Superpowers at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo

Test your own super-skills against those of some of the planet's craziest creatures with fun for the whole family. As part of ZSL’s 2018 Superhero Takeover, you can see if you're as fast as a cheetah, test your agility against a monkey's, pit your sense of smell against that of a brown bear, and see you'd catch a tiger's prey as fast a real tiger!

Kids will get a special comic book, and everyone can attend super-cool talks and demonstrations!

The best of zoos. So much to see and do, a day is never enough. A huge area, so can't be walked in a day with small children. Map and signage could do with extra help to find your way around.
