  • Didn't go onto actual park but needed the "big pineapple" photo. Lots of parking and other tourists willing to take a pic for you.  more »
  • We came across this place online and really wanted to visit. We came and it was quite a disappointment. The place really needs a lot of TLC to bring it back to life. The pineapple IS big but the struc...  more »
  • I can't believe what's happened there, it looks like it's from a scene of a horror movie. Tired, worn out and derelict. This was the place to visit as a kid, now with a kid of my own I'm shocked to se...  more »

  • Used to be a iconic figure. Its sad how it is degraded. It used to be a famous, it is a representation of how as we progress we leave things behind to rot. I believe the zoo part of it though is reviving it slightly.
  • Haven't been in 20 years and was left saddened by the state of the place.. Run down and falling apart with 90% of it closed down and no longer functioning.. I understand there wouldn't be much money to spend on repairs but you need attractions to spend money on.. The outside of the big pineapple looks great inside it's rotting and falling apart.. wet floors and slippery stairs.. someone took the time to put a wet floor sign up but not even attempt to clean it up.. Sad and a waste of petrol driving there.. please just shut down before someone gets hurt..
  • It's not exactly kept in pristine shape, however I'm impressed that it's still open after all these years. It's still functional and provides the fun experience I remember as a child. I'm really grateful for that!
  • Not much going on here, it's due for an overhaul. It did have a zoo, and a train but it's pretty much 2 or 3 people running the show. You won't have trouble parking because there is none there.
  • Nice stop over pic shot. Train ride available family fun, Zoo is nice to walk around and view.
