Really enjoyable day out, my three year old loved seeing the dinosaurs, the baby enjoyed the leafy walk around the valley of dinosaurs and as adults it was great to watch the sea lion show!! We had a half price adult entry voucher, so for us it was well worth the money! It was a shame the train wasn't running... More

We felt the park was well kept. There were a good variety of animals to see and they seemed well looked after by the staff. The grounds are very hilly with steep paths in places. We were able to access all areas with our buggy, but it was difficult in places. The cafe was average, a bit run down and... More

Our son had his 4th birthday party in the play area yesterday and we genuinely have nothing but praise for the dinosaur park . The party area was decorated with a dinosaur theme , the decorations were good quality and the whole place was spotless . They catered for 19 children between the ages of 18 months and 8 years...

Over priced and lacking, needs more to see, it's ok for a few hours but then what? A few animals dotted around, a few Dinis too, and a little train that you pay extra for? However for a 4 minute ride it was super fun!!! Best bit of the day lol Staff miserable for zoo workers, why so sad? Oh... More

This place cannot survive much longer, came here five years ago and were signs up saying under new management and that the place was going to be updated over time, we'll five years later it is even more run down, and the signs have gone, lots of enclosures have signs saying closed due to redevelopment, LIE, the staff serving in...

We mainly visited for the wolves and the dinosaurs but was impressed by the... More

I have visited here countless times and the wildlife park has never disappointed me. The sealions in particular are amazing to watch! However the dinosaurs have really declined in recent years they used to be well kept and moved about but now they either look really tatty or seemed to be misaplced - fir instace the dinosaurs used to be...

Nice zoo just outside of Woolacombe. Not sure it's quite worth the price as isn't very big and a lot of the enclosures didn't have animals in. But a nice was to spend a few hours with the family

Had a lovely day out Se of the dinosaurs looked a bit shabby and it would be nice if on the future they invested a bit more in the park to make it extra special. The walks through the dense undergrowth could be made a little more surprising & exciting Very steep (which really can't be helped as it is... More

This place is great, there were quite a few families and couples and all seemed to be really enjoying themselves - even though it was only 10:45 am. The staff are really friendly and knowledgeable about all aspects of the place. There are several refreshment areas and all are very reasonably priced and given the low admission price it is...
