Crealy Adventure Park & Resort is based at Clyst St. Mary on the outskirts of Exeter. Crealy was created in 1989, with the stated aim of recreating a country childhood. The Devon park was opened first, followed by the Cornish property.
Initially purchased as a farm from Cambridge University Crealy now has over 60 rides, attractions and live shows, included in these are thrill rides, roller-coasters and splashing water rides, indoor play zones and outdoor adventure play areas. There is also the Animal Barn which houses zoo and farm animals.
Winner of ‘Family attraction of the year’ for 3 years in a row.[when?]
In Spring 2012, Crealy Meadows Caravan and Camping park was launched adjacent to Devon's Crealy. While a separate entity from the Adventure Park, Crealy Meadows shares similar corporate branding, including cross promotion with Buddy and Blossom bear.

Terry Sandling bought Trelow Farm in Tredinnick and opened the property to the public in 1989 as The Shire Horse Centre. The property was then sold to Crealy Great Adventure Parks in 2004. Crealy has continued to invest in the park in terms of rides, shows and staff. The park attracts approximately 200,000 people a year.
Major rides include Morgawr, The Beast, Raging River and Thunder Falls. Crealy targets younger children up to the age of six. Swampy and Dina are resident characters.
