PARK INFORMATION

We want you to have a great time!

Here's all the important information you’ll need to remember to keep you safe during your visit.

Please familiarise yourself with this and the following information before you arrive to ensure you have the best possible experience.

Rainy Day Pass

Pre-booked tickets only.

Rainy Day return tickets are a goodwill gesture on our part. Should it rain heavily or continuously during your visit, then we may offer you a free return visit. These tickets are issued on the day at the discretion of the manager and are valid for three months from the date of issue. Please use them within this time as we are unable to extend the expiry date.

Rainy Day tickets can only be used once and will be retrieved on your return visit. If you lose or misplace your stamped ticket, or it is stolen, we cannot issue another and you will not be able to use the free return visit.

Rainy Day tickets are only valid for the number of adults/children listed on the ticket, any additional members attending are required to pay the full entrance price.

We will only accept original stamped tickets, photos or photocopies will not be accepted.

You will need to present & return your rainy-day ticket at the admission kiosk.

Anyone without a valid stamped return ticket will be refused entry to the park.

We are delighted to offer free parking whilst visiting. Accessible parking is located at the entrance of the park / Lottie’s Coffee Lounge.

We love animals! Please help us avoid any distress to them by leaving your pets at home. Dogs and pets are not allowed onsite at the park except for registered assistance dogs. Owners of dogs left in cars will be politely asked to return their dog home before returning to the centre if they wish.

We are pleased to say dogs are welcome to enjoy our outside patio at Lottie’s Coffee Lounge where they can enjoy a delicious range of treats, especially made for our four-legged friends!

If you require any further information or have any concerns, please speak to a catering manager.

Animal Feed at the park

Please be aware that due to the nature of the park and the various animal and bird diets, our animal feed may contain nuts, shellfish and other known allergens, traces of which may be found around the park and in some of the animal feed that can be purchased from our shop and kiosk. For those with severe allergies, please ensure you bring any medication you may require. We are happy to provide disposable gloves to anyone who would like them. If you require any further information or have any concerns, please speak to a park manager.
