  • We had a fab day here with our 2 little ones. So much for them to do and the staff that run all the shows are excellent. Our 4th visit now and we love it.  more »
  • This is an excellent place to take your family come rain or shine. Excellent rides for all ages. Indoor play areas, animals galore for feeding, events, games and sports galore. The staff were very friendly and behaved as if they were enjoying it. A place to eat, relax or shop. All in all money well spent.
  • Absolutely brilliant place. It was chucking it down but we still had an amazing day. We stayed 4hrs and there were still things we hadn't seen or done. The shows are brilliant and fun, animals are well looked after, rides are good, shop is reasonably priced. Well worth the money and a family attraction as it should be. Star of the day definitely John who did the shows.
