OF COURSE, THERE’S ONLY ONE PLACE TO GO IN DORSET WHEN IT RAINS… DORSET MUD TRAIL


Even more fun in the rain

Dorset Mud Trail is even more fun in the rain. Our muddy, muddy trail is set in the grounds of Dorset Waterpark and features over 30 obstacles to climb on, crawl under,  jump over and swing across. The trail is always incredibly muddy but when it rains it gets even more muddier!

Great fun for all ages

Not only is Dorset Mud Trail even more fun in the rain it is also great fun for all ages. Open to ages under six and over sixty the Mud Trail can be enjoyed by anyone who can run around the trail! It only costs £5 for those under 6, £7 for everyone aged 7 -15 and only £8 for everyone aged over 16. There are discounts available for groups of 20 or more people.

Great facilities

To help you make the most of the day Dorset Mud Trail has lockers, changing rooms and beach style showers to wash off the mud afterwards. We do recommend though that you bring a carrier bag to put your muddy clothes in afterwards and only wear clothes that you don’t mind throwing away.
