Great fun until my friend fell in the water!

It was very fun and very impressive. We were 4 adults and got thoroughly involved (and lost!) trying to find everything and all the different routes. The water sprays were fun but... read more

It was very fun and very impressive. We were 4 adults and got thoroughly involved (and lost!) trying to find everything and all the different routes. The water sprays were fun but sadly my friend tried to rush past one and ended up falling into the small stream. Thankfully she was ok if not very wet! Moral of the story... More

First of all, the gate into the attraction is narrow, meaning if two reasonably sized cars come face to face at the gate then this can cause traffic problems with a disrupted flow into and out of the attraction. This attraction is not ideal for everyone. There is not a lot to see or do and the whole place is... More

We visited recently after a recommendation from one of my brothers. Had no real idea of what to expect but we all agreed it was fantastic, despite the rain and one of the children being frightened of lots of things. Lots of surprises (motion activated water sprays) and the underground section was like something from a film set. Would go... More

Wow, what a fantastic and unexpected day. I thought it would be tacky and theme parky but that couldn't be further from the truth. It was so well made and thought through and a total delight for the children "of all ages". If you are little claustrophobic this probably isn't the visit for you, but for everyone else there are...

We visited The Forbidden Corner with my boyfriend's little girl who is 4 years old. We pre-booked and in total, for three of us, it cost just over £30, which I feel was really good value. We arrived at 2pm and left at 6pm but could have easily spent at least another hour there. It is great as you can... More

Although the weather forecast was dismal it stayed dry for a a few hours. We all enjoyed ourselves exploring tunnels, paths that go nowhere, being squirted by water as you walk past, and a host of other things such as where does this door go? We decided to have our lunch in the cafe, the food was really good and... More

I love the forbidden corner, we first went a year ago and had been eagerly awaiting a second visit. On entering we somehow managed to find a whole area to the right we'd missed last time, it was a nice surprise and highlights just how vast the place is. However, for all it's vastness, there were some severe overcrowding issues... More

I had read a few negative things, but despite this we booked the day for us and our grandkids, aged 6 and 4. I needn't have been concerned, they loved it. The 4 year old was a bit scared at a couple of the tunnels but once through he loved it, realising that it wasn't as scary as he thought!!... More
