I know that my last country kids post was about our visit to Plymouth hoe but we seem to be there every weekend at the moment. Instead of our usual run around Smeatons tower and the Barbican, this week we decided to visit the west side of the hoe which has an amazing children's park.
Unfortunately the main park was closed and the rides were locked away but normally they have a train, bouncy castle, tea cups, and the extreme trampolines where the kids wear a harness. These are great little rides especially as they only cost 50p a ride (except for the trampolines which cost £2). Next door however is a great little place called Treasure Island pictured below. Here the coin operated rides are a little more pricey at £1 a coin but the boys love them.
Due to the high price for the coins I only allowed the boys three rides each. Tom spent his on the electric powered motorbikes which is always a favourite of his.
Alfie had a go at the water cannons but most of the water ended up on us instead of the targets which was not comfortable when the weather was so cold that day.
I decided to treat the boys in the end to one last coin so that they could have a bounce on the trampolines. They are getting so good at these and I would love to have this particular one in our back garden, although I don't think it would fit.
Eventually, we could no longer stand the cold so ended the day pretty early. Treasure Island was great fun although in my opinion, it is more enjoyable in the summer. There is also mini golf, gold digging, bumper boats, and diggers so great for a family day out.
