Crazy golf

Meadowhall has a whole host of exciting things to do for families over the half term.

Fancy a spot of golf?Valley Centertainment has two adventure courses taking you from the boat at the Caribbean Quay, through mysterious sea caves before being marooned on a desert island full of exotic palm trees and mystical jungle ruins.

You can also see exotic animals, statues and carvings along the way.


Playmania Sheffield has both soft play and role play under one roof offering an interactive garage and supermarket along with much more.

Pumpkin picking in Sheffield

Head down to a secret spooky area of the animal farm in Graves Park, Sheffield, this Halloween and choose from 100s of pumpkins and pick your own to take home to carve. This will cost £3.00 per pumpkin. You can also make a day of it and visit the farmyard animals while you’re there.

The event will run across Saturday, October 30 and Sunday, October 31.

Hollywood Bowl

Ten pin bowling is great all round fun whether you’re with family, friends or work colleagues. With state-of-the-art bowling alleys, delicious food and drink and awesome arcades, we’re sure you’ll be entertained.

Get active together

With 17 climbing walls to tackle, along with slides, swings, obstacles and a soft play area for the little ones, you can go on an adventure at Rock Up.

If an indoor inflatable theme park is more your thing, you could take on the digital challenges and games at Air Haus.
