The Wild Ostrich Ride is a huge family favourite and loved by children and adults of all ages. It’s a gently bucking and bouncing ride that takes you through the African Savannah on board the back of an Ostrich. It’s the wild ride of your life as you twist and turn through the sites and sounds of Africa.

It’s suitable for nearly all ages and everyone loves it. If you close your eyes and listen you’ll hear all the other animals around you, just adding to the fun and creating the dream that you’re a brave bush explorer, riding off into the deep, dark unknown. Will the Ostrich keep up with the rest of the gang, will it wander off on its own into the wilderness and will you return time and time again to keep the fun going?
