Plenty of fun planned for holiday

Have your say

EASTER egg hunts and activities will keep youngsters entertained at a South Yorkshire tourist attraction during the Easter break.

Magna Science Adventure Centre in Templeborough, Rotherham, has organised a series of events designed to be fun and educational during the fortnight break.

The hunts will be held along with workshops handling giant creepy crawlies from Animals In-Tuition.

More adventurous children can also seize the chance to ride down a zip wire at 25mph.

The Aqua-Tek play area – one of UK’s largest outdoor water play areas – will also be open from Good Friday, March 29.

It sits alongside the main play area which features trampoline nets, spinning bowls and twisted slides.

Richard Smith, Magna visitor manager, said: “Children and families can have great fun, but we aim to make it educational as well and encourage their interest in science and how things work.

“Our visitor numbers were up 20 per cent during the February half-term and we hope these extra activities will attract even more people.”

Magna also offers daily guided steel tours to explain the steel making process and show what life was life for steel workers.
