In article ,
The park is geared up to extract the maximum amount of money from
parents with kids

What about those parents without kids? Do they get a discount?

OT, but I've always been far more amused by the fact that there cannot
be many places in the UK where you can have Sunday lunch on a steam
train whilst watching the elephants and rhinos :-).

But only for 30 seconds on the journey.

If you visit the park with the elephants and rhinos I'd recommend that you
don't drive your own car around but pay an extra (5?) and take the safari
where the driver will drive off road to the animals. You can also play
hippos with real hippos.
BTW they don't have monkeys etc. that may wreck the car.

West Midlands gave up on monkeys after they kept all escaping. Clever
little blighters - some of them learnt to get into the wheel arches of
larger vehicles such as land rovers, others managed to pull down overhanging
trees... Striping the vinyl off roofs (showing my age here - Mark 3
Cortinas anyone?) was also a preferred pass-time.

Pity though - the fun bit of Longleat is watching the monkeys wait for the
cars to get far enough into the compound that they can't back out and then
removing everything that can be removed.
