Review by Lou @ Toddle About HQ.
We were very lucky to be invited to Warwick Castle to get a sneak peak at the new Zog Playland before it officially opened on Sunday 3rd April.
We are huge fans of Warwick Castle and was very excited to go along and explore this new addition and we were not disappointed.
As soon as you enter the castle, in just a few steps you step straight into Zog Playland, Zog is inspired by the books written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. After entering the Playland you can roam and discover Zog’s realm which you can:
• Fly on the Dragon Wing Zip Wire
• Climb through Princess Pearl’s Tower
• Slide down Zog’s tail slide
• Discover the Dragon Slides and Swings
• Get hands-on with interactive sand play
• Crawl through Adventure Tunnels and much more!
It is laid out really nicely and with plenty of space and you can also find a couple of places to sit down and there is also a little cabin where you can grab yourself light refreshments.
Once you have exhausted the play area then the ‘Zog’ fun doesn’t end there, as you can take part in the “Zog Quest for the Golden Star” interactive trail, which you can enjoy on your way round the rest of the castle grounds, our son really enjoyed the different activities and completing his Dragon School Stamp Activity Card.
The interactive activity trail teaches all budding little dragons in learning the skills that they need know in order to become a fully-fledged dragon including flying, roaring and breathing fire and once your children have completed each section, they can stamp their card which when complete, they can then gain their Golden Star presented to Sir Gadabout after taking part in his Dragon at the end of the trail.
Our son thoroughly enjoyed every part of the Zog experience from the Playland to all the interactive activities.
Once we had completed all the Zog activities, we then had a proper look around the castle grounds and enjoyed taking part in the “Horrible Histories Maze”, watching “The Bowman” and learning more about how they worked and what they had to do in the olden days and also watching “The Falconers Quest” impressive bird display.
There is something for everyone at Warwick Castle including The Dungeons*, The Princess Tower, Great Hall and State Rooms and The Trebuchet to name just a few and you will realise that your day will be jam packed full of fun and entertainment that will leave you smiling from ear to ear.
