Paultons Park and the UK's only Peppa Pig World are now even bigger and better than ever!
Paultons Park has two amazing new attractions opening in 2018!
Opening for February Half Term (11th Feb) is Little Africa. See the Park’s own little corner of Africa and discover the amazing animals and birds of the savannah. From Meerkats, to Porcupines, Lizards to Mongoose there are animals of all shapes and size to delight and entertain. Visit the nocturnal house to see the Fennec Foxes, Giant Pouched Rats and Scorpions before venturing back in to the picturesque free flying aviary to meet Trumpeter Hornbills, Black-Crowned Night Herons and many, many more fascinating species.
Paultons is of course home to the world’s first and UK exclusive Peppa Pig World and from the 16th May 2018 there will be more Peppa fun than ever with the opening of a large new expansion. The highlight of the extension will be two fun new rides, The Queen’s Flying Coach Ride and Grampy Rabbit’s Sailing Club. The Queen’s Flying Coach Ride will take families on a royal tour around part of Peppa Pig World in individual coaches starting from the top of the majestic Queen’s Castle. Children and parents will also be able to hop aboard brightly coloured boats at Grampy Rabbit’s Sailing Club where they can join the adventure and sail around Peppa Pig World and discover Pirate Island!
As well as the new rides, there will be plenty of new Peppa friends to meet, including Gerald Giraffe and Mr Bull and his maintenance team with their digger and crane! Paultons Park has also built an additional dedicated baby care centre and a new Peppa- themed catering outlet called The Queen’s Kitchen!
Peppa Pig World has over 5 acres of fully themed fun! There are already 7 fabulous rides including Miss Rabbit’s Helicopter Flight, Peppa’s Big Balloon Ride, Grandpa’s Little Train, George’s Dinosaur Adventure and you can even ride in a ‘cloud’ around Windy Castle! Peppa Pig World features a huge indoor play area, Georges Spaceship Playzone and superb animated themed attractions including a chance to visit Peppa and her family in their house! Peppa Pig World is also home to Daddy Pig’s Big Tummy café and Peppa’s Toy Shop, the largest (and only!) dedicated Peppa Pig shop in the World!
Lost Kingdom is an amazing Dinosaur Theme Park World that features two world class family rollercoasters, life-like animatronic dinosaurs, Jurassic themed family rides, a Prehistoric adventure play park and an amazing opportunity to come face to face with ‘living’, walking Dinosaurs!
Guests can soar high into the skies upon on The Flight of the Pterosaur, a mighty and unique suspended coaster, which takes family adventurers swooping high and low around a prehistoric landscape.
The Dinosaur Tour Co. takes visitors on an exciting 4x4 jeep expedition to come face to face with some of the largest and most fearsome dinosaurs to have walked the planet.
Only the bravest explorers will take on Velociraptor. Those who dare to board this breath-taking family boomerang coaster will sense the speed and agility of the Velociraptor as drops and sweeps around tight bends and through ancient tunnels.
Everyday there is an incredible opportunity to meet ‘living’ tame (ish) walking dinosaurs at Alive – Dinosaur Encounter.
Younger explorers can enjoy iconic views across Lost Kingdom on Temple Heights, choose between riding in a huge dinosaur egg or giant stone on the swirling Boulder-Dash ride, ride the cute mini-coaster, Dino Chase and let off steam at the Little Explorers’ Play Park.
Discover Lost Kingdom and experience a journey to a lost land that will never be forgotten.
Birds of a Feather is the brand new 4D Film for 2018 at the Paultons Show Street Cinema. Movie-goers will be thrown into the on-screen action while experiencing the cinema’s 4D effects including specially-designed moving chairs, water sprays, blasts of air, leg ticklers, and even bubbles!
Critter Creek is a world of strange mixed-up creatures known as the ‘Curious Critters’! Meet the Fly-ger or say hello to the Horned Swamp Donkey! You can take a ride on the Cat-o-pillar rollercoaster and discover enormous colourful plants the likes of which have never been seen before. Critter Creek is also home to Professor Blast’s Discovery Express Train, a delightful journey for little ones and Beastie Burrow, a real life bug emporium complete with fascinating and unusual insects, fish and lizards!
Top for thrills is the Park’s breathtaking ride, EDGE. Riders swoop and spin through the air reaching a height of 15 metres on a giant disc that travels along a 90-metre track featuring a ‘camelback’ hill to create an amazing floating sensation. EDGE was the first ride of its type in the UK and perfectly complements the Park’s other thrilling rides including The Cobra and, last year’s exhilarating new attraction Magma. The largest of Paultons three rollercoasters, The Cobra features an exciting combination of twists, drops and turns that have made it a great family favourite whilst Magma launches riders 25 metres up in to the sky only to drop them back down in to the heart of a smoking volcano!
Smaller children will love Water Kingdom! It’s a whole world of water jets, giant tipping buckets, sprays, fountains, and super soakers for the little ones to enjoy and explore. This huge 8,500ft2 kids’ splash park paradise features more than 20 different ways of getting wet and has a seated patio area nearby so parents can relax whilst watching the fun.
Younger children also adore the beautiful garden-themed Trekking Tractors ride, Seal Falls and the Digger
Daily penguin feeding sessions also take place throughout the year, featuring an entertaining keeper talk which gives visitors a chance to learn more about these unusual and often humorous birds.
