Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Winner of the Mumsnet Best Outdoor Playground award and VisitScotland and Daily Mail Readers Award for The PERFECT FAMILY DAY OUT. Where else can you ride a 'runaway timber train', explore the world's only 'Bamboozeleum', a Wonder Wood where nothing is normal and an amazing Lost Labyrinth, or try a rock climb, a skydive, tackle Highwire courses, ride a watercoaster, walk through the tops of pine trees? And much more... Check out the shop packed with great gift ideas and the Xplore Store crammed with really fun goodies. And remember to visit our two food outlets, The Foresters Restaurant and The Pinewood Grill. Don't forget to ask about the AMAZING value weekly and season tickets.

“Cracking family day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

Something for all the family, it's small but the space is well used, the staff are brilliant & the place just seams to recharge your battery's. I think it's because you are inside a living forest.

Loved the bit about recharging your batteries - I think we see that a lot - despite families leaving tired and depleted - they still have that happy look and a wee glow.
Thanks on behalf of the staff who really do put a bit extra in to ensure our guests are making the best of their time here - and thanks from manager too for coming in the first place - hope you can return some day.

“A good few hours fun with the kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

Looking for Alton Towers? Forget it - this is a miniature version... There are three water slides (great fun), a small roller coaster - you won't feel sick. There is a great challenge in ropeworx where you have to go around a circuit built high in the trees - negotiation wobble wires or logs - a challenge for most and not for the faint hearted. Then you can climb a huge pole and jump off the top (supported by a belay wheel, so don't worry). There are exhibitions including wood cutting using a steam engine, along with a couple of other displays. We enjoyed our picnic at the top of the fire tower that reveals some pretty fantastic views. Then there's a the bamboozled zone (I think that's its name) the seeks to mess with your head a little. Ok, it's fine, but won't blow you away... The restaurant is ok - we had the coffee and cake deal whilst watching the little birds and ducks out of the window. They have a fast food place - didn't try that so can't say what it's like - smelled good though. There are things for the smaller kids. All in all, you can spend 3 or 4 hours there on your hols as part of the entertainment and fell you've had reasonable value for money at roughly £10 per head.

A big thanks for your review - a really comprehensive look at the place. Very happy that you enjoyed your day here and you felt that the value for money was there too - very important to us. Reading in there some suggestions for ways to make the place even better too, so thanks for that also.

Many thanks again.

Hi

thank you for taking the time to post your review - we are delighted you had a good day here even although it was a bit wet - we hope to be regarded as all weather as there is lots of fun to be had whatever the climate is throwing at us as you found with your son.

So happy to hear your son had a confidence boost - this is one of the areas the park is really trying to foster - challenge and achievement - congrats to your boy - well done!

“kids love it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

a great active mix of water flume rides (not for the faint hearted), small rollercoaster, and a number of slides and high wire trails. over and above the adrenaline stuff there are play park areas for all ages, and some lovely walks. history of woodland activities can be seen on site too. personally felt the indoor section with visual tricks and gimmicks was a bit odd but the children really love it - even if the clever exit via the shop isn't a parents ideal route I can understand the route! is outdoor mostly other than that so come prepared for the weather. top tip, we were nearby so came for a while in the morning, went away for lunch and came back in the afternoon and avoided a lot of crowds. may not work in the height of summer though but allowed us to break the day a little.

Hi Lovelymum69

many thanks for your kind comments and for some food for thought about how our attractions are perceived. Bamboozeleum has been really well received by the majority as a complementary - but very different fun attraction - so much so we hope to grow that theme over the next few years. The "incredible shrinking chair" - see the web site - is a first in that line and has been well enjoyed by all. We hope that we can continue to offer exciting and entertaining attractions to all our guests across a wide range of interests.
Many thanks again.

“FANTASTIC FUN FOR ALL THE FAMILY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

We had our first visit yesterday and everybody in our party, from the 4 year old to granny, had a brilliant day out. We enjoyed all the attractions and the home baking in the cafe was delicious. It rained during our visit but it didn't spoil our fun. We arrived at 10.30 in the morning and didn't leave until 4.30 in the afternoon. The staff made our day out complete with their friendliness and good humour. Only thing to watch out for is the very slippy wood walkways when wet.

We have been missing out on responding to our guests for a while but we are back!
Apologies to all those who took the time to comment and a big thanks...
But Dipel - thanks for your excellent comments and for the comment about the boardwalk - indeed it can get slippery in wet weather and we are looking at cost effective and indeed sustainable ways in which to remedy this. - All ideas welcome!

Thanks again to all your family for coming.
