Offering children the best fun & play in Docklands

The words "school holidays" seem to bring the anxiety out of some parents. Add the word "Christmas" and the stress levels rocket. While both occasions provide reasons for quality time with the kids, it can be a challenge to find enough activities and entertainment to keep easily bored children occupied. Fortunately in Dockland lies a haven that can provide your kids with a full day of fun while you take a breather from all the children-sitting. Here are 5 top reasons to grab your kids and spent the school holidays down at Wonderland Fun Park.

1) 11 Fun-tastic Rides and Games

Wonderland Fun Park offer a variety of fun, exciting and safe rides and games for kids to enjoy on their own or accompanied by an adult.

The Grand Carousel featured in the movie 'Charlotte's Web' was a classic dating back to the 1940s. Another merry-go-round ride is the classic Tea Cup ride.

The Jurassic Adventure allows kids to climb the wall, ride the slide and jump on Jurassic dinosaurs.

The Crazy Wave allows parents and kids above 122 centimetres to ride together while The Dragon Flyer takes passengers up high.

Wacky Worm Roller Coaster provides adrenaline-filled entertainment for young ones. Those standing at a metre can brave the ride alone while smaller kids can bring an adult.

Kids of all ages and go flying and somersaulting up to 7 metres with the Bungee Trampoline without any adult accompaniment.

Walk on Water Balls allow kids 3 years and above and under 60 kilograms to run and roll on the water unaccompanied without getting wet.

Just loads of bumping and crashing with Dodgem Cars. Kids at 1.2 metres can drive solo and adults can join in the fun with their smaller children.

Kids and adults can purchase 5 balls to place in the mouths of the Laughing Clowns and win a prize.

If fishing is your family thing that Catch a Fish might just land you and your child the pick of the stand or a small toy.

2) Santa's Magical Wonderland

With the festive season bundled with the school holidays, Wonderland Fun Park has been transformed into a Christmas north pole village, complete with an enchanted forest, make-a-wish tree and Santa's mailbox to post those special letters.

This inner-city fun park offering rides and attractions throughout the year is celebrating the festive season as Santa's Magical Wonderland. There are daily snowfalls and icy snow-cones to help keep Summer at bay. Santa will also be making appearances throughout the day to take photographs with kids and families.
