Wet The Western Tractor Trailer Ride

WANTED 

We are looking for cowboys and cowgirls to join us this half term (Monday – Wednesday) for the ultimate WILD WEST SOAK OFF! Children will be encouraged to draw their water pistols (which we will provide) and completely soak the staff. The wetter the better. So, jump on the trailer ride and get ready for the greatest soak off in the west! YEEEEHAAAAA!

If you’ve visited during Easter with our Bandit Bunny, or during Halloween for Soak-A-Spook, you’re children are going to LOVE the Wild West Soak Off!

  • Tractor rides are an additional charge of £2.50 per person (payable by card or cash on the day) 
  • Please refer to the timetable when handed to you upon arrival 

Foam Party

Meet us on the picnic table lawn near the pig racing track for the return of our famous Foam Party. Children will be able to slip, slide, and dance the afternoon away (aka completely exhaust themselves before heading home for the day). There will be music, foam, and lots of crazy dance moves for you and your little ones to get involved with.

  • We highly advise you bring towels with you to help dry off before heading home for the day 
  • This is scheduled towards the end of the day so your little ones won’t spend the day completely soaked! 

THIS ACTIVITY IS INCLUDED WITHIN THE ADMISSION PRICE – NO ADDITIONAL COST!

Sheep Shearing

Who shears sheep?

Salisbury based sheep shearer Lyddia Green does!

Lyddia has sheared sheep for the past 3 years and farmed for the past 4 years.

Life can lead you down many paths before you discover what ‘ewe’ truly enjoy. Lyddia had a career in costume design, then preferred the outdoor life and worked as a dog walker. Now, she actively contributes to the local sheep shearing community. We invite you to watch the essential ‘haircuts’ that the sheep require every summer. Did you know that sheep fleece keeps growing constantly, just like our hair or a rabbit’s teeth?

THIS ACTIVITY IS INCLUDED IN THE ADMISSION PRICE – NO ADDITIONAL COST!
