The long awaited, new soft play facility opened on Monday 19th March 2018 !

This fantastic new area has been specially designed for the Zoo complete with an animal theme!  Kids of all ages will love the colourful 4 level play frame, with special baby and toddler zones, cafe, seating and mezzanine area and there is also a party room for birthday parties.

Please note that the soft play area is suitable for children up to the age of 11 years.

Sessions are normally 2 hours, this may be subject to change during peak times.

Whilst the soft play building is located within the Zoo grounds, visitors are welcome to either visit both the Zoo and soft play, or only the soft play as it has a separate entrance and car park area.

Corporate and Season pass holders and children with a valid, purchased Zoo ticket for the same day, will receive a £2.50 discount , into the soft play (£3 per child).  Please note that only the number of children stated on the season or corporate pass gain the discount.  Children who gain free access to the Zoo who are not included in the season or corporate pass, will be charged full price entry to soft play, appropriate to their age.

Zoo visitors are welcome to use the new restaurant facility in this building, without using the soft play facilities.

There is no pre-booking of slots for the soft play – simply turn up on the day and pay at the reception desk within the soft play area.

The Soft play will be open from 10am each day and closes at 6pm.  Last admission is 1 hour before closing.

Parents are responsible for supervising their own children and are allowed on the frame with small children – there are clearly marked areas depending on the age of your child/children.

Children must remove shoes before going on to play on the frame and must wear socks.

We hope that you will enjoy this amazing new facility!
