TOURISTS have condemned a tourist attraction in Wales as being too touristy. “poor man’s Disneyland”.
Powys’ Dan Yr Ogof, located in Wales, is the largest UK show cave and has been used for filming shows like Doctor Who.
The park also features a dinosaur park, which is the largest in the country. It has more than 200 statues of dinosaurs.
Some tourists were however left unimpressed by the caves and called it too. “Disney-like”With very little information.
According to local media, Tourist David M wrote about his trip to TripAdvisor: “It was more of a Disney-type experience with 100+ plastic dinosaurs, very little distance between visitors, and a free for everyone once you got to the Caves.
“It was dumbed down. Not enough explanation. No guides – disappointing.”
Other people agreed with the one who called it a “poor man’s Disneyland”.
They stated: “The added attractions – dinosaurs, horses, etc. seemed irrelevant to the central cave experience, sort of random add-ons to result in a poor man’s Disneyland and to justify the rather high prices.”
Although some people didn’t enjoy the attraction, most reviews were positive with more than half giving five stars.
One person wrote: “Fantastically organised, beautiful show caves. Pouring with rain all day but still had a fantastic day.”
Another person shared the following: “We enjoyed the Showcaves. Our 4-year-old granddaughter was fascinated by the dinosaurs.
“A great family day out.”
Someone else stated it. “Wales’s best found secret”Place to Visit
