We visited this place on the sunday and found the place to be superb value and beautifully laid out, the sea lion show is a joy to see and the only disappointment was the insect house apart from that loved the place and would happily return

Went here with my family for a day out on our 3 day break in Blackpool. What we found is that having arrived there at opening time we started to run short of time towards the end as there was so much to look at and do. Like anything you can just run round the place and get from it... More

We visited with our young children on 28th August and got there before the Zoo opened at 10am. We had already pre-booked and printed our tickets out and paid the £2.50 for parking which wasn't too bad. The zoo was quite nice and the children enjoyed it a lot, but from an adult view point some of the enclosures felt... More

Firstly buy your tickets at the tourist information, it is cheaper and quicker to get in the zoo than standing in the massive queues at the entrance. There is a separate queue for internet bookings (done at Tourist Info) and pre bought tickets. we got bus in town using our bus passes and paid for children £1 each way, but... More

Went here last week with 6 adults 1 teenager and 4 little kids in our party. Thought it was good value for money really as we spent the whole day here without getting bored. Hadn't been here in about 8 years and a lot of improvements have been made in that time. There was a good variety of animals on... More

Large range of animals and all look well cared for. Lovely little children's farm and small train journey can be taken. We spent about 4 hours there. Food was quite expensive on top of admission price.

I visited for the day with my 4 year old daughter and husband. Whilst we enjoyed the day I felt like at every opportunity there was a way of swindling more cash out of you. £2.50 for car parking £10 to be able to feed giraffes, sealions, birds if prey etc & the biggest rip off I felt was £12.50...

Very disappointed with overall place, sea lion show advertised as best in UK, if that is the case then the others must be pretty awful, glad we got it at discount price, beavers in smelly green water and one was limping quite badly. Despite living in Blackpool we won't be going back anytime soon
