The Fortress is the main focal point when you enter the park. Nothing like running about like mad through and around the wooden fort. Scrambling through the tunnels and playing fun games as you go around.

East Links has its very own train safari which is actually really fun to go on. It can get rather busy so just make sure to queue up early to guarantee a spot on the train. As you go around on the train you can see all the animals and more of the fun facilities the park has to offer.
