“Thank you so much for a fantastic birthday party. We loved everything about it. The customer service in advance was amazing. The zoo itself was just fab, great weather, not too busy, just super. The kids loved the party room, the food was lovely, the lion mascots were entertaining, the party bags were much appreciated and we loved the gorilla gift. Honestly can’t thank you enough, really fantastic day.”

“I just wanted to say thank you to all the zoo staff who helped with our birthday party. It was quite a big party with some children with special needs, but the zoo staff couldn’t have been more helpful or accommodating. Great venue for a birthday party. Thank you all very much.”
