Autism Friendly Day At Monkey World

On Saturday 16th May from 9am, Monkey World will be opening its gates 1 hour before the general public to help autistic visitors and their families avoid the rush at the gates. The park will also have a sensory trail for the day and dedicated chill out spaces. Monkey World is proud to work with the Autism Adventures- Minecraft and Meltdowns group, who will be supporting the day with sensory play and drop-in support. With this, and over 260 rescued monkeys and apes, and 3 play areas, Monkey World hopes to be a great day out- for all.
