CONKERS, Adventures in the forest.
CONKERS, the award winning attraction at The Heart of the National Forest, a unique mix of indoor and outdoor experiences to keep you and your family engaged for hours.
At the Discovery Centre there are four discovery zones designed for children and adults of all ages, over 100 interactive exhibits, the Enchanted Forest Adventure Play area with scary troll, bats and spiders, the interactive forest floor and the simulated Tree Top Walk – a moving bridge through the skies. CONKERS also runs a number of activity programmes during the school holidays.
Enjoy the great outdoors and explore over 120 acres of the picturesque grounds at CONKERS including maturing woodland, lakes and gardens. There are 23 different outdoor activities including the 450 metre barefoot walk. Visitors can walk along sculpture trails or through a wonderful wildflower glade, try out the challenging eighteen stage assault course (for visitors aged 13 and over), climb to the top of the viewing platform for a treetop panorama or play in our tremendous ‘Playdale’ adventure playground. Jump on the train and take a ride between the Discovery and Waterside Centres. A great place for all the family!
There’s a fun packed programme of events from Santa’s Winter Wonderland through to live music in the covered amphitheatre and Halloween and Firework Nights!
