Flamingo Land Theme Park, Zoo and Resort
2018 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).
If you are looking for white knuckle thrills, there is a sensational collection of 8 extreme rides, including the latest roller coaster Hero that puts visitors in a superhero flying position before swooping them around a track. There is also the Guinness World Record Breaking Mumbo Jumbo, with the steepest drop (2009).
In addition there is a great choice of junior and family rides. All the attractions in Dino-Stone Park have a dinosaur theme. Soar 45 metres into the air on the Pterodactyl swing, spin on the family coaster Twistosaurus and pedal on Cyclosaur. See animatronic dinosaurs, life-size Dino skeletons and search for dinosaur bones in the Dino Dig sand.
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 chip. 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 Room 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). And brand new for 2018, you can listen to a Peter Rabbit and Lily Bobtail

The Selous Black Rhino Reserve has recently welcomed Baringo II, a new male who is part of an international breeding programme. He has joined the 3 females already housed there. We have also now welcomed 2 new male white rhinos in May, both aged 2, replacing the 2 mature males that have recently moved to other animal collections.
