What they say

A lot more fun than Ascot - Michael Burke BBC National News

We had a fantastic action filled day at The BIG Sheep and saw some very bizarre things, from cool mountain boarding to racing sheep! - BBC Blue Peter

I haven't experienced the "nothing is too much trouble" from staff this much outside of Disneyworld. Trip Advisor Review

The BIG Sheep is the best all weather family adventure park in the area - Time Out

Age 8-57 had a fab time! One of the best theme parks we have ever been to - Loads to do! Lots of fun animals shows - made us laugh!
