Sloth Play is Fife Zoo’s very own purpose built soft play adventure!

Follow the trail through the jungle door into the Sloth Play Café and let your little monkey swing through the treetops in our rainforest retreat!

Explore the forest floor with giant anteaters, climb through the canopy with Capuchin and fly with macaws, discover the Amazon river with giant otters, but be extra careful at the piranha crossing!

Our bespoke indoor soft play area has been specially designed to cater for little explorers from 0 years up to 12 years of age and focuses on biodiversity of South America and the Amazon rainforest and raises awareness of current conservation issues, including deforestation and the use of palm oil.

We’re open from 10am to 5pm every day – last entry at 4:15pm

Sadly We have lost Sloth Play to a major fire onsite!

One week after opening from being shut for months due to COVID-19, we experienced a huge fire onsite. This was very traumatic for the whole team along with the local community, as we have so many loyal visitors who visited the play area.

  • Thankfully, no humans or animals were hurt!, however we cannot say that for the whole Sloth Play building and everything in it. The fire also caused great damaged to our newly renovated Discovery Center, that was set to open later in 2020 .
  • We have had great support locally and a far.
  • People have been donating via our GOFUNDME page, in person and via our website.
  • We have been overwhelmed with letters, emails, texts and phone calls with the offer of help and support. Thank you all, we really appreciate it.)

We are now looking to the future and working to rebuild what we have lost on site, watch this space for regular updates on our progress!
