4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Small zoo, nice to take a walk here on a sunny day.But for the size of the park it is a bit expensive.

“Good, but not cheap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Via coupons from McDonalds we got 50% off, so we decided to visit this Aqua Zoo. Don't be mislead: there is more than aquariums! It is a reasonable size park with hunderds of animals like fish, sea lions, pinguins, storks, owls, kangaroos. It is a different set than normal zoo's. In my view a less exciting set. The good thing about the park however is that you can really get close to the animals: stroke a pinguin, see the owls fly in the show, get an eye wink of a fish, have a monkey on your shoulder.
The park is a bit shabby. Only (dirty) toilets in the restaurants and, except the restaurant, not nice places to sit and rest. Happy to see a park like this in this northern region of The Netherlands. Without the discount, I would say that the park is a bit overpriced.

“Park or Zoo?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Don't expect to enter a large zoo with gorilla's, lions and elephants. At first this parc shows a modest face, untill you lose the fast pace of life and simply enjoy a stroll, meeting up with animals here and there, mingling with lots of water based animals and fowl. Sometimes simple things of life or just a jolly walk and intimate encounters with lovely animals and this parc can garantuee just that. Even better when you have young children of grandchildren to take with you. On one of the lakes you can choose a small boat and peddle around. Should keep you busy for at least 2,5 to 3 hours.
