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

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

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!

Something for everyone...even 17 lasses on a hen-do !! Trip Advisor Review
