Best Things To Do & Days Out In Wigan

Make the most of the fun things to do in Wigan - there's lots to get the kids excited, from high ropes to go-karting and soft play.

Start your day off at the Three Sisters Race Circuit, where children over 11 and parents can race around the track in especially light and powerful go-karts. Who will be the family champion?

Strap on your roller-skates and get ready to rock to the music at Wigan Roller Rink, although you may be more like Bambi than Ashley Banjo at first! Perhaps a game of wits is more you thing? If so get into teams ready to battle it out at Quasar Wigan, the laser quest game full of atmosphere and adventure.

Use up some of that energy over at Oxygen Free Jumping Wigan, where all ages can bounce like Tigger from one trampoline to the next while parents put their feet up with a cuppa! A nice, relaxing touch to this Wigan family day out.

There are plenty of soft plays to choose from too, such as Gioco Play Centre – the largest in Wigan with slides, go-kart track, football pitch and much more.
