Visitors to Dorset’s multi award-winning family theme park, Adventure Wonderland, can now safely enjoy a new outdoor live show, the Eat Out to Help Out scheme and a great range of outdoor rides and attractions.

Alice, the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts will be on the outdoor Wonderland Arena Stage for new show, "Rock, Roll & Jam" at 11am and 3.30pm every day (weather permitting).  Visitors will be able to take their socially distanced seats on the lawn to enjoy this rock-tastic, fun festival, sing-along show for all the family!

Rides and attractions include family favourites such as Jungle Falls, Battle Boats, Wild Bill's Runaway Train and the Turbo Teacups.  Visitors are also able to see the pint-sized ponies in Shetland World, get lost in the south's largest hedge maze and get adventurous in the outdoor play areas. And, for inquisitive visitors, there's the outdoor Alice Trail where they can find out more about the story of Alice in Wonderland.

Grab and go refreshments are available. And, during August on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday’s visitors to the park will get 50% off food, up to £10 a person, as part of the Eat Out to Help Out scheme.  There's also lots of outdoor space for playing and picnicking.

Adventure Wonderland has been awarded the Visit England 'We're Good to Go' mark as all the recommended safety measures have been implemented to keep the park COVID secure, ensuring the safety of visitors and staff.  This includes staff PPE, intensive cleaning regimes, sanitiser stations all across the park, social distancing demarcation lines at queuing points and one-way systems where necessary.
