Snake Weekend

Amazonia, Scotland's indoor tropical rainforest, is set to dedicate a whole weekend to celebrate its residential snakes with a whole heap of activities across Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th July!

Snake Weekend

About Snake Weekend

Visitors to Amazonia will have the opportunity to experience these exotic creatures up close with snake feeding tours, snake handling sessions* plus themed arts and crafts activities across the weekend.

The indoor tropical rainforest is home to a variety of species including the Burmese python, the boa constrictor, the yellow anaconda and the Pueblan milksnake.

Amanda Gott, Zoo Manager at Amazonia, said: “Amazonia is one of the few places in Scotland that people can see snakes and to celebrate these wonderful reptiles, we’re exciting to dedicate a full weekend to them.’

“Snakes are very fascinating creatures and we’re looking forward to sharing lots of fun facts about them and even offering a chance for our visitors to see them up close.”


Aside from its snakes, Amazonia is home to an array of exotic animals including tarantulas, marmoset monkeys and parrots.

Amazonia is open between 10am and 6pm seven days a week and is situated within M&D’s, Scotland’s Theme Park.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Snake Weekend are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
