Camel Creek Adventure Park, Wadebridge
Do you have children with energy to burn? Then we recommend getting along to the amazing Camel Creek Adventure Park near Wadebridge! Camel Creek is home to some fantastic rides and attractions, giant play areas and all sorts of animals – and puts on plenty of shows throughout the summer holidays.
THE HISTORY OF CAMEL CREEK ADVENTURE PARK
Back in 1989, Terry Sandling bought what was to become Camel Creek – Trelow Farm – and created the Shire Horse Centre. In 2004, the Shire Horse Centre was sold to Crealy Adventure Parks, and it has grown each year since to become one of Cornwall’s top family attractions - now known as Camel Creek Adventure Park. Crealy Meadows Caravan & Camping Park, as well as Devon’s Crealy Adventure Park, were opened in 2012.
WHAT IS THERE TO SEE AND DO?
At Camel Creek, there are over 100 acres of fun to explore, both indoors and outdoors – so it’s a great day out whatever the weather. Younger children will love the Dancing Flowers, Toddlers Village, Fun Fort, Buccaneer Battles play zone and Viking Warrior Ship – as well as the 45,000 square feet of indoor fun, with soft play at Treasure Island and Dragon’s Kingdom.
There’s plenty for older children to do, too, of course – including demon drop slides, a haunted house full of mazes, ball pools and aerial glides, and of course, Camel Creek's most thrilling rides, The Beast and Morgawr – Camel Creek's dragon rollercoaster ride. Challenge yourself not to get wet (or maybe to get as wet as possible!) as you race each other on the Raging Rivers, and come crashing down the flume on the Thunder Falls.
After all that excitement, why not take a ride on board the Safari Land Train or relax by Silver Mine Lake with a picnic – followed by a visit to some of the resident animals… Camel Creek is home to meerkats, emus, llamas, kune kune pigs, pygmy goats, shire horses, and even a Burmese python, water dragons and West African Dwarf Crocodiles! That’s not to mention Pets Corner, with its rabbits, guinea pigs, tortoises, lambs chicks and ducklings just waiting to be cuddled.
When you need to stop and refuel, there are several cafes and a lakeside barbecue area – as well as plenty of picnic benches where you can enjoy lunch in the Cornish sunshine.
