NEW FOR 2013 - Take a magical adventure to visit Father Christmas* and his Elves in a brand-new walkthrough attraction "The Night before Christmas - A Magical Adventure". When you enter the home of Father Christmas, you’ll find yourself in a world of wonder and excitement!
- Journey into the Elves workshop and hear how they sort through all your Christmas letters.
- See the Elves delicious Christmas sweets and treats before you enter the study of Father Christmas and share your Christmas list!
- Don’t forget to collect your free chocolate as you leave!
That's not all - take your photo with our Reindeer or have a walk on the wild side and visit Trail of the Kings. See our Lions, Tigers, Gorilla, Binturong, Fossa and Lynx, then come face to face with the creature beneath the waves including sharks and rays in our SEALIFE Centre. Don’t miss our Sealions making a splash over at Sealion Bay, and be fearless explorers and brave snakes, lizards and spiders in Creepy Caves.
Plus, with our daily animal shows there will be lots to see and do this winter.
Festive Zoo days activities are included with your park ticket or Annual Pass, entry numbers are limited so arrive early to avoid disappointment.

*Father Christmas will be appearing every day until 24th December. Once Christmas is over, the elves will stay behind to begin the big tidy up while Father Christmas takes a well earned break but they need your help to make sure the factory is looking spick and span ready for next Christmas!
