Top Tips For BeWILDerwood
Book online to save yourself some money. You also want to arrive for when the gates open. If you are going during the summer holidays then you might want to take your own picnic as the queues for the food outlets can be long. However, the food is very good and of good value. Make sure you spend the whole day there. The park does tend to quieten down after 4pm so this is the perfect time for any children that are a little less confident or who don’t like busy places. It is also a big park with lots of walking around. Therefore, you may want to bring a pushchair for little legs.
What is BeWILDerwood?
BeWILDERwood is home to Marsh Boggle. He loves nothing better than going boating in the marshes of BeWILDerwood and you can join him in his adventures. Just be careful not to wake Mildred the crocklebog or she may spray you with some water. You will have to be braver than Marsh though if you want to explore scary lake, go climbing in the trees and get lost in the mazes.
What Did The Children Think of BeWILDerwood?
They were enthralled by it all. It is really like a massive playground up in the trees and there is so much to see and do. At the start of the day they were a little unsure of the massive slides but by the end of the day they were whizzing down them again and again and again (you get the picture). We really did spend the whole day there and we only left when we were politely informed that the park was shut. They are both desperate to return next time we visit Little Granny and Pop-pop. I’m quite looking forward to visiting again too as I rather enjoyed re-living my childhood by going down some of the slides. Let’s not mention the fact that I nearly put my back out on one of them as I was going down so fast. Or the fact that I was actually really scared and had to chicken out when Youngest said “again, again, again”.
What Age Is The Perfect Age For BeWILDerwood?
I would say that primary school age is the perfect age and you really get your money’s worth for this age. It is also great for adults too who fancy braving some climbing in the trees and whizzing down some rather scary slides.
Would We Recommend BeWILDerwood?
