The UK’s only Robinson Crusoe Adventure Park
The UK’s only Robinson Crusoe Adventure Park has been awarded ‘Runner Up’ for the Best Visitor Attraction in Fife Award, as part of Kingdom FM’s Local Hero Awards 2012. The Adventure Park at Elie Holiday Park, Shell Bay, reflects the area’s connection with famous Lower Largo sailor, Alexander Selkirk. The impressive structure is surrounded by palm trees and takes the form of a two-masted sailing ship linked to a fantasy desert island. Here children can climb the rigging, scale the poop deck and crawl along the cage to the Island of Despair. Located close to the Fife Coastal Path at Shell Bay, it has already proved to be a hit with families since opening in 2011.

It was Alexander Selkirk’s castaway experiences at the beginning of the 18th Century on an island in the archipelago of Juan Fernandez, off the Chilean coast, that provided the inspiration for Daniel Defoe’s famous book, Robinson Crusoe.
