Difficult to review. We didn't hate it, we didn't dislike it. Some things to note. The site is very steep; more so than the literature suggests. A pram is pointless in my opinion (We have an 8 month old). We used the carrier prodominently and...More

As an attraction it is OK, but there are a few reasons I can't give more than 3stars. 1. It is quite expensive. There is not a huge number of activities inside, I would say fairly standard. But paying 12.50 for a child and 15.00...More

This is a great mix of traditional family fun activities, from the well cared for animals in the wildlife park to the numerous dinosaurs spotted around as you walk around. The massive indoor play area is great for the kids to run off any energy...More

Went here for the day whilst on holiday nearby with our 3 year old. Spent about 5 hours here and could have easily stayed longer. He loved the dinosaurs and all of the animals. Lots of walking and would probably be hard work for anyone...More

Hi Jon, Regrettably we do not hire out wheelchairs due to the terrain of our park. We do not recommend coming to our site if you have mobility issues as we are built into a valley. Of course, we would never tell you you... More
