  • If you are interested in going to see animals, I wouldn't bother. The exhibits are tired, several empty and many seem to be quite cramped. Quite a lot seems to have been spent upon play areas for kids...  read more »

  • Wish i could give one star less, the animals were kept in unsuitable habitats to suit their own. All the animals had were twigs in every habitat to play with, a guinepig had some square cut cardboard as its home. the reindeers fur was peeling off and the reindeer was bleeding out of her bum. Very displeased. Regards Ellie & Josh :(
  • Spent 6 hours enjoying this great place. My friend and I had an enjoyable and educational visit. We got some great photos and some happy memories! Well done to all at Ponderosa.
  • Could do with a tidy but my son was very happy there. Parking is a joke but it's worth it to see the animals.
  • We did this place in one hour and 5 minutes including toasties and a drink. Not much there looks run down with unhappy animals.
  • Beautiful animals, rare reptiles, a great day out to enjoy with your family
