You might know Melton Mowbray as the birthplace of the delicious pork pies, but did you also know there’s a family theme park just outside of town?
Twinlakes is set in 100 acres of Leicestershire countryside and has over 50 rides and attractions for you to enjoy. The park was built with children in mind, so don’t expect thrill seeking rides like the ones you find at Alton Towers or Drayton Manor. Most of the rides are catered towards younger children, so your little ones are in for a treat!
So what can you get up to at Twinlakes? Here’s our roundup of their best attractions:
Phoenix Bird of Prey Centre
Twinlakes have a bird of prey centre with falcons, owls and eagles from all over the world. You can get up close to these magnificent creatures, watch them in flight, and if you’re feeling brave you can even hold one yourself! The highly trained falconers put on displays every day at 1pm and 3pm.
In the hot summer months you can cool down in Twinlake’s wet and wild waterpark! The perfect way to entertain the kids during the holidays, you can bring them along to the Au Guang Dragon Zone which is included in the price of theme park admission. There’s half an acre of watery fun to be had, including that classic theme park favourite, the log flume.
Excalibur Adventure Zone
The Excalibur Adventure Zone has lots of fun rides for children including a chair swing, teacups, horse ride and soft play, and a dragon themed ride. As you’ve probably guessed, it’s all got a medieval, knights and dragons vibe which kids will love.
Creepy Critters Zone
Zoos aren’t just about fluffy cute animals, Twinlakes love the creepy critters too! If you fancy yourself as the next David Attenborough this is the attraction for you – there’s tarantulas, lizards, snakes and scorpions to be seen. Find out how Royal Pythons eats meals much bigger than themselves and how stick insects use clever camouflage to stay out of sight.
Superhero Half Term
Join the superheroes at Twinlakes this half term and you can get 2 for 1 tickets to their sister park in Mansfield. All you have to do is dressed as a superhero when you visit Twinlakes – this could be a whole costume or just a t shirt.There will also be lots of fun half term activities and their superhero mascots Super Pooch, Super Mouse and the action man and lady will be in the park ready to meet you and take photos.
