Good park, lots to see but not for anyone with mobility issues. Site is built on very steep hills and inclines. Drains and hose pipes were running down lots of the pathways making them quite hazardous. Wouldn't want to have had a pram or pushchair with us. Ate in the Jungle Cafe, food was cooked fresh and reasonably priced. We... More

It didn't take me and my partner very long to get round the park. I felt like it was quite small in comparison to others we have been to. The best part for us was feeding the wallaby's. Such friendly animals. Please be aware of how much walking up hills this involves. I suffer from chronic pain so I found... More

My mum used to being me here when i was younger, I hadn't been for around 10 years until today. It's safe to say it lived up to expectations... we had an amazing day!! Yes it is very steep and not suitable for everyone. I am 25 weeks pregnant and suffering with sciatica and I managed it, I struggled towards... More

On hillsides so not great for the less mobile (although we DID encounter wheelchairs and prams) but this is a lovely place in a nice location with quite a lot of animals and moving, roaring dinosaurs to keep you happy. A nice, pretty reasonably priced cafe (we had a child's chicken nuggets and chips between two adults and were pretty... More

Went here with my girlfriend, as i hadn't been there before, to be honest I wish it stayed that way. Half the exhibits where closed The lions and sea lion had tiny enclosures no idea how they get away with it! Not suitable for the disabled as the hills are like tackling Mount Fuji! The restaurant was filthy the whole... More

This site is very hilly and not suitable for anyone with a mobility disability. This was made clear at the reception and the disabled person got a free entry. We thought we would give it a try as thought we could see most of it but our scooter battery was not up to the job and there was no facility... More

Wow. £27 for me and my partner. I expected a nice day out, I was far from impressed. Most of the dinosaurs are very much worse for wear, one large exhibit was missing a whole leg, it genuinely had 3 legs. Many others were falling apart, real shambles. The animal living quarters were very messy and dirty, the penguins looked... More

Came here while on a short break in the area. benefited from a concession for both being over 60 and in a group. Grandson was mesmerized by the lifelike dinosaurs.These together with the animals on display made for a brilliant day out

We really enjoyed our visit to the dinosaur park and my grandchildren particularly enjoyed the sea lion show and the train. It was however very hilly but not a problem for our party.
