wise it seems more expensive.
Have you ever been to Oakwood Theme Park? What is your favourite Theme Park to visit?
Until the next post.
