King Arthur's Labyrinth

Essential Snowdonia Adventure Park Information

Q. What is it really like underground?
A. The underground caverns and tunnels have quite dim lighting and there are a few tunnels where you need to duck to walk through. The floor is uneven and can be a little damp in places.

Q. How long does the visit last?
A. The King Arthur's Labyrinth visit lasts 1¼ hours.

Q. What should I wear to visit King Arthur’s Labyrinth?
A. Whatever the temperature aboveground it’s always a cool 8ºC / 46ºF underground. Please wrap up warm and wear sensible footwear as the floor is uneven and damp in places.

Q. How far do you have to walk?
A. There is a short walk to the Labyrinth entrance. When you have sailed into the Labyrinth you then walk about ½ mile along gravel paths around the Labyrinth caverns and tunnels, stopping from time to time to hear the story based on ancient Welsh legends.

Q. Is there a maximum weight limit?
A. Yes, there is a weight limit on the boat, please contact us if you have any concerns.

Q. What is the pace of the walk?
A. The walking pace, which is pre-set, is steady. Please keep up with the people in front of you so that the group keeps together. Please don’t attempt the visit if you cannot walk at a steady pace. If you find that you are struggling to keep up, please tell the Boatman and then walk at the back of the group. The Boatman will ensure that you do not get lost. Slow walkers may miss the beginning of the stories.

Q. Are dogs allowed inside King Arthur's Labyrinth? 🐕
A.
We regret that the underground Labyrinth trip is not suitable for dogs. However, dogs are welcome, on a short lead, into the outside areas of the Corris Craft Centre where we are based. Dogs are also allowed into the Visitor Information Centre, the King Arthur's Labyrinth reception area, our outdoor maze The Welsh Legends Maze, the Corris Cafe and Welsh Deli.  Dogs are allowed into the craft studios (with the exception of the Chocablock chocolate studio) at the discretion of the individual craftspeople.

Q. What about Guide Dogs?
A.
Guide dogs are allowed underground at their owner's risk. Please talk to us beforehand about the conditions that your guide dog will encounter.

Q. What happens in the event of an emergency?
A.In the unlikely event of an emergency exit we will take you out of the mine via the level above which involves climbing up 60+ deep uneven steps.

Q. I’ve seen pictures of visitors wearing helmets, do I have to wear one?
A. Yes, safety legislation insists that you wear a helmet, which will be provided, at all times while underground. The tunnels roofs are uneven and low in places but are generally around 6 ft high. The helmets protect your head from any contact with the roof.

Q. Are unaccompanied children allowed into King Arthur's Labyrinth?
A. Children of 18 years and over are allowed to enter King Arthur's Labyrinth without the supervision of an adult. All children aged under 18 years must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Q.Can I take my camera / phone underground to take photos?
A.
We advise against you taking any expensive equipment underground. The underground Labyrinth is damp and drips of water can seep through the rocks in places. Our insurance does not cover any damage to visitor's personal equipment. Should you choose to take photos, at your own risk, then the use of flash photography or additional lighting is strictly forbidden. Any flashes or additional lighting ruins the underground show in the Labyrinth for other visitors.

Q. Do you offer a Carer's Discount?
A.
Yes, Carers receive a discounted admission. Please choose the Carers ticket and bring proof with you. If proof of you being a Carer is not provided at reception, you may have to pay the full ticket price. 

If you have any questions or concerns which have not been answered here, please contact us.
