Under the Covid-19 Protection Framework (the Traffic Light System) the below applies from the 3rd of December 2021:


Vaccine passes:  These are mandatory in order to visit the park.  All visitors aged 12 years and three months plus will need to show their vaccine pass, and adults will also need to show their photo ID.

This protects not only our visitors and staff, but also our animals who are currently unable to be vaccinated against Covid-19.


Signing in:  Visitors aged 12 years and over will need to sign in.


Face coverings:  Under Orange and Red face coverings are mandatory for everyone aged 12 years and over for the duration of your visit.


You must not visit if you have any cold or flu like symptoms, are self-isolating, awaiting the results of a Covid test or are positive for Covid, as per all government advice.


Under Red there is a limit of 100 people (of any age) per group.


Please note these conditions are subject to change at any time.


Open everyday of the year

Paradise Valley Springs is open every day of the year (365 days), including each and every public holiday.

We're open from 8am until dark, with last entry to the park at 5pm. Tickets must be purchased before 5pm to allow entry, then you are able to leave at any time until dark.

Lion Feeding is every day at 2.30pm.

Only 10-15 minutes drive from Rotorua city and many other Rotorua attractions - away from the traffic noise and that sulphur smell that Rotorua is known for!

We are an all weather attraction, suitable for all age groups, and there is plenty of free parking.

Be sure to allow at least one to two hours for your visit.
