Half Term Fun For The Whole Family

Written by,

Charlene Bent

May half term is fast approaching (woohoo!), and it can be difficult to find ways to keep your little ones entertained. Luckily for you, we’ve gathered up a fun list of ways to keep them busy for hours. You may even want to join in on some of the action!

The best part about all the kid-friendly fun at Rushden Lakes is how easily accessible they are, and you can indulge in a plethora of activities and then dine to refuel before doing it all over again!

Start by exploring one square mile of wild and man-made habitats around Rushden Lakes with the Nene Wetlands nature reserve. Take in the fresh air and enjoy the twenty thousand waterbirds that use the wetlands every year, for breeding or as a vital stopping point on their long migration routes. Come suited and booted with wellies and get set to discover wildlife along the trail.

Fancy reaching new heights this half term? Rock-Up is the perfect stop for the whole family to get active and experience the fun of climbing on indoor climbing walls. Whatever the weather you can climb; prices start at £13.25 per child and £15.50 per adult, or £53.00 for a family of four. Go all the way and climb walls towering over 8m and get set for mountains of fun. Suitable from 4 years old+, but if your family includes under 5’s, they offer toddler climbing along with climbing soft play.

Want an option that’ll guarantee your kids will burn lots of energy? Opt for 360 Play, and enjoy the huge indoor soft play area for ages 4-12. Designed with giant wave sides, aerial gliders, racetracks, interactive ball zone, slides and lots more! They’ll be entertained for hours. And if the weather is bright and you fancy stepping outside to extend your play, ‘The Big Outdoors’ is a great place to continue your visit. Relax on the deck and sip your coffee or tuck into a delicious lunch, whilst the kids indulge in the stimulating fun in the sun.

Best yet? 360’s summer pass is available from the 1st June. For £55, 1 child and any 1 accompanying adult can enjoy unlimited play throughout Half Term and the Summer Holidays this year!

Like a bit of Crazy Golf? Then you’ll love adventure golf! Head to Paradise Island and find yourself amidst the wreckage of an abandoned aircraft. The mission is to choose between two 18-hole adventure golf courses of tropical utopia. The 19th hole gives adventure golfers the chance to win a free game at the end of the journey. With a family of four tickets starting from £26.00, expect to beat every challenge in the quest for a-hole-in-one and have non-stop competitive fun.

There’s so much more to see at Rushden Lakes and the kids will adore the exciting combination of trampolines and inflatables at Flip Out and even the 4DX movie experiences at Cineworld. And with all the fun you’ll be having, you’ll need to note a few child-friendly hotspots to enjoy some delicious food for the whole family.

Jurassic Grill offers everyday favourites with Dino power for a prehistoric twist. Choose from dishes such as an Apattysaurus 6oz Aberdeen Angus burger topped with cheese and caramelised onions. Or a Saber Tooth 2x Crispy chicken breast, smothered in Katsu curry sauce.  They’ll love the dinosaur theme, and once they’ve eaten until their tummies are full, they can shop until they drop with the great selection of dinosaur toys, puzzles and games in the store.

Who doesn’t love a good crispy Italian inspired pizza? Pizza Express is the ultimate comfort food, set to leave a cheesy moustache and smiles on little faces. And with a kid’s menu designed to entice them with doughy delights, the famous classics such as a Margherita will win every time.

Wagamama is ready to welcome your little noodles over the half term break with a kids menu, packed full of fresh and exciting flavours to discover. It contains delicious smaller-sized dishes, including ramen and noodles, and chicken, fish or vegetarian / vegan options.

For the teens in your family, Five Guys offer a mouth-watering diner selection guaranteed to keep them happy.

The perfect selfie spot has been updated to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Round up your little ones and take the perfect picture amongst the purple flowers and golden crowns in front of our dazzling lake.
