Voted Dorset’s Top Family Attraction 2018 - Primary Times Star Reader Awards

The Park

Adventure Wonderland, opposite Bournemouth Airport, is Dorset’s number one family theme park and when you get here you’ll see why! It’s just packed full of so much fun and excitement for all our young visitors that you’ll want to stay all day.

Three Great Family Themes!

Adventure Wonderland is an all inclusive experience which combines the timeless fun and games of the Alice in Wonderland story with thrilling outdoor adventure rides in the main park and the Wild Thing! indoor play centre. There are over 30 fantastic rides and attractions throughout the park to excite and entertain from speedy rides like Turbo Teacups and Wild Bill’s Runaway Train through to more gentle rides like Curvy Caterpillars and Flying Elephants and everything in between. Not forgetting the ever popular Animals Cuddle Corner introducing children to a range of furry creatures! And the Battle Boats! too…. You will get soaked! Added for the 2015 season we have the Jabberwocky! double dragon Helta-Skelta and the Water Wind Up! a 4 player water war!

Indoors the Wild Thing! Aztec play centre is packed with imaginative activities such as Quake Tube, Spider Maze and Montyzoomers Thunderdrome amongst many others. It’s also home to the Café of Muchooeatyou, themed party rooms and a mezzanine TV lounge.

Get lost in our Maze

Add to this the largest natural hedge maze in the South, the hilarious main season shows in the 200 seater Happydrome Theatre (storytelling at other times), themed selection of shopping outlets and The Mad Hatter’s Restaurant and Wild Thing Cafe, you can see why this unique park is such a popular attraction with all the young families who come to visit.

Throughout the year

The whole park is open during the main season (March to September) and then during the Halloween Half Term, the play centre, our maze and theatre are transformed into a world of spooks and skellys with a whole range of fangtastic events and entertainment. Again during the Christmas season we go Christmas crazy with a wonderful Pantomime in the theatre and we welcome Father Christmas and Rudolph who take over their cosy log cabin to distribute Christmas joy and presents to their young visitors.
