We are frequent visitors to Paultons Park as it is just a half and hour drive from home and I often get asked if it is worth visiting.
Home to Peppa Pig World, if you have a pig loving toddler then the answer is a resounding ‘YES!” but now there is even more to do for families with older children with the launch of the Lost Kingdom.
Paultons Park is set just off the M27 in Romsey, Hampshire and is a stunning park. Not only does it have rides to keep the kids entertained but it also set in some picturesque grounds with themed gardens to wander through and animals and birds to see.
Peppa Pig World is the go to destination for toddles with 7 themed rides, the Muddy Puddles splash park and George’s Spaceship playzone. It is really like being in an episode of Peppa Pig where you can visit Peppa’s house and playschool as well as ride in Daddy Pig’s car and Grandpa’s mini-a-ture locomotive.
Characters from the show wander around the park daily for the chance for a meet and greet with their fans, although for some little ones, seeing a giant Daddy Pig trying to give them a high-five is a little scary!
For those children that have moved on from Peppa Pig, the Lost Kingdom is home to a whole host of Dinosaur attractions including two brand new world class rollercoasters, life-like animatronic Dinosaurs, Jurassic themed family rides, a prehistoric Dinosaur adventure play park and an amazing opportunity to come face to face with their ‘living’ walking T-Rex.
Paultons Park have really excelled themselves with the Lost Kingdom. Gone is the old dinosaur walk, with lifelike animatronic dinosaurs complete with sound effects in its place and some new rides alongside some old favourites which have been refurbished to give them a new lease of life.
All the rides are family friendly, but they do offer a parent swap if you have a baby in tow if you fancy trying the new rollercoasters.
The remainder of Paultons Park also has a wide variety of children’s rides, family rides and thrill rides to enjoy including roller coasters, water rides, and a 4D Cinema, alongside a good choice of restaurants and picnic areas to choose from.
I would also recommend you take some swimwear or a change of clothes on hot days as they have not one, but two splash parks to enjoy and a log flume that gets you soaked!
For those travelling from further afield, Paultons Park has teamed up with local family-friendly hotels to offer a variety of short break deals which include a free ticket for a second day in the park.
Prices start from £159 for a family of four, including entry tickets for both days to the park and you can choose between a range of hand-picked three or four star hotels near the attraction.
