Fairy Park Reviews & Ratings
Pros: - Park is tidy and well maintained - The circuit layout of the attractions is efficiently designed - Nostalgic feel to seeing the many fairytale displays come to life - Beautiful views from the top - Playground and attractions kept our 2-year-old's attention - No crowd at 3pm Cons: -Drive from Melbourne >1 hour. Located in a fairy isolated area -Yield in terms of 'play time' not high: we spent 1.5h there; 1h walking through the attractions and 30min in the playground. Summary: This quaint attraction is well maintained and relies on the charms of old-school wizardry and storytelling to enchant youngsters (and adults). It's a relief to not taint such experiences with overt technology in the touch-screen era!
We went here on Sunday, our kids really enjoyed their time here. Lots of attractions and their playground is amazing. The staffs friendly and helpful, if only they provide more shelter and toilets it would be perfect. Will come back in the future
Had a 1 and 3 year old who loved it. Spent 2 hours easily walking around, could have been longer if it wasn't so hot. A few more places to sit would be handy but love the circuit and uniqueness.the playground is one of a kind.
We loved the park. Kids 20mo and 5yo enjoyed it a lot. Their [fast] food is okay. Gift shop has some interesting options (my boys still play with some dragons - one is stretchy and one has hatched from the egg). Staff in the shop and food kiosk barely speaks English and we managed to communicate non verbally.
We had a great day. The playground was wonderful. We didn't see the kids for over half an hour (we did hear them). The story scenes were well done with it's short story. The bbq areas were neat and clean
