We all love to have quality family fun every now and then, right? But it can’t just be me who decides, more often than not, to rather stay at home, “because what will we do with our little ones…”
I’m here to remind you of a couple of great spots for family fun in Cape Town.
#1 | The Playstation | Tokai
Even adults will find this exciting adventure park hard to resist. The PlayStation has been designed to promote play – isn’t this what childhood should be all about? From its unique, custom-built maze, to 7m high climbing wall, there is something for everyone. Plus, parents can enjoy a cup of coffee in peace knowing that their little ones are being looked after by experienced staff. #Winning.
#2 | Rhebokskloof | Paarl
Indulge in some wine tasting while your children have fun in the beautiful Rhebokskloof gardens, complete with free pony rides and a jumping castle in summer. Enjoy a delicious picnic on the rolling lawns, or treat yourself to a decadent lunch at the restaurant. If you’re looking for a day of family fun in Cape Town, this is the place to visit.
#3 | Surf Emporium | Muizenberg
Fancy dipping your toes in the ocean and showing your kids how to hang ten? You can book a surfing lesson at the Surf Emporium for an afternoon of family fun. Here, you can rent all the necessary equipment and even have an experienced instructor show you how to catch a wave.
#4 | RUSH | Claremont
Bounce your worries away at this indoor trampoline park! The whole family can join in on the excitement. If you prefer, you can sit back and relax with a cup of coffee and free WiFi (#WinningAgain) while your kids jump around in the cube foam pit or try their hand at the hydraulic slam dunk basketball hoops.
#5 | The Cape Wheel | V &A Waterfront
See Cape Town from above! This giant wheel offers sweeping views of the Mother City as you rise 40m above the ground in an air-conditioned cabin. While enjoying the four revolutions, you can turn your journey into an educational and cultural experience for your child by trying to spot all the famous landmarks. And, bonus, you can wait downstairs at one of the many coffee shops while sipping on a cuppa.
Lastly, always remember that babysitters are there to ensure that you, and your better half, get a chance for some well-deserved alone time. Need tips? Check this article out for some great ideas for date night.
