If Raccoons & Coatis feature on your favourite animals list (and why wouldn’t they!) then you’re in luck! Our amazing Raccoon & Coati Experience gives you the chance to get up close & personal with everyone’s favourite furry bandits.

In this hands-on experience you’ll head to our raccoon & coati enclosure, opposite our penguin enclosure, for the chance to meet our two female Raccoons and our four Coatis, who all live together.

During your Raccoon & Coati Experience you will have access inside the enclosure for around 15 minutes, where you will get unrivalled access to these adorable creatures. Once they’ve had a chance to settle to you being in the enclosure, you will help their keeper with feeding the animals, offering them food by hand – however, we cannot guarantee that they will always take the food by hand. Their diet is made up of dog biscuits and a mixture of fruit and vegetables, but their favourite treats include eggs, honey and peanut butter. Depending on the day, this will be what you are feeding the animals – so it could get messy!

You will also have the chance to help the keeper carry out the animals’ environmental enrichment routine, including hiding some of their food around the enclosure to encourage them to forage for it. This reinforces the natural behavior of looking for and locating food – a skill which they are well known for!

Our Raccoon & Coati Experience takes place once per day, at 11:00am, so please do book in advance to avoid disappointment. Don’t forget that the price of this hands-on experience  includes day entry for the person doing the experience to the rest of the park too, so why not check out some of our other amazing animals while you visit!

Raccoon & Coati Experience

I paid for my wife to have a "Raccoon Experience" for her birthday. The price also includes full entry to the park. The experience included entry into the Raccoon & Coati enclosure with the keeper and assisting putting out food bowls and hand feeding the Raccoons. The staff were very friendly and answered any questions during the experience. My wife fully enjoyed the experience.
