No. It's a big wooden playground. The crocodile and boat trip are fun but only last 5 mins. Where are you staying in Norfolk?

Depends on the ages of the children I think. Any age from 3-8 I’d say it’s worth it. Any older than that and I would say no. We had a fabulous day there years ago but went back when the children were a bit older and it just wasn’t the same. I think it’s because they’d outgrown some of the magic of it.

Kids are 8 and 11. I've always wanted to take the kids there but since seeing the price (looks like it has gone up massively in the past few years) I'm not so sure.

Are they "young" for their age?


I'd say 8/9 was maximum age

Great for kids under 8 I would say.

It was cute but I felt disappointed for the amount we paid to get in

My kids are those ages and desperate to go back as they loved it when they were younger. But like a pp I don’t think it would be the same even though they are quite young for their ages

We last went when ours were 11,8 and 6 and it was a big hit and entertained the whole family all day.
I think 11 is probably about the limit.

We'd been a few times before that too. They have lots of stuff on in the summer face painting, storytelling, crafts etc and my lot really love the fantasy world plus adventure playground thing.
I would say it's worth it and was a highlight of our Norfolk holidays.

We’ve been a few times, and always really enjoyed it. I always appreciated knowing that there was no extra charge for things like the face painting and crafts activities, and felt things like food and ice cream were reasonably priced.
It really is quite magical, and lovely to be in a more “back to nature” Theme park.

My DS used to love it, we went two or three times around 9, 10, 11 sort of age - usually October half term time when it was done up for Halloween - and he still speaks really fondly of it (he's 18 now). For him it was the good zipwires and stuff, rather than the fae.

Just to add, I always liked the fact the food was reasonably priced and from local suppliers. The sausages were delicious.

It's funny what you miss when they grow up and you don't do it anymore, but Bewilderwood is one of those in our household.

We live in Norfolk so have been a few times and always enjoyed it. DS was 12 last time and still had fun so for a day out you will have a good time. We've been in the rain, the cold and brilliant sunshine

Depends where you are staying really, I wouldn't travel far to get there.

We live locally, we do not go there as the prices are ridiculous for what is a big wooden play area. Not many locals visit anymore as the prices just kept going up and up, it's really just the holiday makers that go there now.

Ah you’ve made me feel guilty for not taking mine again now! We were supposed to go in May but... well...
maybe I’ll try to get there again in the summer holidays.

It depends how you usually live your life.
If you are city based and don't get much outdoor adventure then yes.
