The Milky Way Devon wins Tripadvisor Award
  • The Milky Way Adventure Park in North Devon has been awarded TripAdvisor’s most prestigious accolade for the 5th year running – the Travellers’ Choice™ award, presented annually to the top 1% of businesses across select categories.

TripAdvisor has also named The Milky Way as the 2nd best Amusement Park in the UK and 10th best in Europe, according to reviewers. The family-run park has been placed just below Paulton Park, but above big names such as Alton Towers and Blackpool Pleasure Beach. 91% of people who review The Milky Way on TripAdvisor rate it as Very Good or Excellent.

“We’re thrilled to again be recognised as one of the best days out in the country,” says partner Tara Stanbury. “The list highlights those parks that offer high levels of visitor satisfaction, and a great-value day out, so it’s fantastic to be included.”

“We’re different to some of the others on the list – a bit smaller, and we don’t have the white-knuckle rides and huge crowds and queues. But we do constantly work on being the best we can be,” says Tara.

“This year we added Ziggy’s Blast Quest – an interactive target shooting ride that’s proving hugely popular with all ages, and last year we built the Gravity Rider, a huge outdoor donut slide. We’ve also just launched new gluten-free, nut-free, egg-free and dairy-free menus.

“We focus on having friendly, helpful staff and a providing a good family day out – and we’re so pleased that our visitors on Trip Advisor think we’ve done a good job.”
