Plan Your Day

At Secret Valley we want to give our visitors an unforgettable experience, joining in with our animal interactions sessions allows visitors to get up close to animals which they might never have had a chance to before. For our younger visitors this can open up a whole new world and teach them all about caring for animals.

We also want our visitors to enjoy our whole park. Areas of the park have being allowed to go wild to provide a natural environment for the many native species we have living here. To explore all areas of the park visitors can participate in our Adventure hunts and with a large outdoor play area, obstacle course, wild golf and an indoor play area with an art table which are all included in the admission price.

For our trill seeking visitors try a spin on our quad train for an exciting view of the park

(Nominal 2 euro per person applies)
