Snorty’s Superslide Mania is part of Hatton Adventure World and as such cannot be used independently. When we had the huge soft play centre developed it was part of the planning consent that the facility was integral to the Adventure World. Once entry is paid visitors can enjoy not only the soft play but our animals, shows, funfair rides, bouncy castles, tractor ride (seasonal) and outdoor adventure play all at no extra cost.
You are very welcome to bring your dog (as long as it is well behaved and on a lead) to Hatton Shopping Village and on the many walks of the Hatton Estate. Unfortunately only licensed assistance dogs are allowed into Hatton Adventure World.
We follow all the Government Guidelines and as such visitors are very welcome to feed our grassnuts to the sheep, pigs and goats in Farmyard Favourites. Our guinea pigs can also be handled in the Guinea Pig Village. Unfortunately visitors cannot get into pens with the animals or bottle feed the lambs for risk of infection.
The health and safety of our visitors is of paramount importance to us at Hatton Adventure World. We actively encourage handwashing after feeding or handling the animals and we have a number of handwashing stations with warm water and soap.
There are 3 specific areas in Superslide Mania. One is suitable for babies, one for toddlers and then our slides and larger area are suitable for children over 0.9 metres (about the height of an average 3 year old). We do ask that arms and legs are covered to ride the slides and socks worn.
When you first arrive at Hatton Country World you’ll be directed by signage to our disabled parking area. All the paths around the shops are concreted and most shops are easily accessible. For those shops with a step, ramps can be provided. Within the Adventure World again the paths are all either concrete or ‘hard standing’. Some shows do take place on grass.
There are disabled toilets behind the Spinning Jenny Restaurant in the Shopping Village, in Snorty’s Superslide Mania and also by Farmyard Favourites in the Adventure World.
Disabled visitors can pay a reduced priced entry to the Adventure World (please call for current disabled entry prices). We suggest that if the disability is not obvious you pop some form of ID into your bag/pocket to be shown at the Entry Kiosk.
You are very welcome to borrow our wheelchair. This can be requested at the Adventure World Entry Kiosk and we take a £25 deposit which is refundable when the wheelchair is returned.
We don’t have electric scooters for hire.
At Hatton we have a number of specific Camping Weekends over the summer. At these times we hire in shower/toilet facilities. Unfortunately these are not a permanent fixture at Hatton so we are unable to accommodate tent campers outside these dates.
We do however have a Caravan Club Certificated Location site on which we can take up to 5 vans, all with electric hook up available.
Entry to the Shopping Village is free.
We have masses of FREE parking. Usually on hard standing but over the summer months when we are very busy you may be directed into the surrounding fields for parking.
Coaches are also welcome and FREE to park at Hatton Country World. Please follow the signage and ring the telephone number details upon arrival.
You are very welcome to bring a picnic. Both in the Shopping Village and also the Adventure World we have a number of picnic benches where you can enjoy your picnic.
You cannot however take your own food into our Restaurants where the tables are reserved for those people having purchased refreshments and meals in these areas.
Hatton Adventure World really is an all-weather attraction now. We have the largest soft play centre in the Midlands (Snorty’s Superslide Mania), a large barn area called Farmyard Favourites with lots of animals and also our Guinea Pig Village. At weekends and in holiday periods we also have a Family Theatre for Children’s Shows and other undercover talks.
Over the February half term we have a lambing marquee set up and opening Easter 2014, Scales and Tails will be our brand new undercover attraction showcasing bugs, reptiles and other animals that children can get up close to and handle.
If the weather has been wet we suggest that visitors either bring wellies or a change of sturdy shoes. In spite of our hard paths around the site, it is a Farm and can as a result get muddy in places.
