Switch on to wildlife and join ‘Hootz’ the owl and journey your way around his magical WILD world for a great day of adventure play…nature’s way!

Enjoy an epic indoor adventure and engage with the natural world whatever as you journey your way across rope bridges, scuttle up ginormous tree towers and race your way down winding slides as Hootz welcomes you to his magical wild world! In fine weather, you can swoop like a falcon, scramble like a spider and dig like a mole as you discover underground burrows, zip wires, a shallow stream to splash through and an assault course in the trees with adventure play, nature’s way in WildRootz. Become a bug detective on the Bug Walk, find the camouflaged mirrors and build a den! Voted Norfolk’s Best Large Attraction 2014 and 2015, Pensthorpe Natural Park is a fabulous day out for the whole family.
