Ages: 0-12

Venue type: Outdoor

Get ready for an adventure that even Indiana Jones would be proud of! The Crocky Trail is an immense stretch of activity, challenge and, most importantly, fun!

They can’t promise an ancient artefact at the end of this adventure playground, however they can assure you that you’ll enjoy the journey! As you walk in you face your first test with a series of gravity defying scary slides. At the bottom, with your heart already racing, you’ll embark on a trail through fields before reaching the Crocky Stream.

Navigate your way over the rickety bride, careful not to make a splash, and then work your way back to the start through spinning saucers, barrels, spider traps and so much more! Once you’ve completed your quest, it’s time to refuel with something from Crocky bites or sit in the sun and enjoy your picnic, before going round again!

It’s an outdoor adventure guaranteed to thrill!

If a farmer built a theme park using stuff he'd found in his sheds, this would be it, and it's brilliant. There is a mixture of good old fashioned fun and a bit of science in the rides, which make the kids think a bit about why things are moving / spinning! Adults can join in and we did! You get muddy, so wear old clothes, sensible shoes / wellies and take a change of clothes, and enjoy it. Use the mats on the epic slides, we did have to go home early once because of a friction burn, but the 1st aider on site was brilliant. Go on the walk and all of the bridges over the river and the maze and the swings. Take a packed lunch (car park right next to picnic area, no problems with lugging your lunch round with you), buy an ice cream and have a great laugh with your kids - highly recommended.

Seriously overpriced for what it is, most things look like a death trap, didn’t stay a full hour but 2 if us ended up hurt.

Great fun, if you don't mind getting wet and dirty!

It's a long time since I actually visited here, about 10 years, but it is good to see it is still popular. Kids loved it
