Hello Kitty says farewell to Drusillas!

“After seven wonderful years at Drusillas, we will shortly be waving a fond farewell to Hello Kitty, and our Hello Kitty Secret Garden area will be closing on 27th December 2021 to make way for something very exciting!

We’ve loved having Hello Kitty as part of the Drusillas family, but all good things must come to an end, and we are thrilled to announce that we will be transforming the area and rides into a brand new attraction – The Rainforest Adventure!

The Rainforest Adventure will expand on the beautiful theming of our Rainforest Carousel, offering reimagined versions of the much-loved cars, teacups, and hopper rides, creating a space where you can continue to make wild memories for you and your family.

Hello Kitty’s Secret Garden and rides will close from 27th December 2021 meaning the last opening date of this area will be 23rd December 2021 before our three day closure for Christmas. We apologise that we were unable to give you more notice of the Hello Kitty closure, but the complexities of the contract law meant we were not able to. Work will start straight away, which we estimate will take up to five months to complete. We hope to have the new area up and running at the end of May 2022, ready for the warmer weather.

We are firmly committed to continually developing and improving Drusillas and we hope it is evident that we always strive for the highest of standards for you all. We know that this cannot be achieved by simply ‘doing what we’ve always done’ and we can’t wait for you to experience another exciting development at the Park.

Although news of The Rainforest Adventure is very exciting, it’s impossible to develop new projects without a little disruption to our normal service. So we’ve put some benefits in place during this time, as a thank you for your patience whilst three rides and area are being transformed:

  • Members will receive an additional month of free membership
  • All paying guests visiting whilst the work is carried out will receive a half price voucher for their next visit
  • Hippopotobus, Flying Cheetahs, and Rainforest Carousel will run on more frequent rotations on our quieter days – check out our other ROARsome rides here!

We are also planning on providing some coin-operated children’s rides free of charge around the Park early in 2022, and will let you know when these are in place.

And don’t forget, whilst The Rainforest Adventure is underway, the rest of the Park will be operating as normal, and there are lots of lovely new things to explore; our revamped Go Bananas! playground, SPARK which is open weekends and daily throughout the holidays, and our fabulous new coati enclosure which opens soon!

We cannot wait to welcome you all to the jungle in 2022!”
