Located near Stanley Park in the seaside resort of Blackpool, the zoo opened in 1972 and is owned by Parques Reunidos after changing ownership twice since it was founded. Home to around one and a half thousand animals from all over the world, the zoo spans 32 acres, some of which includes the ‘Dinosaur Safari’, a walk-through exhibition trail which features thirty-two life-size dinosaurs.
Visitors to the zoo can enjoy meeting South American animals and birds including squirrel monkeys in ‘Amazonia’, whilst since 2008, you can see giraffes at the zoo again after their 14-year long absence. In summer 2009, penguins were also added to the long list of animals at the zoo. Other exhibitions that you can visit with your Blackpool Zoo voucher include the Orangutan Outlook, the Gorilla Mountain, Lemur Wood, Elephant and Reptile House, Wolf Ridge, Wallaby Walkabout, the Children’s Farm, and much more.
A favourite activity at the zoo is the miniature railway, which transports visitors around to each different exhibit. When Blackpool Zoo was opened in 1972, the miniature railway was installed and has been in continuous operation ever since, running on zoo opening days.
Whether you want to see giraffes, tigers, lions, various species of monkey, sea lions, meerkats, red pandas, barn owls, pelicans, tortoises, gorillas, elephants, or penguins, Blackpool Zoo is a great day out for animal lovers.
