We are big fans of Lemur Landings at Tower Park, Poole and at the beginning of the year we were intrigued to find that they had closed some of the centre off to be updated.
We have been enjoying the facilities since Isaac was a baby and both Isaac and Eliza have enjoyed birthday parties there, with Isaac having a Phaser Party and Eliza having a Create a Bear Party and a My Little Pony Craft Party.
Last month we were invited to the Lemur Landings launch party to get an exclusive look at what has changed and if it was brilliant before – it is awesome now.
The massive transformation has taken the centre to an all new level, with an investment of £250,000 they have added a brand new party suite; created Leweyville – a role play village for the under 6’s, moved the dedicated toddler playframe, added a new sky tykes low ropes course, improved access facilities and extended the facilities for older children by adding a LED climbing wall and a Digi Wall.
We were greeted by Lewey and Lola before heading in to see all the changes – I think Lola may have taken a shine to Hubby *cough*
The kids headed straight to their favourite part of centre – the Interactive DigiWall as they were keen to show Daddy just how it worked.
The DigiWall is a cross between a climbing wall and computer game with 6 games to choose from. With lights and sounds it is all-action activity. Climb up down, left and right, follow my leader, match the pairs or catch the light before it falls to the ground. The best thing about it is that the whole family can all join in and compete against each other.
Another firm favourite is the new 5m high, 4 lane climbing wall with illuminated holds and time clocks. Isaac was determined to get to beat the fastest time of the day and beat his own record.
Whilst Isaac and Eliza raced up and down the climbing walls, Sebastian took a turn on the Sky Tykes course which is aimed at children below 1.2m and at least 2 years old. The course is a great way to build confidence and balance and is made from several different rope elements all with differing degrees of difficulty.
Next to the Sky Tykes course is a floor projector which flips between games such as football, chasing eggs and even a giant piano keyboard.
The main play frame is still relatively the same, although the old air canons have been moved into it.
Although mine will always say they love the climbing walls the most, I always struggle to tear them away from Leweyville Farm interactive role play village. The detail in here is amazing and all the little houses have been named after members of staff which is a lovely idea.
There are Little Tikes cars to drive along the road, a police station, school, shop, fire station, vets and builders yard where the kids can get dressed up and role play until their hearts content.
It was an evening full of fun for everyone involved and I can highly recommend Lemur Landings to keep the kids entertained over the summer holidays and beyond.
Lemur Landings is open 7 days a week from 9:30am until 6.00pm.
Want to include a splash in your day? They also offer combo tickets for Splashdown which allow you to spend two hours in Splashdown; flumin’ great fun for all the family just next door, followed by as long as you want in Lemur Landings.
Oh and I got a hug from Lewey and Lola too 🙂
