Evening walk on a cold clear night in the illuminated forest.
A brilliant, albeit chilly, time was had by young and old alike at Thetford Forest's Electric Forest attraction.
Thoroughly recommend for families and couples.
Push chair friendly-ish but could be difficult on a wet night.
The walk begins with a short briefing about what you are going to see in the forest and what to look out for, there are prizes for kiddies if they find special flashing stars. You then proceed under the Go-Ape section on to the first of several playgrounds, of which all are floodlit, and big enough for the biggest of kids. You then meander through the forest and admire the light show as trees and forest are brought to life in a melody of sound and vision. It's a pleasant invasion of your senses as you take in the spectacular natural architecture of the leafless trees whilst colours dance across their trunks and canopies against a pitch-black back drop.
Half way round there is a concessionary area complete with fire pits over which marshmallows can be toasted whilst you sup on a welcome cup of hot chocolate. My advice would be to ensure you get a nice hot cup here because there is still a way to go, and it is rather cold out there.
On you go to enjoy further amazing sights and interpretive and interactive light shows, whilst the kiddies look for flashing stars and learn about the animals and plants that live in the forest.
Back at the lodge there is a great selection of hot food available and welcome fire to warm yourself by whilst you reflect on the experience of the Electric Forest. A great festive treat!
Don't forget your camera or your thermal undies!
