The ‘biggest play structure on earth’ is coming to the UK next year – and it celebrates Christmas all year round. The £15 million project, named ‘Lilidorei’, is billed as a fairytale wonderland featuring elves, dwarves, pixies and fairies.
Forty acres of land in the Alnwick Garden, Northumberland, will be transformed into a fairyland of grottoes and goblin lairs featuring climbing walls, mazes, zip lines, giant slides and more. Food and drink (including hot chocolate) will also be available.
The attraction is the brainchild of Jane Percy, the Duchess of Northumberland, who helped to transform the Alnwick Garden into a location used in the Harry Potter films. Lilidorei has aims to attract around 280,000 visitors to Northumberland each year, and will be open 365 days a year.
The park is due to launch in spring next year. While day prices haven’t yet been revealed, parents will be able to buy an annual pass for £75. There will also be ‘free Fridays’, allowing primary school children to visit free of charge during term time and holidays.
