Adventure Wonderland is a family theme park situated in the village of Hurn, near Bournemouth, United Kingdom. The park offers rides and attractions aimed at families with children up to the age of 12. It draws much of its theme from the novel Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll and Alice, Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts and Mr. Rabbit make appearances throughout the day around the park and in the theatre shows.

Adventure Wonderland also incorporates the aztec adventure play centre Wild Thing which opens as part of the full park during the summer or individually during the winter months.

The park also hosts a number of special character day events as well as seasonal Halloween and Christmas themed events.

Hedge maze[edit]

The park includes an octagonal, 240 x 240 ft beech hedge maze (5,200 bushes) designed by Adrian Fisher (1991).[1] The maze has 1.75 miles of paths. It is claimed to be the third largest maze in the UK. The Maze uses a 'left turn' route to complete.
