Just to say that the staff were great and the park well organised. My brownies had a fantastic day as part of the 1400 brownies which took part and we would recommend a visit to anyone.

On 21st June almost 1700 Brownies and leaders from Girlguiding Greater London Kent celebrated 100 years of Brownies at Drusilla's. The staff were fantastic and helpful from our initial enquiry to the event itself. The Brownies loved it and very few had ever been before. Quite a few leaders said they ran out of time to do everything and were very impressed with how interactive the park is together with the animal spotter books and zoolympic challenge. The Hello Kitty attraction was very popular with the Brownies. Several leaders have commented on how helpful the Drusilla's staff and volunteers were and that they were all smiling all day. Drusilla's had thought out the parking of our 43 coaches and they were at the far end of the field with a coned off route for the girls to walk down into the park to ensure their safety. A really successful day and one we would definitely like to repeat in a few years time once the current Brownies have moved onto Guides and they have been replaced with a new batch of girls.

What a suprise to see so many brownies all in one place, 45 coaches..! and the park carried on as normal. Good day out and all credit due to the way the park is managed. lets hope they extend it more and further the experience of all those that visit.

My daughter wrote the above on a comment card on our way home (too late to hand it in and the spelling wasn't great). We've been to loads of zoos and theme parks but she told everyone that Drusilla's Park is the best. Her favourite bits were the Hello Kitty area and the huge play areas. We used our Tesco clubcard vouchers to get in so it was great value for money and I didn't mind buying lunch (normally we take a packed lunch to theme parks). The salad bar was fantastic, (better than a Harvester or Pizza Hut) so I had lasagne with salad. It was very reasonably priced (can't remember exactly how much). I'd much rather see small animals in relatively large, well designed enclosures. The animals must be happy because there were lots of babies around including baby beavers which I'd never seen before. The spotter guide and zoolympics book were free and my daughter loved collecting the stamps and we all tried the zoolympic activities. Its very interactive and educational. We stayed there 6 hours and we were never bored. We drove an hour to get there and we'll go there again the next time we are on the mainland (we live on the Isle of Wight)

Found this through leaflets at our haven site hastings and booked tickets online to save a bit of cash. Just take down tickets number and reference number and take that along to the gate and in you go. Loads of animals and interactive bits in the zoo area. Absolutely huge play areas thats gonna keep kids of all ages happy for hours. Even i wanted to get in there on the slides. Really cool thomas the tank engine ride and a hello kitty area with 3 rides. My only downside was that the hello kitty area seems to be more superior than the thomas area and lets be honest Thomas the Tank engine is far cooler than Hello Kitty
