Last week I was kindly given VIP Tickets to see Santa’s Magical Kingdom at the Crown Pyramid, Perth!
I dragged my kids for a fun – and rare – evening out.
There were interactive walk-throughs (with lots of falling fake snow!), lots of carnival rides (roller coaster, spinning things, bumper cars, sky flyer, spinning teacups and more), an extravagant Christmas show, gingerbread decorating, Christmas craft, super-sized bouncy castle, inflated mega-slide, and roaming Christmas characters.
What made it great was that you paid for the ticket entry once and you didn’t need to pay for any activities again.
There were lots of things to do inside and the 3 hour entry duration was just perfect.
The only extra things you have to pay for are food, sideshow games, or photos with Santa.
Yes my kids were probably a little old for it (especially my 15yo and 13yo), but I encouraged them to forget about “looking cool / acting cool” and just enjoy the moment.
They had a blast!!
I was so happy my kids could still find a child-like joy and have some silly fun.
There were lots of rides and my kids found a certain pleasure going on the rides again and again and again until they couldn’t walk properly.
The Christmas show was pretty good too.
We had amazing seats, right in front, but it made us feel terribly afraid that a performer might pick us out to be a “stage volunteer” for one of their acts.
There were lots of circus performers, acrobats, cute little dogs doing tricks and….
Three guys on motorcycles driving around the inside of a globe, at the same time!
My kids had never seen anything like that before, up close. It was very cool to watch.
Lastly, I had to follow my own advice, about having child-like fun.
My kids pressured me into going on this Sky Flying Ride.
If you’re a long time reader, you’ll know that I’m VERY susceptible to motion sickness. I get dizzy if I’m in the backseat of a car! I get dizzy on my own office chair!
So here I am, next to my middle boy, who is just as prone to motion-sickness as I am.
My older boy and younger boy were seated behind us, photobombing our in-air selfie.
Looking down into the carpark below!
Oooh myyyy gosh, I got really dizzy, but it was a lot of fun + laughs. We took a lot of selfies and videos to distract us from spewing (just kidding).
Big thanks to the Santa’s Magical Kingdom team. It was such a fun night with my boys. I totally recommend it!
