What is it? It’s a competitive, interactive journey where you pit your abilities to see, hear, smell, taste and feel against your nearest and dearest, and the best in the animal kingdom, to prove your sensory mettle.
Where is it? Elveden Forest
Who is it for? The young and young-at-heart alike. Our littlest guests will love pulling faces in the misleading mirrors and scrambling through the spider’s web, while our older guests will love…well, doing exactly the same, actually.
Why should I try it? To prove that you’re the best! Plus, you get a one-of-a-kind wooden puzzle and a photo of you and your group to take home with you.
Designed and developed specially for Center Parcs, our brand new Sensory Adventure is the only one of its kind in the UK, and the perfect engaging activity to try on your Summer holiday at Elveden Forest.
Do you have hearing like a bat or the super eyesight of an owl? Step into our magical forest setting to find out. You’ll take on our challenges as your journey through the five Sensory Zones – clamber through webs to test your agility, spot the sneaky animals hiding in the forest, guest the smell and identify the mystery jelly beans to see how you measure up.
Round off your adventure with a trip down the Sensory Walk. Put your faith in one member of your group while the rest of you don blindfolds and find your way across our course with only their directions to help you.
Our really royal throne. The throne and benches at Sensory Adventure are more than meets the eye. They have been made from timber grown at Windsor Castle. Members of the royal family have almost certainly walked among them, perhaps including – when they were little saplings – even Queen Victoria!
Our saved-from-the-scrapheap-mushrooms. The wooden stems for the mushrooms in Sensory Adventure have been made from wood that otherwise would have been burned as brash (or waste) because it is too small for retail firewood.
The ‘lids’ of the mushrooms are made from the giant plastic containers used to transport chemicals. It isn’t possible to recycle these, so if it wasn’t for our mushrooms, they would have ended up in landfill.
To date, over two hundred of these containers have escaped landfill for this reason. Which is just as well, because there’s so much plastic waste already, we hear there’s not mushroom left in landfill…
So whether you have a mates’ break or a UK family holiday coming up at Elveden Forest, be sure to head down to Sensory Adventure. There’s no need to book, just turn up and get stuck in.
