Is this a free attraction?

It sure is! Entry to the Ginger Factory is free and The Gruffalo Trail is located in our rainforest.

The Gruffalo will be calling the Ginger Factory his home for a whole year!

– An error message will appear when you attempt to use the app

– Click ‘close’ – this will close the app

– Reopen the app – this will give you another opportunity to give approval to allowing camera access so the app can work correctly

Photos are saved directly to your personal camera roll / photos outside of the app – note that this is dependent on whether you gave permission for the app to access your camera/photos (if you didn’t, follow the steps above)

On the app, you can only preview the last photo you took, you do not have the ability to swipe through all images captured.

Depending on the device, follow the steps below to view all photos:

– Android: Open your photo app and click on ‘Albums’ different to IPhone, photos are saved in a generated album under your ‘album file’ called ‘the Gruffalo trail ‘

Once the trail has been completed, there is a ‘restart’ button and a ‘camera’ button on the final complete screen, which allows you to go back and take more pictures.

You can take as many images as you like and complete The Gruffalo Trail as many times you wish – there is no limit!
