Sundown Adventureland, located in Rampton, near Retford, has claimed for the second time an award celebrating it being one of the ‘best of the best’.

Tripadvisor, a travel guidance platform, recently announced its Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best Awards 2022, which analyses the quality and quantity of reviews and ratings over the past year from real travellers using Tripadvisor.

The ‘Best of the Best’ award is the highest honour achievable and celebrates businesses that consistently deliver exceptional experiences to visitors.

Sundown Adventureland has been awarded Tripadvisor's 'best of the best' award for the second year running.

Debora Griffin, park director at Sundown Adventureland said: “Winning an award is always brilliant, but it feels even more special when our visitors and loyal fanbase make it happen – especially for the second year running.

“We can’t thank our visitors enough for continuing to leave us glowing reviews and highlighting what they love about our family-owned park.”

The achievement builds on Sundown Adventureland’s successful summer after the opening of its new overnight accommodation, Wild Acre Village.

Debora added: “The award is a testament to our loyal fan base that we’ve built up over 50 years, with my grandparents remaining passionate about consistent and high-quality customer service throughout their careers.

"We love seeing generations of families returning time after time and feel privileged that they choose Sundown as a location to make memories.”
