Hullabazoo Indoor Play

Hullabazoo is a fun and lively indoor play area in the heart of ZSL Whipsnade Zoo. We're almost ready to welcome you back! Please keep checking back for an announcement when we reopen.

Hullabazoo is a busy and lively indoor play area in the heart of ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.

Each element of Hullabazoo is designed around different habitats enabling your children to have fun and mimic their favourite animals. You’ll be able to watch your little ones crawl through the garden, climb like an insect or journey through the Antarctic to become a penguin sliding down the ice.

Plus we haven’t forgotten you. We understand as parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles that you too have needs, so we will have comfortable seating and a selection of quality food and drinks available within the vicinity.

Hullabazoo indoor play is located at the Children’s Farm (in the heart of the Zoo) and is suitable for children up to 10 years of age. 

Booking a play time

Hullabazoo is hugely popular with our visitors, and for the safety and capacity reasons we can only accommodate a limited number of children at any one time. For this reason we highly recommend booking a session inside Hullabazoo Indoor Play on the morning of your visit to avoid disappointment.  

Please note:

  • Sessions are booked on a first come, first served basis. They book up quickly so please book your session early in your visit as there are days when all sessions have become full by lunchtime.
