The Dolphin Show
The dolphin show is exciting and thrilling to watch. They perform some incredible tricks such as dancing, jumping and playing with balls. You can cheer and clap away whilst you sit back and enjoy.
The Bird of Prey Show
Be sure to duck down as these amazing birds fly right above your heads. Their wing spans are breathtaking and a real sight to witness.
There are also lots of exotic birds around the park and even a fun parrot show.
Find Nemo, Dory and friends in the beautiful aquarium inside the park. You will see vast marine life here and have fun naming the different fish that you see.
The Reptile House
A strong favourite at the park with giant turtles and huge scary snakes hiding within.
The Island of Primates
This is a must see with animals such as meerkats, wallabies and aardvarks roaming around.
The Butterfly Park
Butterflies are always a favourite with kids, especially babies. Watching them flutter away can be a mesmerising experience. All the different colours are also a good stimulation for baby’s brains.
The park is a great experience for families and as it isn’t that big, you don’t need a whole day there. This is great if you have children with a low attention span or children that need an afternoon siesta.
