Things to do at Flamingo Land review
Flamingo land is a great theme park for those wanting thrill rides, located near Malton in North Yorkshire. They have 8 thrill rides with pretty tall height limits. Some of the family rides also have height restrictions. There are 13 family rides including water rides, mini rollercoasters, dinosaur-themed rides, pirate ship and more. 8 of these 13 rides are open in the winter. They also have 8 rides especially for younger children most of which are also open in the winter (parents can accompany children on three of these 8 rides).
If you are visiting Flamingo Land with children under 1.3 metres you may prefer to visit in the winter. We visited with a child of 1.2m in the summer and there were a lot of rides that he couldn’t go on. We ended up going on everything that we could normally go on for much cheaper in the winter and there were only a few other extra attractions open such as the train and cable car suitable for us. It costs a lot of money outside of the winter.
There are discounted tickets sometimes available which make this a more affordable option for families with younger children.
Other fun things for kids to enjoy at Flamingo Land are the Peter rabbit themed playground, pirate shows, play areas, splash pad (not open in winter). Families will also enjoy the safari monorail, people mover, cable cars and miniature train. There is a really good zoo at Flamingo land with giraffes, rhinos, tigers, lemurs and many other animals. You can also see daily sea lion and parrot shows.
Covid 19 – Please check the website or social media of an attraction before visiting. Many places may be open differently and some remain closed. Reviews do not mention all of these changes or possible price changes. Most places still require you to pre-book online in advance.
