Paultons Park Official Short Break offers resume as hotels in Hampshire reopen
Paultons Park – the UK’s number one family theme park and the home of Peppa Pig World – continues to prove a popular destination of choice for families across the UK as domestic holidays resume once again.
The Hampshire-based attraction is now seeing an uplift in official short break bookings which, from £52 per person, allow families to visit the park for a second consecutive day free of charge when booking accommodation via the Paultons Breaks website.
James Mancey, Operations Director at Paultons Park, said: “The Paultons Breaks offer is ideal for families visiting the New Forest National Park as it allows them to spread their visit to Paultons Park over two days. That means parents can keep everyone happy by spending plenty of time in every section of the park, from Peppa Pig World for the little ones to Tornado Springs for slightly older thrill seekers.
“The New Forest presents a great destination for those looking to holiday in the UK. With a National Park, beaches, plenty of attractions, shopping centres and some brilliant hospitality venues, Hampshire really has it all and I am anticipating a busy summer for ourselves and our industry partners.”
For just £52 per person, families across the UK can kickstart their summer by booking a midweek stay at Days Inn Winchester. With Paultons Park’s Official Short Breaks, a family of four can enjoy a bed and breakfast stay, and a two-day trip to Paultons Park for just £206.
Alternatively, a family of three could check into the popular Holiday Inn in Eastleigh on 20th April between two action packed days at Paultons Park for only £248.
Paultons Park reopened on April 12th with its brand-new attraction, Tornado Springs, opening for the very first time. The new area unveiled eight new rides and experiences, expanding Paultons Park’s already extensive family offering. Covering four acres, Tornado Springs is the biggest new attraction opened at any UK theme park this year and includes the UK’s first free-spinning rollercoaster of its type.
Tornado Springs is one of five themed worlds at Paultons Park and complements other areas in the park, including dinosaur themed land Lost Kingdom, Critter Creek and Wild Lands, that each appeal to a variety of age groups.
Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park is the world’s first and largest Peppa Pig World and homes nine fun rides including Peppa’s Big Balloon Ride and The Queen’s Flying Coach Ride. Little guests have the opportunity to see Peppa Pig and little brother George in person, as well as other favourite characters Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig, Zoe Zebra and Suzy Sheep.
In addition, a brand-new show is arriving at Paultons Park this summer. A Magical Pirate Adventure takes place on selected dates at the Show Stage and invites visitors aboard the good ship Paultons for pirate shenanigans and swashbuckling tales. Join Captain Bruce and the Pirate Pack as they embark on a journey across the Seven Seas and have some hilarious adventures along the way. A Magical Pirate Adventure is a mystical journey of fantasy not to be missed, full of magic moments, catchy songs and amazing effects and pyrotechnics that will amaze and delight.
Paultons Park is currently operating under limited capacities and therefore is seeing several popular dates sell out in advance.
James said: “With lots of pent-up demand and as capacity remains reduced, we are seeing tickets sell out often a couple of weeks in advance. We are continuing to urge families to book their visit well in advance to avoid disappointment.”
Paultons Park, the UK exclusive home of Peppa Pig World, was named by Tripadvisor as the 10th best-rated amusement park in the world and the fourth best in Europe – beating all other UK attractions – in the 2020 Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards. The family theme park also retained its title for an unbeaten fifth year in a row as the UK’s best-rated amusement park.
Paultons Park operates with a series of robust measures to manage the guest experience and keep guests and staff safe. Daily guest numbers will be limited, with all visits pre-booked online.
Visitors can find out more information and book a short break package on the Paultons Breaks website: https://www.paultonsbreaks.com/. ‘A Magical Pirate Adventure’ takes place on selected dates from 21st May to 19th September 2021 and specific dates can be seen on the Paultons Park website.
