In order to make this a fun and safe environment for all there is a restricted number of Jungle Tumble Admission Tickets available to book per day. This has been done with both staff and guest safety in mind, and to improve your experience within the soft play area, avoiding over crowding and making sure more people are able to enjoy the play area each day. There are height restrictions for the soft play areas, please check our rules of play for more details.

Each slot available is 45 minutes long, with the first slot starting at 10.30am. You will need to pre-book a FREE Jungle Tumble admission ticket for each child who would like to enter the play area. This includes those children under 3 years old and Zoo Passholders. You do not need to book a Jungle Tumble slot for any parents/guardians accompanying the child.

Jungle Tumble is a very popular area of the zoo therefore consecutive play sessions are not permitted. Please do not attempt to book consecutive play sessions as you will be asked to leave Jungle Tumble after the first play session and not readmitted.

To avoid disappointment please do not expect to be admitted for consecutive play sessions. We kindly ask you to respect our staff implementing this policy.

PLEASE NOTE: Both children and their parents/guardians must already have valid admission to Colchester Zoo (zoo pass/paid ticket/complimentary ticket) to enter Jungle Tumble.

As per our entry terms and conditions, we operate a zero-tolerance policy for physical or verbal abuse towards staff. Any visitors behaving inappropriately will be asked to leave the park immediately without refund being made.
