  • We watched the show for an hour, it was raining yet it still went on and the birds were fabulous, very well trained and my kids loved how they flew over our heads. We spent about half an hour looking at all the birds in their enclosures, would have spent longer but it was raining. There is a small cafe, gift shop with lovely items for kids, and a playground. We caught the local bus to and from the venue.
  • A great morning. The birds were incredible and the show very entertaining.
  • Show is fun.
  • great show!
  • Really great show! When you're in Locarno you should come here! Is only 15 minutes from the Piazza Grande and is very leichz to find! There are only a few minutes with public Transport! The show lasts about 60 minutes and is really impressive! The whole animal diversity is really great. The Vorfühungs site is really nicely designed! The show will be performed in Italian and German! Really recommended!
