This is great for a half day out, especially if it's raining as a large part of it is under cover and nice and warm, but I thought it was expensive - £30 for a family of 4 for half a day of entertainment. That said, I have a new favourite animal in the armadillo, and it was great for the kids to get up close and personal with some of the animals in the picnic area over lunchtime. Some of the cages were a bit small and tired but quite a few had signs saying the enclosure will be renovated (enlarged?) soon, including the penguin pool. I would go back if I had another rainy week in the Isle of Wight, but other attractions would take priority in nicer weather.
