Peak and Off Peak

A great valued day out whenever you visit!

We have such a huge site with so much on offer, we do not open all areas during term time, especially some of the required school age areas.  So we can continue to offer great valued, reduced ‘off peak’ pricing, the outdoor red slide, chair-o-plane & mini jeep safari will not be open during the week during term time.  We also run 2 x hourly animal handling/talk sessions each day (opposed to half hourly during peak periods).


When are Off Peak / Peak periods?

  • Peak periods are classed as School & Bank Holidays and Weekends.  It’s when we open all areas of the park and have a bigger entertainment team to bring fun to all the family.
  • Off Peak periods are the days that the kids are at school so it’s a quieter experience but still lots of fun to be had for the little ones, home-schoolers and anyone else wanting to visit.
