“Dissapointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

Bit sad in places. The polar bear particularly didn't have enough space and seemed to be going mad.
The safari train was cool.
The restaurants were imaginative with animal themed food.
By the end of the day the music that plays on a continual loop was driving us mad!

“Trip of a lifetime!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

This was an amazing place. I have concerns about zoox and was worried I would be upset at seeing animals in distress. However this is a really well run breeding and research centre. rather than just a zoo. (The only distressing thing was a bald eagle in a small cage). All other animals seemed to have had their natural habitats recreated and to be well looked after. Seeing the Pandas was out of this world (I was actually in tears, it was so wonderful!). Be warned - they have tours behind the scenes of the Panda area. We were there 5 minutes after opening and this tours were already booked. But the day was still incredible.

“Zany”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

Adventure World is an experience so zany. The zoo aspect is downright depressing, with the animals on display seemingly depressed (the polar bear looked like he wished to die and the owl tethered to his cage just seemed to have given up). The best animals were the baby pandas and the red pandas which were obviously well cared for, and the marine animals.

Other than the zoo - there is a giant Ferris wheel, and, hilariously, a roller coaster that flies around all over the place - including near the hippopotamus enclosure. What does a hippopotamus think when it sees a roller coaster, I wonder. Also note the special exhibits - such as Australia World, with kangaroos.

“Surprisingly Good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2013

Great outings for children being able to see so many animals from all over the world, tiger, lion, penguin, polar bear & panda, not a big park with only short distance walks between the exhibits.

“Large variety of animals and sea creatures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

The best exhibits were the pandas. They were eating non-stop or sleeping. Lots of animals to see, though I felt a little sorry for the animals caged up. One chimpanzee in his glass cage looked so fed-up with the onlookers like us, that he started behaving like a mad man.
