We are happy to receive applications from registered UK charities based in Devon and Cornwall or from local people who are raising money for National Charities (in which case we will need supporting documentation on letter headed paper that explains what the fund raising is for).
We will also consider requests for community engagement projects based in Devon and Cornwall.

Only high winds can stop our rollercoasters. During this time they will operate in all but the heaviest downpours - so bring your water proofs!
We are a family adventure park and try to provide attractions that the whole family can enjoy together. We have roller coasters, jumping pillows, dodgems and live shows that teenagers normally enjoy - as long as they aren't expecting Alton Towers they should have an enjoyable day. It is also worth considering a trip to The North Devon Wake Park, located just at the other end of our car park where, for a separate fee they can try wakeboarding or have a go on the inflatable aqua park.
Unfortunately not. All children under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.
Genuinely well behaved, friendly dogs on leads are permitted in much of the site.
We regret that dogs are not permitted in the bird of prey centre, bird of prey shows, carpeted play areas or on the rides. The outdoor putting area and seating area outside Planet Play is also out of bounds for dogs whilst the outdoor bird of prey show takes place.
You will be asked to read and agree to our code of conduct for dogs when you arrive at the entrance.
Exceptions will be made for service dogs.
For your convenience, we do have lockers availiable. They are located at the entrance of Planet Play £2 for 3 hours, £5 all day. You are also able to access your car at any point throughout the day and return to the park as often as required.
