Middle of school holidays, took our 3 grandchildren. They thought it was wonderful. I hadn't been since visits in the 1970's, 80's and 90's. It was much improved re exhibits, and enjoyable. Food was ok, but in this day and age an upgrade is required.

We took our granddaughter here and we were very impressed with the neatness of the Park and the professional attitude of the staff. Each Animal Talk was very informative and showed their extensive knowledge of each particular spider/animal or reptile.
