Heatherton World of Activities is a family fun sport and leisure park set in the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside. Ranked in the top 5 places to visit on Trip Advisor it is one of the most popular attractions in West Wales.
With over 25 fun filled activities split into different zones to explore; the family fun zone, adrenaline zone, play zone and the golf and bowls zone, there is really something for all the family at Heatherton.
The park is open all year round and offers activities including water zorbing, baseball, crazy golf, driving school to archery, high ropes and soft play.
What’s great about Heatherton is that it’s free admission, you only pay (via a credit system) for the activities you want to do. Most activities are one credit; however some activities such as Adventure golf are two credits per person
Passes can be purchased from main entrance and at various locations at the park. Individual passes start at £12 for 6 credits. We had a 40 credit family pass which cost £77, but cheaper passes are available all of which are valid for 6 months from date of entry.
Passes can look a little on the expensive side but if you are a family of four and you all want to try out the activities the park has to offer then it works out good value for money.
As we arrived at the main entrance at Heatherton what caught the girl’s eye was the ‘Walk on Water’ activity. They thought this was brilliant fun as they tried to keep upright as they walked across the water in a giant ball.
Even though the weather wasn’t great during our visit it didn’t stop our enjoyment as we got even wetter as we took control of the inflatable bumper petrol boats and navigated the waterways whilst trying to avoid getting bumped!
It’s been two years since our last visit and with the girls getting older we had the opportunity to try new activities including laser clays and archery. Whilst the laser clays were lots of fun for my husband it was not appropriate for Chloe who is 8, as the gun was really heavy.
One of the most memorable activities of the day which we all could enjoy was the archery. The staff were so patient with the girls helping them with their technique. This ultimately paid off with many of their arrows hitting the target , whilst trying to outscore my husband and I. As we left this activity the girls said they felt like Merida from Disney’s Brave movie!
My husband loves American sports so when he finally had the chance to try out hitting a baseball he thought he was from the Major League. In reality this wasn’t the case as he struggled to hit the ball as they zoomed from the pitcher toward him, but it was great fun.
The 18 hole Pirates of The Caribbean Adventure Golf is really well themed and we had great fun playing the course when we last visited during the summer.
There are food and drink outlets at Heatherton – but with so much open space and picnic tables it’s a great place to take a picnic. We did call into the Craft Shack Café to escape the wet weather to warm up with tea and hot chocolate.
Heatherton is split into two areas by the main road. In this zone of Heatherton were some of the girls favourite activities. Starting with the 4×4 Land Rover Experience, it really tested their driving skills as they took on the course.
Holly was so excited as it was the first time she has been old enough to take control of the car, instead of being a passenger in her sister’s vehicle.
On the Barrel train, children take their seat in their own individual carriage and are pulled along by a tractor around a field. Even though it’s quite a simple ride, the look on the girl’s faces on their 5 minute journey was brilliant – they loved every minute.
Children can even earn their Heatherton driving license when they complete the driving school. It was lovely watching them in their cars practising their driving techniques such as at the traffic lights and following the road markings .
We managed to try out the paddle boats but because of the weather, other activities that we didn’t manage to try included the inflatable slide, giant jumping pillows and the fox carts.
There is so much to do at Heatherton it is difficult to fit it all into one visit, we still have to try activities including Tree Tops high ropes, body zorbs, and testing our driving skills on one of the largest circuits in Wales.
Before we left we tried the Pembrokeshire Raceway, which is Wales’ only 1/24 scale slot car track, which required lots of skill and concentration to keep your car on the track and was great fun.
Heatherton offers lots of new activities that all the family can enjoy. Even with the typical British weather that we experienced during our visit it didn’t affect our enjoyment with so many activities to keep you occupied.
The girls loved every activity that they took part in, especially when we all took part in the activity. If you are visiting Pembrokeshire, Heatherton is a really nice place to visit.
