Poor value for money
Aug 2019 • Family
The Safari itself is rather small and not much to see, it does take a long time to drive through, but that’s due to the traffic.
The rides are simply lame, to put it mildly. Some of them are included in your entry ticket snd some cost extra. I think given how little you get for your money it’s rather cheeky of them to charge extra for some of the rides. For example, go figure why does the little kids’ water ride in sea creatures-shaped boats has to be at extra cost? It’s very basic, lasts inly a minute or two. Speaking of that ride: the staff are incredibly rude, we got yelled at in the most disgusting manner because we simply didn’t understand the attendant that every child had to be accompanied by an adult, so instead of explaining it again the two guys started to shout and our children were horrified by them.
The laser show: please don’t bother unless you want to have a nap in rather comfy chairs.
Having read the previous reviews we brought own food and only purchased ice creams there, which was a good idea, since the food didn’t look too appealing and was clearly overpriced.
Very poor and basic animals sections, some of the terrariums were simply empty.
Ah, and absolutely filthy and poorly maintained toilets.
I can’t say that we suffered, but overall would not recommend. The trouble is that there is not much to do with young children in this area of Italy at all.

So much fun!
Aug 2019 • Family
My husband and I visited the Safari Park with our 3.5 yo daughter. We started our trip comfy in our car with the safari tour. My daughter had so much fun! She keep asking me to go back again. Then we went to farmhouse to make a tour with pony paying 2 euro.
Then started the show birds, very beautiful! The end part was magical!!
Then we ate in the dinosaurs picnic area.
We walk around, then went to theatre, and after we did all the Luna Park area. Note that it’s everything free, for adults and children!!
So much fun!
The train tour is simple and nice to do for a relaxing time. Train ticket must to be pay in the cashier.
Was a very lovely day.

Great day out.
Sep 2018 • Family
We took our boy who is 2 and a half, and he thoroughly enjoyed getting up close with the animals in the car. So did we... The animals all looked very healthy which makes a change from a lot of European zoos, too.
We drove round the safari twice just because we could, then got out to visit the reptile house and aquarium which were both well stocked with interesting animals. Then we saw the lemurs and the falconry show which was very good indeed, despite some of the "tricks" being pretty unnatural. There's ponies for the little ones to ride, but they do look a little tired. And then we saw a sea lion show which the little one loved and then a wander through the Jurassic section and over to the insectarium.
We didn't even see any of the shows in the Roman arena or go on any of the rides... And we still managed to spend 5+ hours fully occupied not even stopping to eat.
If you're in the area, it is well worth a visit.

still a great venue
Jul 2018 • Family
Its a great park and its priced fairly. I think however the train should be free to prevent so many polluting cars passing between the animals
Its my second review of the park and my main reason is to make a comment on the accessibility to its prime audience, children,
There is a much welcomed pool/ stage for the sealions but I think there is a problem in that there is nowhere that children can see into the pool which is about 1.30 high. Is it really impossible to create a line of raised benches where kids can see in without having to be sat on shoulders? On this point the announcements say the show is starting now so we ran through the site to arrive 20 mins before it started meaning I had my daughter on my shoulders in anticipation of the show for 20 mins (no time given) plus the duration of the show which is tough in heat. There is a very good raised platform in the reptile area but there also isnt one in the aquarium area again meaning young children cant see in without being lifted.

It's getting better
May 2018 • Family
Still I believe we are not going here for the safari couse we could see more exciting animals walking down the street probably, however the all experience is improving. The birds show was certainly worth the ticket. The fun park will need some sort of update soon but still when kids finds funny activities for free it makes our day.

We visited (2 adults ) on a very hot afternoon on our way to Mxp airport, the safari drive through only took around 10mins animals look healthy an looked after , the theme park part was aimed very much at children under 10years old . There were a few shows on we watched a bit but the tent was overcrowded an very hot inside so we left . We didn't try the food that was being sold . The shops on site were very expensive for any toys / souvenirs. The toilets we found awful , well for a British woman I was shocked to find "squat pans " which were quite dirty an wet all around ! I wouldn't recommend this place too highly compared to British safari/theme parks.

Nice place - poor customer service
Aug 2017 • Family
This was a great place for my kids.
However information available online on Safaripark.it is only in Italian (except the payment platform).
Spent more than one hour trying to purchase tickets online with 20% discount, error message received online stated that my bank had rejected my card, called my bank and was informed that they had not received an authorisation request. Called Safaripark and was told to use a different credit card, tried 4 other cards, called again to learn that only Italian credit credit cards are excepted. This information is clearly missing online. emails in English to Safaripark are not responded to, Safaripark confirm to own above link, while they link payments to a service provider. Despite above very disturbing situation Safaripark did not accept to take responsibility and/or grant the 20% discount to a NON ITALIAN family - very disturbing!

The safari was great
Jul 2017 • Family
Was vacationing in nearby Meina when we saw the flyers for Safari park and decided to go visit the park. Was easy to find by car.
The safari was great, we were impressed. The animals and the area is well taken care of.
We went to the rides but most of them require a minimum height of 120cm. It's a good place to go to. A lot to do and see.

Good but could be great
Apr 2017 • Family
Positives, well set out, good value entry price, acceptable lunch price, good mix of animals, rides and other entertainment. Some childrens rides were in fact free which I hadnt anticipated
Negative, 6D at extra cost is badly maintained, it could not run to capacity as not enough glasses, the screen was a little out of focus (with glasses) or glasses were not up to the job. Toilets were not positive, apart from them being the whole in the ground style there are not enough so generally swimming pools.
Would still recommend it but as the season goes on the negatives need addressing.

Nice place to visit with young children
Sep 2016 • Friends
The fun park is great for families with young children, but not so much for grownups and teenagers. We went there on a rainy day during low season, and the park was almost empty. The fun park also could use a bit of work, everything was a bit out dated, but still worked.
The safari park however was excellent. You can drive through it in your own car and really see the animals from up close.

If you are looking for a day filling outing, then this isn't the best place to go, but still worth visiting, especially the safari. Prices are a bit high for what you get (especially in low season when not all attractions are available) and for a park that's largely dependent on tourism, you would think they would speak some English.....
Service however was very friendly.
