Hi Michael M, Thank you for your review, I’m sorry you felt the experience was overpriced but will pass your thanks on to Aaron. I think it’s fair to point out that by the time Groupon take their cut and we have paid all costs...More

Some of the animals were roaming around freely which I am sure they weren't supposed to be when there are young children there, but none of the staff were bothered. It wasn't really very clear where you could and couldn't walk. Overall not a very...More
