Make wild memories this February half term at Drusillas Zoo Park!

Keep the little ones half term happy with a zooper day out at one of the top attractions in Sussex – Drusillas Zoo Park near Alfriston.

Drusillas family friendly zoo offers little (and big) ones a wonderfully engaging animal experience, where the focus is always on ‘fun finding out’. Take part in free animal spotting activities, or test your strength against your animal friends in the Zoolympics.

Lucky visitors may catch a glimpse of the zoo’s adorable new baby sloth born in November – Baby Athena will be hanging out in the sloth and bat walk-through enclosure, so make sure you pay her a visit (and be prepared to fall in love!). Keepers are also excited to announce a new animal experience available for half term – armadillo close encounters. Visitors can now book a truly unique nose-to-nose encounter with their fabulous pair of yellow armadillos.

The zoo’s animal walkthrough enclosures will be open all week – get up close with the curious lemurs or feed the lovely lorikeets. And don’t forget to waddle along to the penguin pool and watch the Keeper feeding talks which run twice a day.

However, animals are only half the fun – go wild in huge adventure playgrounds, including Go Bananas!, a dedicated and newly refurbished under 5s area, or take cover and grab a coffee during those rain showers in Amazon Adventure indoor soft play. Once little monkeys are done swinging, jumping and climbing they can get lost in the adventure maze and then meet prehistoric giants as they tip-toe through the Jurassic Jungle!

Drusillas also boasts a number of fantastic rides – get your family-friendly thrills with unlimited rides on the Flying Cheetahs, Hippopotobus, and Safari Express Train in the Park’s Go Safari! area, and finish your adventure with a magical ride on The Rainforest Carousel. Don’t worry if you can’t choose your favourite animal to ride… keep coming back and take them all for a spin!

And don’t forget to book a session at the new state-of-the-art sensory attraction SPARK – open all week, including SEND-only sessions every morning. See little eyes marvel in wonder as they explore this highly unique, interactive, sensory space. Dive into coral reef, leap across lily pads and splash among crocodiles. Watch the walls animate with your touch, design your own animals to release into the digital wild, and star in an augmented reality video atop a rhino, ostrich or zebra!

Located just off the A27 in Alfriston, Drusillas Park is open for Spring half term between 12th and 20th February from 10am each day. Visitors who pre-book tickets via their website can enjoy 20% off the gate price, right up until midnight the day before they visit.
