Brought my son here today for a change of scenery. Just over 1 hour drive away, managed to walk around the forest, stopping for photos and listening to talks, lunch and a drink, all within 1 hour. It's not a massive place but is a good day if your local. The seating area was fairly dirty, food on the floor and over high chairs. Glad we had a packed lunch. Plenty of space outside for a picnic. I'd probably not go back, but only because of the distance away now. If your handy it's worth taking the kids.
Definitely a great place for kids. Me and my boyfriend came here to spend some time walking around and seeing the monkeys. It took us about an hour to have a stroll around the place and we were done. But if you have kids then there is plenty more to do - places to stop and learn, a park to play in, trampolines, face paint etc.. You couldn't get close to the monkeys, which is understandable, but it seems to be advertised to suggest you 'walk amongst them' but if they walk on the path you're in then the staff ask you to step aside and wait until the money has passed. Not a bad place, but more suited to families with young children, rather than a place for adults to see.
