Went here with my family, wildlife and shows were fun to see but you had to be on a fairly strict timetable and you can't see it all in one day as the timetable conflicts. Quite a few of the dinosaurs weren't working when we...More

Hi Debra, Unfortunately the park is built into a valley with some very steep hills. We do not charge for wheelchair users because they cannot access all areas of the park. We find that mobility scooters tend to struggle and... More

Hi Jon, Regrettably we do not hire out wheelchairs due to the terrain of our park. We do not recommend coming to our site if you have mobility issues as we are built into a valley. Of course, we would never tell you you... More
