Hangloose Eden Project
Ever consider flying over a Biodome? There are several outdoor activities available for you to enjoy at Hangloose Eden Project right now. If you've got the guts to ride Zipwire. I heartily suggest it. What a rush from the zipline! It was beautiful, especially from above, to observe the biodomes. The Giant Swing, on the other hand, gave me some anxiety because it was initially unnerving, but once it made several swings, I felt relieved.
You may see the videos of the entire experience on my YouTube channel.
Rainforest & Mediterranean Biome
As soon as you enter the Eden Project, the garden's symphony of hues, aromas, and sensations welcomes you.The project seeks to inform visitors about the value of biodiversity and sustainability as well as how everyone of us can contribute to the protection of the environment.
The rainforest ecosystem, which spans more than 1.6 acres (6,500 square metres), is one of the largest indoor rainforests in the world. A wide variety of flora, some of which are uncommon or endangered, are present there. The levels of the ecosystem are split to resemble the various strata of a true rainforest. Explore the Rainforest Biome to experience the steamy, tropical beauty that is made possible by the lush vegetation. Explore the Mediterranean Biome, where enticing herbs, colourful citrus trees, and blooming flowers transport you to sweltering settings. A new discovery or sensory thrill is revealed with each step.
A bridge that sprays air as you cross it while in the rainforest was entertaining to go through. However, it takes a while to turn on because you have to wait a few minutes before it turns back on.
You can find this lovely waterfall when you stroll by the bridge. The rainforest biome has a river that flows through it that is nourished by a waterfall located right at the top of the habitat. The waterfall creates dampness as it rushes down a number of rock formations, simulating a real waterfall.
Shop and other things to see
If you visit their website, there are many of additional things to see. Since there are events taking place all year round, they frequently change. The Studio Swine and the Seed will be visible as soon as you walk into one of the centres. A distinctive sculpture that is fantastic for photos. Additionally, the food options are pretty good but expensive, especially when you have paid a hefty price for the entrance. If you eat here, the expense of the food does mount up.
Therefore, whilst I visited I decided just to have a cake and hot chocolate.
Also, you can find plenty of refillable fountains. If you have bought water bottles with you.
Overall, it was enjoyable to see the Eden Project for the first time. The zipline and the Giant Swing were thrilling for me, thus the day was well spent. We then spent the rest of the afternoon seeing the biodomes. Not to mention, while you wander around, there are other interactive seminars taking place throughout day. Although, you can decide whether to stay and take part or leave.
Also, if you are Tesco Clubcard holder. You can bag yourself a discount for the tickets purchased.
