Building Confidence at The Crocky Trail

A grandma has decided to keep an online blog to preserve her memories and adventures with her grandson and we feel privileged that a day out at The Crocky Trail has been included in these memories.

We wanted to share this with you.

We planned to go to the The Crocky Trail,  but I was  put off by a few reviews based on your ages. You’re both too young for a lot of the rides.

I emailed The Crocky Trail for advice to see if an adventurous 2 year old and a timid 4 year old,  would be able to partake in some  of the activities around the course and was reassured that the trail would be fun,  even without the rides.  I completely understand their policy on ages/height restrictions due to  the safety of everyone involved.

Grandad and I bought the restricted tickets @ £9 each and under 5’s are free.

First you both went on the big slide,  and Grandad enjoyed it with you.Then you tried the bouncy circle and both enjoyed running round.   The other rides were a little too busy,  so  we  set off on the trail,  over the first crocodile bridge.

It was the best thing ever,  for building Harry’s confidence,  after he saw you going over the bridges he wanted to try and was so proud of himself,  saying he’s “now brave like Grandad and Jacob”,  which was lovely to hear.  We kept telling him how clever and brave he was.

The trail seems to have a choice of two paths.  One  at the  side of the river or  one that keeps crossing the river by different styles of bridges,   I  couldn’t get photos of all of the bridges and paths as I was too busy trying to keep my balance and watching you two!

At the end of the trail there is a picnic and barbecue area with a few food shops.   Next time I think we  will order one of their barbecue packs.

It  was  a lovely morning and you both enjoyed it with your laughs and giggles on the way round.

Yes we will be going back, and  when you’re both older,  you’ll be able to go on the other rides.

Would I recommend the place for an adventurous 2 yr old or a timid 4 year old.   DEFINITELY ???
The Crocky Trail builds confidence,  and is a great outdoor activity centre.
