  • We went to Ponderosa today and my little boy loved it and especially loved the bunnies, the reindeer, the pig and the horse! I would definitely recommend going this week before they shut in November 2017 for refurbishment. Can't wait to go back next year after the refurb :-)
  • The staff are not friendly the owner didn't even say good afternoon felt like he just wanted the money, what was really upsetting to see was a otter crying as it was on his own, they where getting it a mate but it was upsetting to see. I went in the afternoon and they where only just started cleaning the animals out they should have been done before they even opened, I expect animals to smell but not to the point of having to hold your nose, the staff that were cleaning looked like where too busy talking to each other then working, A lot needs to improve before I will return. On a positive note a friend of mine got married there and it was a beautiful ceremony and reception.
  • Our grandson loves it here. I think that disabled children are the target audience here but you certainly don't need to be to enjoy it.
  • Well it’s NOT open until March 2018 due to refurbishments so the rating isn’t for anything other than the lack of notice on their website about the fact they’re CLOSED for winter. We had to drive there to find out...
  • Lovely little place to take the kids
