If you live local to Xscape, round up the kids and take a leisurely walk to our outdoor play area. A late afternoon-into-evening treat that is bound to burn off any residual energy left from the day!

6. Active 'Me Time' Evenings
We are well-known for our active brands here at Xscape. Make the most of the light evenings and use the extra time for you. Hit the snow slope at Snozone to work every muscle and improve your cardio, book onto an evening Gravity HIIT class for a full body workout, and head over to JD Gyms for their popular spinning classes.
7. Sweet Evening Treats
When the summer holidays hit, it can be a challenge to fill the days with things to do with the kids. Try something different this year with a full day in your own garden or local park followed by an evening visit to Xscape for a Build Your Own ice cream treat at Heavenly Desserts followed by an hour of carnival gaming fun at Funstation.
