This May half term at Whipsnade Zoo, find out if you can take the Top Trumps crown.

Grab your limited edition super Top Trumps card at the entrance, then head out around Whipsnade Zoo to find our giant Top Trumps cards to play against! 

You’ll be able to pick up a new super card each time you visit – can you collect all three*? Gold members, Fellows and Patrons will also be able to collect an extra special additional Super Top Trumps card.

Each giant card is stationed at one of our animal exhibits, from American flamingos to Asian elephants. Pick a category on your card to pit against that of our animals, whether it’s speed, lifespan, cute factor, daily food intake, EDGE score or Top Trumps rating. 

Read out your category score, then lift the flap to see if you got the higher number and won the battle. 

With 6 giant cards to find on the trail, see if you can beat Whipsnade Zoo and compete against your friends and family for the win!

Plus, enjoy themed talks about the top traits of our featured animals throughout the May Half term week. 

Our Top Trumps trail is at the Zoo for May half term (27 May to 4 June) along with our animal talks, then the trail alone will continue until 2 July, so there’s plenty of chances to play your hand and collect all of the super Top Trumps cards*!

This event is perfect for children aged 5-9 but suitable for older kids, too.
