  • We had a wonderful time at tropical world, it is really cool and the environments for the animals are well designed and properly maintained. Price is reasonable and the staff are friendly. Parking is limited and shared with the park, but there is room for maybe 100 cars. Toilets are well maintained and clean.
  • We took two of our grandchildren, one aged 4 and one aged 2 , when we had them for the weekend. They both fully enjoyed being able to get up close and feel apart of the animals surrounding s. It’s a nice size to get around with younger children, who might normally get bored easily if you trail them around for too long. This is a fantastic place to go no matter how old you are! Lovely canteen with great coffee I must say. Always extremely clean and really good experiences as you walk round with such a variation of animals!
