Fun for toddlers at Whipsnade Zoo

Perfect for Under 5s

Whipsnade Zoo is made for exploring and adventure. With 600 acres of wide-open space, a brand new play zone and more than 9,500 animals, it’s a great day out for the whole family.


Hullabazoo outdoor play: open all year

Kids will love our 7,800 square metres of themed play area, including bridges, swings, climbing frames, sit-on crocodiles, tunnels, boats, mini safari jeeps and more!
FREE. ZSL membership or zoo ticket required.


Hullabazoo indoor soft play

Watch your little ones climb like a bug and slide like a penguin in our soft play with zones for children from 0-10. Grown-ups can grab a drink and snack from the kiosk, sit and recharge, while the kids burn off some energy.
FREE. Book online the day before you visit. Subject to availability. ZSL membership or zoo ticket required. 


The Ultimate Animal Challenge

Although many of the challenges are aimed at older children (5-13), there are several parts of our Ultimate Animal Challenge (running from 23 July to 4 September) that toddlers can join in on. Your tots can forage like a meerkat in our sandpits, or see if they can sneak up on a grazing deer like a tiger would! It's a day out for the whole family to enjoy. 
FREE and included with zoo entry. ZSL membership or zoo ticket required.

And remember, Under 3s enter the Zoo for free!
