This is a weekly Linky to share your posts on family days out with children.
I didn’t to expect to see a slide like this when we went on a family day out in East Sussex this week. Knockhatch Adventure Park is near Eastbourne and the kids (my youngest and one of his cousins) absolutely loved it. Besides the standard adventure park selection of farm animals, tractor rides and adventure playgrounds there are some more unusual things to do at Knockhatch. The boys couldn’t believe how big this Wave Runner slide is – my youngest reckons it’s longer than Thorpe Park’s Depth Charge slide.
There were hardly any queues, so the boys went on the slide a few times before building up the courage to try the Demon Drop Slide nearby. This is a vertical slide which levels out at the bottom and is so scary that it carries a panic warning:
There are also two vast and bouncy jumping pillows for kids to wear themselves out on which ours kept on going back to:
The boys enjoyed rowing their mothers and grandmother round and round in tight circles on the boating lake and they only steered the boat into the brambles on the bank a couple of times. The runaway train simulator was very entertaining and our crazy golf game was fun – I volunteered to keep score while my Mum and my sister played the boys. The War Zone sits rather incongruously between the sandpit and the paddling pool and is the site for games I don’t like, where children are given laser guns to shoot at each other while running in and out of old farm buildings. The boys loved this, obviously.
Family travel lowdown: This was a really fun day out and I’d definitely go back. We paid £31.99 for a family ticket (2 adults, 2 kids) plus £6.99 for my pensioner Mum and £2.50 for each of the boys to play the laser game. Knockhatch Adventure Park.
