The Lost Castle Adventure Play – Lowther Castle Phase Two

Lowther Castle Extension

The adventure play at Lowther Castle was an immediate success and saw a huge increase in both visitor numbers and turnover for Lowther Castle. According to Jim Lowther, it gave him the confidence to go forward and invest further in the family play. This play extension had been planned from the outset but wasn’t due to be started until later in 2017, but we were back on site, soon after the first summer period ended.

Our build team delivered a huge new 14 slide, which was quite a feat for them to install by hand. They also built more ground play, an amazing Faraway Party treehouse and lots of additional areas to engage and relax. We wrote about the initial work on site here and there are some images of the play coming to life.
