Hats off to Bewilderwood

HOW can you top Bewilderwood? With a hat of course!

Families visiting Bewilderwood this half term will be treated to even more treetop fun and excitement.

New for 2011 is daily storytelling on the park (weather permitting) giving children the chance to dress up as the characters from the Bewilderwood books, bringing the magical tales to life.

Also new is the Big Hat, a giant hiding place with a pointy top that’s filled with lots of handy places to rest tired feet on splishy, splashy wet days.

Aside from the park’s new additions, it remains a plastic-free environment of magical tree houses, zip wires, wobbly bridges, mazes, swing ropes and Toddlewood, three miniature playground areas for toddlers. Visitors can take a boat across the Scaaaaary Lake, try their luck on the Tricky Tunnels or slip and slide down the Slippery Slopes. It’s a full day out, inspired by the characters and adventures from the Bewilderwood books, including Swampy, Mildred the Crocklebog and the Thornyclod Spider. Marketing manager Jo Artherton, said: “It is set to be an exciting year for Bewilderwood. We’re well known as an active, outdoorsy family destination and now we’re in a position to establish the educational side of the park. We want children to be inspired and motivated both physically and mentally, and we aim to further bring to life the magic of Bewilderwood.”
