This Saturday, 25th May there is a great new adventure play area opening at Whipsnade Zoo, Bedfordshire. I was lucky enough to go and take a sneek peek last Saturday and it was very much worth it! I’ve got two young boys aged 2 and 5 who absolutely loved it!
This is the recent press release from Whipsnade which explains just what it’s all about:
“Little ones will soon be climbing new heights at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo with the launch of Hullabazoo Adventure Play - a brand new, outdoor play area.
Opening on Saturday 25 May, just in time for the half term holidays, Hullabazoo Adventure Play has been specially designed around animal movement, giving youngsters the chance to slither and slide as they run wild and test their agility against one another.
Taking pride of place in the play area will be Whipsnade Heights, made up of six giant towers for children to tackle before they climb cargo nets, clamber over rope bridges and slide down fireman's poles.
Other fantastic features in the Zoo's bespoke play area include a zip wire, monkey bars, balance beams, seesaws and climbing frames. And Whipsnade's youngest visitors haven't been forgotten about either, as they'll have their own dedicated play space with swings, slides, and a roundabout.
Marketing Manager at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, Laura Duffy said: "Whipsnade's brand new play area will be a big adventure for little ones. We hope they'll be inspired by watching our animals at play before exploring the new play equipment as part of a fantastic family day out."
Hullabazoo Adventure Play, located at the heart of the Zoo next to Hullabazoo Indoor Play and the farm, is suitable for children of all ages, and will be open 364 days of the year.”
As for Whipsnade itself, it’s a great family day out! We took our car into the zoo and drove around which the boys thought was amazing! They loved seeing the animals and being able to stop to take a closer look. Along with the Hullabazoo Adventure Play there is also the indoor play area which was another huge hit with my monkeys! Entry to both of the play areas is included in the zoo entry prices and with loads of special events coming up it, it’s well worth a visit!
