Filled with zip lines, slides, mazes and magical tree houses our visitors run WILD in our beautiful canopied forest together as a family. Adults are encouraged to play alongside the children, evoking their inner WILD child, promoting the nostalgic feel of playing in the woods and getting muddy knees along the way! If the children are asleep in the car on the way home and the parents are smiling, we know we’ve done a good job.

An integral part of the visitor experience, our events programme will offer daily storytelling, face painting and craft activities as well as larger scale events during our peak seasons.
