Things to do at Flamingo Land review
If you are visiting Flamingo Land with children under 1.3 metres you may prefer to visit in the winter. We visited with a child of 1.2m in the summer and there were a lot of rides that he couldn’t go on. We ended up going on everything that we could normally go on for much cheaper in the winter and there were only a few other extra attractions open such as the train and cable car suitable for us. It costs a lot of money outside of the winter.
There are discounted tickets sometimes available which make this a more affordable option for families with younger children.
Flamingo land is a great theme park for those wanting thrill rides. They have 8 thrill rides with pretty tall height limits. Some of the family rides also have height restrictions. There are 13 family rides including water rides, mini rollercoasters, dinosaur-themed rides, pirate ship and more. 8 of these 13 rides are open in the winter. They also have 8 rides especially for younger children most of which are also open in the winter (parents can accompany children on three of these 8 rides).
Other fun things for kids to enjoy at Flamingo Land are the Peter rabbit themed playground, pirate shows, play areas, splash pad (not open in winter). Families will also enjoy the safari monorail, people mover, cable cars and miniature train. There is a really good zoo at Flamingo land with giraffes, rhinos, tigers, lemurs and many other animals. You can also see daily sea lion and parrot shows.
Eating – There are plenty of fast food options on-site plus cafes where the food is brought to your table. We can recommend the Peter Rabbit afternoon tea.
Facilities in brief – 8 thrill rides, 13 family rides, 8 rides for children. Plus play areas, splash pad, daily shows, zoo and more. There are toilets on-site, shops and a good choice of places to eat. Picnics are allowed outside.
