  • As usual, went to the marine day holiday, but were so many people. But it is told from the taxi driver was not summer, summer resolution is required. Cute, Panda is still very popular. Will goes in its own way, but very crowded. Dolphin is the impression that overshadowed a few years ago. What I guess-but good.

  • It was so long weekend a little early and I visited ago the opening 40 minutes, but bode is in a long line of development. Admission ticket ticket booth was very crowded. We recommend advance-purchase tickets. The Panda to throb at the entrance after the first reach a distance is a sight to see. Lively pandas here say Panda behind thick glass, and stuck in the daytime but its lively I am. See more Panda, wanted, crowded with weekend, so early to Safari world across time, with no passengers aboard Kenya. Wait until I finished watching this healthy animals at Safari world and drop-offs, became wait 45 minutes of time was Kenya. Weekend is just awesome. Without crowding the dolphin show, animal action show and then watch. Kenya No. Panda and rides is a long line. Finish lunch early and get past midnight, food and beverage outlets in the long line took place so it was hard. This could see the Panda and from 12 noon. Before time and route with other customers and you stagger a little holidays particularly stress-free, happy 10-14 o'clock, jam home.

  • Fun place for kids, but the price is rather steep. Aside from entrance fee, there are in park upgrades for attractions that I'd rather see included in the price. Dolphin show is great though!
  • Disgusting animal abuse park. Only ignorant people without consciences would enjoy this kind of "entertainment." See below.
  • Extreme good experiences for kids to have close distance interaction with animals. You can feed, understand, touch, them by different way. Rent a keep, golf-cart, on-foot, take the parks offered train etc. if you are going to rent a jeep, please make early reservations.
  • Great place to meet people who murder dolphins rip mothers from babies, then dump the babies at sea to die, all for your money. Dont support these people. #dolphinproject
  • You need to buy free pass to enjoy all facility in adventure world
