Spring Bank Holiday Fun at Yorkshire Wildlife Park
The fun goings on this May Bank Holiday coincide with May half-term and the annual British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ (BIAZA)’s Love Your Zoo week which calls for communities to visit and support their local zoos and wildlife parks and the role they play in conservation, welfare and the environment.
Amongst many other experiences, visitors to the park this week will learn about the amazing rescue of the Brown Bears from Japan, see the Amur tigers – the largest of all the big cats in the world, and walk amongst the animals in the South America Viva reserve.
Comic Book Superheros event.
A special new event takes place during Spring Bank Holiday weekend – a marvellous Comic Book Superheroes event from Friday May 31st until Sunday June 2nd.
The incredible Superheroes weekend will include an immersive exhibition of life-sized statues of iconic characters including Spider-Man, Iron Man and Hulk, and original comics, in partnership with The World of Superheroes.
The event, taking over the park in Branton, near Doncaster, will also include a spectacular ‘Hollywood Movies Stunt Show’ every day.
Visitors can enjoy an amazing Fan-Zone, which showcases comic book models along with face-painting, superhero crafts and a themed trail around the park. You can even grab a selfie with a 1989 Batmobile!
