Last week, it was Stephanie and Caroline’s birthday. Because theme parks seem to be our thing, we decided to spend the day at Flamingo Land going on some of the Flamingo Land rides.

I’ve not been to Flamingo Land since I was young. It’s a popular theme park and zoo in North Yorkshire. Because I don’t want this post to be too photo heavy, I’ll save the zoo section of our trip for another post!

Vouchacodes are my best friend. So as we didn’t fancy paying the full £37 for a day ticket, we scoured websites such as VouchaCodes and eventually managed to find a deal where tickets were 2 for 1. So we only paid £16.50 each! Woo.

Flamingo Land

The rides at Flamingo Land are not for the faint-hearted. I like to think I’ve upped my game when it comes to rides, but there were still 4 that I didn’t dare go on! The Cliff Hanger, which is one of those rides that shoot up and just drops you, Kumali, a massive roller coaster that goes upside down and twists, Mumbo Jumbo which has 119 degree drops and hangs you upside down and Flip flop, which is the big yellow claw that spines you around and upside down.

I kind of wish I had gone on Kumali now – it looked so much fun but the upside-down part really put me off!

Here are the rides we did go on though:

Velocity

BEST RIDE EVER. You sit on motorbikes and it goes from 0-60 mph so fast. You have no idea what’s hit you. I felt like my body wasn’t going to keep up and I would just die or something. It’s horrible and exciting and scary and fun all at the same time. Went on twice.

Navigator

This half-pipe disc ride spins you around while going up and down. While at first, it seems quite slow, when it gets fast and you get the feeling you’re going to run off the tracks, it can make you feel a little nervous.

Hero

Laid on your front, face first, you’re ‘flown’ around the track, spun around like a superhero. What a strange ride. I liked it! I thought this was going to be Flamingo Land’s scariest ride, but it was alright!

Voodoo

Woo! Pirate ship! Nothing makes your stomach tingle more than good old pirate ship. They’re always so much fun. I really enjoyed Flamingo Land’s Voodoo ride!

Pterodactyl

I kind of had to beg Christine to come on Pterodactyl with me. It’s a swing that goes up and spins around really fast. It seriously is scary when you get up there and start getting all the mind talk about how you’re just being held on by metal cables and if they snapped, you’d have no chance. The view was beautiful though but it’s so high and scary!

Twistosaurus

This was actually rubbish. Kind of like Animal Kingdom’s Primevil Wave and Lightwater Valley’s Twister, it spins around while going around the track. This was a milder version though. Younger kids would probably like it though.

  8. Ok they are not the type of rides I was expecting at Flamingo Land, rather big! I may have been here before or could have been somewhere else where there were loads of Flamingos. If this place even has Flamingos? By the name I’m guessing yes . . . But you never know! x

  9. Looks like you had a great day! I probably saw you too as I work there in the shops, it’s a lovely day out, I’m going today! (For free may I add) *winky face*
