New: The Rainforest Carousel at Drusillas Park

April 22, 2019

Drusillas is already regarded as one of the best days out for families in East Sussex, so the recent arrival of another exciting ride comes with great excitement for regular visitors to the park. We’re huge fans of Drusillas and have really enjoyed watching the park develop in recent years with the arrival of the Hello Kitty Secret Garden and Go Safari!

The start of the Easter holidays saw Drusillas open their newest addition to their collection of rides: The Rainforest Carousel! Guests can choose their favourite rainforest animal to ride on with exotic creatures such as a sloth, river dolphin, poison dart frog and giant anteater all for the taking. There’s even a wheelchair friendly river turtle making the ride fully accessible for all visitors to the park.

Of course there’s so much more to do at Drusillas. We were thrilled to meet some other new additions to the zoo..Oli and Diego the giant anteaters! This gorgeous pair had us in stitches as they scaled every inch of their enclosure for crawlies to munch on.

We made sure we stopped off at one of our favourite parts of the zoo – Lory Landing. We love buying a small pot of nectar each for the lorikeets to feast on. They’re so friendly!

Another favourite are the fennec foxes with their huge ears and tiny faces. We really enjoy all the interactive features around the park..I find these really help the children remember the names and habitats of the more unusual animals.

And finally, no visit to Drusillas is complete without a trip to Hello Kitty’s Secret Garden. This is the perfect place to introduce little ones to the concept of a theme park. The queues are always fairly short and the rides tame..but fun!
