Little T the Thrill Seeker

I’m a big wuss.  I don’t like adventure parks and while there are a number of things I still seek in life, thrill and adrenaline rush isn’t on my list.  I’m not proud of this, but neither am I embarrassed about it.  I’ll happily watch and take photos of everyone having fun.  I’m glad though, that little T isn’t a wuss like me.

It was the birthday of little F’s dad (T’s best-friend), and he wanted to celebrate it at Crealy Adventure Park here in Cornwall, so off we went to enjoy the day with them.

As you can see from the photo above, the day didn’t start out well.  It was actually raining, but it stopped as we arrived at Crealy’s, though the rain clouds did hover above us all through out the day.

First stop was the enormous sand pit, complete with buckets, spades and a child-size tractor.

And that was only the beginning.  Next the little ones moved on to the mini-race-track.

We had a bit of  melt-down here when the ride was over.  She wanted to ride it again and again and again, not knowing that there were many other rides she still could have.  It took awhile to convince her that this wasn’t the last.

And here are the best-friends enjoying another ride on a tractor.  Aren’t they the cutest?  I love this photo.

This was little T’s first ever roller-coaster.  I was half-expecting her to be scared, but she actually giggled the whole time.  I could even hear her chortling away from where I stood.

Tea anyone?  I think she was actually bored with this ride.  Her expression read:  Is that it?

And here’s my little adventure-seeker.  You’d have to pay me millions to get on this one!  Yes, shame on me.

This she absolutely loved.  She and her dad went on it for more than a couple of times.  We actually had to convince her to try the next!

Which was another wet-ride, needless to say, she also loved this one.

To calm these little adrenaline junkies, we took them to the petting centre where they had some queit time just stroking the rabbits.

And then it was time to run around like loonies again.

This little one fears nothing!

They were like the energiser rabbits, going on and on and on and on.

I guess you could say their motto is:  Play till you drop.

And that’s what they did!

What about you?

Are you an adrenaline junkie?

If you live in Cornwall or visiting and looking for a place to take your little ones for some adventure, fun and play.  Take them to Crealy Park!  It’s a lovely place with lots of age-appropriate rides!  They also have a mini zoo and petting area and if it rains they have an indoor castle where the kids can play to their hearts content.

    Looks fun! We recently went to the Devon Crealy and had a great time too #CountryKids

    • Is it as big as the one in Cornwall? I bet your boys loved it too 🙂

    Shes so fearless! My son loves falling from high slides but we (by that I mean he & his Dad =P) havent tried water slides yet! I am sure he will like it as well. =) #countrykids

    • I bet he’ll love it too and I have a feeling, so will your hubby! 😉

  3. Jenny @ The Brick Castle

    Crealy Park looks great! I love the look of those slides – they’re fantastic fun however old you are 😀

    • The slides were great! Ermmm… Looked great to me, who was watching from the sidelines. But the kids and the dads thoroughly enjoyed themselves 🙂

    Looks like a fab day out and Little T looks to be loving it all! My kids love theme parks, too, and we’re fortunate to live right near Thomasland, so we’re there quite a lot. My daughter loves roller coasters the most, and the faster the better for her! I used to like them, too, but I suffer from motion sickness now, so rides aren’t great for me! #CountryKids

    • Wow, Thomasland! Little T will love that. She used to love Thomas, still plays with her train tracks sometimes, but not all the time anymore.

  5. I’m with you. I’ll just watch the kiddos from the sidelines…with you! 🙂

    You can see in the photos what a ball Little T is having! Great place to know about in Cornwall. I was actually laughing as I read this as my hubbie loves the adrenaline rides which I don’t – and completely avoid – despite being a crazy scuba diver, off piste skier and former war zone journalist!

    • War zone journalist? I’m really, really impressed Kris 🙂 x

    Looks brilliant, she is fearless, which is wonderful. We went to an amazing theme park, aimed at kids, last year; the boys absolutely loved it… Have to admit I’m not a huge fan of rides, but the kids sized ones were manageable 🙂

    Wow, Crealy Park looks amazing. Will have to remember this when we come to Cornwall this October! I’m an adrenaline junkie, so will be right up there on the rides! My monkey might be too small, though, so I’ll have to take his place 🙂 #countrykids

    • Actually if you’re an adrenaline junkie, you might find the rides too tame for you 😉 The rides are tame enough even for your little monkey, so I’m sure he’ll love it too. So yes, visiting Crealy is a must when you guys come down in October 🙂

  9. We are a theme park family and since our girl, RJ was 18 months she has been going on the rides. We are hoping to go down to Crealys Cornwall next year camping
