Devon’s Crealy Great Adventure Park is an award winning family attraction located just minutes from junction 30 of the M5 near Exeter. The Park has over 60 rides and attractions set in over 100 acres of glorious Devon countryside and caters for the whole family, from the smallest children to parents and grandparents alike. There are over 100 animals, 30 outdoor attractions and a variety of other activities to choose from, with heart-stopping rides for thrill seekers to soft-play and animal petting for younger guests, Devon’s Crealy is the South West’s number one family day out.
Meerkat Manor is home to the cheeky Meerkat family and is undoubtedly one of the most popular animal residents. Highly active and sociable, you’ll often see them nipping down holes, digging new tunnels or standing on their hind legs surveying their terrain. A breeding pair first arrived at the Adventure Park in 2011 and have successfully bred. Meerkat Manor is next to the Vortex theme park ride and just inside the Adventure Park’s entrance. Make sure you stop by and say hello on your day out. Alternatively you could take your little monkey to meet the ones at Crealy! Extremely small in size, the Marmoset Monkeys are always active and busy. Located in the Animal Kingdom, watch them leap from branch to branch, groom each other or peel a grape (their favourite food). In their jungle themed enclosure, these are the smallest animal friends to live at the tourist attraction. You can also meet some wallabies, hand feed goats and groom ponies too. Take your little ones up close and personal to groom the miniature shetland and spotted ponies. Once your little ones have groomed a pony they will be awarded a grooming sticker.
