We have some very exiting news to share! After attending a few events at the Weymouth SEA LIFE Centre over the last year we are now proud to announce that we are Weymouth SEA LIFE Ambassadors 2018 and we are looking forward to sharing our thoughts on all the fantastic activities, zones & playgrounds in the centre over the next 12 month with you! With the children having an Inset Day end of last week I thought we take this opportunity to visit the park on a weekday to enjoy it with less of a crowd!
With temperatures over 27 degrees and rising there was no doubt that the children would want to go in the Splash Zone and Pool area of the centre so I packed their swim stuff and suncream and off we went! First we pick up our brand new passes at the till before we could go and have some fun at Castaway Bay:
Within Castaway Bay the kids can run around in the water play area which has lots of different water jets coming out of the grounds or barrels as well as a ship’s wheel so they can pretend to be a captain:

The kids had a blast running in and out of the water jets, covering them up and chasing each other before heading back to the pool again!
The pool area which is the kids favourite part of the Splash Zone has an around 200mm deep pool alongside a slide coming out of a barrel in the middle of it and a big barrel on some stilts which fills up with water before it releases said water through a pipe into the pool roughly every 3-5 minutes. As you can see from my little GIF below the kids spend at least half of the morning getting soaked over and over again!
The barrel slide is very short which makes it ideal for little ones to join into the fun too, the kids couldn’t get enough of sliding down over and over again!
You can visit the Snack Shack Kiosk for delicious donuts, ice-creams and drinks, a perfect sweet treat after a day in the sun and there’s plenty of seating available for those not wishing to get as wet! Alongside the Kiosk are some lockers for your valuables and in each of the 3 bright blue coloured huts you can find a wall mounted baby changing facility:
Inside the Castaway Bay area you also find a little Sensory Garden to explore which is a small area with some fitted sensory outdoor music toys to make sounds through pipes, bins and bells:
After attending the opening of the brand new home of Europe’s only Fairy Penguin Colony back in May the kids couldn’t wait to show Mr. C. the little blue penguins and he agreed that there rather lovely little fellas:
