Tree top adventure was amazing. My 10 year old grandson loved it. Whole zoo is very compact and yet not crowded. All animals easily accessible and timed displays first class.

Very little wild animals to see, you will find directions to the zoo showing elephants but when you get there none to be seen, and for what you pay to get in, there should be a lot more to see, Have recently been to Chester Zoo and a completely different place, loads more large wild animals compared to what I would call a large pet shop in Bristol and you need to take a loan out to pay to get in.

Had a good day at the zoo photographing the animals - able to get pretty close to most. Plenty of variety and a good day out

I love this zoo. I have two under 2 and it is a great place to entertain the eldest for a entire morning. They are constantly looking to improve the attraction so you will find works going on but this is good for the zoo and has minimal intrusion. Particularly love the gorilla house and meerkats!

Not sure if I go for for the kids or me....

Anyway, there is a great outdoor space for kids with swings etc. When we visited in the summer we really enjoyed the outdoor water play area, in fact I don't think we saw any animals on one visit!

If you are a local in Bristol this is well worth the membership as it is excellent come rain or shine. We've been when it's raining and enjoyed splashing in puddles but there is plenty of overhead protection so you are rarely out in the elements if you plan your visit in advance.

Food is reasonably priced for a big attraction and toilets pretty good too. They could do with dedicated baby change area considering it is a family attraction.

If you have children aged 3 and under you only need an adult membership whereas without it you'd have to pay for children aged over 2 as well as yourself for each visit.

i must admit to being an annual member and we attend the zoo often with our 6 year old grandson. for £100 for three of us its excellent value. there is always something going on we just pop in for a couple of hours if you live locally and have regular babysitting duties its a real good fall back - even in the rain!!!!
