Save over 40% this half term
Paultons Park – the UK’s number one family theme park as awarded by Tripadvisor – has released its top February deals to offer guests a hassle-free, affordable stay in the New Forest as part of its Official Short Break offer.
At half term, for just £239 families of four can get a one-night stay with breakfast at the Holiday Inn Express Portsmouth North in a family room and two days at Paultons Park, a saving of over 40%.
Those looking to visit with pre-school aged children after the half term rush can benefit from shoulder period prices starting at £160 for a family of four*, including accomodation and two park days.
James Mancey, Operations Director at Paultons Park, said: “Paultons Short Breaks offer families access to the park over two days and accomodation at a very reasonable price. With our new world of attractions, Tornado Springs, which opened in 2021, the entire family can maximise their time in all five of our themed areas and take each of our 80 rides and attractions for a whirl.
“Although February half term is an important period for us, the weeks that follow are often popular with young families visiting during quieter hours and grandparents making memories with their nursery-aged grandchildren during a weekday out. The Paultons Estate features exquisite gardens rich in history, offering not only a quiet space for afternoon naps, but also an area of interest for those less keen to take on the coasters.”
Original features in the Paultons Park gardens are laid out by English landscape artist Capability Brown, known as ‘England’s greatest gardener’. Several of Brown’s iconic and recognisable design elements can still be seen today.
In 2021, Paultons Park’s brand-new attraction, Tornado Springs, opened 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 was the biggest new attraction opened at any UK theme park last year and includes the UK’s first free-spinning rollercoaster of its type.
Other themed lands at Paultons Park include the Jurassic-period dinosaur attraction, Lost Kingdom; the educational world of Little Africa, featuring a host of real animals from the sub-Sahara region to observe and learn from; the creepy-crawly fun of Critter Creek, and exotic bird exhibits.
Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park is the world’s first and largest Peppa Pig World and home to nine fun rides including Peppa’s Big Balloon Ride and The Queen’s Flying Coach Ride. Little guests can see Peppa Pig and little brother George in person, as well as other favourite characters Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig, Zoe Zebra and Suzy Sheep.
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.
