Get lost in one of the magical mazes at the Enchanted Adventure Garden.
There is the original Hedge Maze is a fun challenge with lots of twists and turns. It’s high so you can’t see over the top and don’t know where you are going, often running into dead ends.
The Turf Maze is a great maze for the little ones as you can see them the whole time. You can find the Nessie the Loch Ness Monster.
The Children’s maze has lots of things to do for the little ones who probably won’t want to leave once you get there. You can play a life size game of snakes and ladders, play in the cute fairy garden, the cubby or even the sand pit.
There is no lining up for these, so you can go as you please as many times as you want.
For the thrill seekers (and those over 3 years old) the tube slides are fantastic fun and one of the most popular activities at Enchanted Adventure.
There are different slides to choose from including the straight giants and the big twisters. Kids can have their own small tube if they dare, otherwise share a larger tube with an adult or sibling.
You will need to line up for the tubes so if you do this on entry it’s better because the lines seem to get quite long by the afternoon.
You will also need to carry the tube up the hill to slide down. Older kids can do this themselves, but little ones may need some help. Those under 5 will need to ride with an adult.
The thrill of the slide is super fun, and you will want to do it over and over again. (Or just watch the kids do it from the sidelines!)
The canopy walk is nice and relaxing. There are slow swinging bridges suspended in the treetops. You can just stroll along at your own pace taking in all of the views.
This is a great activity for those who are unable to do the other tree-top activities because it is pram and wheelchair friendly so anyone can do it.
The kids will love the Sky Scramble, the playground in the treetops 10 metres above the ground. There is a variety of obstacles and challenges including bridges, cargo nets, swinging bridges, ladders and more.
Up the top there is a fun ball pit where you can bounce around before sliding down one of the twisty slides.
There is plenty of shaded seating nearby for parents to watch, as it is only suitable for those under 135cm, so no adults allowed.
While all of the activities above are covered in your entry ticket, the tree surfing has an extra cost. There is more than enough to do to keep your family busy for the day if you don’t decide to participate, but it is lots of fun and worth the extra.
Nippers Tree Surfing for Kids
Suitable for kids from 4-12 years old and those under 135cms the Nippers Tree Surfing is a great challenge.
With three levels there are different obstacles to tackle from climbing, swinging, jumping and a zipline.
For the younger ones who are 4-5 years old, they will need an assisting adult, those 6 and over can go alone.
Grand Tree Surfing
For adults and older kids over 135 why not take the Grand Tree Surfing challenge. By no means is this an easy feat.
There are 5 levels with over 50 aerial obstacles although you don’t need to do them all if you don’t want to or don’t feel that you can.
From rock climbing, to balancing, swinging, jumping, and ziplining, you will need a moderate fitness level for this one.
There are so many beautiful spots to sit down and have a picnic at the Enchanted Adventure Garden. Plenty of shady spots and trees to sit under, and also picnic tables around too.
Bring along some lunch with you, or purchase from the onsite café and eat with a stunning view.
