What is there to do?

Lion, tigers and bears....oh my!

York’s Wild Kingdom is not just a zoo filled with 60-70 species of animals for children to watch and learn about, but also a fun amusement park great for the whole family.

The zoo features stunning creatures such as the white Bengal tiger, adorable bear cubs, stripy zebras and a number of species of playful monkeys.  Each area supplies information on the animals, their habitats and nature so kids can learn about the animal as they enjoy the thrill of seeing them face to face.

The nearby Butterfly Kingdom is a 5.500 square foot beautifully lush enclosure which is home to colorful and delicate South and Central American butterflies.  Here kids can learn the short but sweet life cycle of the butterfly, from the chrysalis to adulthood. 

Now you’ve seen the animals - ready to ride the rides!? Of course you are!  The Amusement Park is home to over 22 rides which is great for both smaller and older children.  Go for a spin in the gravitationally challenged Super Spiral, scare yourself in the Haunted House, or get lost in the jungle funhouse.    Challenge yourself to try out every one!  It is worth noting that there are height restrictions on the rides so be sure to check before you queue.  

If that all isn’t enough to keep you entertained for an entire week, there is also an 18 hole mini golf course, batting cages and an arcade to top it all off, just to make sure you really do have an incredibly fun day.

I’m Hungry!

As long as you don’t want to eat what the lions eat (and we hope you don’t!) then both the zoo and amusement park have a number of snack bars located where you can buy treats such as hot dogs, hamburgers, steak & cheese, cotton candy and the delicious discovery of fried dough. Alternatively, there are a number of lovely areas set up to enjoy your own picnic lunch if you want to bring your own food and drinks.
