Visited here for a birthday treat for my little one. Park is only 10 mins from home. I brought my eldest when he was small at the point is was called brockholes farm . A few farmyard animals. Now it has everything and keeps getting better and better. Yes it seems expensive but when you see the development and investment... More

We took 2 small children for the day and was expecting to see some animals fairly close....wrong. The animals that weren't hiding away were so far away and behind 3 fences it was difficult to see anything. The polar bears looked miserable and filthy. The park looks half finished with building works going on. Extortionate prices for food and drink... More

We live in Doncaster and have become 'friends' of the park. It is a great place to visit and the polar bears are stunning, as are many other animals. It is good to see animals given the space they get here. There is a nice restaurant as well as the obligatory snack outlets. A small gripe; they need to get... More

This place has changed loads since we visited about 2 years ago. Lots more animals and well laid out. We had with us our daughters (5&8) and by the time we had gone round the park, which takes a good few hours to appreciate everything, my youngest was knackered! That being said, there are plenty of places selling refreshments and... More

Myself and a friend visited here yesterday (21.02.17) with two children aged 6 and 4. After a rather long walk from the car to the entry the children really enjoyed it but I found it very disappointing. £56 to get in, a further £30 in the cafe and then £12 in the gift shop and we were only there for...

We have an annual pass and pop in all the time. The park is really good. However the cafeterias do let the park down with insufficient seating and extremely long queues. We waited 40 minutes just to get burger and chips as no other eatery was open. Being half term you would have thought they would have catered better. Also... More

We don't live in the area but try and visit once a year. The park is very spacious and the animals seem to have lots of space. I love polar bears so as they have 4 I am very lucky. Watched the polar bears eating , playing so they seem contented and happy. Park is alway tidy. Quite a bit... More

Despite living in Yorkshire for a while, only recently became aware of this place. I found it to be an excellent day out. As its a newer attraction the quality and space of the animal enclosures were very impressive - felt so much nicer that Chester Zoo for example with the Lions having a well landscaped environment but equally good...
