CONKERS, the award winning attraction in The Heart of The National Forest, is a unique mix of indoor and outdoor experiences to keep you and your family engaged for hours - whatever the weather.

Indoors there are four discovery zones designed for children and adults of all ages, which includes the Enchanted Forest Adventure Play area, a simulated Tree Top Walk with a moving bridge and journey through the skies to the caves beyond.

Outdoors, there are 120 acres of woodland and lakes with the new Conkerchoo II train linking the Discovery and Waterside Centres.

Experience the 450 metre Barefoot Walk, or take the challenge and complete the 18 stage assault course, then explore the Playdale adventure play zone.
