Summer at Whoa! Studios

Summer at Whoa! Studios

We love the urban playground at Whoa! Studios, especially the giant crochet play net.  For the 2017/2018 summer school holidays the urban park is even better, as there are also two fun giant inflatables setup for the summer. 

Test your parkour skills on Whoa! Run the  60m long Obstacle Course.  There are two courses an easy and more difficult one. Kids need to be 1m tall to go on the Obstacle course.

Enjoy the thrill of Whoa! Wet, the giant 3 story water slide.  My two daughters were initially hesitant as it looked so high, but after the first slide they loved it.  They think the water slide is the best thing at Whoa! Studios and want to go back again. Kids need to be 1.1m tall for the water slide so check the height of your kids before you go, so there is no disappointment on the day if they aren’t tall enough. 

They also have these really cute changing tents, so if you are going on the Whoa! Wet water slide you can get changed into your togs here.

Whoa! have added fences that partially surround the urban playground and carpark since we were here last.  There are also some new tables and umbrellas around the giant crochet net, which are the perfect spot to enjoy a coffee and watch the kids play.

This summer there are two live shows to see at the Whoa! Studios treehouse stage.  Custard of the Caribbean is a fun family show for kids aged 5 to 12 years old and is on Wednesday to Sunday for summer. My nine year old and seven year old daughters both enjoyed watching this show.  The Duck of Destiny a Custard’s World Mini Adventure is best for children five years and under.  When you see a live show at Whoa! you get free all day access to the urban park too.

The outdoor tables at the family eatery The Grounds are a perfect spot for lunch as you can watch the kids play on the urban park while you don’t need to rush your meal.   If you only want something small to eat, the ice creams at the Tuck Shop are really good.
