We recently surveyed our Annual Pass Holders and asked whether they would be happy to support Knockhatch becoming "cashless". We had a fantastic response and 91% of pass holders said that they would support this. We would, therefore, ask that all customers use contactless payment methods across the Park wherever possible.
Can I use Tesco Clubcard Reward Partner code to purchase my ticket?
Tesco Clubcard Reward Partner Codes are being accepted on full priced gate entry (offer subject to change regarding Government Restrictions). If you already have a Tesco Clubcard Reward Partner code please ask them to extend your voucher here.

Please use the queue for all types of payments. Everyone that you have purchased tickets for need to be present at the time of admission. Please use the meeting point to gather your group before strating to queue. It is not possible to reserve a space in the queue for late arrivals. If you require assistance to enter the Park please ask for a Manager. Online tickets guarantee a cheaper entry price but do not guarantee a faster entry system. Visitors will be required to show their booking reference number when entering the Park.

We recognise that some guests require additional assistance from a service animal in order to visit and therefore Knockhatch Adventure Park is pleased to allow fully trained Assistance Dogs into the Park.
Assistance Dogs must be on a lead or harness and accompanied by the disabled person or another member of the party at all times. Please note that Assistance Dogs will not be allowed to accompany guests onto the rides or into the Pirate’s Cove for health and safety reasons.

After touching any of the animals or their fences always wash your hands, especially before putting fingers in mouths or eating as animals can carry diseases which could be harmful to you. Do not put anything in your mouth if it has touched the fence or been dropped on the ground.
Please do not eat or drink in the animal area.
We have hand washing stations around the farm and the best way to clean your hands is water and soap.
If you are pregnant, we advise you do not touch or feed the animals.
All the animals at Knockhatch Adventure Park are tested for known diseases on a regular basis by our vet.

Knockhatch Adventure Park was founded in 1998 by Annette Jaggers. The park originally consisted of a small collection of animals and a laser tag game. Over the years, the park has expanded to include a wider variety of attractions and is now one of the larger adventure parks in the south-east of England.
Can Knockhatch Adventure Park donate a prize for my fundraising event?
Due to the high demand for prizes for different events we decided to nominate a charity that we fundraise for and donate to yearly.
Knockhatch Adventure Park’s nominated charity is Chestnut Tree House. It is therefore with regret that we are unable to support fundraising events for other charities with complimentary tickets, donations or merchandise.
