A choice of over 80 adventure activities included in our ticket price.

Escape Cabin

There’s nothing like being locked in a deserted cabin in the woods to get the old adrenaline flowing. Could you puzzle your way out of a locked room in under an hour with only a handful of adventurers to assist you? Codes, puzzles, clues and riddles are piled on to add a new level to your collective panic as you try to complete your mission. Whether you manage to complete the challenge or end up begging for clues right into the closing minutes, this is a satisfying and unpredictably thrilling brain-tease.

Sessions added are:
Sat 11:30 – 1 and 3 – 4:30
Sun 11:30 – 1 and 3 – 4:30

Ice Cream Making

Forget Mr Whippy, it’s all about making your own ice cream from raw natural ingredients. You’ll be taken through the whole process in this hour and a half workshop, walking away with your very own, hand whipped, home (well, woodland) made ice cream. Just make sure you find the Camp Chiefs and offer them a lick.

Extreme Spelling Bee

Are you the kind of person who recoils at a misplaced letter? Can you spell disassociate – and use it in a coherent sentence? In a digital world overpowered by emojis, acronyms and abbreviations, its time to reclaim real words, spelt as they should be. Each round is filled with increasingly difficult words and their meanings until the final last two adventurers standing go head to head in a nail biting spell-off. Add some physical challenges into the mix and you’ve got yourself some very extreme spelling.

Science & Engineering

Sunprinting

Sun printing, also known as cyanotypes and blueprints – they’re a little bit sciency, a little bit arty and come in any colour you want, as long as it’s blue. You’ll mix up potions, collect flora and fauna to print with, design your fabric, parade to the sun then turn your magical creation into drawstring bags for hiding shiny things, or a rather jaunty neckerchief.
