Flamingo Land Theme Park & Zoo is now fully open, packed with great ideas to keep you entertained until Sunday 30th October 2016. This goes for our Resort Village too, including Run-Gym-Swim, our extensively upgraded Leisure Complex and The Club, our exclusive entertainment venue.
If you have been craving adrenaline fuelled thrills, then our collection of 8 extreme rides are ready and waiting. This includes Hero, our most recent addition, designed to simulate the breath-taking sensations of a superhero in flight. There is also the Guinness World Record Breaking Mumbo Jumbo, which claimed the world's steepest drop in 2009!
A great choice of junior and family rides awaits too, especially the prehistoric themed attractions of Dino-Stone Park. Here you'll find the awesome Pterodactyl, putting you in a spin 45 meters above the ground. You can also enjoy the twisty-turny experience of Twistosaurus and a pedal powered flight on Cyclosaur, plus an amazing collection of animatronic dinosaurs and life-sized dinosaur skeletons.
Then take a trip down to our vibrant outdoor entertainment area, Riverside One. Benefitting from an all-weather stage, here you can enjoy a packed programme including our daily Farewell Show, celebrity guest appearances and some great tribute bands. Alternatively, simply relax beside Riverside One's captivating illuminated waterfall with a selection of drinks and snacks or a delicious alfresco dinning experience.

Enjoy the UK's Most Popular Zoo
We are sure that you will quickly discover what makes Flamingo Land the UK's most visited zoo**. With over 140 species of reptiles, mammals and birds, you can enjoy a voyage of discovery through the animal kingdom. From the plains of Africa, though our immersive wallaby and lemur walkthrough enclosures to the wonders of the UK's largest penguin pool, Penguin Coast, Flamingo Land is sure to delight every animal lover. And no visit would be complete without catching up with the progress of the Rothschild's giraffe calves that were born in 2015.
New for 2016
Summer will see the introduction of Zanzibar, an energetic live production show. Based on the lives of swashbuckling pirates on their galleon ship, it will feature our sword fighting acrobatic team along with plenty of special effects. This new performance attraction is sure to become a must see, as it interacts with guests in Plaza Square intermittently throughout each day.
The second phase of extensive upgrades to Run-Gym-Swim, our luxurious leisure complex, will be completed for the start of the 2016 season. So, resort guests can now enjoy an extended swimming pool with counter-current swim jets, 2 flume slides and an infinity edge.
After the introduction of Riverside Cottages in 2015, the addition of the newly renovated Gate House further extends our brick-built Signature Collection. For those who wish to stay in a secluded, private location, The Gate House is ideal, situated just before the park entrance in the picturesque village of Kirby Misperton. We are also offering a Platinum Plus range of holiday homes for 2016 and introducing Maple Grove. This new development further extends capacity, ensuring even more guests will be able to enjoy the delights Flamingo Land has to offer.
From summer 2016 we will be introducing an all-new Rothschild Giraffe Animal Encounter. Construction of the venue is currently underway, including an elevated viewing platform. After hearing all about this spectacular, but endangered species, guests who have selected the VIP option will also be able to feed the giraffes.
Later in 2016 we are expecting the arrival of Chanua, another female black rhino, who will join mother Samira and baby Olmoti at the new Selous Black Rhino Reserve. Featuring an elevated platform with excellent internal and external viewing, this is rapidly becoming another Flamingo Land must see attraction.
