“Wonderful park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

I grew up going to this zoo. It is in my opinion a one of a kind zoo/amusement park that has large natural environment areas for the animals. Their enclosures are so big you are not guaranteed to see all the animals. In the Nordic Wilderness section it's so nice and quiet to walk around, almost like hiking in the forest. It's fantastic for kids, but also really nice for adults. We went there right before high season, so there was not many people there and no lines to any of the attactions.

“Lots to do for the entire family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

Awesome amusementpark, here is something for all ages! I reccomend at least 3 days in the park and waterland, to be able to se most of the attractions. You need at least one day to experience the Zoo, one day in the waterland and one day to re-live your favourites!

“Great Place.............a real fun day to be had here.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Great place, loads of adventures for kids and BIG kids to be had hear...............from a Galleon trip around the lakes to adventure rides..............great day, quite expensive entry but worth a trip, and you can use the 'Hop On- Hop Off' bus from the Cruise terminal. If you get into Kristiansand it's a must for a visit.

“Zoo with much to offer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Kristiansand dyrepark is a fairly large zoo with many different animals and attractions to look at. The park is clean, easily navigated, friendly staff and the animals look happy. In the park you will find the animals one would suspect to find, monkeys, lions, kangaroos, etc.
The park also have different attractions like a big pirate village and ships and more traditional carnival/amusement park games.
In addition to the zoo there is also a water park - extra cost. In the summer time this is nice place to cool down and enjoy the water.
I will be back again!
