Last weekend we spent the day at Sundown Adventureland, a unique theme park which has been designed exclusively for children under 10 years old. It's a lovely place to spend a day if you have young children.... you get all the fun of a regular theme park but without the worry of height restrictions, long queues or scary rides.
The whole park is crammed full of rides, playgrounds, soft play centres, giant sandpits and so much more. Sundown is wonderful for entertaining those little imaginations, there's something unexpected around every corner!
Miss E loved her visit last year but I feel that she got so much more out of it this time. Able to fully interact with everything on offer, she had a blast 'reading the map' and deciding where our next port of call would be. She particularly enjoyed the actual rides this year, something she wasn't as keen on last time.
We took a fair few trips on 'Santa's Sleigh Ride' which felt completely weird on the hottest day of the year so far. Tinsel, jingle bells and Christmas trees in May.... anyone?! I do think it is one of the best attractions there though and the short queues meant that we could justify multiple rides! Always good!
Fort Apache is the most recent addition to Sundown and we spent a good half an hour here exploring before heading to the gift shop on the way out. We liked this new area which I feel has been very nicely designed though it's probably an area for older children as some of the drops are blummin' high and quite dangerous looking. Even so, Miss E loved the bumpy slides and the fact that there is plenty of space to run around.
As with our last visit, we took a picnic with us. There are plenty of spots to eat your lunch including grassy spaces underneath pink blossom trees and even an undercover picnic area which is ideal in bad weather.
We had a lovely day out and I am sure that it won't be long until we return to Sundown again!
