On a sunny summer day this was a great find with our two young boys. Kept the kids running around and actually engaged with what was going on. Only let down by the picnic area which is a bit below par.

This is such a clever and entertaining place - I have been a few times and was looking forward to taking my kids around. The warnings about the areas that might be too scary were useful - I was able to split the kids up into a scaredy group and a thrill seeker group! The main problem was the large... More

This is a weird but wonderful place which is great for the whole family. I think this is a hidden treasure in yorkshire we found out about it by word of mouth and I have yet to see if advertised nationally which is great for those visiting but it is a must. The history behind the Forbidden Corner make's it... More

Located this attraction whilst researching things to do in area before visiting the Yorkshire Dales. Having viewed the website, we were not entirely sure what to expect however glad we went ahead and booked for an afternoons visit.

Two families with a range of 7 children from 2 to 14 years old and we all had a great afternoon there. Love the fact that it is old fashioned adventure and fun, not electronics or rides. You should go. I thought the £49 for 5 of us was reasonable too. Try and get a good weather day though.

Website doesn't doesn't it justice, it was interesting and fun for all of us. I have rated it 5 stars due to it bring my first visit novelty factor, I don't think we'd get the same pleasure if we went back again so soon. Maybe leave it for a couple of years so you can re-discover the excitement!

We had a great couple of hours at The Forbidden Corner with our 3 children, 6, 3 & 3. I was worried the younger two would be frightened in parts but they loved it. My only downside was 2 out 3 kids needed the toilet whilst we were in, I knew I had seen a toilet somewhere but knew I... More
