Norfolk's newest attraction is being hailed the best in the region. Although it doesnt take a whole day it is fun especially for younger kids. Walk through the trees houses, have a go on the zip wires, use the slides and get involved in the interactive activities such as den building. Watch out for the crocabog on the boat ride!
