Where to start!!! We were unsure of the weather but decided to continue with our plans and to head to the wildlife and dinosaur park!! We had a great start to the day by visiting the meerkats which despite the drizzle was well worth it and great how we could all get so close!!! The keepers were very helpful and... More

This is my second visit to this park in last 3 years and it just keeps getting better and better :) Dedicated keepers and well kept animals and enclosures, lots of enrichment for the animals which was nice to see, we went in with the meerkats early on (which we all loved) and then we did most if the talks...

We went here on 17th Feb, what a total disappointment and complete waste of money. We have a 7 year son and 5 year old daughter. Our son is Dinosaur mad, and was so upset with the Dinosaurs that he saw, all he kept saying was "this is not like the leaflet or the website mummy" what could we say.... More

We went here on thursday and unfortunately the weather wasn't great. Although I don't think this would have made the attraction any better. There was no need to have dinosaurs in this park, it added nothing to the experience. They are busy building a new kids play area although the animals and park is in need of desperate improvement before... More

I can't believe this place had so many good reviews!!! Over priced rubbish. Watched the sea lion show but the mic constantly cut out who we couldn't hear most of it The place was mess and the enclosures were to small for the animals. The cafe was shocking and the museum was tiny!! Don't waste your money on this place

Very dated! Half of the attractions were either damaged or not working at all. There is only one very small soft play area for toddlers and that is it! The older children have nothing to play on or interact with. Terribly steep hills is not suitable at all for anyone with any difficulties walking. Lack of bins and benches and... More

Omitted quite a few things on your review haven't you! Your complaint (which was made after having been here for four hours) was that we had not got a playzone for older children (although we are currently building one which we should finish by Easter). You must have been aware that we hadn't currently got one as members of your... More

Are experience today was awful. Lots of things were not working or broken nothing to keep the children entertained a lot of money for a long walk. The directors/ owners were very rude and aggressive appalling customer service. Certainly will not be returning or recommending. Such a shame.

We visit this park everytime we are in Devon which is twice a year and we have always been blessed with good weather. we love the sealion show especially it is very entertaining. there is plenty to do and see and lots of choice for food whether sitting in or out. The kids love the dinasaur show.
