Why you should plan your holiday activities … right now!

When the school holidays start, it feels like they’re going to stretch out forever. Next minute, they’re gone like so many forgotten dreams, and your to-do list of fun remains tragically unticked. The problem is you didn’t book all the cool stuff in advance for the kids to brag about once back at school! Here’s why you have to make sure your days off are filled with heaps of events.

By the time you read this, the clock’s already ticking

Holiday time is different to normal time. It moves at a terrifying speed, ripping through days like they’re minutes. If you don’t have a plan of action, you’ll end up squandering them. Plus, everyone else is feeling the same panic as you, which means they’ll all be trying to book the same places you are. Get in there first!

In Winter, you have to prepare for the weather

Suuuure, in Summer you might be all about those waterslides and lying in the park telling your friends what that cloud looks like. But as the temperature drops and the weather’s more miserable, your plans are better off having more of an “out of the freezing conditions” feel to them. So make sure you book places where you won’t have to cancel plans because of a little pesky rain.

Maximise efficiency with a one-venue plan

One of the biggest time-wasters in holiday mode is getting from place to place. Not only do you lose valuable moments in transit, it’s also kinda tiring to shuffle from location to location. Find a place and make the most of all it has to offer before moving on. Of course, at ZONE BOWLING you can bowl, fire lasers and play arcade games under the same roof. #nobrainer, right?

Get the most value for your dollarrrrrr

You gotta ask yourself: where can I get the most selfies for my limited holiday fun-times budget? Blowing it all on a giant cowboy hat might seem like a good plan, but really how many people are really checking the #enormousstetson hashtag? You’re better off spending that coin on a ZONE BOWLING School Holiday Ultimate Fun Pass, which gives you two games, shoe hire, 10 Arcade Bucks, a $7 return pass and a $10 cafe voucher (yummmm) and really make some people Insta-jealous.

Don’t forget to make time for refuelling

Another rookie mistake. You plan out all these activities, then realise nobody brought any snacks and everyone’s about to pass out from hunger. Never fear, ZONE BOWLING Café is here. Our Café is filled with fancy sliders, waffle fries, Nutella pizzas and plenty of sweet treats so go­­­­­­­­­­­­od you’ll forget it’s the dead of Winter. And you know where that is, right? Hint: it starts with “Z” and rhymes with “phone”.
