We’re rapidly heading towards the summer holidays and the dreaded six weeks of ‘keeping children occupied’ before they get bored.
If you’re heading to North Wales for a summer holiday, or a day trip and you want to keep the kids entertained, what better way than a fun fair or park?
Although you’re more likely to find wide open spaces to run around in as we’re well located for the beach and the countryside, there are a few funfairs and parks around the area to get some thrills and candyfloss:
Knightly’s Fun Park
Knightly’s Fun Park is very much a traditional style fun fair: With an arcade stuffed full of the much loved games and machines, a fun fair with thrill rides such as rollercoasters and go karts, and the more sedate family rides like the tea cups.
There’s fun for all the family. You don’t pay entry to the funfair; instead you pay per ride
Green Wood Forest Park
You do pay a standard entry price to Greenwood Forest Park but then everything is included after that. This is a fun park with a difference; it’s got an eco twist, including a solar powered water ride.
You’ll also find moonkarts, large and small sled runs so you can let ALL the kids have a go as well as Treetop Towers which is a woodland walkway full of tube slides. There’s even the Enchanted WoodBarn for the rainy days, which has a separate area for the tiny tots.
A day with a difference, with lots of fun and things to do.
A traditional seaside fun fair Funland Pwllheli operates a ghost train, some dodgems, a bouncy castle, bumper boats and an arcade.
You’re more likely to visit whilst you’re heading to the beach rather than as a separate day out, but it’s a great additional thing to do on your visit.
Not so much a traditional fun fair, more an activity centre packed full of action. You can choose from indoor activities when it’s raining such as soft play and ten pin bowling, but when you can get outside Glasfryn Parc really comes into its own.
There’s a huge range of activities to choose from including archery, go karting, segway, crazy golf, quad biking and clay pigeon shooting.
Alongside the activities you’ll find on dry land you can also undertake a range of water sports including kayaking, cable wakeboarding, paddle boarding and for the more serene experience; coarse fishing.
It’s a fantastic place for older kids to burn energy but they’ve thought about younger kids with the soft play. Well behaved dogs on leads are also welcome too.
