Superhero Fun at Yorkshire Wildlife Park
3rd June 2019
Super-fans are flocking to a marvellous comic book heroes event this weekend at the award-winning Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
The incredible Superheroes weekend from Friday May 31st to Sunday June 2nd includes an immersive exhibition of life-sized statues of iconic characters including Spider-Man, Iron Man and Hulk, and original comics, in partnership with The World of Superheroes. Visitors to the park in Branton, near Doncaster, enjoy an amazing Fan-Zone, which showcases comic book models along with face-painting, superhero crafts and a themed trail around the park. The event also includes a spectacular 'Hollywood Movies Stunt Show' every day. -The park is full of super animals so it is only fitting that we have a weekend of superheroes, said Events Manager Chris White. -Everyone was looking forward to the world of comic book heroes coming to life at the park. -It's a great event for all the family to get involved in some superhero fun while also coming face to face with YWP's incredible animals. -You can even grab a selfie with a 1989 Batmobile! The park also hosts a Cosplay competition and a chance for visitors to dress up as their favourite characters to win prizes. The epic event gives visitors the opportunity to brave mini-adventures including a giant free-fall stunt jump onto an airbag, bungee trampolines, and a sprint tunnel radar gun challenge. The park, which opened in 2009, allows visitors to get up close to some of the world's most endangered and beautiful animals, including Amur Leopards and Tigers, African lions, and the country's only Polar Bears, in a breathtaking walkthrough adventure.
