Are you heading to stay with us this Easter?
There are many things going on throughout the county over the Easter holidays so we have summarised a few of our favourites to make things simpler for you!
A golden egg hunt, a fabulous new wobbly rope bridge in the rainforest treetops and a new Australian garden are some of the many delights awaiting visitors to the Eden Project for the Easter holidays. The home of the famous Biomes is going even more ‘egg-streme’ for Easter at Eden this year, with a whole basket full of seasonal delights.
Every day 12 fabulous golden eggs will be hidden across the Eden landscape. Finders will bring them to The Eggschange in return for a delicious prize.
In the main arena, it will be time to roll up, roll up and take part in colourful games of Eggla, Hook-a-duck and Pickled Eggs. There is Egg Scramble where teams will have two minutes to hunt for as many eggs as possible in the crazy Easter garden, full of inflatables, ball pools and more.
In another game called Slide Eggs, visitors will be able to crack an egg and throw it on target as they bounce down inflatable slides.
Nestball players will help chicks and Easter bunnies reach their comfy nests safely – all they need is an accurate throw.
The Mediterranean Biome will host live storytelling, where Eden’s amazing tale-tellers will spin wonderful yarns in the beautiful surroundings of the Citrus Grove.
