If you can go off season I really recommend this place. In summer it can get very busy, access through car can be time consuming as the roads in and out are quite narrow, one lane often.
The park is well laid out with lots of wildlife and safari tours. There are also theme park rides for kids from 3 or 4 years old. The restaurants are reasonable and the giftshops have lots to bring back home with you.
There are many shows so if you plan your visit before you arrive you can fit in a lot of activities.

The best exhibits were the pandas. They were eating non-stop or sleeping. Lots of animals to see, though I felt a little sorry for the animals caged up. One chimpanzee in his glass cage looked so fed-up with the onlookers like us, that he started behaving like a mad man.

The bird area was nice. They have a good safari, by train or walking.
I would say that the aquarium section is in dire shape. Sad, very sad.
OK place, but Zoorasia in Yokohama, Tama Zoo and Kakegawa Kachoen as much better places.

Bit sad in places. The polar bear particularly didn't have enough space and seemed to be going mad.
The safari train was cool.
The restaurants were imaginative with animal themed food.
By the end of the day the music that plays on a continual loop was driving us mad!

This place should be shut down. Many of these animals should not be in captivity. The most glaring example of this are the polar bears here which are in cramped conditions that are so bad that the polar bears pace back and forth all day like they have developed catatonic schizophrenia. Because the room they are in is so small they can only walk 7 steps in each direction .

The habitats for the animals at this zoo are much too small and the animals at the welcome centre have nowhere to retreat from the crowds. The elephants were confined to tiny cages and looked depressed. The two polar bears paced endlessly and roared or scratched at the bars. They seemed very upset to be separated from each other. A bald eagle sat listlessly in a small cage with no room to even spread his wings. The monkeys at the welcome centre were chained to posts much too close to the crowds that viewed them. They scratched endlessly at their fur clearly in diress. Our family left in tears. We were devastated at the poor treatment of the animals. These animals were clearly suffering and something needs to be done. Please demand that the owner of this park improves conditions immediately.

Let me see you smile - after two weeks, I still have this song in my mind, that is played non-stop. I also have a very vivid memory of the panda bears which were amazing. We loved taking photos with the lion babies and we enjoyed the safari tour and the aquariums (I thought the polar bear looked quite active and ok). The shows were professional and superb.

We were a bit disappointed that you have to pay extra for so many things (rollercoasters, ferry wheels, etc.) after having already paid a high entrance fee. And as our visit was out of season, some attractions were closed.

Adventure World is an experience so zany. The zoo aspect is downright depressing, with the animals on display seemingly depressed (the polar bear looked like he wished to die and the owl tethered to his cage just seemed to have given up). The best animals were the baby pandas and the red pandas which were obviously well cared for, and the marine animals.

Other than the zoo - there is a giant Ferris wheel, and, hilariously, a roller coaster that flies around all over the place - including near the hippopotamus enclosure. What does a hippopotamus think when it sees a roller coaster, I wonder. Also note the special exhibits - such as Australia World, with kangaroos.

Great outings for children being able to see so many animals from all over the world, tiger, lion, penguin, polar bear & panda, not a big park with only short distance walks between the exhibits.
