Unleash your competitive side, lace up those trainers and get ready to put your skills to the test, as we reveal the five sports and activity days out we love!

Discover the number one soft play in the UK, an inflatable obstacle course that parents can try too, or try skiing without flying to the slopes - will you be able to keep up with the kids? Get ready to spring into action, as as DOWTK Loves reveals the UK’s favourite sports and activity attractions worthy of a podium finish:

  1. Kidspace, Romford

    A day out at this soft play centre, Kidspace, is truly out of this world. It’s futuristic design is a breath of fresh air, and there are so many innovative gadgets that kids will love playing with: climb a beanstalk, shoot soft foam balls from cannons or take on the super cool sky trail. Kids will love rocketing around on the mini go-karts; there’s no better soft play to feel like you’re racing in the milky way, driving across saturn's rings and dashing between meteorites. With plenty of activities for both toddlers and older kids, this is a must visit for families.

  2. Kidzania, London

    Coming in at a close second is the remarkable world of KidZania London. This indoor city run by kids is a truly unique experience. With mini shops, and detailed props that are unrivalled by any other play centre, kids will be able to fully immerse themselves in role play and try lots of exciting careers on for size. Why not let your kid become an animator, surgeon or flight attendant for the day? It might just inspire a new career...

  3. Wacky World Inflatable, Lancashire

    This bouncing bonanza is a kid’s dream of a day out. Take a trip to Wacky World Inflatable and kids can tackle a Total Wipeout style obstacle course full of slides, climbs and incredible inflatables. This is perfect for kids looking to get sporty and, during separate sessions, brave parents can have a go too!

  4. Chill Factore, Manchester

    There’s no time to waste! Get your boots, gloves and warm coats on and take a trip to Chill Factore. No matter the season you can pop in and have fun in a real snow environment filled with ice cool activities. Take on the legendary luge, slide on a pair of skis or hop into one of the famous downhill donuts. At Chill Factore it’s a snow day every day!

  5. Mr Mulligan’s Lost World Golf, Stevenage

    With Mr Mulligan’s Lost World Golf we’ve found a hole in one. This crazy golf, set in an underwater themed paradise, is the home to a luminescent octopus and sunken submarine. Make your way through the course of the big blue sea and find out who in the family is the best underwater golfer. Now, who in your family is going to tee off first?
