Longleat Safari and Adventure Park have announced they are joining forces with BBC Worldwide to create deadly themed features to add to the attractions.
Deadly Adventure at Longleat with BBC Presenter Steve Backshall
During a mapped out four year plan the park will become home to a series of attractions in the style of BBC's successful programmes such as Deadly Top 10s and Deadly Mission Madagascar (as seen on CBBC).
Phil Murphy, Managing Director of BBC Worldwide Live Events said: "Bringing a real life Deadly adventure to Longleat Safari and Adventure Park is a fantastic opportunity that demonstrates what the Deadly brand is all about, encouraging children to explore the natural world and discover its wonders for themselves."
From Easter 2013, visitors to the park will be able to explore some of Longleat's deadliest creatures. BBC Presenter Steve Brackshall has recorded some facts and a guide to help teach visitors about some of the animals as well as some of the experiences he has had.
An activity book will also be available for visitors to find how good their spotting skills are at finding some of the animals across the park.
Longleat CEO, David Bradley said: "We're delighted to be working with the BBC on this exciting project and having the opportunity to bring 'Deadly' to our visitors. With so many amazing animals here at Longleat the new 'Deadly Adventure' experiences will give our visitors the chance to experience firsthand all the exciting elements of the TV programme right here in the wilds of Wiltshire!"
The Deadly Adventure zone of the park will be open from March, 31, 2013 with free entry with a valid day ticket to the park or an annual pass.
