I went here many months ago pre trip advisor but I felt that I must make mention of the fabulous time we had. When my granson gets older I'll bring him as well. Looking forward to it.

Great zoological park, we really couldn't fault it in any way. We arrived a bit late in the day & were kindly let in at 50% discount as we would only have an hour or so to walk around. All the staff we met were friendly and eager to help us. Ideal for families, yes it does have some steep... More

Visited here with our two yr and 14 yr old and they both ( and us) loved it there is loads to see and do. The park has wild animals and brilliant animatronic dinosaurs plus lots of attractions like "the tomb" and bug zone we would highly recommend a visit if you are holidaying in the area but it is...

This attraction had some lovely things to see, however, it is a very steep site and as we visited on a day where it showered all day, we felt as if we were going to slip over whilst walking round. We didn't, which was lucky as it would have hurt on the concrete paths. That said, the weather did not... More

Had the most amazing day here, lots of laughter and fun. It does have steep inclines , we had a buggy so had to really push in places but that's just how it is, why let that spoil your day, laugh at it. Sealion show was really good along with the other animal talks. For the entry price paid I... More

I visited the park with my husband and four year old. Although it is quite expensive, just under £40 for the three of us! We did have a fun packed day. The dinosaurs are great fun and my four yr old really enjoyed searching for them. You can go in the meerkat enclosure and watch them running around your feet... More

The Park is situated in a valley and is a bit Hilly but there is lots to see and do, the animals are well looked after, the keepers are knowledgeable and very friendly. the dinosaurs were friendly too. I would recommend this for all ages.

Took the children for a day out there and we followed the so called flat route as my wife suffers with knee problems and can't do hills very well. It was ok to start with but soon became very steep in places and also the route was not wheelchair friendly at all. That said it was any enjoyable day out... More

If I wanted to climb hills I would go to Dartmoor, overpriced and frankly not enough to do, most of the animatronics weren't working. No lions to be seen hill climbs to rival the brecons. Just a few of the disappointments in the park. Which unfortunately is most of the park. A plus side was seeing the sea lions, although... More

If you are going to test something see it in the rain, which we did. The park is a mixture of good and tacky. The good is the natural park set in the valley which you walk up and down through seeing animals and replica dinosaurs. Unfortunately, I was with my mother who was in a wheelchair and so I... More
