Myself and Hark are planning on taking a jolly to a lovely little place called The Crocky Trail. Based in the village of Waverton, just off the A41 outside Chester, The Crocky Trail is an outdoor adventure trail one mile in length with loads of activities along the way, such as mazes, swings, slides, bridges, tunnels etc, though there is always a way around the more challenging obstacles.

It is effect, the place that H&S (almost) forgot. Although there are some notable H&S edicts now, such as catch nets to stop you falling head first in to muddy ditches, for the best part it is still a place to go and enjoy some fun, with a little bit of risk thrown in to. Just as much fun for the adults as it is for the youngsters.
Crocky Trail is open from 10am until 5pm, though it will be unlikely we would be there all day. It is certainly good for a few hours of fun. Cost is £10 per person. Groups of 10 or more get a discounted rate of £8 per person. Pay on arrival at car park, so there will be some faffing about to ensure we can get the group discount. Have done it in the past, but the chap who mans the car park is a bit of a miserable so and so. :P
It must be noted, that it is possible you could get rather muddy, so wear suitable attire, especially in regards to footwear. Also, possibly something to change in to later as well.
In regards to other entertainment, after the Crocky Trail, there is the option of either Bowling or Laser Quest, and a meal **cough NANDOS cough** at Cheshire Oaks/Coliseum Leisure Park, which is just off J10 of the M53 near to Ellesmere Port. Hence why some other clothing/footwear may come in handy.

It must be noted that you could get injured. The chances are you will at least have one minor injury by the end of it, but nothing that should require anything other than walking it off, or a pain killer or 10. However, feel free to reserve a place at A&E. :P
For anyone who does not have car transport, I will be able to offer a couple of spaces in my car (one, poss 2 spaces are already taken!), and will be able to pick up and drop off from Chester Station, which is the nearest mainline station.
Please post your interest below. Also state if you would be up for attending either bowling or Lazer Quest afterwards, as well as a meal. As both Bowling & Lazer Quest will most likely need to be pre-booked due to it being very busy.
Currently, there is myself, Hark, with DanB and Alex likely to pop along too, and depending on other commitments that weekend, possibly Sam.
*Disclaimer* By attending, you are agreeing to the rules (or lack of them) of the Crocky Trail, and myself & Hark, being as we are, the alleged organisers of this day out, are in no way responsible should you get injured and require a visit to A&E to be fixed
Almost Certain (Need to check my Diary first)
Possible (I really would love to go as it looks absolutely amazing, but...)
