Budapest Zoo and Holnemvolt Park

Going to Budapest with kids soon and we are wondering about Holnemvolt Park. Both RS and LP guides indicate this is part of the zoo yet this does not seem to be reflected on the Zoo website.

I also read that this place is now shutdown again even though the zoo only took it over a few years ago.

Can anyone who has visited actually shed some light on to this place's existence or how it may or may not actually work in conjunction with a zoo visit. It sounds like something that would definitely enhance our kids day out at the zoo.

To begin with the zoo is a blast without the old amusement park. So either way the kids will have fun. The last time we went to the zoo was mid 2016 and at that time the park was open, but there really wasn't much there and they charged a few hundred forint extra so we didn't go. The web page says part of it will be open by the end of 2016, but nothing has ever been constructed on schedule in Hungary, so don't hold your breath.

My wife and kids love the Budapest Zoo so we will be back there in two weeks.
