Easter Weekend: 29th March - 1st April 

29th March – 1st April 

The Easter Bunny has hidden five golden eggs around the park, they need to be found daily before it gets dark. Take one back to our staff at the entrance gate but be there before 4pm otherwise you’ll be late. Terms and conditions apply*

One super special egg can also be found, be sure to look everywhere, not just on the ground. A family season ticket pass will be your prize, but this egg won’t be obvious, it’s hidden in disguise. Terms and conditions apply*

*Five golden eggs and one rainbow egg will be available daily from 29th March – 1st April. Bringing a golden egg to Admissions allows you to claim one chocolate easter egg. Bringing a rainbow egg to Admissions allows you to claim one family option two season ticket. If you are a current season ticket holder, the special egg does not entitle you to a refund on your current pass but will be carried over to 2025. Limited to one egg per day ticket order.
