I haven't been there, so I can't comment on it. I'd go to Alton Towers, to be honest.

Here are some websites though:

I went there a couple of years back, and it was actually rather good. The Shockwave stand up rollercoaster is great - albeit rather short - but it does manage to pack in 4 inversions in about 20 seconds. There is a run-of -the-mill looping coaster, identical to the one on Brighton Pier (only themed) and there is a crappy kid's coaster called the Buffallo. They have a Pirates of the Carribean clone that is not bad, and a ghost house thing which ends with a haunted swing (a bit like the new Hex ride at Alton Towers.) There's a lifeboat ride which ends with a backwards drop. And, I do believe that they are introducing a freefall tower where the riders STAND and are then tilted forward before the drop.
Oh, there's also a zooand quite a few "flat" rides.
Entry is quite cheap -and then you buy a wristband if you want to do the rides.
It's a not bad alternative to Alton towers - and the queues are shorter.
Hope that's a help. I give it a 7 out of 10.
