Towards the end of the summer holidays I started to feel VERY guilty that I hadn’t managed to give the kids a particularly exciting Summer. In my defence, I had a 3 month old baby, Sydney was at gymnastics almost every afternoon and Zak did 3 weeks of tennis camp as well as the usual swimming lessons, so it wasn’t like we sat around watching TV all day. I also wanted to give the kids chance to play and make things rather than be rushed around all the time.
Facebook is wonderful but also terrible for feeding the Mum Guilt, everyday I’d see photos of our friends either on lovely sunny holidays or doing something exciting while we were hanging around at home, or on our way to gymnastics and tennis. So, to appease my guilt a little I planned in some fun Sunday day trips for after school started. First up was Net Kingdom which I came across when booking GoApe for my 7 year old’s birthday treat. I knew the kids would LOVE it so booked straight away and dragged some lovely friends along too.
As soon as the nets came into view the kids couldn’t wait to get started. It was quite hard to photograph as it was so big, but you get the idea.
There are slides, little huts, balls to bounce and it’s all up in the trees!
How much is it?
Nets Kingdom is currently £20 per child, which isn’t cheap, but that gets you 2 hours of treetop fun and my 3 loved it so much they only came down to ask for a snack once in the 2 hours, which is always the sign of a good time.
Can parents watch?
Parents can sit under the nets and watch, there’s lots of room and a little snack bar too.
Children aged 1-4 need to be accompanied by an adult.
We had a fantastic couple of hours at Nets Kingdom and would say it’s definitely worth the money.

Oh that looks like a lot of fun, I’d like a go myself 🙂
This looks like so much fun *googles how far Black Park is from me*
Oh that looks amazing – kids would love it though I would be petrified 😉 I decided this year that I was giving the children a 1970’s summer and basically left them to entertain themselves as much as possible with trips out to the beach up the road when it was sunny, everywhere is so busy during the summer holidays anyway that the big day out places aren’t always that much fun.
I love that idea and totally agree on everywhere being too busy.
Oh wow that certainly looks like so much fun! My girls would love that! It’s less than 2 hours away from us so might have to pay it a visit!
Oh wow, I would love to do that! Such a shame that it is so far away from us as I would definitely do that if it came to a Go Ape near us.
