Since opening in 2009, the park has grown to attract more than 750,000 visitors per year who are thrilled to come face to face with some of the world's most beautiful and endangered species such as Amur Leopards and Tigers as well as the country's only Polar Bears.

The park also offers unrivalled animal education courses and special entertainment events through the year.

“Our tenth birthday is a really important landmark and we are grateful for the support we have received from the public over that time so we are delighted to offer discounted £10 tickets to mark our 10th birthday,” said CEO John Minion. 

“We have grown every year and still get a thrill from the smiles we see on visitors’ faces as they get close to some incredible animals. 

This is the start of our tenth anniversary year and we look forward to sharing it with our visitors.”

The park makes a staggering £12m contribution to the local economy every year and employs over 200 people.

This will increase significantly as the park has plans for a major expansion over the coming years on 150 acres land adjacent to the site.
