School hol­i­day in­spi­ra­tion

We’ve col­lated five of the best school hol­i­day ac­tiv­i­ties:

Central Leader - - LIFESTYLE & LEISURE -

New Zealand’s first Vir­tual Re­al­ity Ar­cade is buzzing with ac­tiv­i­ties out of this world. There’s a retro gam­ing room with nos­tal­gic games like Alex the Kid, Pac­Man, Don­key Kong and Space In­vaders - or those kids of the 80s that never quite grew up.


There’s some­thing for ev­ery­one at But­ter­fly Creek and there’s no bet­ter time to visit than spring­time. Baby lambs, bun­nies and chicks are all on show and cud­dle-friendly. You can also get up close with Scar The Croc­o­dile or walk amongst more than 700 but­ter­flies.


Whether you’re seek­ing some hol­i­day adren­a­line or a fun adventure, Rocket Ropes has it all. Ropes cour­ses cater for all ages where any­body can test their climb­ing skills. If you’re game enough, jump on the gi­ant swing, fly on a zip line, or leap from a five me­tre plat­form.


Paint­ball is the clas­sic hol­i­day ac­tiv­ity, and Lock n Load has a new ac­tiv­ity ready to ex­plode. Ar­row Tag is a safe and fun game that com­bines dodge­ball and archery. Spe­cial foam-tipped ar­rows and bows are used so no­body gets hurt and it’s suit­able for any­one aged 11 and up.


JUMP is the per­fect rainy day ac­tiv­ity and you can visit any of the four lo­ca­tions to spring into ac­tion. Th­ese in­door tram­po­line parks have thou­sands of square me­tres of in­ter­lock­ing tram­po­lines cov­er­ing the floor. There’s also a foam pit that you can leap into, a tram­po­line dodge­ball court and a bas­ket­ball hoop.
