Amazingly confusing! I had the best time at this place. I was a little apprehensive because the website doesn't seem to explain very well what you will actually find here but maybe that adds to the mystery! But it is basically a giant fun filled maze, only warning is to start planning to leave about 30 minutes before you want... More

We had our first visit on Sunday and what a great day out it was. Pre-booked a 1pm slot and took the wife and two young kids. Some had said it wasn't an appropriate place for kids of our age (two girls; 2yrs and the other 11months) but it was no problem. The youngest was really fairly oblivious to her... More

I recently visited Forbidden Corner with a friend and her two young children. We had a great day, exploring the tunnels and different themed areas, and considered it to be good value. As a previous reviewer has observed, some of it was a bit too dark and scary for small children. I do feel that there are some omissions from... More

We visited for a sunday just to pass some time really but ended up really getting into the spirit of ticking off all the items on the checklist that you get given, nearly getting them all but some were much easier than others. The £11 adult entry was a bit steep, but a lot of effort has gone into making... More

This was brilliant but I can't give too much away. This is brilliant for children but even better for big kids too. We went as a couple in our ealy 30s and had a great time. We were possibly the only people there without children but that didn't matter. Awesome way to spend a few hours, especially if its a... More

I was taken here as a surprise,& I loved it! We went round trying to tick off places on a map, and it really added to the sense of adventure. It was a grey November day, but it really didn't matter. The only thing I would say is that some sections are quite scary - the mausoleum for example -... More

I took my 8 year old grandson and his friend to the Forbidden Corner on October 28th this year and they had a great day out. It's difficult to know how to describe the Forbidden Corner - it needs a category all of its own. A weird adventure involving tunnels, water, turrets, gateways and mazes, it's own description for itself... More

This was our second time here. Some of the group had not been before so we tried to let them lead. This was great fun once again and although we explored almost every pathway I am sure we missed things Since our last visit there are even more areas open and more things to discover. There is also no Brass... More

everyone raves about this place so thought id try it out. you have to book so it doesn't become crowded, however what we found was an overly crowded place. we booked for 3pm, upon arrival we struggled to find somewhere to park, we eventually parked in the overflow carpark after circling for what seemed forever! The place itself was so... More
