Change the way you play

Unfortunately, all indoor and outdoor play areas are closed. But we know your little ones might still have an abundance of energy, so we’ve put together some new, imagination-driven play trails around the zoo. You'll be able to download them soon or pick up a copy from Visitor Services.

Activities Train

Train

The miniature train track runs alongside enclosures where wallabies, wolves, zebras, ostriches and Red River hogs can be seen, as well as a couple of dinosaurs! You can hop on at South Station, just outside the Children’s Farm, and enjoy a leisurely, scenic ride back to the Darwin Centre.  Our train sometimes may not be running due to the weather or engine issues. 

 

Orangutan Play Area at Blackpool Zoo

Play Areas

We know that kids love to play! That’s why we have several play areas around the zoo. The biggest and best outdoor area is Orang-U-Tangle, just by the BBQ kiosk at Orangutan Outlook. Children can climb and swing, mimicking the apes nearby.

Other, smaller play areas, are located inside and outside the Children’s Farm.

KEEP IN TOUCH

Blackpool Zoo is closed!

In light of the most recent national lockdown announcement from the government, sadly we will be temporarily closing Blackpool Zoo again from 5th January 2021.

As always please be assured that our dedicated keeper team will continue to provide the best care for our animals during the closure.

If you’ve booked tickets for any day during this closure, you can exchange them for another date. Please send your booking details to tickets@blackpoolzoo.org.uk.

We’ll keep you informed through our website and social media channels. We apologise for any disappointment and thank you for your patience.

We really look forward to welcoming you back to Blackpool Zoo when we are allowed to re-open.

Stay safe everyone.
