Enjoy a thrilling ride on “The Ultimate” which runs for 1.5 hair-raising miles and lasts almost six minutes. Choose the rear seats if you dare, to benefit from the most intense of theme park ride experiences. Prepare yourself for the excitement of the 2 lift hills of 102ft and 107ft heights and enjoy awesome views of the whole Park. The first part is the smoothest section, followed by a uniquely insane experience as the carriages whoosh through deep dark forest areas back to the Station.

Visit swashbuckling Skeleton Cove and try “The Powder Keg” – one of our more ‘explosive’ rides that give a fast spinning experience. “Black Pearl” is the centre-piece of Skeleton Cove’s pirate-themed area and offers a unique ride experience, is 85ft in length and turns you fully upside down.

Take a ride on our tractors around Eagles Creek Farm and meet our Kunekune Pigs, Pygmy Goats, Shetland Ponies and our cute donkey and then visit our Falconry to see our amazing selection of birds.
