My partner and I took my son (3 y/o) to the attraction and found it brilliant. All the dinosaurs come to life on the hour every hour. It can be a bit of a mission when walking around as there are some steep bits especially when hunting for the dinosaurs. Please don't let this put you off though. With a... More

All the animals were happy and visible, meerkats were fab and the monkeys and other primates were brilliant to see and to hear!! Our fav has... More

We came just for a day out with a 5 year old who loves dinosaurs and a 19 month old. All of us really enjoyed the day, especially the sea lion shows. Lots to do and see. only down side which didn't bother us just added to the adventure was the very steep hills. Think it is reasonably priced and... More

I went with some trepidation as I felt it was for children only and I'm a fan of longleat. But to be fair it was very good.The keepers were very informative.

Luckily we read all the reviews first and knew that we'd have some steep hills to deal with. Even with the "heads up" it was still a bit of a surprise, but despite that, we had a lovely day out with the kids. They enjoyed the animals and especially the animatronic dinos that they knew from Bristol Zoo. The sea... More

Lots to do, reasonable price and good for all ages. Especially liked the train and the evolution theme. Nice, friendly staff and good food choice and not too bad a price. Loved the Sea lions!:) Parking for blue Badge holders is at entrance which is good as you park at different levels so if mobility is an issue, bear this... More

Brilliant fun at the park. My 16 month old daughter loved it. Although the hills are steep, unless you are really unfit or have a mobility problem, you can get round easily. The staff were helpful and the food available was good quality. Don't miss the dinosaurs (they wake up every hour)

Kids loved it - we thought it was a slightly odd mix, but enjoyed the day. Great that you can get in with the meerkats, as long as your toes are covered.

We visited the park on a sunny July day with 2 toddlers and got in for half price as had a voucher making this a good value option, its a brilliant day out. The climbs can be a tad exhausting for the children but the scenery and wildlife more than makes up for this and the little train ride/water experience... More

A little scared to review after reading the parks responses to some of the negative posts. Was looking forward to seeing dinosaurs and other animals. We thought that since the leaflet said wildlife park that the set up would be large with plenty of space in the enclosures, but found the set up to be more zoo like with, in... More
