We visited this attraction with my son at the weekend. What a superb day out, dispite the weather. The animals are well looked after, and I cannot speak to highly of the talks that are included free of charge during the day. We experienced the Sea Lions show what a treat that was and also the small animals talk where you get the opportunity to hold spiders, cockroaches, snakes etc.
All in all a well run attraction where all the staff are polite and helpful. They obviously enjoy there job which comes over from talking to them, and all the animals are well looked after

We took family members aged 4 to 72 and we all loved it. It is a bit hilly, so it was a bit of a struggle for my mum, but the demonstrations were all well spaced that we could get around all of them in good time. We all loved the Sea Lion display best. Fantastic day even if the weather was a bit cold.

This really disappointed us.very expensive entry and to ride on the train is an extra charge. It all looks very tired and in need of a good sprucing up. Has the potential to be good. The dinasours looked -well -just funny. The sea lion show was good apart from having to sit on wet cushions. This place needs a cash injection.

I originally took my family here about 4 years ago. We returned recently and nothing much had changed. It's still a very worthwhile day out and there are signs to show that the park has recently been taken over and work is underway to update the attractions.

The park consists of a wildlife park and a section containing life size dinosaur models; some of which are mechanical and move.

Hopefully there will be noticable improvements very soon.

We decided to come to the park after reading reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The sealion show was particularly good and a must see. The keepers were friendly and informative and despite some drizzle we had a great day!
