Me and my friends went to the zoo and we were having a good time. We all had our children with us and decided that we should eat in picnic area. My son was attacked by geese, it was extremely horrifying, even passers by stop to try and help, my son was stood holding a sandwich when one of them went mental and started pecking his back! He is three and now has a fear of any birds. I contacted the zoo and waited weeks for a reply from the zoo manager, he did NOTHING and accused my son of... (read more)

5 0r 6 people reported a giant tortoise struggling on its back, it was suffering and distressed and obviously tired. The receptionist refused to get help until it had been on its back for an hour. How long it had been on its back before people started reporting it no one knew but she told us that it happens in the wild and there was nothing to worry about, how wrong she is, turtles can die of dehydration in they cant tip themselves back over and they can damage their lungs. She was laughing... (read more)

We took out eldest a seven year for her birthday. Even though it was May the weather in the morning was terrible! we had a fantastic time all three of our kids 7, 6 and 3 had the best adventure from the dinosaur world right through to the elephants and lions. All the areas had covered enclosures so even in the rain it's a great venue. We really enjoyed our trip and I'd recommend anybody wanting a great family day out to visit the zoo. The cafe was great value too. I found the prices and the... (read more)

Had a great day out with my son at Blackpool Zoo today!! Plenty of animals to see and happy to see them in good clean enclosures. My first thought was to drive down to Chester however with the weather not being great I chose Blackpool with it being closer to home. I made a great decision. My son is only 12 months old and although sleepy after lunch there was not a chance he was going to miss out on the action. I would highly recommend a visit and agree that you may not need a full day, but... (read more)

blackpool zoo is worth a visit if your staying or living in blackpool or any town near it, if you had one more day free in blackpool and it was either the zoo or the aquarium choose the zoo as it would occupy you for more hours of the day (read more)

We had a great afternoon out but it would not fill a whole day, some of the staff were very nice and the animals were well looked after. Good parking, set out really well, with great displays the kids enjoyed the dinosaurs and the parrot display. Expensive to get in and the food to buy was also expensive (read more)

Having been given a leaflet outside by a animal rights campaigner I was sorry to have this confirmed once I'd paid my £9.00 admission fee.
I am not an animal rights campaiger but some of the conditions these animals were kept in should not be allowed. I'd suggest another zoo that houses and displays it's animals in better conditions. (read more)

The animals at Blackpool Zoo were amazing, they have everything from tigers, lions, monkeys, camels and much much more. They also have a creepy crawly section (yuck) which my son loved. Watching the lions and tigers been fed was the high light of the day because they feed them so close to you, you get to see how big these cats really are, and the zoo keepers tell you every thing you need to know about each animal they are feeding ,so we all learned a lot of fascinating facts. The cafe is... (read more)
