Meet the Pride of Knowsley! Our Lion Experience offers you the chance to go behind the scenes at the Lion enclosure to learn what it takes to look after these magnificent predators.
What will you get up to? For around one hour, you will be with the animal team preparing and supporting them with their morning duties as they get ready for the lions to be released into their enclosure.

The Lion Experience is available for adults and children aged 8 years and over. However, children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult who also has an Experience voucher.
There will be a maximum of 2 people per experience. Please note the accompanying adult may be required to go behind the scenes during the experience with the participant and it is therefore not suitable for the accompanying adult to be supervising another non-participating child.
After purchasing your Lion Experience voucher(s), a gift voucher will be sent out in the post to you with instructions on how to book your encounter. You must book your session prior to arrival by calling the phone number on the voucher. Our Lion experiences run on Wednesdays and Saturdays from March-October. The sessions must be pre-booked, they are non-transferable and non-refundable.
