The Milky Way Adventure Park

Add to your favourites

You’ll find fantastic fun for ALL the family at The Milky Way, near Clovelly – the only attraction in Devon to be awarded Trip Advisor’s highest accolade, the Best of the Best Award.

The park has a fantastic family favourite – the Ninja Stars games arena with Tag Active scoring, designed to be fun for the whole family to enjoy together. Face a series of events and obstacles to reach the top of the leader-board. Just make sure you tag your wristband on the illuminated beacons to score points as you go! This is an exhilarating challenge for everyone from 6 years.

Then hop onto 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.

Visitors will also love to ride the Cosmic Typhoon coaster, whizz down the huge Gravity Rider donut slide, run around the maze (don’t miss the challenges hidden within), bump around on the Droid Destroyer dodgems, and jump for joy on the huge Jumping Jupiters outdoor bouncing pillows. Little ones will love lots here, including the Little Stars soft-play centre dedicated to those aged 0-6, the Cosmic Caterpillar mini coaster, the Bouncing Balloon Room and the mini-train. To wind down, enjoy a stunning Bird of Prey show from the residents of the North Devon Bird of Prey Centre, paint some pottery, play a game of mini-golf and visit the very popular Sci-Fi exhibit (“From Darth Vader to Daleks”).

PLUS The Magic of Christmas is coming to the Milky Way on the 9th & 10th and 16th to 23rd December.  Journey through the magical snowy forest to Buzzlewicks Elf Emporium in The Old Barn, where all children will get to meet Buzzlewick the Elf and friends, have a go a gingerbread decorating, write a letter to Santa and make reindeer food. Then there’ll be the chance to be invited into Santa’s cosy Christmas Cottage to chat to the jolly fella himself and then collect your special festive gift!

First time we have been here. Staff very friendly and lots to do for all ages. We had numerous goes on different rides with no queuing. Birds of prey centre very good. We spent 7 hours here and the children didn’t want to leave.

Fantastic location. The whole family had a ball. The staff were all brilliant and couldn’t do enough for us. Highly recommended.

Darren R

The milky way far exceeded our expectations! We had very interchangeable weather during our Devon holiday so finding this place was just what we needed. The variety of activities absolutely suited our 18 month old and 3.5 Yr old from the little stars soft play area to the roller coaster, train ride, maze, giant slides, toddler world, dodgems, Merlin the magician (hilarious) … It goes on… Being honest, it doesn’t look like much when you first walk in and it was very quiet as we went out of season but that worked very much in our favour! Also before we knew it was closing time and we had to drag the kids out, literally, through the laden gift shop… We received our voucher to return half price within the year and two days later we were back again! We thought we would pass the time in the morning and head to the beach in the afternoon – nope! Once again a full day at the milky-way and we did loads of stuff we hadn’t tried the time before like archery, took in the outside birds of prey show (Dave the falconer is amazing and provides a very informative and entertaining show!) and the bouncy trampolines… Hilarious for the whole family! I feel in peak times the atmosphere would be a bit better but we much preferred having the run of the place and no queues! The staff were so friendly and clearly made an effort to help at any point! Plus – toilets stayed clean all day! So happy about this! 🙂 Definitely recommend and four thumbs up from us!


This was a great day out, even for our teenagers. They really enjoyed themselves with archery, painting, roller coasting, dodgems, and lots more! The food was good too. We have to come back one day because we missed the show with the birds of prey 🙂

absolutely fantastic fun day out for all the family!! we visited on a drizzly day last week and was great as so much was under cover. our small children (3 & 18 months) loved the smaller soft play and the balloon area. Whilst us adults had fun with them in the bigger soft play area too! Nice food in the cafe, a little expensive tho. We will definitely be back whatever the weather there is so much to do!! and so much fun ☺
