Big fun for big and small kids (including big adult kids)
When you have children who differ in age, it is sometimes hard to find something that they are all happy doing. It's even harder if you have girls and boys to please.
So imagine a place that will cater for all ages (even teenagers) and somewhere that boys and girls will equally enjoy? I introduce you to Latitude. An experience that everyone will enjoy as they bounce, climb and fly.
And if you think that Latitude is just for kids, think again! With over an acre of aerial activities on offer, Latitude will challenge the body and mind of all you big kids too.
There is a dedicated gated area for younger children from 18 months to 5 years and under 110cm tall. There is a foam pit with stepping stones, a three story adventure playground plus mini trampolines with plenty of bounce. There is a parent's change room, lots of seating and pram parking in this section.
There is a free jump trampoline extravaganza, an air bag area, basketball, dodgeball games, tumble mats for the gymnasts, and performance trampolines that are extra bouncy and for experienced jumpers only.
The other area is the climbing area which includes The Grid, the Skywalk and the rock climbing walls. All these areas require closed in shoes to be worn at all times.
The Grid is a mini ninja warrior course and you have to be 125cm to play.
The rock climbing walls require a quick induction by a staff member and children under 13 need constant adult supervision whilst in this area. They use the auto belay system which doesn't require another person to help each climber.
The Skywalk is challenging the first time but does get easier the more you do it (so my children told me!). We saw some people doing the course backwards once they had mastered going forward so there is always another challenge round the corner. There is help at hand if needed from the skilled, trained staff and we witnessed this first hand; a young boy needed help to get round the course and a staff member was so helpful and encouraging and once the little lad completed the course, all the staff 'high-fived' him when he finished. That was lovely to see and gave me confidence that my children would be well cared for there.
