Outdoor Fun

Outdoors at the National Forest Adventure Farm you will find a Funfield packed with “have-a-go” activities including Farmula 1 pedal go-karts, sand pit, mini assault course and Farmyard Crazy Golf. You can test your football skills with ‘Beat the Goalie’, bounce on the giant jumping pillows and dig for fossils in our Jurassic Canyon sand play area. If you’re prepared to get wet (very wet), take on the challenge of the Water Splash-Out*. There is also an under 7’s play area where little ones can explore ‘The Brig’ pirate ship play equipment and a huge JCB inflatable bouncy slide.

If you love diggers, our JCB Big Dig Zone is just for you. Jump behind the wheel of your very own ride on digger, help to excavate the Adventure Farm’s quarry sand pit and take on the traversing wall.

In the Courtyard area, show off your driving ability on the mini quad bikes (£1 a go).

A visit to the Farm is not complete without a Tractor and Trailer ride. Our Farmyard Safari takes you on a tour of animal paddocks. Try to find all the scarecrows as you travel round!  Also have a fun family ride on the Barrel Stampede.

In the summer, try and conquer our huge 10 acre Maize Maze. Click here to find out more. 

Farmula 1 Pedal Go-Karts

Take on our new pedal Go-Kart track, Farmula 1. Put your foot down on the pedals and challenge your friends round the twisting tarmac course, complete with traffic lights. For shorter legs, we have smaller junior Go-Karts as well.

Jurassic Canyon

Dig for dinosaur bones. Use a spade and a brush to revel the huge velociraptor fossil. Climb in an under the rock tunnel. Sort and transport sand in the using shoots, slide and pulleys!

JCB Big Dig Zone
