With the sun coming out to play, my husband and I decided that it was time for a family outing. With our smartphones and tablets taking over our lives, spending quality time with our family has become more important now than ever before. So, we make a conscious effort to do fun things with our children regularly. Getting out of the house and spending time outside is a great way to get away from all the technology that bogs you down on a daily basis.
We discussed all the different things that we could do, like having a nice, relaxing day at the beach, booking kids party venues and going to the zoo. In the end, both of us agreed that a day at the Adventure Park would be the most fun for the kids and would get us to be physically active, something that both my husband and I are very interested. And when we told the kids about the plan, they did what any eight and ten-year-old would do: squeal with excitement and start talking about how much fun they’ll have and all the things that they’ll get to do at the park. The week went by quickly with the kids counting down the days till they’ll get to go on rides and have fun in the water. On D-day, the kids woke up bright and early, excited to begin their day of fun and frolic. We had booked the tickets online, so when we arrived at Adventure Park, we went straight in.
While the day was supposed to be all about the kids having fun, when we got there, I got just as excited as the kids. After all, who could resist all those rides! Although the water park was our ultimate destination, we decided to start the day with some of the dry rides before venturing onto the wet ones. The kids loved the carousel, excitedly choosing which horse they wanted to ride on. Then all four of us got on the Ferris wheel, an oldie but a goodie, enjoying a great view of the park when it got to the top. For rides where the kids were deemed too young, my husband and I took turns watching the kids while the other person went on the ride. After a couple of other fun dry rides, we decided it was time to move onto the water park to cool down from the hot sun.
Before diving into the water, we had a quick lunch to keep us energised. So, a couple of burgers and fries later—and after slathering on sunscreen—it was time for some aqua fun! With slides and a water play area for kids, time flew as we had our fill of the water. My eight-year-old daughter and I particularly enjoyed floating on the lazy river, chatting about our day and having a real time. It was a great mother-daughter bonding experience for sure. My husband, being a thrill-seeker, went on the steep water slides over and over again, each time claiming that it was the last time only to go over again. My kids loved the smaller slides, and I just enjoyed soaking in the water and watching them have fun. I couldn’t have asked for a better idea for our family outing. The experience was perfect.
After a full day of running around and seeking thrills, of course, the kids were wiped out and tired, but still refused to leave. But once my husband and I assured them that it wasn’t their last time at Adventure Park and that we will return another day again, we finally convinced them to leave and made our way to the car, driving back home with tired, but contented smiles on our faces. It’s a good thing that we got the annual passes because we are going back for sure.
I foresee a lot of trips to Adventure Park shortly. Those memories that we made that day are priceless and will be cherished for a long, long time. I look forward to making more happy memories. Hopefully, our next trip to Adventure Park will be with a lot of friends. I’ve been telling everyone about what a great time we had. So, the next time we plan to go, they’ll probably be keen to join us. And you know what they say, the more, the merrier! Adventure Park is a place that promises endless fun and entertainment for both children and adults. There is something for everyone. It is a fun summer destination, the place to be at when the sun is beating down on us; fun in the water is an awesome way to beat the sun. A day is not enough to get your fill of Adventure Park and all the excitement that it has to offer. Seasonal passes are the way to go for all of us adventure lovers who can’t get enough of the rides. A word of advice to those of you planning a trip to Adventure Park: get there early. By the end of the day, you’re not going to want to leave. So, it’s a good idea to get there early to get your fill of the park. It’s been over a week since we went to the park, but the kids have not stopped talking about how much fun they had. My daughter has been dropping hints about having her birthday party there. And I’m all for it. We could maybe stay there for a weekend to celebrate her birthday and get our fill of all the rides and fun activities. A mini-vacation at a theme park? Sounds like fun for both the parents and the kids! Now that’s what’s called a beneficial, fun time for the entire family! I’m already dreaming of floating in the lazy river again, letting the tube gently take me around while I lounged and baked in the summer sun. Ah, bliss!
