  • If you can go off season I really recommend this place. In summer it can get very busy, access through car can be time consuming as the roads in and out are quite narrow, one lane often. The park is.....  more »
  • Exploiting animals is something you should never support. Show adventure world that this is not OK by not going there! Oh wait I forgot,90% of humans are thick as mud.  more »

  • So much to see. Great Dolphin show. The pandas are amazing. Never seen so many pandas in one place. To avoid crowds, go on weekday. Free admission on your birthday.
  • This is a fun all-day destination! The admission is a bit high, but worth the cost. My 2-year old was free and I paid a children's admission for the 5-year old. We watched two shows (included with your admission). The dolphin show was fantastic! Also included with your admission is the safari ride, a nice bonus. There are several places to eat with both indoor and outdoor seating. One drawback is that the rides are extra. You can purchas tickets by the ride or get an unlimited pass. We chose the unlimited. If you have young children make sure your child is tall enough to ride. My 2- year old was only able to go on a few rides and there were some rides where a parent had to ride with my 5-year old (2 passes will be required). Aside from the extra cost for the rides, this will be a very fun day!
