We loved the layout of the park. Very clean. The paths very accessible and kept 4 year old twins well entertained throughout. Interesting selection of animals and very helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommend to all families with young children.

This is a beautiful relaxing place to visit. Strolling around the grounds looking at all the animals was very relaxing and enjoyable. Patting the baby lion cubs was fun. Good place to go for all the family

We got to the park to see the lions being fed. The food for obvious reasons was thrown over a tall wire fence into an enclosure where 2 female and 1 male lion were. It was non eventful. Walked brought the rest of the park and it was very pleasant but nothing fantastic. Went to pat the tigers but didn't realise it was through a wire fence /enclosure where you could only pat one cubs stomach through the wire. We were all done in 1.25 hours and it cost $30.

I had been to Paradise Valley Springs many years ago and it has been up classed greatly. We went in the pouring rain but it didn't detract from Park at all. We were able to get up close to two 10 month old lionesses and it was a big thrill for me to be able to pat them and feel their fur. I loved it!

Look this is simply beautiful- the surroundings- the clean clear spring water teaming with trout- it's a must when you visit Rotorua. I first started going here nearly 45 years ago- and its always been great- no- it just gets better
