Very expensive for what you receive, a substandard theme park with no apparent theme. The animals are not exotic though are cared for well and the only redeeming feature. If the world was ended by zombies tomorrow and this dinosaur park was the last sanctuary I would need to be drugged with milk or taken by force. (read more)

From the moment you arive by car you get a feel for the place. a massive hill is your first hurdle, and not your last.
The wolf area. Whats the point of a viewing platform if its positions / build is in such a away that absolutley no one could see the wolves
The Dinosaur museaum. Its a Room about 12 Metres by 6. you would get better value going to Barnstaple and buying a book on Dinosaurs.
Recommended by Terry Nutkins. Well that just about says it all. I think he needs an eye check.

Very uninspired by the place, all looks good in theory but just doesn't work. Prices far to high, then once your through the gates you just keep in paying. Overheard a lot of other people voicing the exact same thing, maybe it's time the nods running the place took a little notice of sites like this before the word spreads any further. All the 'rides' are out of date, non of the staff look particularly happy to be there, the animals don't even seem to be bothered either. The queue for the... (read more)

The park was very over priced to enter and this was with children admitted free. We all thought it was a rip off especially as you had to pay for the kiddies rides etc! The eathquake train was laughable in fact we did laugh it was so bad.I thought that some or the animals were not treated very well.For example I, saw one visitor taking a meerkat for a walk on a lead it looked terrified. All in all it wasn't worth the money and I thought some of the rides looked tired and needed a make... (read more)

What a con! Very clever advertising made this place seem a fantastic day out for everybody. What we found was very disappointing.
The animatronic dinosaurs were rubbish! Only 1 moved.
The Light Show was laughable. To sit for 10 minutes whilst some 'space-like' music played and a few lights flash on and off does not make a good show.
The Dinosaur 'Museum' was like visiting an old relatives front room. Small, smelly and a couple of old fossils.
The Pharoah's Tomb was laughable! If a person... (read more)

I think that the park is fantastic! I must admit that the entrance price could be dropped a little and that the gradients could be mentioned in the brouchure but apart from that we love it here! We come every year as we come to north devon every year for our holiday. Our children LOVE it at the park, especially the extended dinosaur shows with the escaped dinosaur - you should have heard my girls squeal with delight!
To sum up: a little expensive but an excellent day out IF you make sure... (read more)

What a waste of money, described as a wildlife/dinosaur park, but not really sure where the pharaohs tomb and light show fit in???? Dinosaurs really poor about 5 in a small area that on the hour spray water and make a noise!!! Whopeee!!! Spent £36.50 to get in and yet the brass rubbing, train ride and other amusements were extra. The birds near to the toilets were in a small cage and looked very sad for themselves. Missed the otters (not sure how??) the only thing we enjoyed was the... (read more)

A wonderful day had by the family a lovely atmosphere around the park friendly enthusiastic staff clean and reasonably priced, the attractions were great the seal show was superb as was the wolfman Shaun Ellis who along with the other animal handlers and staff at the park were happy to stay after the show and talk to me my wife and two children. Some steep hills but all the attractions in one wooded valley and you can take your time to see close up animals such as otters, wolves from just a... (read more)

The place should be shut down ! However to all those that moan about the hills, Combe means Valley ! the clue is in the title ! of course its gonna be Hilly you plebs !
The tall monkey keeper and the guy that did the parrots and meerkats and red monkeys was very good indeed and what they said was really educational.
I met the owner who told me that snow leopards lived in family groups in trees and that lemurs have a tail like another limb........ man was well thick and seemed to be on drugs ! (read more)
