"I just wanted to say what an absolutely fantastic party my son had with Noahs ark today. We had 10 children and the party room with hot food. All staff were helpful, approachable and couldn't do enough for us. The food was lovely, really hot and tasty. The kids ate all of it. The party room is fantastic, nice area to sort the cake out and everything we needed was provided.Thank you for allowing us to have the party at your Zoo.. all kids said what an amazing time they had. We love the zoo and how well kept the animals are and have been at least 10 times over the last 5 years.. however I felt I should give a review of today as the party ran so smoothly. We came at 10.30am and left around 4pm and the day went so smoothly. Thank you to your lovely staff, and for providing such a great party package."
