Meet and handle a range of exotic animals with ZooLab’s expert Ranger Tristan, get up creatures that include giant African land snails, snakes, tarantulas and much more. Zoolab has years of experience working with school children to help educate about interesting creatures. The Zoolab rangers are able to introduce even the youngest of participants to friendly animals in a fun, educational manner.
At ZooLab, they are all about working with animals to amaze, educate and inspire. In everything that they do, animals are at the centre of things. The rangers live with and care for their animals at home: they are not items to be put away in a box, but are part of their lives. They want their animals to be part of other people’s lives too.

Families are among their most important visitors. Play is part of the fabric of Rheged, from the outdoor play area to a cinema made for 3D movies.
