Owl Show


Indoor Owl Show

Visit our Animal Encounters barn near the Tommy Tractor Play Barn and sit in on our informative Owl Show which runs for approx 20minutes. Please see our Daily Park Information page for times.The Animal Encounter Barn doors are opened for the Owl Show at the times shown around the park, we do not open the doors earlier as we use the minutes before to prepare the Owls for the show and like to ensure they are kept calm. Once everyone’s inside, the doors are closed and unfortunately late admission isn't permitted to avoid disturbing and upsetting the owls. Please note that all children must be accompanied by their parents or responsible adult and Knockhatch reserve the right to refuse admission and change/cancel a show without notice.

If you visit our Owl Show off peak and are in a small audience, you may be lucky to be able to stroke an owl, or be given the opportunity to hold one! This decision will be down to the handlers, the time left and if the owls are happy. Please ensure that if you do touch any owl that you carefully wash your hands afterwards at one of our hand washing facilities. Please ensure that if you do touch any owl that you carefully wash your hands afterwards at one of our hand washing facilities.We ask that you refrain from eating and drinking during the owl show.

Learning Experience

Sitting in on one of our owl shows is a real learning experience. Find out about Mufusa our Southern White Faced Owl, but don’t be deceived by his size for he is a ferocious predator, he has enormous eyes which help to pick out its food source in low light conditions, including insects which they love to eat. He has a small brain (1/4 of the size of a baked bean) which makes them one of the least intelligent birds.

You may also get to see Rusty our Tawny Owl a species of owl widespread in England and well adaptive in the environment. This owl is about the size of a pigeon with black eyes, which means it is nocturnal. This owl uses stealth to fly quietly to creep up on its prey. When this owl swoops over your head, you won’t hear a sound!

Gandalf our UK Barn Owl is a firm favourite, did you know that they weren't known as a Barn Owls until the Romans invaded. (You may know them as the Ghost Owl). Gandalf can hear something 100m away, the length of a football pitch! Are Barn Owls water resistant? How can you tell if a Barn Owl is a male or female? Come to one of our shows and maybe you'll find out!

REVIEW *****
We have just spent an amazing day at Knock hatch adventure park! I took my 2 children aged 8 and 5 and my friend took her 13 year old and 8 year old and there was sooo much for all of them to do!! It is brilliant value to get in at £12.99 per person or 3 of you for £31. 00... In that ticket price you can meet animals, go on lots of rides, a roller coaster simulator, swings, froggies play centre, quaderpillar ride and rowing boats on the lake... There's also lots of other things to do too including a massive play area with a dragon, dinosaur drop slide area, lots of animatronics and a water slide! I have to say all of the staff were so friendly! Any time I bought anything or went on a ride they all said enjoy your day in a really friendly polite manner! They were very chatty and helpful! You can see that all of the money goes back in to making the place better, adding new things and improving them! It's got huge since the last time I went! Food and drink is also very reasonably priced which Is lovely as you don't feel ripped off at the end of the day!! All in all a fantastic day out for all ages that thoroughly entertained all the kids as well as us mums that like to play too haha
