Here's another "day out" post! Yesterday we went to this place in North Yorkshire called The Forbidden Corner which is basically like this mad, random adventure park in this great big garden. There are all these underground passages and mazes and sculptures and you have to work out riddles to get round, or you'll very easily get lost! It can be a bit cheesy in places but as long as you're up for a laugh it really is a lot of fun. I used to go quite a lot when I was younger and it was like this sort of hidden gem that only a few people had heard of back then, but since then its got a lot more popular and has won quite a few awards so its been developed a bit and has become really busy!
This is one of the little garden areas that you first arrive in where there are all these different paths leading away to different places, and because of the time of year all the flowers were out and it was so pretty!
Jacket - Vintage
Tee - ASOS
Shorts - Dorothy Perkins
Sandals - Urban Outfitters
This was one of the first weird riddle things you come to. Can you see the creepy little devil fish monster thingy?
One of the paths that leads off from the central garden bit had a little boy statue that squirted water at you when you walked past, so cue me, my mum and my sister trying to run past without getting wet!
Me and my mum:
Urghh my legs look like tree trunks here ha!
Anyway, you've got to cross the stepping stones to get to a passage that goes underground but I'd unfortunately completely forgotten about the fountain thing that sets off right in your face when you step on one of the stones, as you can kinda see in the photo below. It actually took us ages to work out how to get past without getting wet, and in the end me, my mum and my sister had to use umbrellas to protect ourselves while the people behind us got past without any problems because my dad was blocking the sensor!!! And then they were all smug about it as well!
And these are our grumpy faces after getting wet!
So then you go through a sort of Dante's Inferno style corridor and then a stone corridor where there's this huuuge statue that's eyes open and close, which is a bit creepy to say the least!
Then once you've found the right door you're led down another path where you have to go through this creepy face door thing where you come to yet another circular room with loads of doors but this ones smaller and moving as well!
Then once you've found the right door here you can either leave and get out into the open or go even further underground where they've got all these cute little scenarios with model rats and then this little theatre thing where the rats are being chased by a cat! It sounds cheesy but its actually sort of scary haha, especially when you're a kid!
Anyway once we were out from underground we went for another wander round and found a few more daft things, this time some wooden bears playing poker:
