We can't wait for your little explorers to enjoy our new outdoor play adventure. 

It’s time to let their imaginations run wild and discover over 7,800 square metres of themed play area, including bridges, swings, climbing frames, sit-on crocodiles, tunnels, boats, mini safari jeeps and so much more. View our Hullabazoo image gallery!

The playground is included with Zoo entry.

From Saturday 8 May, pre-booking for the playground will no longer be neccessary but we will be limiting the number of children in the play area at a time, operating a one-in, one-out system during peak times so we can keep everyone safe.

Do I have to book the playground?

No, pre-booking is no longer required. However, we are limiting the number of children in the playground to 100 at a time. This number does not include the supervising adults (all children need at least one supervising adult with them to enter the playground). We will be operating a one-in, one-out system during peak times so we can keep everyone safe. 

Do I have to pay for the playground? 

No, admission to the outdoor play is included in your ticket / membership. 

What entrance to the playground should I be using?

Entrance and exit to Hullabazoo Adventure play will continue to be by the Station Store and will be overseen by a volunteer. Please ask a member of staff on site if you are unsure where this is and they'll be happy to direct you. 

Do Gold members, Patrons and Fellows get exclusive access?

Now that onsite booking is no longer in place, unfortunately we aren't able to offer exclusive access, but hope you were able to explore the play area during your preview week before it opened to the public.

What kind of play is to be expected/is there play equipment for children with additional needs?

We have a huge array of sensory and physical play to delight children, including - for the first time - both water and sand play. We also have a first in the UK, a ZSL Jeep that you can climb up to. There are swings, slides, a zip wire, sound, balance, climb and chill out areas.

We have designed this equipment so that children of all abilities will be able to access the play. For families with additional physical needs we have installed the following accessible play equipment: slide, nest swing, music, sand, water and roundabout. There are also accessible picnic benches.

All of the play equipment is accessed via wet pour and there are no steps to access the play area. There are also sensory elements throughout the play equipment including wooden animals. Chill out areas and quiet spots have also been incorporated into the play design. 

What age group is the playground for? 

This new playground is designed for children from 0-13 years of age. We have worked with an amazing play company to design a challenging play area – if your child is unable to climb onto a piece of the equipment themselves, then it is a bit too old for them. There are lots of different areas to explore, and lots for all ages.
