Took my five year old here for a day out but the place is pretty small and only took us around an hour or two to go though it, that was probably us stringing it out slightly. Probably not some where I would rush back to.

Nicely designed indoor rainforest with lots of happy interesting creatures to learn about. My kids loved the little bridges and wandering through the tunnels, aswell as the lovely wee shop at the end. Nice and warm too so perfect for Scottish weather days, combined with the indoor play area, arcades and restaurants it's perfect for rainy day fun.

Amazonia is a great little place hidden behind m and ds theme park. My youngest daughter loved it as she's Animal daft but you could be through it and back out in about 15 minutes so unless you get a good deal in my opinion it's not worth paying full price and be prepared for the tropical heat. It's a... More

I travelled from Fife with my 5 year old son for a day out at M&Ds, armed with my Spree book which effectively admitted him free to both the theme park and Amazonia. This attraction in itself is really well laid out, with a nice mixture of plants, paths and bridges over the water feature which is the centrepiece of... More

Amazonia is nice day out, wasn't too busy so you had plenty space for viewing the animals. Only thing was the animal handling was a little crowded which was due to the little kids jumping about and not giving enough space for others which again couldn't helped

Went along with friends as they suggested to go. Wasn't as big as I imagined but size isn't everything. We all took some fab pics and spent a good hour or two in there. Probably wouldn't go back as I feel I've seen it now.. but none the less. Can't remember it being overly expensive at the time either so... More

Thank you for your review on Amazonia. I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy your visit and would like to explain some of the points you have made. Our Burmese python, Eric, is housed in an enclosure that measures 8 foot (length) x 8 foot (height) x 4 foot (depth). Snakes generally require an enclosure length that measures... More
