Details

NEW for this summer is "Compare & Compete" - our interactive family explorers trail. Find each trail station dotted around our park to discover who you are most like in terms of height, how much you eat in a day, how far you travel in a day, how high you can jump and what your wingspan may be.

This is an activity that the whole family can take part in - as you compete against each other to see what wildlife creature you are most like!

The extra activities for this event are included in the standard admission price.
