A chance for the kids to get their own back on Mum and Dad

Why, where, when?

The building that houses the Pie-O-Matic Factory used to be the old Farm. Here, guests could come and meet many different types of animal, including rabbits, sheep and pigs.

Sadly, due to the Foot and Mouth outbreak in 2001, some of the animals had to be destroyed, and the farm was closed down. It stayed this way until 2003, when the Berry Bish Bash opened, sponsored by Ribena. This sponsorship lasted until the end of the 2006 season, when it was dropped.

As part of the 2014 transformation of Old MacDonald's Farmyard to CBeebies Land, Berry Bish Bash was restyled to its current theme.

But what is it like?

The good thing about this attraction is that the queue line is entirely under cover, so it's a good place to head in bad weather!

After waiting in the cattle-pen style queue, you are let through into the main building in batches. You are given an empty bag with which to collect as many foam balls as you can, which are scattered around the building.

There are lots of different devices around the building, which has a main ground floor area, and stairs leading up to the first floor balconies that surround it. The objective, basically, is to shoot the foam balls at the other guests. There are single-loading guns, or some have barrels next to them which your friends can load tens of balls into, which then allows the gun to fire rapidly in succession. There are also other interesting contraptions which allow the balls to be hurled across the room.

Needless to say, it doesn't hurt when the inevitable happens and you get hit by one!

This is a great family attraction which the kids will love.
