Went over the summer with two kids 9&8 - the wristbands for €15 were good value for the kids (and saved the parents rows as they allow for unlimited on the rides). Rollercoaster is brilliant - one of the best ever. Parents may be better off buying tokens unless you plan on going on rollercoaster more than twice (queue was about 45 mins when we were there but off season would be less). We changed our tickets €60 to annual family membership for another €95 - Total €155 for 4. Great value if you plan on going a few more times. We told kids we were going to go some times for a picnic and to just enjoy the free activities (animals, playground, train, factory). We've done that since and it's still a great day out, although it's hard to walk past the rollercoaster!

Went here last year with my three children no family discout available and entry price does not include the price of wrist band which is needed for the rides this was another 15 euro each this leaves tayto park an expensive day out.
