Great place to take children for a fun day out. It is well laid out and the various plants amongst the dinosaurs in the garden areas are delightful.

Not very impressed at all. The Dino park has limited things for the children and definitely had nothing for older kids

My grandsons aged 11and 9 love Dino park and ask to come on a regular basis to look for differences. We all have a great time.

1st off I'll apologise that I never wrote this review earlier as we visited back at the end of September. I'll admit I was a bit sceptical about the park, it looked small and lacking in features, however I was pleasantly surprised.

Very good afternoon. My kids loved it (aged 8 and 3). Very friendly staff. Reasonably priced. You need it to be a dry day to get the best out of the park. Would definitely visit again if we are in the area.
