A half-million pound upgrade will put a family attraction in the Norfolk Broads "back on the map", its new owner hopes.
Since closing for the winter, Pettitts Animal Adventure in Reedham has been getting a revamp.
The park, bought in December 2017 by Norwich-based developer Michael Abbott, will reopen next month with five new animal-themed attractions.
These are a safari adventure car ride, a play beach with a sandpit, a crazy caterpillar rollercoaster, a Little Explorers balloon ride and a bouncing kangaroo ride.
The last of these is a “unique ride”, Mr Abbott said, adding: “Not many parks in the UK have this kind of ride. It is a very popular attraction in Europe.”
“As soon as the park is up and running again, we don’t want to sit back and relax,” Mr Abbott added. “We are always on the lookout for new stuff.”
