Flamingo Land

Flamingo Land

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).

Thrilling Theme Park
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.

Be amazed at our daily Pirates of Zanzibar outdoor show on the Black Heart galleon ship, with singing, dancing, special effects and acrobatics!

Award Winning Zoo
Flamingo Land is one of the UK’s most visited zoos (Source: Visit England). With 140 species of reptiles, mammals and birds, you can enjoy an amazing view of the animal kingdom. A variety of Keeper Talks and a sea lion and bird show are included in your admission. For unrestricted views, meander through the lemur, wallaby and rainbow lorikeet walkways. You can book yourself into a choice of Animal Experiences in advance to enjoy during your visit.

Short Breaks and a Campsite
Flamingo Land is an ideal base for a short break or longer holiday, located at the edge of the North York Moors National Park. The Flamingo Land Holiday Village is situated right next to the theme park and offers luxury accommodation from holiday homes to premium lodges.

New for 2018 are our Lifestyle Holiday Homes – luxurious self-catering accommodation for up to six guests. Featuring one double bedroom and a bunk room for two children, the living area also includes a sofa bed for two extra guests.

And for guests who want to be at the heart of the action, 4 self-catering cottages are available. Featuring 2 and 3 bedroom options with hot tubs, you will find these Riverside Cottages conveniently located alongside Riverside One. There is also the premium venue, The Gate House, available for hire, which is within the local village Kirby Misperton.

Alternatively, you can bring your own touring caravan, motorhome or tent, or buy your own holiday home. Staying guests have exclusive use of the swimming pool with flume slides and water jets, plus newly refurbished leisure facilities including a gym, sauna, jacuzzi, steam room and cafe. There is also a 9 hole golf course. The Club is a premium entertainment venue for Holiday Village guests.

The Mansion House
The Mansion House & Tea Rooms was renovated a couple of years ago and allows guests to step back in time and enjoy traditional English refreshments, lovingly served in elegant surroundings. Evening dining is also available on selected dates for non-residents and resort guests and is also available to hire for parties and corporate events.

Flamingo Land has been granted a licence for civil wedding ceremonies in the Mansion House, which is also situated adjacent to the local village church. A wedding could also incorporate animal interaction, such as a lemur experience or being married on the wooden decking located within the zoo. Christenings and private parties are also welcome.
