Being summer we can't look past Splash Planet in Hastings! Open every day this is a seriously fun way to beat the summer heat! With a wide range of rides such as the sky castle screamer, the double dipper and the never ending river you can also enjoy bumper boats, kayaks and the pirate run obstacle course!
Staying with the theme of keeping cool in the summer heat you could take a trip to the quirky theme park The Waterworks in Coromandel Town. With features such as the water clock, the music box, Mr Bones and water cannons the kids (and adults) are guaranteed lots of fun. Dog friendly and with BBQ facilities it's great for a day out ...
For those who love a bit of adventure why not head along to Action World in Paihia with Tarzan swings, flying trapeze and jousting pole this is just a small part of the great activities all safe with a specially developed airbag landing system! There's also bungy jumping, a waterslide, high wire and lots more - let the kids feel as if they are part of the circus!!
Another great spot for family entertainment and activities is to visit Silverdale Adventure Park in North Auckland. Great fun including a downhill luge, dual zipline, tube slide and opportunities for off road experiences. There's also plenty for the little ones including the Cosmic Playzone and Mini Moon Buggies!
If you like to be aMAZEd why not check out the Odyssey Sensory Maze with locations in both Auckland and Queenstown where you try to find your way out of the maze whilst experiencing challenging spaces, quirky physical obstacles, illusions, lighting effects, scents, sound effects and strange sensations!!
