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).
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).
