Pleasurewood Hills Family Theme Park has become the home of two Great White Pelicans.
Also commonly known as the Eastern White Pelican, they are the second largest species of all pelicans with a wingspan that can range from 2.5 to 3.5 meters and a maximum weight of an adult male bird approaching 15kg.
Like most of the parrots and sea lions at Pleasurwood Hills, the pelicans too have starred in many blockbuster movies, television shows and featured in advertisements. The new feathered friends will be appearing in ITV’s new drama series ‘The Durrells’, starring Keeley Hawes and James Cosmo. The Great White Pelicans have recently spent 8 weeks in Corfu, Greece filming the new series and have arrived at the park for the summer season.
For over 30 years, Pleasurewood Hills has entertained visitors to the attraction with parrot and sealion shows and the park has also continued to grow every single year, making it one of the most popular attractions in East Anglia.
The 2015/16 season will be no exception with the arrival of the new pelicans and from the park having undergone refurbishment including new painting, theming and landscaping with the planting of over 1,000 plants and trees.
Today the park is also home to four rollercoasters including the new Marble Madness ride introduced to the park just a couple of years ago that proves to be ever popular with both families and teenagers. Visitors can also get the chance to jump onboard Wipeout, the tallest, fastest and most extreme roller coaster in the East of England! Get soaked on Timber Falls log flume, plummet 60ft per second with a 5.5G force on the Jolly Roger Drop Tower or simply relax and enjoy one of the entertainment shows on offer every day.
There’s also plenty to do in park for youngsters and toddlers with the ‘Kiddie Zone’, with lots of rides designed specifically for families with younger children.
