This spring we Hoist the Main Sail with a series of nautical themed events as we prepare the good ship Dreamland for summer!
Pirates, mermaids, sailors and explorers are clearing the decks to hunt for treasure over the Easter holiday!
We have a whole host of fun-filled activities for you and the family - and it's all included in your standard park entrance ticket!
And don’t forget to dress up – pirates, mermaids or mermen, sea monsters, adventurers, sailors, space explorers or anything else that takes your fancy!
Featuring: The Dreamland Easter Treasure Hunt!
Free as part of your standard park entrance, a map has been uncovered in Dreamland, could it lead to buried treasure? Have you got the skills to solve the clues, complete the challenges and find the hidden treasure in Dreamland this Easter? Collect your Easter treasure hunting map from Basecamp and prepare yourself for an interactive gaming experience across the entire park, pick up clues, solve puzzles and meet exciting nautical characters. Hunters can be solo or play in teams.
Expect to be enrolled in a mermaid school, learn to be a pirate, travel to the high arctic as well as enjoying the rides and fun of the fair! The treasure hunt is a fun game for all the family to enjoy whilst exploring the park. A small chocolate prize is awarded if the whole map is completed. There will be an alternative sweet prize for children with lactose intolerances.
If that’s not enough, walk the plank to Dreamland to come and see:
