Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens is featuring the Labyrinth Challenge in an exciting four-day festival of summer fun. It will run from 17th to 20th August 2023 and boasts one of the most impressive inflatable obstacle courses in the world, measuring over 1,000 feet in length.
The Labyrinth Challenge is one of the UK’s largest inflatable obstacle courses and is divided into five different challenge zones, including the Lava, Jungle, Toxic, Combat, and Ocean zones. With 34 continuous and unique challenges and obstacles, thrill-seekers will be able to release their inner child and experience the ultimate summer adventure, says Adam Streeter, estate general manager.
From jump-offs and hurdles to biff n’ bash sections, balance beams, giant balls, corkscrews, and more, there will be no shortage of excitement as participants dodge swinging blades, leapfrog over hurdles, and race to the finishing line.
Whilst the main Labyrinth Challenge is height-restricted to those over 1.2m, there is also a Mini Labyrinth Challenge that is suitable for smaller children. This 200ft inflatable obstacle course brings storybook and video game adventures to life, creating a crazy fantasy world of bouncy fun with four zones, including Arctic, Jurassic, Egyptian and Jungle. Adult spectators can get 50% off garden entry when booking the Mini Labyrinth Challenge.
To ensure that everyone can enjoy The Labyrinth Challenge, visitors can book SEN-based sessions on 17th August; they offer a quieter setting with a reduced volume of crowds, making it a safe and comfortable environment for all.
In addition to the obstacle course, visitors will have all-day entry to Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens, which spans 240 acres of woodland gardens. They can explore the estate, where wallabies and deer roam free, visit the famous magical world in miniature at the dolls’ house museum and gift shops, and check out the plant nursery centre.
The gardens feature on-site cafés and there will be a selection of local food vendors for the Labyrinth Challenge to keep everyone energised. Estate favourite Garlic Wood will be serving a choice of breakfast baps, burgers, hot dogs and much more to tickle the taste buds. Sugo82 offers a selection of pasta, tiramisu, arancini and cannolis; while the team from Leonati’s are all on board to provide a range of crispy, thin-based pizzas with a wide choice of fresh toppings.
“We are delighted to host The Labyrinth Challenge at Leonardslee and for visitors to experience the thrills of the largest inflatable obstacle course in the UK. It’s going to be a summer to remember!” says Adam Streeter.
Whether you’re looking for a fun summer holiday outing or a unique children’s party, the Labyrinth Challenge is the answer, he says. Visitors can book a one-hour time slot for access to the course as many times as they like. Ticket prices start from £10.50 for children, and Leonardslee members benefit from a 50% discount.
