The Milky Way by bus

11 Aug 2020


Don’t miss out on this multi award winning day out. The Mily Way have made a huge effort to keep everyone safe including strict limits on numbers and it’s gaining them rave reviews!...but don’t believe us, check out TripAdvisor reviews below to see what people are saying.

There are currently very limited tickets available for selected sessions due to reduced capacity and ALL visits must be booked online in advance, so don't miss out!

The Milky Way is the only attraction in Devon to win TripAdvisor’s highest accolade, a Travellers' Choice Award, in 2016, 2017, 2018 AND 2019 and it’s a great option for some family fun. You’ll be surprised just how many attractions they’re able to open safely – one of the many benefits of having SOOO much space both indoors and out, and in a beautiful rural location near the coast too! The park’s newest addition is Ziggy’s Blast Quest, a brilliant interactive ride for all ages that invites you to pilot a Cyber Scooter and use your Blasteroid laser to destroy rogue asteroids and meteors before they destroy the planet.

MilkyWayVisitors will also love to ride the Cosmic Typhoon coaster and Cosmic Caterpillar, bump around on the dodgems, whizz down the huge Gravity Rider donut slide, run around the maze and jump for joy on the huge outdoor bouncing pillows. To wind down, enjoy a stunning show from the residents of the North Devon Bird of Prey Centre, paint some pottery, ride the mini-train, play a game of mini-golf and visit the very popular Sci-Fi exhibit (“from Daleks to Dr Who”). Then stop for a delicious meal or snack, available to ‘takeaway’ and enjoy indoors or outside.

Please remember to BOOK your visit online ahead of time.
