Paradise Island Adventure Golf Rushden Lakes

Paradise Island Adventure Golf has landed at Rushden Lakes.  In the wreckage of an abandoned air craft, are two 18 hole adventure courses, spanning 14,000 sq/ft.  On the 19th hole you get the chance to win a free game!

I was invited along to try out the new Paradise Island Adventure Golf and can say it was a hit!  A few of the deceivingly simple holes caught us out and we all found the 2nd course slightly easier.  We were advised by a lovely member of staff that the 2nd course is also wheelchair friendly with wider access.  There was a wide variety of clubs to suit all heights and a good layout.  You can purchase snacks, drinks and there is a mini arcade, toilets and lockers.

Paradise Island Adventure Golf is located at the far end of Rushden Lakes in the same building as 360 Play and Rock Up.  With 5 hours free parking we had lunch after and a brief stroll along the boardwalk.

Paradise Island Adventure Golf is a perfect family activity and great way to get the kids out when you really cannot face another trip to the park. We spent just under 2 hours there which was for both courses.

The only thing missing according to the kids was a water feature hole! We will definitely be back.

Riverside Hub Review

Riverside Hub has a huge playframe, go-karts, climbing tree, laser invasion, carousel and sensory room.  Room, explore and play!

I was asked to visit with my children to see how good Riverside Hub is.  My children LOVED laser invasion and the climbing tree.  They both enjoyed being able to just freely go on things with no additional payments and as many times as they wanted.


Riverside Hub Laser Invasion

As a parent I loved that you can see the main play zone easily and it was reassuring to be able to spot your children.  The whole of Riverside Hub was clean and bright. The equipment all looked well maintained and the new under 5's water play area was just lovely & I felt a little sad my children are too old to use it!

Riverside Hub Under 5's

We were there for 2 hours and the kids didn't want to leave.  I hadn't been to Riverside Hub for quite a while as my 12 year thought her indoor play centre days were over but there is so much to do she really enjoyed herself.  My 8 year old son LOVED laser invasion and spent at least 45 minutes playing!

Whilst there I discovered an amazing deal visit the Hub after 3pm Monday-Thursday during school term times, and each child will receive a kids meal and a cup of squash or milk.  Valid for children aged 1 - 12 when paying full admission price.

They are also currently running the Spring Funfair every Saturday in April.  Easter specials include: 🐰Easter Trail 🐰Whack-a-bunny game 🐰Free Pottery Painting Tickets are £10.50 per child and £4 per adult. 



Riverside Hub also offers SEN days on the 1st Thursday of every month (this maybe changing to the 3rd so please check)  the music and lights are lower and between 6pm and 8pm the whole area is much quieter. Admission is £7.95 and carers are free.

We didn't eat at the Hub but I liked the fact jacket potatoes were in the menu and it states All the food is oven baked and not fried.

The party room floor looked amazing & I especially loved the dinosaur themed area!
