Located near Clovelly in Devon, the Milky Way Adventure Park is a space-themed attraction aimed primarily at younger children. In addition to a small selection of rides, the park is also home to a number of playgrounds and a sports centre offering archery, laser shooting and golf. The Cosmic Typhoon is the largest roller coaster in Devon, hitting a top speed of 40 miles per hour.

Park History

Downland Farm, which hosts the Milky Way, was a dairy and cattle farm until 1984, when its owners decided to transform it into a tourist attraction. Initially, it focused purely on farm exhibits, but gradually evolved into something closer to a traditional theme park. The park is still owned by Trevor Stanbury, who received an MBE in 2008 for his work in supporting North Devon's tourism industry.
