“Good day out with the children if the weather's good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

The kids loved finding all the stamps on their card and petting the animals in the farm area. There a maze and lots of open spaces for the kids to run around. Great day out if the weather's good but not so much to do in the rain.

“half price as woodland is flooded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had a voucher from a country magazine so took that and then when we turned up it was half price as half the attraction was closed due to flooded woods so we paid just over £5. Pleasant day, 6 mazes with facts dotted around inside them and stamp at centre but some were stiff to use. English hedge maze most difficult for us. keep hold of little ones because these mazes are tricky. Good play ground near mazes and plenty of picnic areas outside, even in treetop walk. Just right of decked area at the back of visitor centre great picnic area with huge tables and umbrella, Next to it was slide and sand pit and outdoor connect four. lakes, ducks. woodland walk, mazes plus reasonalby priced indoor gift shop and small visitor centre, bits on eco, flowers, seed dispersal, microscopes, computer touch screen games/puzzles, video pod, scents of different flowers and spices. Had teripin tank and fish tank. Was surprised that this outing was so good.

“Excellent, cheap family day out.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Visted plantasia a few times and have always been pleased. The site is located next to dobbies garden centre. There is an indoor interactive exibition with videos about nature and touch screen games for kids. The mazes are huge and offer hours of entertainment. The woodland was muddy but with the wet summer what do people expect, its an outdoor attraction, if people walk round in silly footwear is their own fault. They have a lovely selection of farm animals, all very friendly. Staff were all polite and helpful. The only downsides were no stamp cards (receptionist did say they was a delay in delivry) and some parts were a little shabby and not working, but there were two guys working in the interactive section fixing various things. Go prepared and it will not disappoint.

“Great mazes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

A great family day out. There are quite a few big mazes and a couple of smaller ones. Great fun. The rest of the grounds are good too; especially the tree top walk. Some bits could do with some tlc. Big shops very close by but you may not get time to do them and the mazes.

“Great for over 3's half day out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

We took out son who is 2 to plantasia and he did enjoy the mazes but they are large and everyone can get a bit tired. The play ground is great for the kids and is large enough for quite a few to climb on. The indoor science centre; in contrast to previous comments were full of life and great to show children and adults alike - smell boxes, feel boxes etc. only 3 negatives, the mazes were becoming over grown and in some sections dead which could be due to the time of year, secondly some of the talking flowers were not working, and third the indoor centre needs more game computers so multiple people can enjoy. BUT this said a great half day all round.
