The new owners of this place deserve huge credit. They've clearly made a massive effort and it's a fantastic day out. Amazing value at under £40 for 4 people and so much to see and do. If you're in the area this place is definitely worth a detour for… Read Full Review

Just been back to the Combe Martin wildlife and dinosaur park, last time was a bit disappointing to be honest but they have new owners! There was a real vibe to the place this time and a new meet and greet animal section. All the staff were great, really cheerful and friendly, they made us feel special (last time they all seemed a bit glum...) Feeding the lemurs was awesome, what an amazing experience. The lions, sealion show, birds of prey, penguins, walking with Meercats and Wallabies… Read Full Review

I felt the need to leave a review to show my disgust in this attraction, we have been as a family a few times now and on our visit last year we decided to purchase a return pass so we could get in free, partially for the inappropriate fee they charge. Arrived today only to be told we could not use it anymore because they have started a new season even though when we purchased this pass we were told it was valid for a whole year. We asked to speak to a supervisor and they did not care one bit… Read Full Review

Entry to the car park is a little scary and accessability around the park is not for the faint hearted but we knew that before we came and were therefore prepared for steep hills and a bit of effort. We also knew that the wolves were no longer at the park because we have been following progress at The Wolf Centre on their website. We watched the Sea Lion show and were captivated by the bond displayed between the animals and their keeper - it was very special. I think the park could be… Read Full Review

I went to this Park 3 years ago and it was brilliant and good value for money,however,just been and it has really gone down hill.The cost is too much for what you actually get to start with,esp paying £11.50 for a 4 year old!Last time you could feed the Wallabies,but didn't even see any.lots of empty cages.last time there were dino's dotted around the park,but there were none apart from the moving ones at the end - they really could do with more dino's esp having the title of Dino park!

Our 3 year old son spotted a flyer for this place because of the dinosaur on the front. We already had a place to go, but we looked at the impressive promotional material and decided to there instead. What a mistake! Don't be fooled by the leaflet, you pay loads to get in, then keep paying!! Lots of sit on rides and other pay more to do activities, the best one being the train ride! It was so bad it was funny! Bearing in mind I just paid £38 to get in, another £6 for the train ride is a… Read Full Review

We found the park good value for money and experienced some good things during the day like the children had photos with a sea lion kissing them through glass they loved it and us as adults fed a loin it was amazing. I would go back there again. The children had a brilliant day they loved the dinosaurs waking up every hour and seeing all the animals. Well worth it. Afterall it is all about the kids… Read Full Review

I have visited many attractions around the country but have never written an adverse review before. The 'Park' is so bad it would take pages to list every problem.
It is probably sufficient to say it is a total rip-off, and I would rate it as the worst 'attraction' in the UK!… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

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 light… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

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 you… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

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 Full Review
