Not for the squeamish, or perhaps it's one way to confront one of your phobias. The petting zoo was a particular highlight, but they is also a brilliant cocktail bar. I'd never tried scorpion in a cocktail before my visit!

Expected a slightly bigger place, but great fun. We had a great time at the "Beer Garden" which is not garden, but a small indoors outdoors. Felt very grand in the leather chair with my Cocoanut Freak.
