The weather has turned chilly and the July school holidays are upon us! We know how hard it is to keep the kids entertained when it’s rainy and cold outside, so we’ve put together a list of some fantastic (mostly indoor!) activities that will please the whole family.
Magician and Illusionist Andre Vegas is bringing his spellbinding family show to Trustpower Arena these school holidays. Here for one day only, blink and you’ll miss it! This award-winning show includes mind-bending illusions, comedy, and a whole menagerie of animals such as Chihuahuas, rabbits and doves – it’s a guaranteed hit for all ages. Tickets start at $8 and you can grab a family pass for only $32!
The fun at Trustpower Arena doesn’t stop there! Climbing equipment, bouncy castles and a ninja-warrior course will be added to Tumble Time, making it suitable for children up to the age of 13.
Or if you’re looking for a full-day option, we’ve got you covered with a 9am-3pm sports-themed holiday programme. We’ve teamed up with WaiBOP and Tauranga City Basketball to get the kids moving and having fun all day long while you’re at work.
For the water babies of the family, Baywave’s Aqua Play Station will be operating with water slides, water guns, a tipping bucket and all the fountains you can imagine! Perfect for ages 3-12 and free with entry, this one will keep the kids entertained for hours.
You know what they say, safe summer swimmers are made in winter! Keep your Bayswimmer’s skills progressing these school holidays with 15 minute, one on one school holiday lessons run by BaySwim at Baywave. Your child will fast track their water safety skills and can stay and play after their lesson for free!
Got this far and still stuck on what to do with your teenagers? Look no further than BayStation! With four epic activities to choose from, you can book your child and their friends in for a session or two, or even join the fun yourself! They can race Drift Trikes around a purpose-built indoor track, sail the Blokart circuit or start the greatest Laser Tag or Paintball tournament BayStation has ever seen!
