Last weekend we were kindly invited along to Valley Centertainment for a day of family fun. It was the day before Max’s birthday so the timing was perfect and we all had a fantastic time.
If you’re unfamiliar with Valley Centertianment, it’s a leisure park here in Sheffield that is full of fun things to do such as cinema, bowling, adventure golf, soft play, plus there’s lots of restaurants to choose from. It’s great for children and families but also for couples. Me and James used to go to the cinema and restaurants there regularly before we had the children, so it brings back a lot of memories for us.
We started our day with a trip to the cinema. The kids had been asking to see Coco for months so we decided to watch that. The film was brilliant, we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Although Max did cry at the end as it gets a little sad, bless him!
Cineworld Sheffield has a whopping 20 screens, including VIP Experience, IMAX, and regular live broadcasts of theatre and music. Sheffield is actually the largest of Cineworld’s cinemas, and one of the busiest cinemas in the UK.
A standard family ticket is priced at £30, find out more here.
After the cinema we headed over to Paradise Island Adventure Golf which is somewhere we’d never been before. There’s two courses and you can choose to have a go at both or just the one. We attempted both and although the kids technique could use a little improvement, they certainly gave it a good go!
We’ve got 2 adventure golf courses taking up over 14,000 sq/ft over 2 levels! This new adventure takes 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!
A family of four can play one course for £24 or two courses for £36. Visit there website for more information on pricing.
After the cinema and adventure golf it’s safe to say we were ready for some grub. So we headed over to Chiquito which is a favourite of mine. Centertainment is home to lots of other restaurants such as Frankie & Benny’s, Bella Italia, Five Guys, and many more. But Mexican food was definitely calling our name, and it was fitting after seeing Coco which is actually set in Mexico!
The kids were given activity packs when we arrived which was great for keeping them occupied while we browsed the menus and waited for our food.
If your kids are fussy eaters and aren’t too keen on spicy food then worry not as there’s plenty of options available on the Chiquito kids menu. Max went for sausages and chips and Evie had pizza. Both went for the chocolate brownie and ice cream for dessert, which looked delicious.
I opted for chicken enchiladas with mild sauce – you get to choose how spicy you want your food to be and also what meat you would like, which I thought was great.
James chose a few dishes from the street food menu and for dessert we shared some churros with chocolate dipping sauce as we were both stuffed!
Check out Chiquito’s full menu here.
We had a fantastic family day of fun at Valley Centertainment and can’t wait to go back again. There’s just so much to do, no two visits are the same. Next time we’re thinking Peter Rabbit at the cinema, followed by bowling at Hollywood Bowl and finally burgers at Five Guys. What would your perfect family day look like?
