Our kids loved this zoo, especially the farm animals (horses, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, etc.). The playground was very entertaining with electric excavators (thanks, Volvo!), a trampoline, zip lines and much more. There is a nice cafe with decent prices, where you can have...More

We visited in winter to simply pass a morning while waiting for our flight but this can be a hidden gem: Don't expect a full on zoo experience as there are no lions, tigers etc. But the animals seem well looked after. The beauty of...More

We visited in January with young children, the rides were all closed - even the very small ones which was a bit surprising. The animals were well kept and our children enjoyed seeing the horses and the seals. The park was good fun although heavily...More

I read on their site that you can't bring strollers into the park. Did anyone park theirs outside the gates?
