We enjoyed another visit to Newquay zoo. It is a well kept, attractive zoo and has lovely interesting animals. We, as a family, especially loved the babies otters this time (so cute!)
There are always new things and zoos are expensive to run but I do think the pricing policy is going a bit mad. Firstly as a family with 3 children I am always irritated by 2+2 family tickets. We had our niece with us as well so a family ticket plus 2 children added up. On the last 2 visits we have been charged gift aid without being asked and had to be reimbursed (holding up the queue). Then inside I object strongly to potential additional costs for feeding the animals such as 50p a fish for the penguins and £1 for the meerkats. It is no fun as parents paying £50 to get in to then have your children pester you for more money on and off during your visit.
I would say though that the cafes are not badly priced if a limited choice although we always take a picnic and just buy coffee (£1.75 for Americano).
Well worth a visit though and we spent 3-4 hours there on a cold but sunny day with plenty of animals to see.
