    Great day out for the family. Fantastic collection of reptiles and a great garden/park walk that winds its way around the lakes full of ducks, fish and otters. The park has piles of dinosaur models, some interactive. Included in the price is a small go-cart course at the far end of the garden and trampolines at the end of the route. A mini farm of goats and alpacas too. You can also see the breeding tanks with baby snakes etc. It also has a nice chill out area with a snack bar near the end of the route. A really excellent day out - good luck getting the kids out of the gift shop!

    Wonderful place, huge, can take all day. The reptiles were lovely and there were expansive gardens. Huge grounds and diverse activities. Four stars because not sure about the racist/imperialist shrunken heads and the brownface spectacles. That was dated and culturally insensitive, especially with the emphasis on cannibaliam.

    the exhibits are fun and interesting, but the indian village is kinda cheap and culturally insensitive. The workers are not motivated, we always had to wait a couple minutes to be served when they were standing rigut in front of us but didn't yet feel like takling to us. It's worth a trip regardles, there is a really cool Bonsai Garden and lots of crocodiles to see. Take lunch and drinks with you, the bar is closed during the day.

    4 / 5 Reviews posted by irishgirl280 (Ireland) on 25/07/2019

    I was surprised by planet exotica, I had thought it would be a very small reptile house but instead was almost a zoo in its own right! The price is a little high 15 euro for anyone over 14 I think...
