Cornwall's Crealy Adventure Park
There are two theme parks in the southwest area of England that go by the name 'Crealy Great Adventure Park' - one in Devon, on the outskirts of Exeter, and one nearly 90 miles away at Tredinnick in Cornwall. A woman named Angela Wright had a vision of a theme park that was a recreation of a natural, country childhood, and so founded the Crealy Adventure Park in 1989. At Crealy, visitors can hold and feed many different farmyard animals, ride ponies, and learn about farming while enjoying the Adventure Playgrounds. Devon's Crealy Adventure Park was the first to be opened, with Cornwall's following some time after.
Cornwall's Crealy Adventure Park is built on the site of Trelow Farm in Tredinnick. The farm was originally owned by Terry Sandling, who had a personal interest in Shire horses, and opened the farm in 1989 as 'The Shire Horse Centre' for the public. It was then sold to Crealy Adventure Parks in 2004, who have since majorly expanded the farm. It now boasts over 40 fun attractions (including Swampy and Dina - the Parks resident characters, who can often be seen roaming the park), set in 100 acres of beautiful Cornish countryside, that attracts 200,000 visitors every year. The Parks most popular rides and attractions include 'Viking Warrior', the 'Haunted Castle', the 'Croc Corner Reptile House' and 'Water Walkerz'. Tickets are £9.95 for children and £16.95 for adults.
