They are fed in their pool near Otter Pool Café at 10:30am and 4:30pm. • At 11.30am enjoy the ‘Eagles of Paradise Display’ and see birds of prey like eagles and a vulture fly free near the Fun Farm. • At 2pm experience the Flight of the Rainbows! You can buy some nectar and help feed these wonderful little Lorikeet parrots, in their walk-through Rainbow Aviary in the walled garden. • The Free Flying Bird Show at 3pm includes beautiful Amazon parrots, choughs and other birds, flying free on the stage and across the picnic lawn. • Have a cockatoo fly to your hand! A unique and fun way for the staff and birds to fundraise for Paradise Park’s conservation projects. You have the opportunity to go up on the main stage at the end of the afternoon ‘Free Flying Bird Show’ to give a £1 or £2 donation. Roseate Cockatoos Billy, Rizzo or Rio will be ready to fly to your hand, collect the coin, fly back to the presenter and place it into the collection tin. Great fun and a very popular experience, all for a good cause • Help feed the cute Pygmy goats and Ouessant sheep down on the Fun Farm. Each day there are 150 little bags of ‘Goat and Sheep Food’ which are 65p and available on entry.

    Please note that the daily shows are subject to change or cancellation due to weather (high winds/heavy rain).

    It really is a place to make a lot of memories and having amazing staff makes it so much more enjoyable. I will definitely be recommending my friends and family to have a day trip here, and we will definitely visit again very soon! Thank you so much!!

    A wonderful and worthwhile day out!

    Fantastic indoor and outdoor play!

    The huge indoor JungleBarn play centre is fabulous fun whatever the weather. The smallest visitors can have a good romp in safety in the special toddlers’ area. Older children and adults can enjoy the massive, multi -level soft play area for a good scramble around. Try the Spinning Steps, Spinning Discs, Astra Slide, the Big Blue, Drop and Double Drop slides, Ladders, climb ropes, Squeeze rollers and Roller Poles, X Changer, Fireman’s Pole, Corner Climber, Tube slide, Swing over nets and more!

    Plus, explore the outdoor Paradise Island playground. Children can climb the towers, slide into the 'river' and ride a rocking dolphin.

    On good weather days Zebedee, the Jungle Express Train, will be out for a spin! Board the train near the picnic lawn and set off through the gardens of Glanmor House on a small route of two circuits around the house grounds (not the whole Park). Includes the top section of Parrot Jungle, a trip through a tunnel with Twinkly lights leading to behind the scenes at the back of the house. For train times please check when you arrive. There is a small extra charge

    For refreshments, the Otter Pool Cafe serves locally made cakes and pasties to delicious Ploughman’s lunches and hot dishes. You’re always welcome take your own food and drink and enjoy the picnic areas around the Park.

    If one day is not enough, then great value Return Tickets are available. Visit once at standard entry prices (minus any discount if available), and you can then buy a Return Ticket for just £6 before you leave, which pays for your next visit in the season. And you can then keep buying Return Tickets every time you visit until 31st March 2025.

    Plenty of free parking. Please use Sat Nav TR27 4HY.
