Paultons Park, home to Peppa Pig World has over 60 rides and attractions, all set in 140 acres of beautiful gardens. New for 2015, step into Critter Creek and explore ‘Beastie Burrow’ a real life bug emporium complete with fascinating and unusual insects, fish and lizards.
Enjoy a workshop in Professor Blast’s Learning Lab. This highly themed immersive classroom ‘attraction’ will capture student’s imagination and provide a stunning setting for a curriculum-based session. Hands-on learning is encouraged in our ‘Science Explorer’ activity, where the physics behind the rides comes to life through a series of interactive exhibits.
Other workshops in the lab include ICT – Ride Control where students programme their very own K’NEX SkySwinger using a laptop and Flow Go control box. Out of the Lab, we run a popular half-day workshop called “Forces and Materials” where students are led on a tour of the park to discover (and experience) a range of forces for themselves. Our animals are also very special to us, and a range of workshops looking at habitats and adaptation is also offered – some of which take place in Professor Blast’s Learning Lab.
New workshops in 2016 include our Rollercoaster Physics workshop explores the physics behind a rollercoaster! Children take charge of their own K’Nex ride as they conduct an experiment to explore the variables which affect whether a carriage will be able to ‘loop-the-loop’.
For older students we run series of focussed presentations including customer service, marketing and ICT. All presentations are supported by student booklets and a CD containing resources.
