Zoo, zoo, zoo we went to the zoo Marwell wildlife to be precise and were fortunate to see all of the big cats with the tiger being a highlight of the day. As soon as we were through the kiosk we were offered lost child stickers – little tip stick them on the back of young children’s clothes who are likely to rip them off.
Everywhere you look there are more animals to spot so don’t ignore the animals on the other side of the path or you’ll miss some beauties.
The dinosaurs are scattered around the park and are fairly realistic. The boy wouldn’t go too close to them as he thought the dinosaurs were going to eat him! Well apart from the spitting dino as he was cool and cooled them down so he didn’t want to leave him.
The dinosaurs have little animations like a wagging tail, moving eyes, flapping wings as well as the atmospheric music for effect. The boys couldn’t wait to spot the next dinosaur and would race each other to see who could reach them first.
There is a dinosaurs outpost near to one of the adventure play parks where you can go in and look at stones, bones etc in closer detail. This was closed when we went past but it is open at the weekends and during the school holidays. There was also a robotic dinosaur which you could control by pressing certain buttons which all the children (and adults) found fascinating.
The dinosaurs are only stopping for a short while over the summer so visit before 3rd September if you want to see them.

We had an amazing time at the zoo both during the day and the evening party. The sunset party was a hive of excitement with a great party atmosphere and at the end of the day we walked across the road to retire at the marwell hotel. The next sunset party will be on the 5th July so it’s not too late to soak up the atmosphere, animals and entertainment for 2014.
