2018 FAMILY FUN AT COMBINED THEME PARK, ZOO AND HOLIDAY RESORT 

 

Flamingo Land Resort is situated between York and the East coast, and this combined theme park, zoo and holiday resort is an ideal destination for a fun-packed family holiday. All areas of the park are open daily between 24th March and 4th November 2018 (with Winter Zoo open daily during November to March).

 

Easter Activities

Join in the Easter Egg Hunt in Dino Dig between Good Friday 30th March and Sunday 15th April.  Once a child has found an egg in the sand pit with a bucket and spade, it can be redeemed in the Dino-Stone Park Shop for a free egg-themed tasty treat.  Across every day of the Easter School Holidays you can also join in the Zoo Trail and complete your sheet whilst walking around our award-winning animal collection.  Anyone who completes the trail will receive a free mini-bag of Haribo sweets, and be entered into a prize draw to win a Family Annual Pass. 

 

Newest Attractions

Flamingo 1 - You can enjoy driving 2 seater family racing cars over a 380-metre circuit. Featuring a figure-of-eight format, you and your fellow competitors can enjoy side-by-side racing over three individual lanes. Whilst the majority of the circuit is outdoors, it also passes through our Hub building where spectators can watch the action from a dedicated elevated viewing area, whilst enjoying champion fish and chips. You can create your own best friend at Teddy Mountain, where after selecting your chosen bear, you can add stuffing to it yourself and select its outfit.

Peter Rabbit - Hit Cbeebies animated series Peter Rabbit arrived at Flamingo Land with a Peter Rabbit Adventure playground. Explore the Secret Tree House and hop along to Jeremy Fisher’s musical pond to explore giant instruments and learn about sounds from the giant lily pads. We are sure fans of all ages will love exploring Lily Bobtail’s Nature Discovery where you can climb on tunnels and find creepy crawly creatures in Bug Log.

You can meet Peter Rabbit himself, located by the Mansion House & Tea Rooms at 12.30pm and 3pm. You can also see Benjamin Bunny in the Sail Away farewell show at the exit of the theme park at 5pm (weather permitting). And brand new for 2018, you can listen to a Peter Rabbit and Lily Bobtail Story Time (£5pp).

Last August, our female Sumatran tiger cub Menya was born, so keep an eye out for her in our award winning animal collection.

Our rainbow lorikeet walk-in aviary is proving popular, where you can buy a pot of nectar to feed these brightly coloured birds.

Featuring 2 and 3 bedroom options with hot tubs, you will find these Riverside Cottages conveniently located alongside Riverside One. There is also the premium venue, The Gate House, available for hire, which is within the local village Kirby Misperton.

Staying guests have exclusive use of the swimming pool with flume slides and water jets, plus newly refurbished leisure facilities including a gym, sauna, jacuzzi, steam room and cafe.

Evening dining is also available on selected dates for non-residents and resort guests and is also available to hire for parties and corporate events.

Flamingo Land have been granted a licence for civil wedding ceremonies in the Mansion House, which is also situated adjacent to the local village church. A wedding could also incorporate animal interaction, such as a lemur experience or being married on the wooden decking located within the zoo. Christenings and private parties are also welcome.
