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!

Blackpool Zoo is currently closed!

The government has announced that the outdoor areas of zoos will be allowed to re-open no earlier than Monday 12th April.  Until then we remain closed.

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

We’ll keep you informed through our website and social media channels.

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

Stay safe everyone.
