Things to do at Paultons Park

Paultons Park is home to a wide range of exhilarating rides and themed worlds, most famously, Peppa Pig World. With nine rides and a multitude of different activities to take part in, there is plenty to take in even just at Peppa Pig World. Take the little ones to visit their favourite sites from the show such as Granddad Dogs Garage and even take a walk around Peppa Pigs House! 

Beyond Peppa Pig World, there are also lots of other themed worlds including a Wild Lands Zoo. This is where all types of wildlife native to the Savannah can be seen and where visitors learn more about the extensive nature of that part of Africa. There is also Tornado Springs, where visitors can take a trip to America right in the middle of the New Forest. From thrilling rides to a classic American style diner, Tornado Springs is perfect for big kids and little kids alike. 

The fun doesn’t stop there though, with Lost Kingdom and Critter Creek also giving any little adventurer plenty of opportunities to explore. The Lost Kingdom gives budding archaeologists the chance to dig for fossils, whilst the Critter Creek lets kids explore a real-life bug emporium with fascinating and unusual insects, fish and lizards. With famous rides such as the Cat-O-Pillar Coaster in Critter Creek and the Velociraptor ride in the Lost Kingdom world, there’s no chance of the excitement running out in any of these themed worlds.
