Paultons Park has become the first UK amusement park to achieve the title of ‘the UK’s best-rated amusement park’ in TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Awards, for three consecutive years.

The popular attraction was also awarded the ninth best-rated amusement park in Europe and 24th in the world.

TripAdvisor announced the winners of its Travellers’ Choice Awards, where the winners were selected based on reviews and star ratings of visitors.

An algorithm was used in order to determine the top 10 list, and took into account the quantity and quality of reviews for amusement parks and waterparks in the UK, gathered over a 12-month period.

TripAdvisor’s Paultons Park listing shows that 93 per cent of guests who have visited the Park reviewed their trip as either “excellent” or “very good”.

Significant investment has been injected into the park in the last 12 months, with the addition of two new rides at the world’s first and UK exclusive Peppa Pig World, in May. The Queen’s Flying Coach Ride and Grampy Rabbit’s Sailing Club are the first two new rides launched at the attraction since it first opened in 2011.

Richard Mancey, Paultons Park managing director, said: “We are very proud of this recognition and humbled to be the only UK theme park to have received this award three years in a row. The TripAdvisor award is one we strive to receive as it shows that our guests are having an enjoyable and high quality experience when they come to the park.

“The team at Paultons Park work extremely hard to ensure that our guests make memories with their families in a fun, safe and clean environment. We continue to add to our offering and after many years of planning, this year we’ve added two new rides at Peppa Pig World. Both rides can be enjoyed by the whole family, including babies who can be held by a parent. This adds to our list of more than 70 rides and attractions for the children of all ages to enjoy.”

Earlier this year Paultons Park also launched a new African-themed animal attraction called Little Africa.

Little Africa houses a number of interesting animals native to the continent, including fennec foxes, African crested porcupines, meerkats, and many more.

Paultons Park is also home to Jurassic-themed attraction Lost Kingdom that features two world-class family rollercoasters: Flight of the Pterosaur and Velociraptor.
