With huge adventure playgrounds, kids will absolutely love how much there is to do at Cannon Hall Farm.

Pyramid towers, thrilling slides and awesome climbing frames will keep your little ones entertained for hours. The puzzling tube maze is the largest one in Europe and popular with the older kids too, it’s the perfect place for a game of hide and seek!

Younger children have a special play area too, with plenty of equipment tailored for toddler-sized hands and feet to explore.

Please note that age and height restrictions apply to some equipment.

Magna Playgrounds


Magna has two fantastic playgrounds; go all out at SCI-TEK where children of all ages can explore and learn through play, with textures, colours and lots to discover. AQUA-TEK comes with it’s own splash warning, as it’s an adventure in all things water!

SCI-TEK: Kids can bounce their way across multiple trampolines or get a little dizzy as they spin around on the spinning bowls and tilted roundabouts. Twisting slides, out-of-this-world rockets and castles fit for a king and queen make Magna’s playground quite extraordinary!

AQUA-TEK – Re-opening on Sat 26 May: Be warned – you will get wet! Children can spray, mist and squirt their way around this super fun park; bring a towel and on hot days kids can wear swimming gear (because soggy clothes are never fun!)

Magna has special prices for outdoor play areas.

Yorkshire Wildlife Park

Little monkeys will have a whale of a time both indoors and out at Yorkshire Wildlife Park’s variety of play areas. Kids can become a ‘jungle VIP’ swinging around in Monkey Playhouse with a fab selection of slides, handcrafted walkways and wooden baboons!

The Zoom Super Slide Barn does exactly what it says on the tin – with a 20ft vertical slide, it’s one for the adrenaline lovers! Make sure that your children are wearning long sleeved tops, long trousers and socks to avoud friction burns.

Outside kids can play on the Big Bugs Play Area with a giant pyramid tent that’s perfect for picnics, whilst your children play on the Giant Bugs. Or head over to the Oasis Adventure Play Area which is fun for all ages! Zoom down the zip line, whizz down slides and clamber up the climnbing frames.

The ALL NEW Jungle Lookout play area lets children climb and swing like the lemurs inside giant wooden tree forts. Obstacle courses, slides and wooden jungle huts make for great fun!
