Three-week Easter eggstravaganza at Eden Project: March 24 to April 15
The Eden Project is launching a new three-week programme of activities for Easter including a giant inflatable challenge, spring maze and golden egg hunt (March 24 to April 15).
There will be a range of outdoor games for the whole family to have a crack at and lots of Easter prizes and treats to enjoy.
How Does Your Garden Grow? is a plant-themed obstacle course in the Stage area where teams have to scramble up all the elements needed to grow a plant.
Participants can slide down giant inflatable slides and rummage through a pond ball pit which sits behind oversized flowers and grass and an enormous greenhouse. They will be looking to find the vital ingredients - soil, seed, rain and sunshine.
There is a chance to explore the whole of the Eden site as the popular Golden Egg Hunt returns.
Elusive eggs will be hidden inside and outside the Biomes in different locations daily and the best egg-hunters will be rewarded with delicious chocolate prizes.
In the Arena there is a chance to get lost in a specially-built spring maze made of hundreds of hay bales.
Visitors can enjoy the first signs of spring on the discovery trail. Among the best plants to see at Eden will be colourful tulips, beautiful jade vine and gorgeous geraniums.
Younger children can enjoy an under-fives soft play area in the Stage, a hoopla game or guess-who activity with animal faces in the Orchard.
There are also board games and a bee buzz challenge where a steady hand is needed to guide the bee on its pollination journey.
In the Mediterranean Biome there will be another chance to see the fun family show Operation Earth exploring Earth’s amazing science and stories in partnership with the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).
During the interactive performance the audience will be invited to become trainee environmental scientists when ‘Earthy’ – a mini version of the planet earth – takes a trip to the doctors.
Shannon Wilby, programme lead for Easter at Eden, said: “We’re really excited to be running a three week-long Easter programme for the first time at Eden with loads of new activities which will be cracking fun for all the family.”
All Easter activities are suitable for all ages and included with admission to Eden. Booking is not required.
