Flamingo Land is a theme park and a zoo in North Yorkshire, England. It has the second largest amount of roller coasters of any park in the United Kingdom, second to Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

History[edit | edit source]

The park was originally opened in 1959 as a zoo. A carnival began coming to the park. This funfair gradually developed into a permanent carnival alongside the zoo. The park started adding roller coasters and the caravan park was added and the park came to where it is now.
