“Do not enter drive through or buy feed for animal”

Written on: 08/08/2015 by dianepartington19700 (1 review written)

We just came back today on 8 Aug 2015. Its busy as you expected on a sat. We got a leaflet suggest go through the drive through after 3pm. So we decided to follow the advise and walk around the park first. Its all ok in the park but the sea lion show at 1.30pm were so full that we couldnt find a seat. the next show is 3.30pm. as far as i could tell the show lasted 15-20mins. We then proceed to do the drive through at 2pm. We sat in car for 1.5hr and we saw 2 rhinos, some deers, 1 white tiger… Read Full Review

“dont bother! ... ever!”

Written on: 09/06/2014 by Linaz40 (1 review written)

basically i am writing this as they haven't had the decency to contact me regarding the written complaint i put in at the end of the visit. i can only assume that the people who rate this place highly have never been to a safari park before. there are so many gates to get through which are totally unnecessary as the animals are kept in cages or behind electric fences (i'm presuming there were animals as the grass was so long we could only see the tips of their ears). when we finally got to the… Read Full Review

“Diabolical dozy staff ruined my daughters birthday!”

Written on: 16/04/2013 by SayNOtoWestMidsSafariPark (1 review written)

The park itself for a kids 8th birthday get together is ok but the staff completely ruined her day with their lack of knowledge and compassion. Got to the park, misled by stewards trying to sell programes THEN misled AGAIN to go through the safari where all we saw was loads of grass, trees and a few (very few) tranquilised animals. I HAD MY WINDOW DOWN IN THE LIONS PART LOOKING FOR THE LIONS! The only lion we saw was the one that was chisled in the rockface lol. Came out of safari early (cut… Read Full Review

“I was bored after 3 hours ”

Written on: 10/12/2012 by ClaireRhino (1 review written)

I attended the Santa Safari in December. I live two hours away from West Midlands Safari Park but I thought why not, it would be a nice day out! We did our drive-through tour around the animals which was lovely but it's such a shame that some of the animals were inside, like the giraffes and the wolves etc. We then went to spend the rest of our day at the discovery trail and the African Village! I thoroughly enjoyed everything there from the bats to the goats, but there isn't much there at… Read Full Review

“DATED, TATTY OVERPRICED”

Written on: 22/10/2012

As we live locally we in the past have visited the safari park many times. In the past we may have been a few times in one year and so as you can see we are regular visitors. However I have to be honest and say that the park is getting very old a tatty and really needs some money spent on it to bring it more up to date. Most of the rides were there 20 years ago when I was young! No locks on toilet doors and doors coming off paint peeling etc Overall just generally a bit tatty. Food is… Read Full Review

“I took my son to West Mids Safari park for his...”

Written on: 27/03/2011 by lynda e (3 reviews written)

I took my son to West Mids Safari park for his birthday yesterday. What an utter disappointment!!
Firstly although it doesn't say on their website but if you have a convertable you cannot drive through the carnivorous animals areas, so basically we got to see a lot of deer!
Extortionally priced with entry price plus rides plus lots of fair ground games all around for £3 a go!
Catering facilities were abysmal, food was dreadful £2.99 for a bowl of cold chips!
Really do save your money do not go… Read Full Review

It's common sense!!! What an absolute joke... Maybe if you brought a proper family car and not a selfish flash convertible your children might beneft from this. We thought the lions etc were amazing, got lots of brill photos and my daughter loved it!

Written on: 26/03/2011

Perhaps renaming the park to the " west midlands gateway to he'll park" would be a more suitable title. The animal park is absolutely hellish, during the drive round you encounter the best selection of utter tools that Kidderminster has to offer, people who block both lanes at the top of a hill So you sit there on a 45 degree incline while Barry and the rest of his shellsuit wearing family sit there in their clapped out ford grenada ghia, throwing sandwiches at the most depressed, mangy, flea… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/03/2011 by RoyDad (2 reviews written)

Thought the zoo was a bit limited and didn't go into the rides area but the safari was absolutely superb and made the day a real success. Might be best to go around before and after the zoo area, we just went around at the end. Not too much traffic and you could stop without affecting others or overtake if you wanted to go faster. Definitely buy the food at the entrance as you can feed the deer type creatures. Lots of animals in decent sized plots. Our children feed the small deers, then three… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/09/2010

We visited West Midland Safari Park on the 19th of September as an extended family (managed to get 4 generations in one trip!). Was quite worried in case gramps couldn't cope or the little ones would get bored, but we were pleasantly surprised by the range of activities that they had on offer.

The big animal drive through section had some amazing animals on view, all which looked more than happy living in their large paddocks. What a change to trying to see animals through the bars like the… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/08/2010 by danceoftheshamen (1 review written)

I went with my wife, mother & daughter who is 3 years old to West Midlands Safari Park. We went on a bank holiday so expected it to be busy. Actually on this occasion there was no queue so it appears the attraction has lost some of it's popularity as compared to when i lived in the area several years ago although the animal tour half of the park was busy enough & we did have a pretty long 2 1/2 hour tour of the 4 mile animal section... due to delays caused by people blocking both lanes to… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/08/2010 by kelsie500 (3 reviews written)

I went to west midlands with my two young cousines and nan and sister. We had a great time. In the theme park the rides where great fun the staff where helpful and it was good value for the money. I advice that if you go in the theme park to buy the ristbands so you get unlimited rides instead of buying tickets to go on the rides. The only bad bit of the park was the actual zoo part where you go round in your car it takes ages to go round and itts hard if you have young kids in the car etc… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/08/2010

i would recommend the park to a friend if they are rich, its ridiculous how you pay £44.00 to get in the park, then have to pay to get in the theme park. we didnt get our value for money as my parents wouldnt pay to get in the theme park so we went round the safari then walked to the theme park area and went on the train back to the car park. it would be good if the price you pay was for the safari and the theme park… Read Full Review

I went here before when the children were younger and really enjoyed the safari park, I went on friday 16th april 2010 for the 2nd time and I will never go again, I took my family there for a day out it cost me £44.00 for two adults and two chilren to get in, which wasn't to bad, but after driving threw the safari which wasn't very good, we took are children inside to go to the theme park side, which they were really excited about, we then found out that we also had to pay for wrist bands so… Read Full Review

Busymum2011's Comment

Written on: 13/09/2012

Totally agree. That was our overwhelming opinion too. My mother used the words 'rip off' for the first time in her life in that place. I have lived nearby and been many times during my life but will re-mortgage the house before we visit again. The young kids staffing the rides were also rude and unhelpful and wouldn't let kids on the rides if their curly hair was as much as a millimetre over/under the stated height line, causing much upset from younger siblings who wanted their brother/sister on with them. Ridiculous and not fun at all! Very angry and upset when we left. :(

Written on: 28/10/2009

On arrival i got a sense that it was going to be mega busy. The safari section looked like the M25.....so we decided to do the park bit first. The rides are pretty old but good fun all the same and not bad value but i've only one child. Can't comment on the food places as took a packed lunch. The animal section is great, sea lions, bat cave, reptile house - probably the best bit of the park. So far i'd be on 4 stars as i was really surprised how good it was, i even thought the queues… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/08/2009 by animallover (1 review written)

West Midlands Safari park - amazing - loved it so much that i went round for five hours on first visit and and three hours on second return visit. Important to get there for 10am otherwise long queues. As long as you keep receipt you can return to safari park as many times as you like in one day. We went at 10am and again and 4.30 pm. and 7 pm. The animals were all very active at 7 p.m. how many places can you visit where you get a free return ticket! I intend to return again in a month's… Read Full Review
