Food not suitable for everyone

As a Muslim, I am unable to eat from their restaurant and we are not allowed to bring in our own food. Making it an inconvenience as we have to leave the premises to have a snack or lunch. Meaning we are not spending enough time in there for the children to really enjoy it. My son loves spending time ther since he was 2 years old.

Ok

Not many butterflies due to the Pandemic, other attractions are ok. The food, coffee and gift shop are surprisingly good. I'm glad we didn't pay full price.
