“Money wasted”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

I agree with the other reviewers looks like a barn outside and is really too small to enjoy because it was too overcrowded, school holidays meant it was very noisy and touching a snack or looking at the animals outside was impossible, not worth the entrance fee, a rip off!
The cafe tables hadn't been cleared and looked like a dive, staff weren't educated about the food and couldn't answer questions on ingredients. Not worth the visit or the entrance fee

“Great Day Out”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Had a fantastic day out at PiliPalas. The weather was nice so we were able to make use of all the excellent outside facilities as well as seeing all the animals – which are obviously really well cared for. Café food was good and reasonably priced and the gift shop seemed to have a good variety to suit all pockets. Will definitely visit again.

“Over priced for what it is”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

For what you get it is overpriced when you compare it to other attractions within a short drive.

The butterfly house is great fun but it does get congested.

Worth a visit but probably not a return

“Disapointed if im honest, too pricey for a family for what you get”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We visited here a few weeks back because the weather on the day was aweful, huge mistake really at nearly £16.00 per couple and really all over and done with in 90 mins or less, really not worth the money..
café and shop really expensive, I know that there is upkeep involved in a place like this, but it was rather small and overcrowded
There was a chance to hold a snake if you wanted too on the day we were there
I would like to add tho that the animals were all well looked after and in clean enviroment
There is a outdoor part to the attraction but on a wet day is of little use to be honest
would I go back NO simply because it did not have enough to keep the children happy for the money spent

“Looking tired !”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Looked forward to this visit as did it years ago (approx 20 years) Plenty to please a family and two new looking play areas for children. Meerkat enclosure was great! But for me the whole overall look was tired and needed some serious TLC.It was the only attraction we visited this week that I regretted the entrance money.
