Treasure Island

We had heard a lot about the 'new' playcentre - Treasure Island from Annette and Kylie, and were hanging out for the Easter holidays to take the boys there.  Today was the only day we had some In Home Support during the day for the Easter week, and we knew there wouldn't really be much for Noah to do, so we decided to go today while Di was looking after him.

The boys had been counting down the days all week as they had heard that there were 'guns' and were keen to check it out.  The boys still like going to Kids Paradise, but it has become really run down and not as good as it used to be, so we were keen to see how they compared.  As soon as the boys got inside they were excited to run off and play.

Kobe headed straight to the toddlers area and had lots of fun thumping out some notes on the keyboard.
He was keen to go down the slide in the toddler area, but was scared to walk across the netted area and kept saying 'high Mummy!'.

He also loved throwing himself back into the balls and yelling 'me stuck!'.

The boys loved collecting (and throwing!) balls and going up to the guns to shoot them at each other.

Even Aaron and I had fun going down the big slides with the boys.

Kobe got brave in the end and kept going down by himself.

I am not a thrill seeker at all, and hate anything that makes my stomach go, but when I saw the big blue curvy slide, I thought I'd give it a go anyway.  It was totally dark the whole way down and dropped very quickly, so Aaron had a great time laughing at me as I screamed the whole way down. 

In one area there are different machines where you can press buttons that would create a stream of air and you could then get balls to float in the air.  Kobe was fascinated by it. 

The boys had a great time and said it was better than Kids Paradise.

We loved it too and it was nice having it all on one level and being able to sit down and have something to eat while the kids were playing. The only thing we thought that could be improved was that they need to put a child's safety gate somewhere so that little kids can't get out.  Even though we hardly took our eyes off Kobe, there were a couple of times where we couldn't see him for a minute and it worried me that he could've just walked out through the main entrance.

We will definitely be going back next school holidays.


  1. That looks like so much fun!!! Hallie is going on Saturday with some school friends for her birthday.

  2. It's such a cool place and very well done. I love Kobe's face looking at the balls in the air stream.

  3. I'm glad u put this post up cos I am hoping to take the boys (and the girls!) there tomorrow to try it out!!! Looks like fun. I need to have a trial run to see how safe it is for daycare to so surely my fees can be a deduction for tomorrow??

  4. FUN! What a great day! I'm glad you had someone to look after Noah so that you could run and play with the boys too. :)

  5. Looks awesome, my boys would love it. Will have to go next holidays


We are so grateful for everyone's love and support, and appreciate your comments xoxo
