Top kidult things to do

Leave your adulting behind for a while with our pick of 6 fun-filled attractions for those of us that just don’t want to grow up.

1. Get zippy with it
North Wales

Zipworld has 3 locations in North Wales.  Penrhyn Quarry, Bethesda boasts “Velocity” the longest zip in line in Europe and the fastest in the world. Descend head first down the ‘Big Zipper’ with stunning views over the quarry lake where you can reach speeds of over 100 mph. The closest you may come to feeling like you’re flying.

2. Soft Play for Adults –
London, Portsmouth and Swansea

Who said soft play was just for kids? If you’re in the Capital, don’t miss the hilariously named Ballie Ballerson, an adult ball pit cocktail bar boasting over 1 million balls. Flip, flop or roll around in the waist-heigh balls for a good laugh.

At Playzone in Portsmouth and Swansea, there’s special adult only evenings where you can climb, jump, slide and crawl your way around. Great for hen parties and team building activities or just a laugh with your mates.

3. Grownup sleepover

For a truly unique experience why not set up camp inside the Natural History Museum and enjoy a night full of fun, food, science, movies and music.  This sleepover for grownups  includes a 3 course meal, all night movie marathon, gin sampling, a dinosaur-themed games room plus more.

Make a weekend of it and stay in one of our hotels in London 

4. Jump around
London and locations nationwide

Get bouncy at London’s largest trampoline park. There’s 3 floors of trampolines plus climbing walls, a stunt box and trick park, indoor caving and potholing experience, lazer maze and a 30ft drop super slide just for starters. Their After Dark sessions give you and your friends the chance to bounce to the resident DJ’s best tunes. Perfect to let your inner child out!

5. Take it on board

For a slightly more subdued but no less fun throwback to your youth, why not visit a board game cafe? Thirsty Meeples in Oxford has over 2500 games, is open till late every night and is licensed. ‘Game Gurus’ are on hand to help with the setting up of games and explaining the rules and there’s even table service for food and drink so you can get lost in your game. You pay a couvert charge and are then able to borrow and play as many games you as you like.

6. Escape from it all

Get locked in a room for 60 minutes with a group of friends or colleagues, and it’s up to you to break out by solving puzzles and clues. Rooms are themed so you could be looking for your wizard’s wand or getting on your white coat and goggles.
