In the play zone try your hand at LIMBO, race a friend at tyre hopscotch and climb the bale tower or just chill with a cuppa from our very own Snack Shack.

We are also open during October half term, when we split our mazes up into 3 and change the game boards to a HALLOWEEN theme ! There are two mazes with game boards in, the mini maze will be lit up by lights to help you find your way around but the main maze will be done by torchlight. We also open up the Halloween themed SPOOK maze to be done by torchlight for the more adventurous!!. Don’t forget that this maze will be open weekends in October and from Saturday 28th October 2023 to Sunday 5th November 2023, so Wellies, waterproofs and torches are a must.

Our HALLOWEEN maze will be open weekends in October from 11am till 6pm (last entry5pm) up until half term when we will be open from 11am till 8pm (last entry 7pm) and admission is the same price as the summer maze.

Dogs are not allowed in the maize maze but non aggressive dogs are allowed on a lead at the designated dog benches on the edge of the play zone. Please remember to clean up after them and keep them on a lead at ALL times (not every child likes a dog and if your dog is seen to be misbehaving you will be asked to leave).

Make a day of it and bring a picnic to eat in our indoor or outdoor picnic area and enjoy a cold or hot drink, Coldeaton ice cream ( www.coldeatonjerseyicecream ) or confectionary available at our very own snack shack or have some food or an ice cream from one of the catering vans (select days only), or have food at The Boars Head Hotel (serving great food all day).

Why not link your visit with a trip to The Childrens Country House at Sudbury Hall and the Museum of Childhood NT (1 mile) or Tutbury Castle (5.5 miles).
