  • We've been to this amusement park and zoo more than a dozen times and I highly recommend it for those with children 2-4 years. It's been update over the last few years. There are lots of amusement...

  • Way over-priced with what is offered for those visiting without children. It seems that two-thirds of the property is devoted to a playground, while the last third is the zoo. On the day my husband...

  • Great day out with grandchildren aged 2 through to 8. Very reasonable price. Plenty of ride options available albeit some with height restrictions although there is what is called a yellow zone when the child must be accompanied by an adult. (Great excuse for Papa to take the ride) Picnic areas throughout the park so bring your own Food and enjoy. Animals more visible early in the day.
  • Used to come here as a kid 50 years ago and it has upgraded for the better! Love the new bridge entrance and ticket prices are great for what you get. All the animals and all the rides are included. Plenty of grass and shady spots to relax and eat a picnic lunch. The bread basket offers sandwiches, pizza burgers and drinks. They still have the old maze and crooked house. Danny the dinosaur will take you around the park too! If you like playgrounds there are plenty around the park for all ages! The huge wooden playground will keep your little animals entertained for hours! Definitely recommend for families! Thursdays, once a month they have senior walking too!
