  • great! n not hesitate take there kids screw. beautiful park and all kinds of animals live in good conditions. On the other hand, attention to the merry-go-round at l entrance to the Park. man that s take care of selling tickets even s he closes the carousel the following and much more serious turn, starts the ride without checking that the children are properly installed and attached. attended 2 times scenes that could have been dramatic. NO SECURITY! C IS A COMPLETELY IRRESPONSIBLE PUBLIC DANGER!
