Need to get the tribe out of the house to burn off some energy? We’ve got you covered! Here are six of our favourite Central Coast activities for active and adventurous kids and teenagers.


1. Flip Out, Gosford

Flip Out Gosford is under new management (January 2019) and they’re upping the ante when it comes to high-energy fun. This indoor trampoline park has a wall runner, foam pit, Under 10s area and dodgeball section. For kids with boundless energy, Flip Out offers ninja classes where kids learn awesome tricks such as front flips, back flips and twisting skills to improve their agility, coordination and aerial awareness.

Plus, they run playgroup sessions for parents and tots aged 6 and under during school term.

2. Laserblast family entertainment centre, Charmhaven

Laserblast at Charmhaven is a family entertainment centre that’s home to three awesome activities within the one venue: laser tag, escape rooms, and new for 2019, a mini putt putt golf course.

Their new putt putt golf course (due to open in time for the 2019 April school holidays) is a UV space-themed 9-hole course. It’s just $5/person, four kids can take to the course at once and it’s for all ages.

Laser tag is a game the whole family can get involved in. Games start from just $10 at Laserblast. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for special deals too.

At the end of 2018 they launched a new family Escape Room – for kids aged 5+. It’s a heap of fun and a great way for kids to flex their brain muscles, problem solve and use teamwork skills. Playing in Puddles had a go: check out our review here.


3. FootGolf at Mangrove Mountain

FootGolf is the combination of soccer and golf played on a golf course, and trust us, it’s a whole lot of fun! The aim of the game is to kick a soccer ball into nine specially designed holes in as few kicks as possible. It’s perfect for pre-schoolers all the way up to teenagers – and adults too.
