They will then be given a special comic book which features games and an exciting discovery trail, allowing them to explore the hotel. Puzzles and stories will guide them through the large hotel. This will allow them to find their own way around, with the playroom as their base and the swimming pool where they can have fun in the water. Outside, the route goes even further. From the hotel you can walk directly into the Speulderbos, a large and ancient forest which has mysterious dancing trees.
