The Great Escape is a fun escape room experience and an ideal day out, especially for those mystery-loving people.
You get to choose your room and experience the adventure. There are five rooms that you can play in, though me and my friends only did one. Each room has a really different setting and theme, and a different reason to escape. You get one hour to escape, but longer if you need to. You can get hints if you need them, but you still have to try and figure out clues to free yourself. Oh, and don’t worry, it’s not scary! If you really need it, there is an emergency button.
You do have to book, and prices start at $25 per person. Visit their site at www.greatescapethegame.co.nz . I recommend this activity for ages 6 and up.
Having fun AND getting exercise can sometimes be hard to find, but a great solution for this is Paradice Ice Skating. With the closest ice rink only in Avondale, it is a perfect way to spend a day on the weekend.
There are skate lessons and a holiday program for ages 4 and up. If you are not overly confident on the ice, frames are available for a small price. And if you get hungry or thirsty while skating, there is a cafe where you can warm up and have a rest.
Looking for thrills and fun on your big day? For $25 per child you can enjoy your birthday gliding with your friends on the ice. Prices start at $19 (13+) and $15 (under 13s), with a discount for bringing your own skates. I recommend this activity for any age 3 and over. So put on your warm clothes and head over to Paradice Ice Skating! www.paradice.co.nz
