Where are we going today?

Kryal Castle might have been built as a tourist attraction, but it certainly packs a punch when it comes to kids fun, history and learning!

This historic adventure in Victoria is a great way for kids to completely immerse themselves in another time in history. In this case - it's Medieval times! Did you know that Kryal Castle is the country's ONLY Medieval adventure park? Now that's a great claim to fame!

It's a land of medieval adventure, with myth, magic, and fun medieval attractions. Perhaps you want to start your journey by uncovering the legends of the Queen and King, and their lost children. There might even be a dragon involved too.  Navigate the amazingly themed passageways, explore dimly lit chambers, and enjoy the special effects that bring the castle to life!

History is about learning as much as it is about fun, and there are a lot of horrible bits in history, which makes it a bit more exciting for kids. The Torture Dungeon and Museum lets you explore the dark side of history. Certainly not for the faint hearted! Recommended for kids over than 12 years, there is a fascinating collection before you encounter the Dungeon of Doom! Are you brave enough!

Don't worry if you have younger kids, because they can experience the fun and drama as they watch brave knights joust in the grand arena!

In addition, Kryst Castle has village markets, new interactive exhibits and displays, children’s programs and activities, all with a wide age scope and fun for all ability levels.

Before you leave, make sure you try and pull that infamous sword from the stone. Will you be the one to rule the land?

    Kryal was sick.
    I slaughtered a pig with my sword and cooked it's flesh on an open fire pit.
    It was delicious.

    Never imagine that I could live in a castle... It's splendor and delicate, may not large though. On the whole, nice and experience well.

    We, along with our 7 yo son, enjoyed our few hours here today. The 'multimedia' labyrinth at the beginning was good, and we really enjoyed the weapons show and the jousting. Without these live aspects, the experiences offered would be lacking. The Village was nice to wander around and you could see other shows, aimed at different age groups. Thanks to the website, we didn't venture in to the torture display (was aimed at over 12s) and so avoided traumatising the 7 yo. The maze is still there too, and there were other displays and people to talk...Read More

arrived for a midweek overnight stay for a quiet inquisative visit.I booked a KING SUITE on arrival asked if a twin was available instead which there was.I was assured the room was exactly the same size and set up as king but twin beds.The newly renovated room was clean and warm with very comfortable beds,but smaller than expected,the bathroom was HUGE and well presented compared to most motel type rooms but delivered little,the bathroom was freezing (no heating )the toilet seemed very small,the shower looks the part but is a joke,little water pressure,a chase the water shower head and more water ran outside of the shower than down the drain,the towels at least the ones i used were threadbare and frayed,
Being 10 mins out of town (thats fine) i expected a peacefull midweek stay and good nights sleep,however there must have been a venue that night and from 6pm all that could be heard was the music from the venue,although it didnt go on till late, the room i was in was opposite a bank of heatpump water heaters that droned all night arghhhhhh.The tv reception was great, as was the tv but offered only free tv,No food facilities are available midweek,for the tarrif charged, a free continental breakfast or even self made toast and cornflakes would make the visit more acceptable.Parking is disgusting, the day i arrived it was raining and suite guest parking area was muddy,the whole parking area needs to be sealed and landscaped to be inviting,you cant park outside your room/suite and the walk to them is considerable with baggage,especially in Ballarat weather.we were allowed to roam the castle whilst closed,gave the impression of a rundown theme park in desperate need of a revamp and landscape development,looked like WORK IN PROGRESS.
I got the impression that this venue is more for weddings,birthdays and conference than O/N stays and travelers are just bums on seats/beds.the staff are great but can only work with what they have got.
TO sum this location up- it does not deliver the theme it portrays,the rooms are just motel rooms with pointed doors,the midweek tarriffs far too high for little facilities and much better equally comfortable good value accomodation is available in town with far more facilities.although our stay was pleasant we wont be returning in the foreseable.NEEDS WORK.

The maze is still there too, and there were other displays and people to talk to as well. We saw a birthday party group in full swing and the kids looked like they were having fun too. I think we would have been hard pressed to spend more of the day there, so would recommend this as a do-able family day trip.
