“Really enjoyed the crocodiles and how knowledgeable the trainers were about them.” – Lucy
“This place is seriously one of the best places to take kids in Auckland. There’s such a great variety of attractions- my kids never get bored and love the interaction they get here. Plus the food options are just as varied (including healthy choices – loving that!). Thanks so much guys for doing a great job entertaining my kids, it’s places like this that ensure my sanity!” – Carrie
“The farm yard animals were so cute! My daughter enjoyed having her first cuddle with a baby rabbit, petting a baby lamb through the fence and being followed by the very friendly chickens that weren’t in pens. The goat enclosure was amazing!” – Storm
“Loved it. A great family outing. Kids had lots of fun. Must visit when in Auckland.” – Karan
