The O'Hallorans

The OHallorans

We’re made up of Lyndsey, John and Erin, who all love a new adventure. We try to get away as much as possible, especially during school holidays and variety is a must for us. That means staying anywhere from a luxury hotel to a hostel and it’s not often we go to the same place twice.

What is there to do at BeWILDerwood Norfolk?

As a magical, imaginative adventure park set in natural surroundings, BeWILDerwood is a brilliant day out for the whole family. It’s quite a large woodland area to cover in a day so pick up a map when you arrive. There are also maps dotted around BeWILDerwood in case you misplace yours. Each attraction is clearly labelled on the map and it’s really quite easy to navigate. We tend to do one side of the park and work our way across over the duration of the day. This really saves going back and forth and helps to make sure you don’t miss any of the play areas. These include: 

  • Slippery Slopes
  • The Broken Bridge
  • Wobbly Wires
  • Sky Maze
  • Boggle Village
  • TipToe Valley
  • The Towering Treetop Tangles
  • Scaaaaary Lake
  • Tricky Tunnels
  • Treacherous Trail
  • Toddlewood on the Hill
  • Twiggle Whizzers
  • Den building
Bewilderwood's Sky Maze

There’s a real mix of things to do here, including an adventure world of rope bridges, giant slippery slides and extra-long zip wires. Grown ups are encouraged to play as well, and the equipment is really well designed. Not only can you climb high up but you can walk down the peaceful pathways and attempt the marvellous muddle maze! Some areas are trickier than others, such as the Sky Maze (which we get lost in every single time). Something a little bit different is the storytelling shows on the storytelling stage and these happen roughly every hour throughout the day. You can also get hints of intriguing characters during the meet and greet sessions! Don’t forget to take a photo!

Storytelling at Bewilderwood Norfolk

The great thing here is that it’s a great place for adventurous creatures to try something new or go on their favourite thing over and over again. Erin spends ages on the zip-wires and loves to go down the slides but spends less time in the mazes. Each time we go she discovers something new and tries to do something a little bit different. There are some areas for smaller children too so everyone can be involved in some way.

Don’t forget the boat ride!

One of our favourite things to do is to go on a boat trip. The lazy boat ride take you on a round journey along the Scaaaary Lake. You can learn all about the adventures of Swampy the Marsh Boggle. Make sure you say a big hello to Mildred the Crocklebog on your journey! The queue for the Bewilderboat can get really long during weekends and school holidays so it’s a good idea to do this first.

Food and drinks

When you get hungry, head to either the Cosy Cabin or Munch Bar for some delicious food. You’ll find a range of hot and cold food on offer, from hot dogs, jacket potatoes, sandwiches and sausage rolls. There’s also snacks and ice creams on offer, depending on what you fancy. There are options for vegan and vegetarian crocklebogs too!

Prices are reasonable for somewhere like this and I like that the menu is a bit different. You won’t find any junk food chicken nuggets and chips here!

If you want to take your own food with you, you’re more than welcome to take a picnic. There are lots of picnic tables dotted around for somewhere to sit.

Helpful list of things to take with you

  • A waterproof coat/ jacket
  • Wellies
  • Wear sensible shoes
  • Wear or pack layers – BeWILDerwood is set in the trees, and temperatures can change throughout the day
  • Keep a change of clothes in the car… just in case!

Visit the gift shop

Before you leave, make sure you visit the Bizarre Bazaar. Here, you’ll be able to buy BeWILDerwood themed merchendise, including the magical series of children’s books by Tom Blofeld, toys and BeWILDerwood themed merchandise. 

How long should you plan to stay at BeWILDerwood?

There’s so much to do at BeWILDerwood. I would advise you to plan to spend the whole day there if possible, especially if it is your first time. This will allow you to take your time and experience all that the magical world of BeWILDerwood has to offer. You’ll also get the most value for your money with the ticket price as well this way.
