Bewilderwood, near Horning, is offering children an unusual invitation this Easter: Meet Cedric the Easter bunny.
From Monday until April 22, youngsters visiting the treehouse adventure park will be able to “follow a bunny-themed trail, bound down the bunny tunnel and meet Cedric in the Big Egg”.
They will exit through the hippity hop with an Easter gift and settle down to hear the tales of Cedric and his friends at the story-telling stage.
Children’s author and Bewilderwood creator Tom Blofeld said: “Children love going to see Father Christmas but, to my knowledge, it is the first time they have been offered something similar at Easter.”
He said it was part of the park’s strategy this year to enhance its programme of special events.
Bewilderwood is also investing heavily in improvements around the woodland site and a £120,000 ‘sky maze’ will be ready for visitors by May half-term. The six-metre high 3-D attraction will take families up and down several levels.
Mr Blofeld has also set up a five-strong creative team to improve Boggle and Twiggles theming around the park.
Following record visitor numbers of 167,000 in 2011, he said it was important to invest to maintain progress.
Easter will also see the launch of Mr Blofeld’s latest book, The Pesky Bunnies of Bewilderwood.
