Time Out Adventures

By

My family and I were very lucky to be invited to an afternoon visiting Time Out Adventures last Saturday afternoon. Located amongst the gorgeous grounds at Pacific Bay Resort, Time Out is open to the public which is good for us Coffs locals!

There are SO many activities to do at Time Out, the hardest thing would be choosing which activity to do! So whether it be a fun afternoon of family bonding, something to occupy the kids during the school holidays or weekend, a special treat or even a birthday party, Time Out is the perfect place to spend an hour or two.

Here are some of the activities we did:

BUMPER BALLS

The best thing about this activity is it can be enjoyed by anyone. You don’t need any special sporting skills (I certainly don’t have any!) and it is SO much fun. Not only that, even if you aren’t “on field” it’s hilarious to watch. I couldn’t stop laughing.

Simply crawl inside the big blown up balls, and try your best to run around and stay on your feet. There are games played as well, such as last “bumper” standing and bumper soccer.

You can have any number of people particating as the activity can be quite tiring, so it’s good to have a rest and sit back and laugh watching the others get bumped around. I would also suggest this activity is good for ages 8 years and upwards.

SPASH GOLF

Splash Golf is heaps of fun, especially for those who have never played golf before! My kids loved it! Step up to the platform, grab a ball from your bucket and aim for the floating targets. There are even prizes to be won for hitting a target or getting a hole in one. The lagoon where the splash golf is played is just gorgeous, what an amazing setting for some family fun! The youngest in the family even enjoyed this, so probably fine for 5 year olds upwards.

SEGWAY

By far the number #1 favourite activity of everyone for the afternoon. You’ve seen segways before but not many people have a chance to try one. Well, cruising around on the paths at Pacific Bay is the perfect opportunity for an introduction!

Riding a Segway is quite simply amazing; it feels like nothing you’ve experienced – because there’s never been anything like it. It’s very easy to learn and our instructor was very helpful and hands on. Please note, Segways are only available for kids over 28kgs.

PADDLEBOATS

The newest addition to the Time Out Coffs family, these are SO much fun for the whole family. They can seat four and it’s a lovely little ride out around the lagoon. Perfect lazy afternoon activity and getting out in the fresh air. Just make sure Dad is in the front to paddle!

OZBOBBLE

Another favourite, and also very funny to watch for those not participating. It’s hard to describe what these are if you’ve never seen one in action before so here’s a short time lapse:

 

Once inside your Ozbobble (it’s like a Zorb ball but on water) you will run, float, somersault and more on water without getting wet. Then afterwards go for a swim in the lovely pools to cool down and relax. Access to the pool is included in the price of the Ozbobble fun.

And at the end of all that fun and activity, of course we needed to sit down for that well earned ice-cream. Also available at the Time Out Cafe are snacks, coffee, slushies and other food and drinks.

 

There are other activities to do at Time Out such as the gorgeous 9 hole golf course, archery and bopping heads music video. You can combine activities or get special packages. AND don’t forget, Time Out is the perfect place to have a birthday party for the ‘older kids’ who have outgrown places like Tabatinga and Springloaded. My 12 year is old is begging for his next birthday party to be an OzBobble pool party!

Time out is probably the first place that I’ve taken my kids that I’ve enjoyed as much as they have, and they’ve been talking about it non-stop since we went. It’s one of those experiences we will all remember, we definitely made some memories that afternoon!

A BIG thanks to Glen, the manager, for personally escorting us and showing us around all the activities. Glen and his staff are very friendly, relaxed and easy going and definitely made the afternoon a lot fun for us.
