We visited here on a coach trip. This was great for the kids. We visited in February though & none go the rides were open so other than the actual safari & the odd show there wasn't much else to do. We only had a couple of hours here so was ok, I imagine in summer when it's in full flow and everything is open it will be great for hours of fun.

Had a lovely few hours at West Midlands Safari Park today (1st Feb) as part of the Winter Safari weekend opening hours :)

There were plenty of animals out and about to keep us amused and in awe - fed some of the animals and laughed as they rubbed against the car and ate the special animal food we purchased!

As you get a free return ticket, this worked out really good value for money as we can use the return ticket in the summer - when tickets would have cost a lot of money to get in!! Bonus :)

Really enjoyed the visit and cannot wait to come back in the summer months - came last summer too and thoroughly enjoyed it too!!!

Been here many times in my childhood, returned after 8 years and its even better. Went on weekend expecting it to be busy, but didn't turn out that bad. There were big ques at times in the safari, but that's to be expected when you turn up in the middle of the day. Good variety of animals, far better than in previous years. Went and watched the sea lion show which was great fun! Great atmosphere around the park, being in our 20s we certainly didn't feel too old! We even went round the safari again 20 minutes before the entry shut. I would recommend doing the safari at the end because its much quieter and the animals are much more active waiting for their dinner. A free return is offered, which is an added bonus. Great day out for all ages!!

Superb set up for a family! Took Granddaughter aged 6 and she loved every minute from arrival until a very tired end. The free return ticket is one thing we will definitely be using as all she talks about is when we can go back.
Animals and amusements on offer were well worth the visit with a small child!!
Good value anyway but with a free return a bargain!
Take a picnic as food can be costly and needs improvement to be honest and get their early as traffic delays can be irritating to say the least.
