The Ark Poole Park Brings Its Cheeky Characters To Life - Help Name Them And Win A Golden Ticket!

The Ark in Poole Park is set to create more magical moments and active fun and games with the creation of two enchanting new costume characters. 

The Ark’s very own Rabbit and Squirrel will be brought to life in incredible detail with charismatic costumes and cheeky, dynamic characters to inspire and entertain. There’s just one thing missing – their names! Enter The Ark’s competition to name the characters and you could be in with a chance of winning one of two golden tickets valid for 12 months of fun and games in soft play and worth over £500 each. 

Rabbit is thoughtful and creative. She can be shy but on stage she’s a dancing legend and an amazing singer! She’s great at arts and crafts and loves sparkles. 

Squirrel is mischievous. Super active, he’s great at climbing. He loves to play jokes on Tux and is very often naughty! 

Tux is The Ark’s resident penguin super hero. He is smart, sporty, helpful and fun. He’s always ready to try new things and is very excited about the arrival of his friends. Tux was named by a competition winner as part of The Ark’s opening celebrations in December 2013. 

How to Enter: Simply visit or drop it into The Ark and complete an entry form. But hurry! Competition closes on 05.12.16. There are two golden ticket prizes; one for each winning character name. For full terms and conditions, visit
