  • Brought 2 toddlers and 2 teens what a brilliant day something for everyone the babies loved the day and the play area teens loved the interactive talks and touch and feeding times staff are so welcoming and friendly what a brilliant way to spend a rainy day perfect day out for winter time too thanks guys x
  • We had a great time at the place. Friendly and knowledgable with almost about all the reptiles they have. They have scheduled talks about snakes, animals or insects that later on kids and adults will be able to touch. They're also an indoor playground where kids could play and enjoy. Picnic benches inside an out. A place to sit, eat packed lunches (recommended) and enjoy the day.
