Top 10 Fun Places

Chris’ personal picks from places in the world that he has visited.

Orlando, Florida: The Theme Park Centre of the Universe, there’s one for every day of the week with everything from Disney’s unique “imagineering” to Universal Orlando’s tributes to popular culture and Seaworld’s incredible animal experiences.

Branson, Missouri:  Entertainment is the name of the game in this city of over 100 Stage Shows – every one is good clean family fun that you could take your Granny to see….

Las Vegas, Nevada: There is nowhere on the planet where it is quite so true that “anything goes”. So its just as well that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!

Queenstown, New Zealand: This is where the fine art of bungy jumping was invented. Dedicated to soft adventure of all kinds including skydiving, bungy jumping, jetboating, canyon swinging, whitewater rafting, parapenting, heli-skiing...

Legoland, Denmark: The original and still the best – this is every little kid’s dream… and some big kids too. If it can be built with lego bricks it is here – as well as thrill rides galore.

Santa Claus trip, Lapland: Taking a wide-eyed 4 year old to a land where the sun creeps over the horizon for just an hour to illuminate Santa Claus, sleigh, reindeer and Xmas presents – is a very special experience for kids and parents alike.

Club Med Sandpiper, Florida: Of all the Club Med Resorts, this is perhaps their most successful family resort with the most fun Kids Club I or my kids have ever encountered. Circus school is a must!

Rotorua, New Zealand: The soft adventure capital of North Island, NZ, this is the place to do all kinds of crazy things; my favourite: zorbing – careering down a hillside inside a giant transparent plastic ball!

Banff, Alberta – snowbiking: One of the most hilarious and ridiculous afternoons I have ever spent was sitting on a tricycle on skiis, hurtling down the slopes in Sunshine Village. Two words: try it!

Xel-Ha, Mexico: This eco-park on the Mayan Riviera has something for everyone – it’s a natural aquarium, water park, ancient Mayan site, soft adventure playground and more…all set in a verdant jungle.
