Well we took the family for a day out,wished we had not bothered,It all seems in need of updating,and there are so few animals to see,there are more in the pet shop.The food and drink prices are high,best take a picnic.The rides on offer are really not much fun,with a few of them not working.Dont waste your money,stay away

Came back just yesterday from a day out here and it was a great day! Staff very friendly, site clean, great atmosphere all around. The only downer was that we had travelled 3 hours to get here and unfortunately we couldn't fit the zoo side of the park into the one day :( so would Definitely recommend booking for 2... More

Sadly our visit left us feeling that Merlin needs to take action before it becomes a serious issue. On Sunday our welcome came as a grunt by a very young operative who seemed unsure of his role, safely in without any formal bag checks, we went straight to the newest ride, the Gruffalo, which lifted the spirits of our youngest...

We visited for the first time with 2 young children about a month ago, mainly to go to the Gruffalo ride. After the ride we purchased a Gruffalo trunkie (at way above the RRP) from the official shop, got back into the park, realised there was still a security tag on so had to take it back to the shop....
