We all had a fantastic day out at Flamingoland last week for Mini’s birthday. I used my Tesco vouchers, but was really disappointed to discover that this arrangement ends in July, which would mean that it would be £90.00 to get in to.
The beauty of Flamingoland for us, is the variety, there are some wonderful animals. We had a great time watching the sealion show and I could watch the mearcats all day. Look at the camels in the photo, I had no idea that they moulted their coats.
As we took the boys out of school for the day (we also took Maxi’s best friend), it was pretty quiet, apart from lots of school trips. This meant the boys got to go on lots of rides and didn’t have to queue. Mini has sprouted and could go on everything that Maxi could, which made for happy families.
There is also a fantastic splash area, so we took the boys UV suits and they had a really good cool down for an hour and half in it. It was really upsetting to see the number of children who are not allowed to get wet.
The weather was fantastic and we had a great picnic lunch under the shade of some trees, in fact we just had a wonderful time together.
