For kids with a heightened sense of adventure, there will be indoor bungy jumping from FlyMotion in the Promotions Court from Saturday, 13th April to Sunday, 28th April.
The kids practise their acrobatic moves, soar up to five metres in the air and defy gravity in the safety and security of an adjustable harness. Bungy jumping will be available from 9am to 5pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, and from 9am to 9pm on Thursdays, plus from 11am to 5pm on Sunday (excludes Good Friday and Anzac Day.) The cost is $10 for 4 minutes, with family deals available.
On Tuesday, 16th April, Muffin Break will host Cookie Decorating Workshops! For a cost of $5 per person, children will receive a cookie baked fresh in store to decorate, plus a hot drink for them or yourself!
Each child can create their very own custom design with access to a selection of decorations including icing, hundreds and thousands, choc chips and smarties, before taking it home to enjoy!
The workshops will take place from 2pm to 4pm, in 30 minute intervals, and bookings are essential. You can view the website here.
Starting Monday, 22nd April, you and the kids can also come along to come and be a part of the Garden City 'Infinity Room', which will pay homage to Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama's Obliteration Room.
Spend $50 or more between 22nd April and Sunday, 28th April and collect a ticket sheet from the Information Desk and add them to the room. Watch in awe as the stark white room slowly transforms into a kaleidoscope of colour as thousands of stickers are added! You can read more here.
