New Inflatable Games and the Short & Sweet Horse Carriage Tour: Perfect for Young and Old DBN Family Kingdom1 will be bringing you brand-new inflatable games which are both fun and challenging for the body and mind. What’s more, parents can play with their children!
The 1,600 sq.ft. Bouncy Maze is decorated in vibrant colours and with dazzling patterns to create illusions and make it less easy to navigate. Apart from keeping time, staff members will set up checkpoints at different corners of the maze to see who can reach the exits via the most direct route. Children under 3 can be accompanied by their parents.
In Bouncy Hercules, participants tied to a giant rubber band will try to beat the pull of the rubber band to run and touch the finishing point with their hands. Having explosive power and being swift is considered to be essential for winning the game!
Another must-try activity is the Short & Sweet Horse Carriage Tour2, bringing a relaxing ride through the European-style architectures and fascinating scenery in north Discovery Bay. The carriage is to be drawn by two Percheron mares, each with unique features and characters. Your children can learn first-hand more about the horses by inquiring with the horses’ handlers. There are also other classic games and challenges in store for the children! Don’t miss DBN Family Kingdom, in which everyone can get closer to the nature and breathe in some fresh air. Both you and your children will have a chance to exercise your body and mind, not to mention the opportunity of indulging in the scrumptious food and unusual shopping experience on the oceanfront.
