Fairy Tale Forest

Come untangle the mystery of Rapunzel and help her true love rescue her from the clutches of her evil enchantress stepmother! Follow the paths within our enchanted secret forest and interact with characters along the way. Your help will be vital in ensuring Rapunzel’s dreams come true and both our morning and afternoon time slots conclude in a Fairy tale ending!


In addition make time to add a spark of magic to your day. Learn the ancient arts of potion making and alchemy as apprentices to the wild magician of the woods! This activity will run every half an hour from 11am – 3pm with the exception of 12.30pm.
