Exciting News: We are a Weymouth Adventure Park Ambassador!

Well, fun news for Little Steps that is, especially for T.

I can’t wait till summer is here, because of the house move, we haven’t managed to plan a summer holiday, whether abroad or just in Blightey.  We haven’t even had the chance to crunch our numbers yet and there are still new things to be bought like a new table and chairs for the conservatory, somehow a holiday abroad seems a bit too much for us right now.  I’m fine with that though, especially since we ahem I repeat have been chosen to be a Weymouth Adventure Park Ambassador, suddenly the summer spent here doesn’t seem like such a bad idea after all.  I foresee lots of road trips to Weymouth come the summer months.

What awaits us in Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park?  Loads apparently!  And since we’ve never been there we are, as T would say “Oh my God, we are so excited!”  (You have to say this in a little girl’s high-pitched voice).

We originally planned to go this week for T’s half-term break, as mentioned already, the husband is just way too busy to be able to plan a family outing, even if it’s just a day’s break.  Never mind, summer is definitely just around the corner and his load will dwindle away for the summer break.

What to See and Do at the Weymouth Sea-Life Adventure Park

Creatures

They have over 1000 different kinds of marine creatures, from Black Tipped Sharks, crocodiles, turtles, octopus, otters, penguins, just to name a few.  Imagine that, we can actually spend just the whole day going from one animal to another.  How cool is that?

Jurassic Skyline

I may be afraid of heights but I might just be able to conquer my fear.  I love the the idea of towering over the magnificent Jurassic landscape, not to mention a glimpse of the English channel from way up there, especially since it’s supposed to be taller than the Tower of London or the Taj Mahal.

Harbourside

This is the oldest attraction at the adventure park and houses native species to the UK including the endangered Undulate Ray and the non-threatening Blonde Ray.  I don’t know about you, every time I think of a ray, what comes to mind is that famous Australian Crocodile hunter who was killed by a sting-ray.  Remind me not to mention this to T, when we’re at the Harbourside looking at rays.

Pirate Adventure Mini Golf

For some families a holiday or break isn’t complete without a game of min-golf.  Not for us though, although to be fair, I think once little T sees how fun the Pirate Swashbuckle Mini Golf looks like, she might want to have a go.

Can’t wait to share all the fun with you guys when we visit the Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park!  And it won’t just be once 😉

What about you?

Have you visited before?

We are so excited to go!

Any exciting plans for the summer?

Do share.

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.
