Things to do at Flamingo Land in Winter review – Flamingo Land during winter opening, at weekends, is perfect for families with younger children. The larger thrill rides are shut over winter and instead, only the family rides and rides for children are open. Not all the family rides are open but most of them are and we struggled to do everything during their 6 hours of opening.
The zoo is also open over the winter so you can wander around to see giraffe, rhinos, tigers, monkeys and many other animals. They also still have their sea lion and parrot shows plus a pirate show over by the entrance. The main attraction with winter opening is the price. It is vastly cheaper to visit in the winter than the spring, summer and autumn. Please note that only the zoo is open in the week and the rides are open along with the zoo at weekends.
Also at weekends in the winter you can enjoy a Peter Rabbit storytime show (£5 extra for this show per person), meet and greet with Peter Rabbit. Plus the playgrounds and indoor soft play are open. Rides that are open are Rotataur, Dino roller, Cyclosaur, Twistosaurus, Muddy Duck tractor ride. Plus Helitoys, Wacky races, Litle monsters den of mischief, Flamingo 1. Junior carousel, Aligator coaster and White rhino. Some rides have a height restriction
Eating – In winter at weekends Muddy duck cafe, coach house and Mansion house are open for food. We can recommend the Peter Rabbit afternoon tea.
