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!

All About Summer Camp Guide – 2017

Singing  “It’s summer” in my Olaf voice from Frozen!

Can you imagine another school year has just whirled on by and while I am rejoicing for the break of not having to iron uniforms (I absolutely HATE ironing) I also cringe at the thought of now having to find a safe and fun environment for my kid during the summer break (again)!

The Easter Break – Camp and Holiday Fun

The Easter Break – Camp and Holiday Fun

I received a letter from both Navy and Dilly’s school reminding me that Easter Break was fast approaching. I instantly got excited! No more uniforms to iron, no more bags to pack and I can finally sleep a few minutes later because there will be no traffic!!

Yay right?!, Wrong! I instantly went into a panic because now I need a babysitter! For about a week in half, maybe two, I don’t know I threw the note somewhere, I need someone to make sure these kids don’t starve and burn down the house.

I know other parents out there share my plea. It’s a never ending cycle. I pay school fee then I pay babysitters. Grammy’s now a days still work and if they don’t, they have plans.. Go ahead ask your mom I betcha she has something to do!

So now what? I thought about taking a sabbatical but couldn’t quite find a legit reason. Then I thought I’d just bring them to work hide them under my desk and feed them crackers in exchange for complete silence. I thought about the kinds of kids I have and instantly knew that won’t work, so now plan C.

Easter Camp!! The Holy Grail has surfaced! I managed to list a few below for you. If interested just click photo and it will lead you to the camp of your dreams, or not. Entirely up to you!

The Holiday Carnival 

The Holiday Carnival 

Let’s talk about the Carnival.

No not that Carnival!

This carnival!

For as long as I can remember every year around the Christmas break the “Carnival” comes and give us Bahamians something to do other than go to Junkanoo.

Yay right!! I mean we can’t go the beach all year round!

Not gonna lie I use to look forward to the carnival every year as a child. I mean the rides, the games, the candy apple and the PIZZA!! The carnival was the spot! It was so good sometimes my family and I went more than once.

There was nothing more magical than riding past that ole beat up sports center and seeing those lights in the distance.

Now that I have pickneys of my own that holiday tradition is still carried through except this time I could barely do half the stuff I did when my dad took me.

I mean the popcorn was $4.00!! That’s a value meal at Wendy’s 😑.

The entrance fee was the same for both me and my six year old and if my one year old wasn’t in a stroller or held up I would’ve paid for her too…ugh no 🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽

Once inside the same ole magic reappeared from when I was a child until I reached to the ticket counter.

$1.25 a ticket.. Like a bus ride is the same price as a carnival ticket. But let’s continue…

The carnival tried to offer some kind of sensibility to this madness.

Insert the family sheets.  I got 26 tickets which I figured would be more than enough for a six year old, right?

So of course we get to the dinky fun rides and all of them are minimum 3 tickets… (There goes my sheet!)  The kids rides barely lift half a foot off the ground but I digress. Round and round my daughter went, circle after circle for nearly 5 minutes or more (maybe less I don’t know I was dizzy and over it )

Believe it or not there are about 25 rides in that place one for every age group, not including the games, the food stall and let’s not forget the Over and Under Table.

By far the best ride my six year old went on was the obstacle course! I admit it was pretty cool and I wanted to go in more than once. Totally worth the $ 3.75.


And then there was this guy. I mean 4 tickets for this bs… Stay away from Mr Wiggle Wurm. He did nothing! Like more circles 😑

After spending $4.00 on popcorn I had to find the lady with them chicken and fries. I made a bad call earlier and I couldn’t mess up again!

In between we caught a few fish for $5.00 per game. Got a few stuffed animals , popped some balloons for $10.00 (3 darts) hit up the pizza lady and ugh yea!

Carnival experience was complete!

Times have changed, the price tag certainly has changed but the Carnival still boasts a great family experience.

So even if you didn’t win big at the “Big Bang” there’s still something to look forward to and that’s family time!

Till next time
