Keep the kids occupied this Summer holiday with a little help from Peppa Pig World at Paultons Family Theme Park
Tuesday 31, May 2011
If you’re want a guaranteed fun-filled day out this summer look no further than Paultons Family Theme Park in Hampshire, which is now home to Peppa Pig World as well as more than 60 other rides and attractions.
Set in over 140 acres of beautiful landscaped parkland on the edge of the New Forest National Park in Hampshire, Paultons Park is still owned and run by the same family that first opened its gates to the public in 1983.
Exclusive to Paultons Park, Peppa Pig World is a magical kingdom that brings to life one of TV’s most popular children’s characters. Featuring seven magical rides, a host of fun animated attractions, indoor and outdoor play areas and a Peppa-themed toy shop, Peppa Pig World is destined to keep little ones entertained for hours. Peppa Pig World is even home to Muddy Puddles water play area and Daddy Pig’s Big Tummy Café! The only difficulty will be getting them home without a grumble, but Peppa Pig herself will be on hand to help.
Paultons Park offers something for everyone from big thrills like EDGE, a swooping, spinning giant disc that travels along a 90-metre track complete with a ‘camelback’ hill,reaching heights of up to 15 metres, and The Cobra, the park’s largest family rollercoaster, to firm family favourites like the Teacup Ride and the Sky Swinger.
There’s plenty to entertain the little ones too with The Flying Frog mini-coaster, a great first-time rollercoaster experience; Seal Falls, a mini log flume; the beautiful garden-themed Trekking Tractors ride; the Magic Forest, where nursery rhymes come to life at the touch of a button.
Water Kingdom, an 8,500-square foot kids’ splash park featuring more than 20 different ways of getting wet including water jets, giant tipping buckets, fountains and super soakers, is a great attraction that the kids are bound to want to splash about in. And those looking for a bit of nostalgia will love The Sky Swinger, a ride that twirls and tilts as it lifts riders six metres above the ground on an aerial journey.
Paultons Park also has a wonderful collection of exotic birds and animals including meerkats, wallabies and giant tortoises. There are numerous attractions from fun playgrounds to educational displays, a museum and a working Victorian waterwheel to be discovered too.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
