We arrived just after midday and we were surprised how quiet the park was. This was fine however - my children could enjoy all the animals which were all awake and interactive. The dolphin, wild bird and Eagle show were captivating, the staff were really dedicated to the events. We took a bus and we were very happy to realise that the bus stops right outside the park. Fantastic day!
