From underground labyrinths to gazing at the stars, these autumnal activities are a great way to get the kids out and about
Combine adrenaline thrills with autumn colour as you bounce, swing and zipline through the treetops at Zip World Fforest, which offers six “adventures” in woodland in the Conwy valley. The Treetop Nets, Europe’s longest net walkway, and the Fforest Coaster are gentlest. Older children may prefer Plummet 2, which opens on 19 October, where they will be dropped 30 metres through a trapdoor, for a near free-fall experience, courtesy of two powerfans. And if that isn’t scary enough, a Ffear Fforest Night Pass (20 Oct–4 Nov) gives evening entry to the park and access to the tree nets and Fforest Coaster, with lots of Halloween frights and extras.
• Adventures from £10; Plummet 2 £15pp, or £20 for two; Ffear Fforest Night Pass £25 in advance; zipworld.co.uk
