“visit to zoo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

very well liked not usually a zoo person but really enjoyed it, fairly easy to get to just take a bus and they drop you off with about 500 metres to walk

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.
