We had an amazing family day out at The Web Adventure Park in York during the Easter holiday. There was SO much to do (both indoors and outdoors) with a variety of rides and activities to cater for children of all ages.
We started in the outdoor area, which was huge! There were loads of fun fairground rides to go on including a carousel, helter skelter, teacups, pony express ride, rollercoaster, hot air balloons, speedway, twisters and lots more! There were height restriction guides at the entrance to each of the rides. My little ones (aged 3 and 5) were able to go on the majority of the rides but there were some that were suitable for older children and teenagers too. Despite the park being busy, there were no queues at all for the rides which meant the mini mumblers could go on them as many times as they liked without getting bored at all!
After we’d been on lots of rides it was time for lunch. It was a lovely, warm day when we visited and lots of people were making the most of the picnic benches outdoors to either picnic or order food. We noticed that there were QR codes on each of the picnic benches which meant that you could order your food online and a staff member would bring it to your outdoor table for you! We thought this was a great idea however there was quite a long wait time for food so we opted to go to the hotdog stand instead. The food and drinks were very reasonably priced though which was another bonus.
After lunch the children enjoyed playing on the ride on tractors and exploring the sand and water areas; they spent ages in the sandpit building sandcastles. These areas are fantastic for younger children but remember to take some spare clothes in case they get wet and dirty! There was also a great outdoor adventure play area which the little ones spent a long time exploring.
The Web has a small petting farm with rabbits, guinea pigs, sheep, goats, ponies and alpacas which you can visit at any time of the day and hand feed some of the animals. The animals looked happy and well cared for and there were hand washing stations available in this area too.
After feeding the animals we went to the bouncing pillows which are new to the park this year. Here they have two separate pillows for different aged children which meant that my three year old could have a great time jumping without getting bumped around by the older ones. Following this we had a go on the crazy golf course which was dinosaur themed. The mini mumblers both wanted to complete the course but didn’t want any help from the adults, so this took us quite a while!
We didn’t go into the indoor play area until the end of the day (when it was much quieter) but it was by far the largest soft play area I have ever been to and incorporated segregated areas for toddlers, football, role play and a large baby area with two baby sensory rooms.
We spent 7 hours in the park and never once got bored! We were so busy that we didn’t watch any of the entertainment but there were three shows scheduled for the day and an ‘Eggy Olympics’ in which children could take part in various races with everyone who took part receiving a prize.
I would really recommend The Web Adventure Park for a fun day out for all ages. There’s a great mix of indoor and outdoor play, fairground rides and animals to keep the children entertained all day and everything is included in the cost of a ticket so brilliant value too!
