Thrill rides at Loudon Castle include the Twist 'n' Shout rollercoaster, with its enormous loop, The Black Pearl pirate's ship and the Barnstormer, which propels visitors up and down a huge tower. For the family to enjoy together, there are water rides, carousels, Drunken Barrels (similar to a Waltzer) and small rollercoasters. Young children can ride on a tractor around the farm or go on one of many rides specifically aimed at youngsters, such as dodgems, chair-o-planes and a mini pirate ship. 

At Loudon Castle there are always shows scheduled throughout the day. These could be anything from pirate displays to musical children's theatre, encouraging youngsters to dance and sing along.  Ideal for relaxing after all the rides, the shows vary, so contact the estate for detailed information. 

Adults and children alike are encouraged to handle the rare-breed animals at McDougal's farm. There are goats, pigs, rabbits, chickens guinea pigs and more at the petting farm. Children are also allowed to feed some of the creatures at certain times. A pony trek ride (model ponies!) takes children on a tour of the sights of the farm. Here, they can also enjoy take control of a tractor and imagine what life is like working on a farm.   

Around the park there are numerous restaurants and snack kiosks. Toilets, disabled toilets and baby change facilities are also spread around the site. There are several gift shops selling souvenirs. Much of the site is accessible to all, and the park asks that disabled visitors ring ahead for guidance on the best itinerary for their day.
