Zoos are not cheap, entrance or food and drink when in there. By no means is it a cheap day out. We had fun, my little boy enjoyed it. Sea lion show is brill. Blackpool is one of the better Zoos. Yes I would go back but I wouldn't rush. I've been and seen everything. Overall nice day out

We visited on 26-08-15 and what a fantastic day we had. We spent 6 hrs in the zoo with our 3 year old son. We also have a young baby too and the Zoo was extremely pram friendly. We enjoyed all the feeding times and shows, the miniature train and the farm area too! The zoo is kept very clean... More

My favourite part was the sea lion show. As they did a talk and show there was a 2 month old just swimming around minding his own business, so nice to watch. The food situation was fairly poor, what you would expect from this type of place fast food etc. I would recommend taking a picnic or such. Especially for... More

Well laid out, plenty of animals to keep the children's interest during the day. Regular displays during the day with a chance to talk to the keepers.

We all had a great day and seemed to enjoy this more than the other zoo's we had visited. We saw all the animals, which was great, as, when we have visited other zoo's before, lots... More

This is a smashing zoo nice and clean and good variety of shows and talks and plenty to keep young children entertained. We visited with grandchildren aged 6 and 3 and it turned out to be a really hot day., but animals all seemed happy and not just sat curled up in cages as can happen in some zoos, it... More
