You should get an email tomorrow with all the details.

ok, thanks. I presume they don;t take the money until it's all ok'd and there's enough people.

over 2000 people have signed up now and the deal is on

i have also brought 3 tickets (good price for a day out)

normally go to west mids safari park (via tesco vouchers) or chester zoo (which is amazing)

but willing to give this a chance (only live up the road in stafford), thou if you read reviews on trip advisor the place gets a slating

Hi, thats how I understand the rules, if they dont get enough sign up they take no money & no one gets the deal, if there is enough sign up then they take the money & you get an email link to the coupon. Fingers crossed they get enough as this looks fab never been there & the kids will love it

woop stafford woop!!

It'll be a good day out with the kids but don't expect anything like Chester or Bristol zoo!

The wife had this email this morning and ordered some . I have to say i thought groupon would be some kind of con, you know like when you walk into venture to have your bargain photo done and walk out up sold and have spent £800 . We have ordered meals out, hair cuts etc with no problem just a great price with them and no hassle !.

Yes, reviews not too good, but for a fiver each, it's half a day out! It's only down the road for me from Wolverhampton, so if it's not very good, I know it didn;t cost me a lot and I won't be returning, on the other hand, local organisations do need support to continue.

The last time we visited Dudley Zoo was 5 months ago (after about 20 years), and I have to say it was pretty drab and run down, although I could see they were starting to do some renovation work. Anyway, the little one doesnt care about any of that so it will be a great day out for her. Have some heat.

Have to agree with jaykay1975 I thought the zoo was a little depressing personally but little ones loved it

You are in for a shock - Dudly Zoo is dire!
Save your money and visit Chester Zoo again.
I live in Dudley (3 miles from zoo) so i know what i am talking about.

you just have to read the T&C's / restrictions, ignore the rrp and think is it worth the offer price

had loads of restaurant meals, go karting, pottery painting, ten pin bowling....no problems

one thing though is to be aware that for restaurants the voucher has a value.....say you buy a voucher giving you a £50 meal for £20....so if your meals exceed £50, day £80....you still need to pay £30 on top of your £20 youve paid for the voucher....some divs get caught out with this (otherwise people would ordered the most expensive dishes off the menu!)

I went to Dudley zoo about 7 years ago and i was quite surprised how good it was lol. Maybe i will change my mind this time after reading peoples comments on here but for a fiver i doubt it.

I must admit I live near dudley castle and it is a good day out specially now they have improved it loads, they even have a walk through lema enclosure and the guides there put on impressive shows for the kids. I would really recommend the dungeon show. It is a great day out for you and your kids and for that price it's a bargain that needs to be HOT HOT HOT !!!!!!!!!!!!
