Fun Galaxy – Family Fun day & Entertainment

Fun Galaxy – Family Fun day & Entertainment

Took me a minute but I finally made my way up Bernard Road and hit up the newest Family Entertainment spot FUN GALAXY.

What is Fun Galaxy you may ask? It’s an indoor amusement park that has a combination of rides, games and party rooms.

I knew Fun Galaxy had been open for a few months but I still wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Equipped with six rides in total including the Family Favorite “Bumper Cars”. It’s easy to see why this can quickly become the newest hang out.

I know what you are thinking, only six rides…Yea initially I thought well that’s pretty lame but then when I really got into it (and my pocket) it was not so bad after all. Have you ever been to Disney World and walked the theme park? It is exhausting going from ride to ride, line to line trying to cram it all in about 48 hours or less to get the most of your experience. Fun Galaxy was the perfect Sunday adventure with not too much rides, not too much lines and best of all not too much money and just enough family fun.

One of the best things I liked about Fun Galaxy was that there was no cover charge to enter. You simply just pay for your rides and/or games , food and get ready to have fun. For $15 your child is able to ride all of the rides one time or spend $2.50 per ride with the exception of the bumpers which was $3 per ride.  I choose the $15 option, seemed reasonable enough.

There are food and drinks on sale which were pretty standard as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not sure if this was the standard or not but parents we’re allowed to accompany younger kids on rides without having to pay for two tickets. This was a bonus for me! I also liked the fact that all rides were made for kids of all ages. Meaning I didn’t have to worry about my 2 year old being left out while my 6 year old had all the fun. They were able to ride all the rides together if needed (well maybe not the Pirate Ship but yea you get the idea…)

Fun Galaxy is open 7 days a week but I would check before going to confirm opening hours. Overall,  for the smiles on my daughters face this place is worth the tokens and more!

Splish Splash: Sun, Sand and Swim

Splish Splash: Sun, Sand and Swim

We are smack dab in the middle of summer and the holiday is just around the corner. For many of us this means going to the beach or enjoying some form of water activity.

Just like everyone else, my family and I indulge in some sort of adventure that involves water. Whether it be taking a trip to the beach or getting a day pass at a popular Hotel, splashing and soaking up some sun rays is a must!

It was not until recently (after watching Moana for the 100th) time I realized that even though we have been partaking in this tradition for years almost none of us can swim. I mean  4 out of 5 of us can not swim.

We live in an archipelago of islands. An island is a mass of land surrounded by water. We are surrounded by water and a large majority of the population cannot swim. Why I can’t swim is a very good question given the information I mentioned above.

Somehow despite my father being a great swimmer and even my husband I totally missed that life lesson.

Drowning is still one of the most common causes of accidental death among children, so being able to swim is an essential life saving skill, especially for us surrounded by water.

I tried to think of reasons why  many of us islanders don’t know how to swim. Here’s what I came up with:

  1. We are afraid of the water
  2. Our parents don’t know how to swim
  3. We probably don’t want to get our hair wet

Yea I know, I am not quite sold on those reasons either but they do have some truth to it (especially wetting my hair). Given this known fact I decided to bypass the ballet classes and get my daughter in the water. She’s 6 years old and currently learning how to swim. Aside from learning an important life skill, every Saturday she has the opportunity to bond with friends, gain health benefits and confidence.

You didn’t think I’d just throw her in the deep and hope she floats right?

Swim Classes come in all shapes and sizes. Some enroll infants and others wait until your kids are a bit older and then some are for adults only. The point is there are swim classes available or you can learn from that uncle who from Inagua and always bringing down fish.

Learning to swim can mean the difference between life and death! If you are serious please check links below.

Sea Waves Aquatic

 

Of course there are many more swim classes that are hosted privately and publicly and I encourage to explore them all.

Enjoy the Holiday and Be Safe!

Till next time..
