    So many things for the children to do, from teeny tots to big adult kids ;)
    There is also great food vendors there (I think only on the weekend) and free BBQ's too... If you are looking for somewhere to kill time in between naps, this is the playground for your family!

    Took my neice and nephew on the tandem karts as they're bother under8. They had an absolute ball! Staff were really attentive and a good safety focus whilst remaining fun!

    As casinos go this is really cool, open seven days a week. They are extremely Covid conscious so you will feel at ease. The dinning area had about 6 televisions all plying different sports good atmosphere. Only three to four at a table at least a meter apart. Masks are worn by all staff and unless you have an exempt card you too will be expected to wear a face mask, only to be taken off when you eat or drink.
    A magnitude of slot machines all set apart. We played Roulette and I came away a winner, Lol. I highly recommend a visit, a free tip, do what I do when you win, walk away with your winnings.

    I took two teens on a pretty cool day and it was still pretty busy, I imagine due to the great outdoor space it would be packed out on a hot day. The three outdoor slides were a hit for us. I can’t help thinking there must be a market for a much bigger pool complex in Christchurch. If you are tossing up between QEII and Jellie Park, definitely pick Jellie Park if the weather is hot. The indoor pool space is probably comparative to QEII anyway.

    We climb often at our hometown and had a great time climbing here. Friendly staff, serious about safety and a whole variety of routes for beginner to advanced. Will come again next time we're in Chch.

    Went to the public bar downstairs -Spectators- not a bad little place with some decent beers and food. It has a nice spot outside. The function rooms up the top of the buliding are really excellent and work a visit if you have a bit more money to spend.

    If you have teens, don’t bother. We found the staff friendly but with only one slide and pools mostly taken up with aqua jogging and lane swimming, this pool is no good for older kids, you have a portion of a shallow pool and pretty much nothing else. We left within an hour and went to Jellie Park instead.

    Lifeguards are now encouraged to promote the council slogan, more people more active more often meaning that you can ask for toys and inflatables are often put in including a big obstacle course for a few hours on each Sunday. Definitely better in summer with dive boards and hydroslides open but worth a visit either way - don't be afraid to ask questions!

    My wife and I did the Archery and Air Rifle shooting, both were great fun. We will be back to do the Clay shooting. The activities are well instructed so even beginners like us can get into them and enjoy. Would highly recommend if your at terrace Downs or in the area to give this a go.

    We did the "Into the dark" room as a family and it was amazing! The room was engaging, immersive and challenging without being frustrating. We loved doing it in the dark - it added a fresh spin having to feel our way around the room and yell out what we found to our team. The clues were original and fun and the staff were friendly and flexible. Highly recommended!

    Great family fun, frustrating and rewarding at the same time. Lots of chatting, laughs and celebrations. Proud of ourselves 😁

    We had a fabulous time. Bouldering has got to be my least fave way to climb (because in short you aren't attached to anything that will save your life lol) but even I found climbs that I could do!

    Miss 12 thought it was going to be a pretty short visit (as I usually can't complete anything) but she was super impressed they had boulder problems at my skill level lolololol.

    The staff were fab, the food was great and the climbers were friendly, all in all, a great way to wile away a few hours (and burn some calories to boot!)

    Really cozy atmosphere with super friendly staff and cats! I'd recommend it to anyone ♥️ Ordered a coffee aswell and it tasted great with very cute cat-related presentation. Definitely coming back again ☺️
