School’s Out for Summer!
16th July 2015
At last, summer is officially here! As of this week, kids across the country have a long stretch of holiday in front of them. While we can’t guarantee back-to-back days of sunshine, we can promise a fun-filled family day out at Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm. There’s so much going on here that it needn’t be a one-visit trip either; once your little ones have experienced Noah’s Ark, they’ll want to keep coming back for more! And why not? With outdoor and heated indoor play areas and a host of amazing animals to keep them entertained, it really is an all-weather destination.
It’s also a great way of getting kids active. In this digital age, it’s important that children experience the great outdoors and can go back to school in September with some great memories of action-packed days out with their friends and family. According to a recent study by Dr Pooja Tandon, revealed by TIME magazine, spending time outdoors helps with children’s mental, physical and cognitive development. Health experts recommend that children aged two and above should partake in at least an hour of moderate intensity physical activities every day. However, new research suggests that an average child in the UK plays outside for only 49 minutes per day.
A fifth (20%) of children involved in the study said they were reluctant to get involved in outdoor activities because they were “too boring.” Well, we can say with a great amount of confidence that Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm is anything but boring. If you want to entice your children outside this summer, simply show them the Noah’s Ark website and start planning your visit!
We have a host of indoor and outdoor play areas to suit children of all ages – from our Jungle Den and Welly Splash Pool for the little ones, to drop slides, mazes and zip lines. There are plenty of areas to roll out your picnic blanket when the sun is shining, or we have a fantastic on-site café serving fresh and healthy meals, snacks and drinks. And let’s not forget the big zoo animals. Noah’s Ark is home to plenty of them! From elephants and giraffes to rhinos and tigers, you can get up-close to some of these amazing creatures. Set within 100 acres of land, there is plenty of space for your little ones to run around and burn off some energy.
Two adults and two children can receive a day ticket for just £49. To purchase your great value family ticket, you can buy them online at a discounted rate or at the ticket office in full upon arrival. We look forward to welcoming you to Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm this summer!
