    North Devon's favourite and friendliest family attraction will be unveiling their latest attraction this season. "The BIG One" – the BIG sheep's new family roller will be open for visitors to enjoy a thrilling and scenic ride taking in views across the park.

    The BIG Sheep has all the magical ingredients required for a guaranteed top family day out. Whatever the weather visitors never leave disappointed! 12 hilarious shows will have visitors laughing out loud. Shows include sheep from around the world strutting their stuff on stage, sheep and duck trials, sheep shearing, horse whispering, lamb feeding and the world famous sheep race, an hysterical sporting event with sheep and jockeys. If you fancy a bit of outdoor play, you can bounce as high as you can on our giant jumping pillows, experience the thrill of flying through the air on our twister ride, get wet and wild in the splash zone or try your skills at archery tag. Younger children will adore travelling on piggy-pull-along, tractor safari ride or train ride around the lake. The swan pedal boats are great fun for adults and children.

    With an animal barn full of puppies, chicks, rabbits, lambs etc., pony rides, massive indoor adventure play zone with great slides and imaginative soft play and our themed combat zone there is plenty for all to enjoy.
