Landmark Forest Adventure Park
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Winner of 'The Perfect Family Day Out' but Visit Scotland and The Daily Mail, Landmark Forest Adventure Park also won Mumsnet 'Best Outdoor Playground' award. Where else can you twist and turn through the trees on a family friendly roller-coaster, take the plunge down one of three water coasters and even get the chance to walk through an amazing tropical hot-house with hundreds of stunningly beautiful butterflies and exotic flowers!? Be intrigued at the world’s first Bamboozeleum right here in the Cairngorms; you’ll enter a magical gallery of illusions and puzzles to test the sharpest of wits. See infinity rooms, morphing machines, thermal imagery and more that will fascinate the youngest to the wisest of minds. Take an adventure down to the Wonderwood where nothing is as it seems! Here you will find three mind-boggling cabins where the normal rules of physics simply don’t apply. Which one will be your favourite – The Spinning Vortex, Topsy Turvy Room or the Growing-Shrinking Room? For those looking for a real challenge why not take on RopeworX, the first high-ropes course of its kind in the UK. According to scientists you are officially 98% monkey, so now’s your chance to put their theory to the test. Harness up and step up to the plate! For those under 1.5m, the Tarzan Trail offers a great alternative and the Wee Monkey Trail is absolutely ideal for those aged 2-5. Perhaps the mightiest challenge of them all though is Skydive. Skydive is a pure adrenaline experience, just harness up, climb the mast to 50 feet and step off… easy! Just don’t let the nerves get the better of you! The latest addition to the park is the Butterfly house, which is an amazing tropical hot-house with hundreds of stunningly beautiful butterflies and exotic flowers. Watch close-up as they hatch, fly and feed on nectar and fruit. Make sure to look out for the recently added Asian Quail, scuttling through the undergrowth! Are you brave enough to follow in the footsteps of the Lost Explorer to the safety of The Amazing Tree Mansion? Bubbling mud pools, dangerous caverns, dangerous creatures and a magic waterfall gateway are just a few of the challenges that will bring your adventurous family lots of laughs and scares on the way. Don’t forget to take in the beauty and tranquillity of the 10,000 year old forest via the Tree Top Trail. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for some rare, red squirrels on the way! If you enjoy this walkway, then you’ll love the panoramic views from the top of the Forest Tower. Families have been enjoying Landmark Forest Adventure Park for nearly 50 years and with all these great activities on offer, it’s a must-do for any family in the Cairngorms National Park!

“Great day out”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We opted to purchase a season ticket for our family as it costs less than a return trip and also, it would encourage us to use this great, outdoor park more often.

There is something for everyone at Landmark, especially the thrill-seekers. I love the fact that there are no additional costs once you have paid your entry fee (other than coin operated cars, food etc.) The climbing wall and a range of other activities that require you to wear safety equipment (provided) are all free.

You could spend all day here as there is so much to do. We visited the cafe which had a good range of food. We opted for soup as it was a very cold day and it was delicious and also as a season pass holder you receive a discount in the cafe and the shop. There is also various picnic areas if you wanted to take your own food.

The water rides were popular with my eldest boy (10), he loved them. There are three to choose from although one was not operational on the day of our visit.

There is a nature trail that is suitable for wheelchair users. There are various demonstrations on throughout the day too.

Dogs are welcome at Landmark and this was nice to see.

Highly recommend this to families of all ages.

Great day out - loads to see and do. We had a lovely day so couldn't comment on how enjoyable the day would be with bad weather. Staff were friendly and helpful!

Hi feffster

Many thanks for the very kind review - we are delighted you had such a good day.
We have looked into the burger roll issue and all we can think of is that there must have been a breakdown in the procedure for serving this particular veggie burger - the senior member of staff at the Pinewood Grill would like to add her apology to mine too and to reassure you that procedures have been gone over in detail with all staff so there can not be any drop in quality again.

Our policy is to immediately replace any food without question if a customer is dissatisfied - can you let me know if you took the burger back and if it was exchanged or refunded? Ant detail of the roll would be gratefully received as we would perhaps also like to mention this to our supplier.

Thanks once again for taking the trouble to review us.

“Great Family Fun”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

What a difference to a few years ago. We took an 8 year old and 15 year old and spent the whole day here, despite the temperature. We did the treetop walk, the Tarzan Trail, the roller coaster, the water slide, Bambooleleum and even met Lex, the Clydesdale horse. The place was immaculately clean and the staff were lovely. We even bumped into friends we haven't seen for nearly 10 years! Definitely worth a visit.
