Things to do with children in Belfast
Whether it’s rainy or sunny outside, people are always looking for ideas for things to do in Belfast, especially if the children are off school or you just need entertainment on a rainy afternoon.
Belfast has a lot to offer including museums, parks, soft play, cinemas and leisure centres – but have you tried one of Belfast’s newest leisure offerings at Cityside Retail Park (aka Yorkgate).
The complex now offers more than just shopping with activities including Movie House Cinemas, Gym Co, Funky Monkeys, Galaxy Bingo as well as The Lost City Adventure Golf.
There are lots of restaurants and shops within the complex – so it’s easy to bring the family down for the day, catch a movie, play a round of golf and grab a meal before getting your shopping to take home. For convenience, we also offer a wide selection of food options that the whole family can enjoy.
If you are bringing the car, there are plenty of free car parking spaces within the complex which can be found right beside the M2/M3 intersection at York Street. Cityside Retail Park is also easily accessed by public transport – so take the family on a train ride to Yorkgate Train Station or get the bus as an added adventure.
If you and your family haven’t tried adventure golf before, The Lost City Adventure Golf is perfect for adults and children of all ages and abilities.
We have a range of putters in different sizes, so from toddlers to teenagers to grandparents – everyone can have a go!
Our Explorer Falls course is pushchair friendly – so no need to leave the tiny ones at home. It is also accessible for wheelchairs with drop down curbs to allow easy manoeuvring around the course.
Children (big and small!) will love our two 18 hole courses, Sunken Skull Ridge and Explorer Falls. Both are rainforest themed and indoors, so even if it is pouring or freezing outside, at The Lost City Adventure Golf you and the family can be cosy and warm.
Feature dramatic special effects and colourful decorations that keep providing surprises right until the last shot is taken! Navigate moving rocks and avoid the Bengal tiger, dodging lightning storms and fearsome snakes along the way. Watch out for the alligator and the giant waterfall – and be rewarded with a piece of Inca Gold for your efforts.
We know that travelling with the family can be like moving house, so we offer trolleys to help carry coats and bags with you around the course.
Our family ticket means a visit doesn’t have to break the bank and we have reduced rates for under 12’s and 5 and under as well as students and senior citizens – so why not bring the extended family?!
We are open 10am-10pm every day, so are ready for the early starters or the late risers.
You can book tickets online, or give us a call on 028 9099 5118.
So if you need to fill the school holidays, a Saturday, Sunday or a Bank Holiday – come on down to Cityside Retail Park and enjoy a session of golf before relaxing with a good movie and a beautiful meal.
There is so much to choose from – you are sure to find something to suit all the family.
