Is the park suitable for a 9 year old? A lot of the reviews are from families with younger children and I don't want to pay £40 for our family if our daughter would get border. Thanks

I think your daughter might get bored, there's not much to see for a girl that age, my 3 y old son is train mad, if he wasn't into trains we wouldn't even take him there.
