This was a great experience. Beautiful, manicured grounds with a Panorama of green pastures and woods. The horse-drawn wagon ride was very pleasant and relaxing. Even the walk through the "domestic zoo" was quite enjoyable. The horse shoe was very good with up close views of great riders and beautiful horses. A fun time. Also, the lunch was delicious and bountiful

Great venue, very well organised. Only negative was the food and drink prices.
Expensive and terrible quality. Hungarian streetfood is great and cheap, how can you get it so wrong at the race. Stale rolls. Dry meat. Wilting salad. Warm beer. Do not buy any food here. You'll regret it.

Bear Farm

Reviewed By IMNash - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

The park has a great concept, bears are free to walk around, you can feed them with honey. Many small details are frustrating: when you buy your parking ticket from the booth, you HAVE to get out of your car, no way to reach it, the restaurant and the toilets are 15 years old or so, you don't want your little kid to use them, also the general look and feel is worn out, a bit even sad.

Royal Palace of Godollo

Reviewed By Gabriel H - Bellaire, Texas, United States

This "hunting lodge" was initially built by the Grassalkovich family around 1730, although it kept growing with the addition of new wings, rooms, Gardens, etc. Today, it is a massive palace with 8 wings over two floors, and furnished with 18th and 19th century furniture and decorative items. There is a wonderful chapel, a music hall and a host of photographs of the family, as well as the Hapsburg dynasty. Empress Maria Teresa visited around 1751 and the Hungarian patriot Lajos Kossuth also stayed here for some time. The palace was purchased by the Hungarian government in 1867 and converted into a royal residence, given as a coronation gift to Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Elisabeth (Sissy). Eventually it became the favorite refuge of the Empress, who enjoyed being away from the hustle-bustle of the Viennese court. The castle was devastated during WWII, especially by the occupation by Russian troops, but it was fully restored by 1995 and today it stands in its full glory. It has a very nice coffee shop and gift shop.

It was amazing to finally experience F1 grand prix in person. Great track, splendid weather, too bad the race wasn't more interesting. But the whole experience was top-notch. Especially the storming of the track after the race. Amazing.

Aquarena

Reviewed By Anid J

We visited Aqua park on a Saturday 18th if June, 2016. Cost you 6000ft/ adult and 4500ft/ student to get in. Once inside you can.load money onto your wristband and start spending. The changing rooms are spacious and enough cubicles but the first problem presents that you can't use your wristband to purchase a locker but have to attend the cashier again to buy another type.of ticket to store your valuables. We waited 20 minutes at the female changeroom lines before realizing no one is coming, so walked to the guy's changing room. No biggie but avoidable...
The place wasn't the busiest although the weather was perfect. Looked like it was going to be a perfect fun filled day. We also had 6 teenagers, a 7yrs old as well as 2 other adults. Going to the first slide up on.top blue slides did not disappoint. Climbed back again to try " hosszu kaland" an absolute flop...I struggled to make it down to the bottom. The slide is not sliding...had to push myself 3 times to actually make it. Thinking its only me.then finding my boyfriend disappointed at The bottom who tried " kis vakond" ha stage same experience. We had to try all slides getting the same result on.all 3 from that top section. Bizarre slides not sliding. "Szabadeses" is good, snakes are ok. " lassu folyo" again.badly designed was watching the poor staff member trying to.fish out floaties people were getting pushed. Doesn't quite floats as it supposed to. I have bene to many watermarks from Bali waterboom to Vietnam Vin Pearl to Florida, this was by far the poorest joy. Lets forget the disappointing rides. We got thirsty an hungry. Make sure you load lots of cash onto your wristband. Surprise ...not only the entry fee is expensive but the bar ...wait til you get charged 600ft / 4dl of beer ( average pub is 300ft/ 5dl) and once you get served by the training staff and half of the glass is missing make sure you ask.for a full oone poor service again staff in training by otherwise very young staff. Looks like students work the whole place except the food department.
Food: very average quality, no healthy option except a greek salad. Again prepare to.pay and arm and a leg for basics like a serve of chips.of wedges 700ft/ plate. SnitzEl 1500ft, kovaszos uborka 900ft. Hamburger 1100ft, quality is questionable. Service is line style. If you go with teenagers get ready to swipe half your salary in.one go. Ice cream 700ft/ average soft serve. Overall overpriced poor quality food. Definitely not what I expected, the grounds overall look weedy, unattended, fake grass is too hot for kids to.walk on. Spa hardly have pressure. Very different. Go and give it a go and see it for yourself.

World Peace Gong

Reviewed By Manya-ct - Cape Town, South Africa

The town of Godolo is not far out of Budapest. It is also very easy to reach the area by public transport. The gong is special and beautiful, set in a quiet, open public square with a garden section surrounding it. It's very impressive and worth a short visit, if possible.

Hungaroring Kart Center

Hungaroring Kart Centre and its open-air ring were created with an exciting and fast-paced small track in mind, with difficult corners, the sort where future F1 drivers can begin. Come and experience small-scale F1 first hand! Hungaroring Kart Centre is right in the middle of Hungary's one F1 track and now it has state of the art go-karts, just waiting for the right driver to come along.

I found these guys online and contacted them. Roni was really helpful and patient as I was trying to arrange a Bucks party and numbers kept changing.
It really was so much fun and unlike here in Australia they let you overtake, bump a bit and just drive.
They really looked after us and let us work the racing our way.
If you are looking for a great afternoons fun whilst in Budapest this is the place. It's also only about 30 minutes out of town.
Go race guys......

Royal Waiting Hall 1882-2011

Reviewed By Londonsteve56 - London

Most visitors to Godollo come to enjoy the splendid Royal Palace. Lesser known is the beautifully restored royal waiting hall at Godollo railway station. If you've made the effort to come to Godollo to see the castle and have some extra time, a detour to the station is well worthwhile, taking about 20 minutes to walk from the Royal Palace. If you arrive or depart Godollo by train then it's very convenient to pop in (by MAV trains from Budapest Keleti, in other words full size trains run by the national railway company, not to be confused with the HEV trains, which are green commuter trains run by Budapest transport from Ors Vezer tere and stop much closer to the Royal Palace - most visitors to the palace from Budapest will arrive by HEV). For the less mobile, you could also take the HEV from the Palace to the mainline station, although you'll need to buy another ticket and for most people walking makes more sense.
It costs 300 Forints to visit the three Royal waiting rooms, in one of which is a small display about the history of the Royal train and a splendid large scale model of a steam locomotive that used to haul it. The corner of this waiting hall furthest from the main station building also houses an appetising looking coffee shop, although I didn't try it.
