“Dangerous play park, avoid at all costs”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Firstly, I do understand that the park is trying to make better enclosures for the animals, but my goodness, the animals in the outside enclosures are in such a poor state. So much so that I took the children back inside because I didn't want to upset them. The inside areas are better but still small, but a good varied amount of animals and plants. We went on a rainy day so it was busy, but this didn't bother us as we could still see the animals it just took a little longer (and kept the kids entertained for longer!).
We didn't use the cafe as we always take a picnic to such places, and it was easy to go back to the car to eat and re-enter with a hand stamp.
The rain cleared up later in the day, so when we left we thought we would let the children play in the big play park. However, on close inspection we promptly left. An absolutely shocking state. Big pieces of broken metal sticking out from numerous places. In fact almost everything was broken. And the safety floor (not sure what it is called) was all broken apart. Shockingly dangerous, I cannot believe they allow children to use this equipment. I understand that children should be supervised in play areas, but even with supervision this place is an hazard. I'm even tempted to phone the council to report it. We shall not be returning which is a shame, because I really like to visit and support all of the Island's tourist attractions because the majority of them are top notch. This one puts them to shame.

“Amazing”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Such an amazing time! Different variety of animals, informative displays. Staff were a little rude in the gift shop.

Gift shop was poor.

We saw a Sloth that was not in any enclosure which was definitely a highlight!
