With the kids off school there’s no better chance for quality family time than the month of August. Here are five experiences that both children and parents will enjoy…

Wahoo Waterpark

Waterparks don’t get any more fun than this! predominantly indoors, Wahoo is 15,000sqm of pure slide and splash excitement. you’re guaranteed a waterfest with thrilling rides and attractions like the Master Blaster, sidewinder, and Matt Racer, alongside a multi-level rain fortress, wave pool, toddler pool and lazy river – there’s something for everyone here, regardless of age. That’s why Wahoo makes the cut as one of the best places in Bahrain to cool off this summer with the whole family. Wahoo is located at City Centre Bahrain.

Games day

There’s no better quality time spent than a few hours playing board games! get out your Monopoly, snakes & ladders, operation, guess Who, scrabble, Jenga, and anything else you’ve got in the toy room, to settle in for an afternoon of family fun! get the kids involved by letting them keep score cards, and have little rewards at hand for players (candy usually works), or go old-school with a game of charades and get into teams – the possibilities for crazy amounts of fun are limitless!

Visit The Toy Store or Virgin Megastore at City Centre Bahrain to shop for board games.

Friday Brunch

If there’s one thing you can count on for summer in Bahrain, it’s Friday Brunch! There are so many great options to try, all offering variety of food and plenty of entertainment for families. one of our favourite indoor, family-friendly brunches is at lemon Tree in Ramee grand Hotel & spa. As well as live entertainment, kids can keep occupied with activities like face painting, an arts and craft area, a popcorn station and everyone’s favourite purple dino, Barney, will be doing the rounds as well. The food is a delicious mix of the hotel’s four dining outlets including Italian, Indian, Japanese and International – yummy! Friday Brunch at Ramee grand Hotel & spa runs from 12noon to 4pm.

Magic island

As far as indoor games and rides go, Magic Island at seef Mall is doing things right! This place is a labyrinth of pure fun, featuring numerous rides for both kids and grown ups, a dedicated play area for children and, one of our favourites, action-packed 4D simulator games. There’s the Crazy Raft, the submarine Jet, the side Winder, the spring Ride, bumper cars and so much more. We personally recommend the dark and spooky skeleton Cove journey, or some jumping fun on the trampolines, and even the good ol’ dance machines – every corner of Magic Island delivers an epic adventure for the entire family.
