Drusillas Park

We were lucky enough to go to Drusillas Park over the Easter bank holiday when the weather was perfectly sunny and warm. Drusillas is a Zoo and Adventure Park with rides and lots of fun areas to play. Our children: Chloe (6) Katie (3) Jake ( nearly 1) came along for a very exciting day out.

Zoo Animals to see

Upon arriving we were able to park straight away close to the entrance, the queue to enter the park moved really quickly around five minutes baring in mind it was a bank holiday Monday too.

When we walked in the girls were able to pick up stamp books ( free of charge ) there is a stamp station next to each animal in the book, the children need to spot the animal.

On certain days the park has Characters there to meet! On the day we went PJ Masks were in residence, after queuing it was well worth it! The Characters spent a good amount of time talking to my children then posing for photos. They made the girls so happy and now they love watching PJ Masks!

Next the girls were desperate to go to the water play area, it’s great because it’s really safe and there are lots of benches and Astro turf that parents/ carers can sit and watch their children have fun! Plus it’s next to the park area, which my girls loved and didn’t want to leave! We even went back later in the day. The refillable slush I think it was around £3 for a refillable cup then £1 a top up, because it was so warm she went back a few times, was definitely a firm favourite with my Eldest Daughter. We didn’t go to the soft play because it was a very warm day but have in the past and it’s an amazing size soft play area that is well looked after.

Next we went to the Hello Kitty Rides, even for a bank holiday there were barely any queue’s amazing! So the girls went on the rides again and again.

This ride was a firm favourite

We then went and brought lunch from the Explorers Cafe, I felt there was a good selection and a self serve salad bar which had a good selection. It came to around £22 for 4 of us to eat ( Baby Jake ate a bit of our meals and some food i’d brought with me. )

Then time for more rides, the new Rainforest Carousel, which was so beautiful and the girls loved riding on it with their Dad standing alongside their horses, Chloe (6) found the giant Elephant in front of the ride that made funny noises hilarious!

Thank you for a wonderful day Drusillas, the girls can’t wait to come back, and are already asking me! It really was the perfect family day and I’d highly recommend to other Parents.

So much fun!

We were kindly given entry to the park by Drusillas in exchange for this review and Instagram coverage all opinions are my own. ( Instagram story’s in my highlights under ‘Days Out’ )

Shrek’s Adventure

My girls and I were very excited to go to Shreks Adventure in London a few days ago.

I took all three children with me on the train, It was a pleasant walk about twenty minutes after  just one tube stop at Green Park ( which has lifts for access if a wheelchair or pushchair user) . I packed a picnic which the children ate overlooking the River Thames and London Eye.

Be sure to arrive at least 15 minutes early for ticket collection and to be ready for the tour.

Once everyone was gathered the most exciting and enchanting tour began, no cameras were allowed so for this reason I will just highlight what we loved about the experience.

After an exciting very interactive introduction, down a fabulous corridor,  We began the tour meeting lots of different Characters who engaged with the children, I could see my girls were completely engrossed in the mission!

Part of the tour includes a very fun ride on a bus! With all kinds of goings on as part of an adventure story!

At the end of the tour there is a exciting surprise and then the opportunity to take photos with lots of exhibits including scenes from How to Train your Dragon.

We really enjoyed the tour, one thing I would recommend if travelling as the only adult in the party is to bring a baby carrier, as the tour lasts approximately one hour and 15 minutes  if your child isn’t yet walking as no pushchairs/ strollers are allowed within the tour. 

At the end of the tour there is a gift shop with lots of cool toys, I said the girls could pick one each, My 6 year old picked a baby key ring and my 3 year old choose Princess Fiona both were pretty reasonable for London prices. The key ring was £5 and the Princess Fiona was £7.50. 

It’s a really fun 4D experience and long enough to keep little minds entertained for the whole adventure, My girls really want to return soon.
