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 more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

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,...

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... (read more)

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 more)

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...

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 more)

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.

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...

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... (read more)

Had a nice day out at West Midlands Safari Park. It took about 2 1/2 hrs to get through the safari park because of the queues of cars. But this didn't bother us and the time went quite quickly. It was amazing to be so close to the animals. Face to face with giraffes, zebras, etc. We were surprised to find short queues in the amusement park (although firends had told us that they had experienced long queues). Longest I queued was 15 mins - and this was a sunny Saturday in mid August. I went... (read more)

west midlands safari park - Paid £11.50 per person x4 and child of 7 years £10.50.
£4.00 for a programme.£3.00 for animal food.
Was told on several occassions not to feed certain animals as holding up the cars.
Had to queue for an hour and a half to get round animals-and even did a short cut because got bored-half the animals were sleeping and plenty of empty places with nothing to see for miles.
Should have a lane for people who want to take loads of pictures because you get stuck behind... (read more)

Visited WMSP with my two children aged 7 and 9 and they LOVED it, the wristband was a great help and they certainly got their monies worth! there wasnt a ride that they were unable to go on. Went around the safari trail twice, when we arrived at the park (at approx 10.30am)we could see that the safari trail was very busy so parked the car and headed for the rides first, "NO" queing at all!!! they went on all the rides twice, we then had a picnic near our car and went around the safari trail...

Nice big areas for most of the animals. West Midlands Safari Park is a nice place to visit if you are looking for a cheap day out with some pretty animals. Feeding the animals is good. The queues are very long on weekends and dire on bank holidays, this is only because the public area allowed to feed animals which slows the whole process down. (read more)

Plenty to do and see. Weather was good so great for picnics as food rather expensive. We had a good day, and no trouble going through the lions, tigers, cheetahs etc, which were wonderful to see and did not feel nervous at all, but feel these wild dogs should have been made more secure. They were very scary for our two grandchildren who were with us. (read more)

Probably one of the best overall attractions to visit, very reasonably priced, very good safari tour with well cared for animals, friendly staff, good clean toilet facilities, very good funfair rides for all ages again very reasonably priced. Nice selection of food available, basically it's one of the very few places we have ever visited that what you see is exactly what you get no hidden extras or rip off when you get there, shame other attractions don't follow the example set by West...

It was going to be either Longleat or West Midlands Safari Park. And I am glad we came here, the kids loved the animals and feeding them. The camels were great to feed and touch. The sea lion show was great as well, kids thought it was great and loved standing by the glass when they swam passed. The goats were brilliant, the fact that you could walk round with them. My only moan is the ride price for the bands - it's the same price for everyone from babies to adults. But I did like the fact... (read more)

£10.50 entry we had a car of 2 adults 3 children totalling £52.50 then to go on the rides £9.70 per wrist band beware if your kids are under 1m they may not be able to go on some rides. Thus the wristband was worthless rides that my 9 year old can go on in other attractions such as Blackpool and Twinlakes he couldn't go on here because he was to tall! He is not a big 9, you would expect that a wrist band would allow you on all rides, but their ride grading system is all wrong my 4 year old... (read more)

A nice place to go is West Midlands Safari Park, it is about 75 miles from were we live but worth the journey. A little upset at the price £8.99 for all and £8.75 to go on rides which have height restrictions on rides so smaller children cant go on everything.
Lovely safari and hippos, goats etc, well worth a visit included in the £8.99 admission is a free return visit so not too bad really. (read more)

My son of one and daughter of three loved it at the West Midlands safari park! The animals were fantastic! They have kennels for the dogs too. Lots of attractions and places to eat after the safari park drive! Lots of different animals which don't attack the car, unlike the monkeys at Longleat. Better than Longleat!!
We had a fantastic day out! There was lots to do and lots to see! What more do you want? It is also great value for money too. We travel there from South Wales, and we have... (read more)

We went to West Midlands Safari park a few months a go (in the Summer).
Upon arrival I was very impressed with the amount of car parking available and the close proximity to the facilities.
We decided to drive round the safari area first. Looking at the map I was impressed with the range of animals on display but when driving round I became a bit disappointed with the amount of animals actually on display. I appreciate that different animals sleep at different times of the day but some... (read more)

I went to West Midlands Safari Park with my cousin, friend and my sister, ages range from 16-22! we really enjoyed ourselves as always, the animals look happy and healthy but sometimes you do see signs of stress when there are noisy people about, but if you spot a keeper and report this they sort out the culprits straight away, as they keepers understand without healthy happy animals they will not have a buisness. The white animals are fascinating but they are a mutation and not a seperate... (read more)

We had a lovely day at West Midlands Safari Park. Two families with 2 children each, aged 7 & 8. There is a safari, small zoo type area (which also has talks and demonstrations) and a small theme park(geared for children rather than adults).We opted to go on the parks safari bus, which although it cost more was well worth it, as you came off the road and got really close to the animals. Lovely happy staff, all around the park. We enjoyed all of the attractions, but our children enjoyed the... (read more)

The animals at West Midlands Safari Park looked healthy and happy, there were lots of baby animals. The safari part of the park was well organised. The packs of food at £2 seemed expensive but feeding the less dangerous animals was a real hoot. The theme park pat was of little interest to us as we have a 1 year old child but it was not included in admission which suited us. There is a 'zoo' type area where the smaller animals are housed - all the animals looked happy and well cared... (read more)

West Midland Safari Park has the potential to be a good zoo and safari park and a centre for conservation, but sadly it fails on all points. Despite the ample space available in the safari park, the enclosures were mostly very barren and in the case of the ostriches and emus overcrowded. The park seems to specialise in the breeding of white animals with no conservation value in order to draw customers. To top it off the sign relating to two white tiger cubs were misleading in that it stated... (read more)
