Fantastic new 'Orang-u-Tangle' play area now Open!

You are here


Located next to the brand new Orangutan Outlook, this unique play area has just opened.

Our fantastic new 'Orang-u-tangle' play area is now open.  This unique play space has been designed to allow children to express their instincts, have fun and learn at the same time.  Children can mimic the actions of the incredible Orangutans on the various sections of the play frames and it also helps them to understand and develop their social skills and physical abilities through their play.  Children are natural explorers and enthusiastic about play and this facility will allow their imaginations to run riot!

The health of our zoo family, which includes our visitors, staff and animals, is our top priority. In light of the most recent advice from Public Health England and the government, we have closed Blackpool Zoo at until further notice.

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 any other date in 2020 or we can provide a refund. Please send your booking details to

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 re-open.

Stay safe everyone.
