Because there's no map of the park, guests will need to make their way through a giant stone maze, which includes a series of dark tunnels and small holes.

Daytrippers will also find dead-ends that lead to nowhere with puzzles to solve and tricks to avoid.

Several features are new for this year too including the Tower Fort where guests can purchase hot dogs, ice creams, and hot and cold beverages.

There are also wooden huts that can be hired out for birthday parties and special occasions.

Other facilities include a coffee shop and a gift shop.

Entry into the adventure park costs £16.50 for a full-paying adult, and £14.50 for children aged four to 15, while children under four go free.

The Forbidden Corner is open between 10am to 6pm, but will close at dusk in the winter months.
