A first hand account of what you can do in Pembrokeshire with a teenager. Written by: Gill Peterson-Flynn
We'd planned our yearly trip to Pembrokeshire and then realised our son was suddenly a teenager and all the things we had done before on our holidays to West Wales would now be 'b o r i n g' to our 13 year old son, time for a rethink...
I figured he'd grown out of Folly Farm, although I have to say it is one of the best days out in the UK for any age! There are farm animals, zoo, Europe's largest indoor funfair, an excellent indoor play area, Digger Park, Go Karts and so much more, a fun filled day for a fantastic price!
So we decided on Oakwood Theme Park, not far from Narberth in Pembrokeshire. Our grumpy teenager was actually quite excited when we pulled into the car park and he could see the tops of the rides poking out, I think his dad suddenly reverted back to a teenager as well,,, I wasn't quite so sure!
First the Ghost Train, easy, I can do that one, yep, it was fine!
Secondly, the very traditional looking wooden Roller Coaster, seemed tame enough so we got into the queue and waited a while, as we came round the corner it didn't look too bad but then we saw the name, 'Megafobia', the name didn't suggest tame! I was right, the two boys loved it, I didn't open my eyes, and it certainly was deceiving!
