Disabled Access Day - Saturday 16th March 2019
Over the weekend of the 16th and 17th March, we are joining other attractions and businesses in the resort in supporting Disabled Access Day, 2019.
Admission on either day will be half price for disabled adults, disabled children and their carers (with the usual forms of proof of disability).
We will have a ROMPA Sensory Van on site from 10.00am - 1.00pm.
  • The tickets can either be purchased at the zoo admissions, or online using the code 'MARCH2019'.
  • Wheelchairs are available for free loan from Reception for a £10.00 refundable deposit.
  • Please telephone 01253 405457 to hire a mobility scooter. It will be delivered and collected to suit your needs.
  • We do ask for proof of disability on admission as we offer discounted prices. This could be evidence of PIPS, your blue badge or a letter from your GP. Please don’t be offended by our staff asking – some disabilities are not visible and we try to treat all our visitors the same.
  • Disabled toilet facilities are available throughout the site, and a room for more personal care with hoist (own sling required) is located in Reception in the main entrance building.
  • Unfortunately, we are unable to allow assistance dogs on site due to animal health restrictions, but our office staff are all dog lovers and happy to look after them.
  • Admission for the 16th & 17th March is £5.38 for a disabled adult, £4.63 for a disabled child and £5.38 for a carer.
