February Half Term (10th to 18th) & Subsequent Weekends

During the half term holidays, from 10th until 18th February, plus every subsequent weekend until Sunday 18th March, The Pirates of Zanzibar will be making a welcome return.  With performances at 11:00am, 1:00pm and 3:00pm each day, our Pirates of Zanzibar show provides great live entertainment for all the family. Telling the story of a crew descended from the infamous Spice Pirates, simply come on over to The Black Heart galleon in Plaza Square to hear Captain Plunder's tales of the high seas, while his crew bring their spice stealing stories to life.

Dino-Stone Park is well worth a visit too. Here you will discover fun and excitement that all ages can enjoy, including a selection of themed rides, animatronic dinosaurs and our Dino-Dig fossil hunt.

Our Peter Rabbit™ and Lily Bobtail characters will also be out and about, with two meet and greet sessions available each day at 12.30pm and 2.30pm. So, don’t forget to join them at the Peter Rabbit™ Adventure playground.

A small selection of rides for younger children are available too, including the Muddy Duck Tractors, Jungle Carousel, Mischief Mansion and Wacky Races. We’re sure this will provide another great way to keep them entertained.
