Giant Snakes Slither into Hatton

Giant snakes will slither into Hatton Adventure World when the popular family attraction hosts its February Frolics activities during the half term from 15 – 23 February. For one week only visitors can get up close and personal with a mixture of Boa Constrictors, Reticulated Pythons, Burmese Pythons and a Tegu. They range in size from 5 feet to 16 feet in length! The handling sessions will take place three times a day at 10:30am, 1pm and 3pm plus visitors can enjoy an interactive talk from snake experts.

There is also a Wildlife Workshop where visitors can learn how to make bird feeders as well as making toys for the animals in Scales & Tails and learn how Hatton looks after all their weird and wonderful creatures.

Hatton Adventure World covers some 100 acres and is home to over 450 creatures, great and small. The entry all-inclusive price takes away the worry of finding any hidden extras as all activities are included. In addition to the snakes, there will also be jumping, swinging and slip-sliding fun in Snorty’s Superslide Mania, the opportunity to feed the farm animals, animal crafts, funfair rides, seeing the Masters of the Skies in the spectacular falconry displays, farmyard bingo and the chance to watch thrilling Puppet and Magic Shows in the family theatre which each run twice a day.

For older children there’s a packed programme of activities including three outdoor Laser Combat challenges; Death Match, Domination and Capture the Flag! Visitors can also see other exotic animals in Scales and Tails and watch goats in the outdoor Farmyard.

Carron Smith, Marketing Manager at Hatton Adventure World said “Hatton has a fantastic range of activities on offer this half term especially with the return of our popular Giant Snakes. Visitors can discover all about these amazing creatures and if they’re brave enough they can even handle them! Many of our activities are inside so a day at Hatton is a sure way to keep children entertained whatever the weather throws at us!”
