Today we visited BeWILDerwood in Norfolk for their half-term Halloween fun. It was the first time for us- we’d had lots of recommendations and read glowing reviews- and the experience didn’t disappoint!
BeWILDerwood is a magical outdoor adventure set in a forest and open between February and October. Based on the characters and stories by Tom Blofeld, the home of the boggles and twiggles is brought to life for kids (and big kids) to explore. A fantasy world of incredible treehouses, zip lines, tunnels, boat rides, den building, slides and inclusive play equipment as well as storytelling and arts and crafts.
Tickets and Pricing
See picture for ticket prices- we paid £19.50 per head (with a free carer ticket) which we thought was good value. It is a full day out and everything is included in the ticket price- no hidden extra costs.
Things to do
There is so much to do at BeWILDerwood and we enjoyed a full day of fun, activity, play and crafts. The themed fantasy realm starts as soon as you queue to get in; follow the Treacherous Trail and take the boat along the Dismal Dyke- look out for Mildred the Crocklebog in the Scaaaaary Lake!
The treehouses are super impressive and there as many adults as children climbing, clambering and sliding amongst the tree tops! As well as the treehouses, we particularly enjoyed the ‘death’ slides, the Muddle Maze and the Sky Maze. It was busy (because it’s half term) but it didn’t feel packed. There is so much to do and people are spread out over a large area so we didn’t have to queue for any play equipment or wait long for a turn on the zip line.
We also enjoyed making a Snagglefang in the Big Hat craft area. This was very well organised and a really fun Halloween activity.
Food and Drink
There are two food outlets, the Cosy Cabin and the Munch Bar. Both are outside cafes with picnic tables- there is no indoor restaurant or covered seating. Lots of people bring a picnic/packed lunch but the food is reasonably priced for this type of attraction.
⭐️We recommend getting to BeWILDerwood early as the car park fills up and you’ll want to spend as much time as you can there (it closes at 5). ⭐️The queue for the BeWILDerBoat gets busy- it’s a short ride and there are three boats but you may have to queue for a while. We went at lunchtime when the storytelling was on and managed two trips without having to queue for very long at all. ⭐️ Wear suitable footwear – it is all forest based and there are lots of uneven paths and tree roots to trip on.
All in all BeWILDerwood, Norfolk was a wonderful day out for all the family. We all enjoyed it and would highly recommend a visit! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
It was awesome! I loved it and my favourite things were the arts and crafts, the zip line and the cool slides! Can we go again tomorrow?😆Arabella, age 8
