  • Was here with a friend one day with Sun rain about 20 degrees. The animals were birds o variable, don't think you're going to go on a hot day because the animals is that we tired then. Pay the entrance fee since included rides. You can bring food in, there are many places to have a picnic on the. It is also possible to buy different kinds of food. What I was impressed with was that the staff was hejig o happy. Then it was clean everywhere. Bins everywhere, which is great. Coming back.

  • The Park is very large and well maintained. Very clean everywhere. Many different species of animals to see, from the Meerkats and seals to Elephants and Lions. The only disappointment was that the wolves would not prove. Walked past their compound several times, in the brilliant Sun, in the rain and when it was shadow, but they looked not out even though we stayed behind and Scout for over 30 minutes. I felt like the perimeter fence was empty. But the other animals were more active. The area is very hilly, so wear proper footwear for you.

  • Was there with my girlfriend a couple of days now on the last vacation week. Absolutely top. For the "Reef burger" on the first day. It was quite a bit of fun element that they put in the chili cheese nuggets in the vegetarian burger. The second day was the "Shark Grill" outside the Park area. Many cute animals, however, we saw no wolves in spite of the fact that we went there to the pendant 4 times. But many other cute common and unusual animals we saw. The admission price to the Park 2 adults 2 days was ok had gotten to be a bit cheaper. Many "pokestops" If you like to play Pokémon and battla in gym. Large parking lot, a lot of places. 80 SEK/day do you say is a fair price.

  • Great place for the whole family. Nice range of animals. Safari experience is amazing. Dolphin show is one of kind. Don't forget to take the ride on the roller coaster. Not much food range at offer. Maybe more vegan restaurants would be an important addition.
  • A great time for the whole family.(Don't miss Wildfire!) Make sure to download the app, it will help you to choose which shows you want to catch. If you are early (exactly when opening), just skip through to the Safari ride - that way you will avoid queues and work yourself back instead.Also, try not to grab a lunch by the dolphin show just after it ends, it will be packed at the fast food places. The area is quite hilly, be prepared with good walking shoes.
  • This is a must visit place. Enjoy this place in a great Swedish summer. Amazing collection of animals and very good view from gondola.Also recommended for Dolphin show and seal show! Excellent place in Nordic. Cost may be appearing more compared for similar shows in Singapore, Dubai and US ~ but considering if you are habitat in Nordic or if you are visiting Sweden --- it is must place to visit.
  • Great place for kids and adults! I wish they could have spent more time on which food they offer as the fast food does not rhyme very good with their sustainability message.
  • This zoo is quite amazing. From the roller coaster rides to the gondola ride that takes you around the zoo to see the animals. Fantastic layout and easy to get around. Many food choices to choose from. You can even rent a wagon to tote around your bags or small child. Not to miss before you leave is the dolphin show. Kids will absolutely love watching the dolphins perform for an audience.
