We all know the benefits of the Great Outdoors, however sometimes it’s hard to tear the children away from their screens. Thankfully, Conkers has got everything you’ll need to get them packing away their electronic devices.
A fantastic mix of indoor and outdoor fun means even the weather isn’t an excuse not to explore the 120 acres of woodland, 18 stage activity trail, over 100 interactive exhibits and, for the daredevils, rope courses, zip wire and climbing wall!
Ride the conkerchoo train, brave the barefoot walk, let the kids lose in the water play area before drying off to meet the giant ants and beetles, jump on the interactive forest floor and walk along a moving forest canopy, just watch out for bats!
Fly, jump, climb and cross in this amazing indoor and outdoor adventure!
