Flamingo Land Resort Yorkshire is situated between York and Scarborough and this combined theme park, zoo and holiday resort is an ideal destination for a fun-packed family holiday.
Flamingo Land is a one-price family adventure park with over 100 rides and attractions including the UK’s only motorbike launch roller coaster, the free-falling Cliffhanger and Kumali the suspended looping roller coaster.
It has the UK’s largest privately owned zoo and is home to many exotic species including giraffes, lions, rhinoceros and tigers.
If you can’t fit all this into one day, don’t worry there is also an on-site Holiday Village, with log cabins, six-berth luxury holiday homes and a large site for tents or touring caravans. Holiday customers can also enjoy the leisure complex, evening entertainment plus unlimited access to the theme park and zoo.
Peter Rabbit is now at Flamingo Land – and he has a special adventure playground for youngsters to explore. Visit the Secret Tree House and hop along to Jeremy Fisher’s musical pond to explore giant instruments and learn about sounds from the giant lily pads. Fans of all ages will love exploring Lily Bobtail’s Nature Discovery where you can crawl through tunnels and find creepy crawly creatures in Bug Log.
The Peter Rabbit adventure playground is located next to the Mansion House & Tea Rooms and is visible from the restaurant’s main entrance. Story time with Peter Rabbit and Lily Bobtail will be back in 2019. Find out more at www.flamingoland.co.uk
Flamingo 1 – Enjoy driving two-seater family racing cars over a 380-metre circuit. Featuring a figure-of-eight format, you and your fellow competitors can enjoy side-by-side racing over three individual lanes.

You can create your own best friend at Teddy Mountain, where after selecting your chosen bear, you can add stuffing to it yourself and select its outfit.
Don’t miss the red panda family – the youngest of whom, Shifu, was born in early autumn and is proving a big hit with visitors.
The rainbow lorikeet walk-in aviary is proving popular, where you can buy a pot of nectar to feed these brightly coloured birds.
Thrilling theme park
If you are looking for white knuckle thrills, there is a sensational collection of rides. These include roller coaster Hero, which puts visitors in a superhero flying position before swooping them around a track. There is also the Guinness World Record Breaking Mumbo Jumbo, whose 112° vertical drop saw it enter the record books as the ‘world’s steepest roller coaster made from steel’, a position it held until July 1, 2011.
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 the daily Pirates of Zanzibar outdoor show on the Black Heart galleon ship, with singing, dancing, special effects and acrobatics!

A variety of Keeper Talks and a sea lion and bird show are included within 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.
