It was a great chance to see the animals in the evening when they are usually more active so had a better chance of seeing them. I have heard so many stories of friends travelling miles to an animal park only to not see a single animal out as it was the wrong time of the day.
That was not a problem on this visit, we saw loads of animals. The day had been quite hot and muggy so with the evening drawing in the temperature had dropped a bit which had made the humans and animals more comfortable!

As an added treat to seeing the animals, various performances were put on around the park, these included flame throwers, a pair of massive penguins walking around (people in costumes, not real!!) and a pair of pigeons who would randomly squat down and poo out chocolates...it was hilarious to see all the kids running to the pigeons whilst squatting down to see what was being deposited!
The Rise of the Dinosaurs exhibition was a must see for the boys as they are dinosaur mad! The statues were amazing and the details on every single one were exceptional.
Along side the static dinosaurs, `Velma` the living Velociraptor was walking around the park, amazing all the children. I have to say she was amazing.
Whilst visiting the giraffes we found the fossil dig on the dinosaur trail, the kids were having so much fun we had to drag them away!!
There is another Sunset Party in the Park scheduled for the 5th of July so if you want to have a fun and adventurous evening with the family you can book tickets here.
Other local bloggers who attended the event have written about their experiences - my bestie theprmummy, and the lovely Chelseamamma and CharlieMoos.
Our tickets to the Sunset Party were provided free of charge by Marwell Wildlife, we were not required to write a blog review but I felt that we had too good a time to keep quiet!
