Bewilderwood, Hoveton, Saturday 1st April – Monday 17th April 2023
For the story- lovers and tree- climbers amongst us, Bewilderwood is the place to be, and this Easter – the Pesky Bunnies are back and causing havoc around the park!
Children can disguise themselves as a pesky bunny at the face painting station and craft their own bunny ears at the craft tent– then set off an adventure to hunt down the troublesome bunnies, all whilst following the story and using clues hidden around the woods. Once all the bunnies have been found, children will be rewarded with a special badge.
Alongside the eggs-tra Easter fun, children can also take advantage of all the many treetop courses, slides and boat rides around the park as much as they would like. When you’re ready to replenish your energy, there are many food and drinks stalls dotted around the park, or you can bring a picnic and settle into one of the many picnic tables available.
Price: Starting from £19.50- £21.50 (height depending)
