New Forest Theme Parks
You perhaps wouldn’t initially think of the New Forest as being a home to theme parks! We are in fact home to one of the UK’s most famous family theme parks, Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park as well as being within easy reach of two other theme parks.
Read on to find out more and plan your family day out…
Paultons Park, Home of Peppa Pig World
At Peppa Pig World, not only can you get to meet Peppa and family, but enjoy themed rides and an indoor play area. There’s also Daddy Pig’s Big Tummy café and Peppa’s Toy Shop, the largest (and only) dedicated Peppa Pig shop in the World!
You don’t have to be a Peppa Pig fan to enjoy a visit here, Paultons Park is also home to a multitude of attractions for all ages, from the exhilarating Magma and Cobra rides through to the Water Kingdom with super soakers, water jets and tipping buckets – a great way to cool off on a hot day!
Look out for daily penguin feeding with keeper talks, the garden-themed Trekking Tractors ride and Tiny Tots Town playground. There are animals and birds that you can see and plenty of places to stop for a quick snack or a bite to eat.
It’s no wonder that Paultons Park been voted best paid for attraction for 3 years running and has won several awards including a VisitEngland gold award.
Plus, each year, new attractions and rides are added so even if you’ve visited before, it’s well worth another visit.
Not far from Ringwood, on the outskirts of Bournemouth, you will find the family theme park, Adventure Wonderland. This award-winning theme park offers a full day’s fun. The park features over thirty rides and attractions including the Dragon’s Drop Megaslide, Battle Boats Water Ride and Ghostly Galleon.
