Totally Roarsome at Mottram Hall, Macclesfield, Until 6 June 2021, from £7.95 - Book now

Deep in secluded Cheshire woodland, the Totally Roarsome extraordinary exploration trail awaits.

In stunning surroundings, you and your fellow explorers will discover more than 100 brightly coloured, oversized models of animals ranging from the prehistoric – in ‘Jurassic Land’, to safari animals and mythical creatures.

The animals appear as if they are roaming free in the woodland and children can ‘stumble upon them’. The sheer scale is jaw-dropping – with many of the dinosaurs towering over even the biggest adults. The addition of well-known characters like Spiderman and Alice in Wonderland means there is something to excite children of all ages. Designed to be both striking and tactile, vibrant coloured surfaces, some metallic, and some almost skin-like entice little ones to get up close and touch.

a stomp around this tranquil woodland to catch a glimpse of its extraordinary visitors is a great way to enjoy the warmer weather and lighter nights.

Totally Attractions are pros at creating popular immersive experiences for families – with a number of other walking trails currently taking place across the North and future events in the making. Totally Storytime, for example, takes up residence at Hazlewood Castle in Leeds in May 2021.

The trail is built around a series of six themed zones and while there is a one-way system, visitors can stop off and weave in and around the sculptures. It’s possible to inject some extra interest into the jaunt with an interactive quiz and treasure hunt map, both of which can be found on the Totally Roarsome North West Facebook page.

The sheer scale is jaw-dropping – with many of the dinosaurs towering over even the biggest adults.

Taking around an hour to complete, with plenty of photo opportunities, this incredibly exciting experience is suitable for little ones who are walking and is, of course, covid secure – with families entering at staggered points along the route. It’s a good idea to pack some tasty snacks and treats to keep tummies topped up with adequate fuel to last the outing.

Running from 12 April until 6 June, a stomp around this tranquil woodland to catch a glimpse of its extraordinary visitors is a great way to enjoy the warmer weather and lighter nights.

All in all, we think Totally Roarsome is sure to delight curious kids big and small.

Do note that due to the uneven nature of the terrain, walking boots or sturdy shoes are essential.
