New for 2016
At the start of July Flamingo Land launched the brand new attraction 'The Pirates of Zanzibar’, an amazing live performance show. The show tells tales of our swashbuckling Tanzanian pirates’ adventures, and features acrobatic sword-fighting action and plenty of special effects. This will interact around our guests in Plaza Square in the Metropolis area 3 times across the day - 11am, 1pm and 3pm.
The second phase of the leisure complex The Splash Zone has been completed for staying Resort guests, and includes a larger swimming pool with an infinity pool edge, counter-current swim jets and 2 indoor flume slides.
There is also a newly renovated Gate House situated just before the park entrance for those that wish to stay in a secluded location in the picturesque village of Kirby Misperton. This is our premium accommodation, and expands on our brick built Signature Collection. We are also offering a Platinum Plus range of holiday homes from May 2016 onwards, and have expanded into a new field - Maple Grove - with our range of hire fleet and holiday homes to buy.
Meet the new Rainbow Lorikeets from mid-September, to be housed in a new purpose-built aviary, where guests can walk around them whilst feeding them from a nectar pot. Flamingo Land will also be constructing an elevated platform for those that wish to take part in a new outdoor Giraffe Animal Encounter from September. After hearing all about this endangered, spectacular animal, the VIP guests can feed browse to the Rothschild giraffes from the platform.
We are expecting the arrival of another female black rhino Chanua in September 2016. She will join Samira and Olmoti, the mother and baby already in residence at the new Black Rhino Selous Reserve, with elevated viewing platform. They came from Zurich in September 2015, and were the first rhinos in this new reserve.
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.
