A very relaxed afternoon with the kids, but the place is a bit run down. I think there are new owners trying to pick it up

Had a long wait at reception before anyone served us. Kids enjoyed interacting with the animals and playing on the playground. Some equipment was a bit sticky and didn't move as smoothly as it should have. Otherwise good fun.
