North Yorkshire is known around the world for its incredible natural beauty. Almost half of the enormous county is given over to National Parks, spanning undulating hills and picturesque moors. It's not just the natural world that lures in vast numbers of holidaymakers to North Yorkshire, however. Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo is just one of the county's many exciting tourist attractions. Located in the Ryedale district, the theme park is close to some of the best hotels in North Yorkshire.
Meet Your Favourite Animals
There's plenty to see and do at the Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo, but its animals are undoubtedly the main attractions. It's not just flamingos on show, either. Visitors to the zoo can expect to find lions, zebras, camels and hippos. Not all in the same enclosure, of course!
Strap into White Knuckle Rides
'Wild animals, wilder rides', runs the theme park's slogan. With more than 50 rides spread over the 375 acre site, there's something for all the family. While brave teens can strap into the nine white knuckle rollercoasters, there are also a handful of fun family rides, such as a pair of water slides, which are great in the summer months.
A Family Day Out
The Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo is a complete attraction, packed with facilities to enjoy throughout the day. In addition to the zoo and the rides, visitors can enjoy a whole host of bars and cafes around the site. There are also regular events held at the theme park, ranging from open-air concerts to private parties.
Hotels near the Theme Park
The Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo is situated in the small village of Kirby Misperton. This rural part of North Yorkshire is blessed with a diverse selection of hotels, B&Bs and guesthouses, offering something to suit every budget and taste.
Snoozebox Flamingo Land couldn't be more conveniently located. All 80 rooms include a TV and WiFi, providing ample entertainment. If you're keen to stay away from the park itself, there are plenty of welcoming inns and guesthouses in the nearby town of Malton.
