Oxygen FreeJumping

Family days out, Mummy life

Last Sunday we had a play date at Oxygen FreeJumping in Croydon and had a great time!

We booked online and paid around £12.50 each and it cost £2 for their socks! You have to wear special jumping socks when attending any of these trampoline parks, fortunately my two have been to a trampoline centre before with my Mum and my sister so they already had their socks from then, so just myself and my friends daughter bought some that day!

We had to arrive half hour early before our scheduled slot at 3pm to check in and get our wrist bands and then 10 minutes before our slot we entered into a room to watch a quick introduction video that explains some ground rules before you have an hour out in the main trampoline area!

It was a fun way to spend our Sunday and I recommend it if your looking for a fun morning or afternoon out, especially on a not-so-sunny spring/summer day that may occur during our ‘summer time’ as sometimes you can make outdoor plans only to find that it is cold on the actually day, oh how unpredictable our summer is over here in the UK!

I think I enjoyed it just as much as the kids did!!

Have you been before? Which one did you go to and what did you think of it?

ZSL London Zoo – Review

Family days out

We went to the ZSL London Zoo on a super hot bank holiday Monday yesterday and a lot of the animals seemed to be in hiding!

I was looking forward to seeing the gorillas, elephants, lions, tigers and giraffes, however I only saw the giraffes and gorillas because they have no elephants at ZSL London Zoo and the Tigers and Lions were relaxing in the shade so much so that I never even saw a Lion and I only saw a tiger for a moment before he hid away again.

However the Gorilla’s were amazing. Especially this guy here:

Near to the end before we were about to leave we decided to check out the Gorillas for one last time and we got to see them playing nicely together as a family.

It was my first time visiting ZSL London Zoo and although it was a good day out and a lovely Zoo, I think that I prefer my visit to Chester Zoo a few years ago because they had a lot more animals there.

The kids absolutely loved it though! It was a super hot day and so they needed lots to drink but other than that they were happily playing together as well as admiring and chatting away about all of the animals (my friend and her children came along too) so it was a fun day trip out/play date for all of us!

How much did I pay:

I ordered our tickets online a few days before:

• Adult ticket was £24.30 each

• Child ticket £18.00 each

• There was also the option to buy tickets at the door but those tickets cost slightly more

I think that if there had been a few more lions and tigers and I’d have seen some elephants then the experience would have been even better however it was still a fun day out!

Have you been to ZSL London Zoo before? What did you think of it?
