Flambards

Enjoy a day out for the whole family! Flambards is the perfect family day out in Cornwall with a large selection of rides and indoor attractions and exhibitions to suit everyone. 

The Big Ride Zone & Ferdi’s Funland!

From the thrill seekers to those who prefer a gentler pace, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at Flambards.  Experience the fun from the high clutches of The Shuttle space craft to a dizzying spin on the Hornet Rollercoaster.  Be sure to check out the amazing view at the top of the drop, twisting ride - SkyRaker before plummeting back down to earth and prepare to get wet on the Canyon River log flume!  There’s undercover soft play for little ones, a hands on science zone with laser maze, disorientation tunnel and more to fascinate and plenty of cool stuff that kids will love in Ferdi’s Funland.

Walk through history in Flambards’ award winning undercover exhibitions

Flambards Victorian Village creates the atmosphere of bustling streets and alleyways.  Over 50 different shops and domestic scenes are authentically recreated with thousands of genuine artefacts and ‘populated’ by very realistic life-sized models of people and animals going about their daily business.  Step back in time and see history come alive! 

Discover the world of William White, a pharmacist who lived and worked in Somerset.  When he died in 1909, the shop was boarded up by his son who wasn’t qualified to dispense drugs, the shop remained untouched for more than 80 years.  The walls are lined with medicine bottles, apothecary jars, quartz carboys, demijohns, pill dispensers and mortars and pestles.  This whole shop was carefully installed to Flambards as it was – lock, stock and cobweb!

Britain in the Blitz exhibition is a life-size re-creation interpreting war-time.  Hear the air raid sirens and literally feel the floor shake as another bomb hits the target.  A visit will illustrate what life was like on the Home Front.  Peep in to a wartime kitchen, a classroom and an evocative railway platform scene showing children evacuating.
