Visited on a weekend, really interesting if you're a train fanatic. Worthwhile visiting if you're in or around Southport for sure.

I am afraid I don’t know. I was a visitor to the area. Ask at the tourist office I suggest.

I went yesterday and did not notice any sit on rides, however do not let that put you off visiting. My four year old and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
