Adventure Wonderland

It’s no wonder that it’s a full day’s fun at Dorset’s number one family theme park, with even more to do and see than ever before! Recipient of 4 awards as voted for by our visitors, there are now over 30 family rides and attractions at Adventure Wonderland, opposite Bournemouth Airport.

New this year is the spectacular Battle Boats water ride with guaranteed fun for all, using motorised boats equipped with a water gun to fire at others in the lake. Plus there’s the hugely popular new Dragon’s Drop Megaslide and New Cuddle Corner Farm with alpacas, pigmy goats, Saddleback pigs, rabbits, ponies and lambs. Family favourites include The Ghostly Galleon, Wild Bill’s Runaway Train, Turbo Teacups, Flying Elephants and lots, lots more! All this is contained within a wonderful parkland setting with the largest natural hedge maze on the South Coast with 1 ½ miles of pathways.

And that’s just outside. There’s also the vast indoor Aztec adventure play centre, Wild Thing with even more activities including the fantastic Montyzoomer’s Ball Firing Thunderdome! Plus, of course, new shows in the weather beating Happydrome Theatre.

There’s also a chance to meet some of the park characters including Alice, the Mad Hatter and The White Rabbit. Again throughout this year there will be further “all inclusive” guest visits from various celebrity star characters, which have proved highly popular with our young visitors.

Adventure Wonderland open daily 23rd March to 8th Sept. Then every weekend up to 20th Oct and half term week 26th Oct to 3rd Nov. Wild Thing open every day excluding Christmas, Boxing and New Years days as a separate attraction but as part of Adventure Wonderland in season.
