I took my niece to Animal Farm on Sunday and having been there many years ago i thought it would be fun for my niece.
Well i looked on there website and it all looked the same Pony Rides, Tractor Rides (around the farm), Land Train, Activetys such as coloring, ball shooting and animals such as owls etc, i knew my niece would love this, well when we got there we payed an extortionate price to get into the park, it was much cheaper years ago, and for what nothing that was advertised on the website i and my niece was very disappointed, my niece is 9 years old and the only thing that she really enjoyed was the indoor play area and cuddle club.
There are no longer anything that i mentioned above but a few pony's, pigs, ducks, chickens etc.... stuff i could have seen at my local city farm for FREE and a tractor that goes around a track. For the price of this i thought it was absolutely a waste of money, the park was also very run down, like you could tell no money was spent into the upkeep of the park such as a simple shelter for the horse!!!!
We went into cuddle club and thought that this was the best part of day, the staff were really helpful, friendly and the young lad was very knowledgeable of the animals, the only downside again it was rabbits and guinea pigs that children are most likely to have a pet of and thought a better variety of animals would make it much more fun and interesting for the youngsters.
The manager who owned Animal farm a couple of years ago did a much better job at running this park then the owner now, he had a passion for the farm (having met him personally), the owner now is letting it run into the ground, before long the park will most likely close down due to a lack of repeat customers.
