About

Dorset’s multi award-winning family theme park, Adventure Wonderland, with its great range of rides and attractions is the perfect spot for an unforgettable day out.

Family favourites include Jungle Falls log flume, Wild Bill's Runaway Train, The Ghostly Galleon and the Dance with the Stars marquee.

The park, opposite Bournemouth Airport, takes its inspiration from Lewis Carol’s timeless classic, Alice in Wonderland and children love getting to know the resident characters Alice, Mad Hatter, Queen of Hearts, Mr Rabbit and the cheeky Cheshire Cat.

Throughout the year the park welcomes a number of fabulous visiting characters for the day. The park also welcomes characters from local holiday parks, like Shorefield, and our friends at Wave and Heart drop-in too.

The park is set within wonderful parkland with the largest natural hedge maze on the South Coast with 1 ½ miles of pathways – perfect for an adventure. There is also the ever-popular Cuddle Corner petting area with its host of furry friends.

And that’s just outside. There’s also the vast indoor Aztec adventure play centre, Wild Thing! with even more activities including the fantastic Montyzoomer’s Ball Firing Thunderdome!

Plus, new live shows in the weather beating Happydrome Theatre.

Easter, Halloween, Christmas and all the school holidays are always extra special times at Adventure Wonderland, so follow the park on Facebook or checkout the website (link top right) to keep bang up-to-date with the latest events.

Titch the T-Rex roars into Adventure Wonderland

Titch the T-Rex will be the star attraction at Adventure Wonderland, Dorset's multi award-winning theme park, during February half term.

Titch will be taking up 'roar'sidence at the park which is opposite Bournemouth airport, along with Raptors Ralph and Remy and Triceratops Gretel and Tilly, from Tuesday 19th – Thursday 21st February.

Titch will be on his best behaviour as he wanders around the park giving visitors plenty of opportunity to be extra brave and have their photo taken with him.

When he is not on the prowl looking for visitors to scare he will be contained behind a Jurassic Park style fence so the more cautious can get a closer look.

Children under seven will also be able to sit on Gretel who is an animatronic Triceratops or pose with a dinosaur egg or leg bone.  

Other attractions at the park over half-term include the maze and play area, Caterpillar ride, Charlie Cool's Cars, the Jabberwocky double-helix slide and Cuddles Corner.  Inside visitors can enjoy the weather-beating giant indoor Aztec soft play centre, Wild Thing!  Dance with the Stars and story time.
