Are Your Kids Going To Miss Their School Trips?

Matt Crisp January 15, 2021

The end of the term school trip was a rite of passage that every schoolchild went though, whether it was an educational visit to a historical site or a day of thrill-seeking adventure at a theme park. But with the continuing coronavirus pandemic and schools being closed, why not plan your own homeschooling trip this summer?

There might not be much travelling permitted at the moment, but as the vaccine rolls-out, by the time the spring and summer arrives, we’ll all be looking forward to getting away for a family adventure. Let’s have a look at some of the newest attractions in the UK to visit.


Tornado Springs at Paultons Park, UK

Tornado Springs was due to open at Paultons Park in 2020 but was postponed due to the coronavirus.

This new mid-western American themed land will feature eight new attractions, including Storm Chaser, a themed spinning roller coaster. There will also be a driving school ride, a giant spinning pendulum ride, and many more. Tornado Springs is scheduled to open on 19 March.


The World of David Walliams/Gangsta Granny at Alton Towers, UK

Alton Towers has long been a favourite destination for school trips, and now the park has added a whole new adventure land, based around the children’s books of David Walliams, the highlight being a new dark ride, Gangsta Granny: The Ride, a new 4D Dark Ride experience, where riders will join Granny and Ben on a heist to steal the crown jewels from the Tower of London.


Lego Mythica at Legoland Windsor, UK

It’s not just kids who will enjoy visiting Legoland Windsor, and it will soon be home to Lego Mythica. Not a great deal is known about it yet, but the premise is that it will be a land where every Lego creature built around the world, however big or small, will come to life within the parallel dimension that is Lego Mythica.


The Rainforest at Chessington World of Adventures

Chessington World of Adventures announced last year its plans for a new themed land, The Rain Forest. There will. Be three new exciting rides: Jungle Rangers, a driving ride where guests can explore rainforests for around the world, River rafts, a mini log flume, and Treetop Hoppers, a treetop canopy adventure that features tortoises and capybaras.

There will also be information and facts about conservation to help inspire visitors young and old to help protect the planet.


Hollywood Theme Park, London

At twice the size of the Olympic Park, this Disneyland-style theme park is a collaboration project by Paramount, BBC and Aardman Animations. It will include one of the largest water parks, plus theatres, rides and much more themed around movie productions in film studios.

It has been rumoured that the park may feature attractions based on the Mission Impossible and Star Trek film franchises, and the deal with the BBC means it may include a Doctor Who themed attraction too.
