Had a brilliant time here on the bank holiday Friday. We arrived at around 11am and had no problems get a space to park and didn't take us long to get through into the park itself.
There are so many animals to see here and they are all in excellently sized enclosures, all of them seem to have plenty of space to themselves. This admittedly was an issue for a few of the animals we wanted to see as they were clearly taking shelter due to the poor weather but, we would rather they have plenty of space than be cooped up so we can see them easily all the time.
Highlights for me were the penguins (who are having a new enclosure built so I'm going to have to come back then), the bat cave (might be a bit freaky for some people having animals flapping so close to your head) and the sun bears.
Only slight let downs were a lot of aviaries being closed due to avian flu, which was perfectly understandable and the boat ride which really isn't worth the time and effort.
Also a shout out to the nice kiosk attendant by the painted dogs who let us have refillable cups filled with slush puppy and one of the other attendants (who I shall not identify) who let us know have a giraffe cup as we didn't know such a cup existed when we first got our refillable ones! Absolute heroes.
