Why walk into SuperTree Grove when you can slide into it! The flight of steps leading to the Children’s Festival has been transformed into a 20m-long slide with a rainbow arch! It’s free to play, but can get crowded on weekends as it’s a popular attraction and kids can only play one at a time.

Caterpillar Train Ride
