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.

New for 2019!
Visitors can also meet the pint-sized ponies in the new Shetland World, where they’ll have the opportunity to pat and stroke them.

There’s also the vast indoor Aztec adventure play centre, Wild Thing! including the brand new interactive Jungle Zap Zone!

And, for a bit of fun the hugely popular Upside Down House opens as a separate attraction (not part of the main park entry price) this season. The house is fully furnished, arranged over two storeys and is perfect for quirky photo opportunities - great for posting on Instagram and Facebook.   

Plus, new for 2019, children visiting Adventure Wonderland can get in for FREE at the Aviation Museum opposite!

See the website for more information.
