This place is very hilly, with lots of people struggling up/down hills with pushchairs. Lots of animals to see and lovely areas to walk. A few areas to grab food to. If your in the area defiantly have a day here.

I was surprised by how much I actually enjoyed my day there. I originally thought it was designed fro children, but actually seeing all the animals, watching the shows and exploring the park was really fun and enjoyable! Really recommend checking it out!

My dinosaur mad son absolutely loved it here. There is plenty to see and a great selection of animals, we especially enjoyed the sealion show. Very hilly though so not ideal for people who struggle to walk or for pushchairs.

Great mixture of things to do and see. Kids really enjoyed the variety, animals, dinosaurs, sea lion show, rides and soft play, made even better having to find pumpkins for a prize. Only negative is the steep inclines/declines around the park.
