“The best ever!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Beautifull place to bring your kids and grandchildren! Have been going there for 40 years, with or without kids. Vinter is nice and quiet, and you can go for long walks.

“Worth what it costs”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Dyreparken is quite expensive, but it is worth all the money. All the animals in their beautiful surroundings and very interesting presentations given by the staff, will give the whole family a great experience. The Children will also love Kardemomme by and Kaptein Sabeltann. If you buy a combined ticket so that you can also visit the Waterpark, then the trip will be perfect. One day is not enough to go through all - you need at least two days.

“Bad weather, still a great day”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

We took our soon to be 2 year old here for a day in July. There was a lot of people even though it was a gray and somewhat rainy day. We arrived at 10.00, when the doors open and already the two closest parking zones were full. Everything was organized quite well, even the long queues at the gate ( they could have been shorter with a few simple improvements however).
The really great thing about the park is that there is so much more than animals, lots of activities and playgrounds for the kids etc.

Make sure you go to a few of the "animal presentations", especially the tigers and gepards.

And note that buying online tickets surely does not guarantee you the shortest line and if you buy parking online there is a quite bad solution where you have to bring a print of the receipt yourself to place in your car.
