Peppa Pig...

What a brilliant day! Things started well, with us being only the 10th car in Paulton Park's gargantuan car park. After scanning our digital tickets, we were sent to queue (yes the queuing started that early), but were rewarded by being only the second family to walk through the gates. We headed straight for Peppa Pig World after a conversation with a family who'd been many times, they gave us the inside information on which rides accumulated the biggest queues (Miss Rabbit's helicopters and Windy Castle FYI)! Honey wasn't the biggest fan of queueing and kept saying 'it's my turn now' but with short turns and quick changeovers, you could tell that the park were doing everything they could to keep the queues moving. We were lucky enough to visit on a beautiful day, so Honey was able to take full advantage of the Muddy Puddle water play area. Luckily, Honey's wonderful childminder had told me not to forget her sunsuit as otherwise we'd have had a very soggy toddler for the rest of the day as we definitely wouldn't have been allowed to miss it out! We also ventured into the main park and found loads of rides and play areas suitable for Honey, her favourite being a little seal ride which she had to go on by herself! Top tips from me would be: Try to go outside school holidays, our visit was busy but not as crowded as I imagine it will be in a few weeks time and there were lots of things that we didn't need to queue for. Arrive early, it's easier to remember where you parked the car and you get to be first in! Take lots of drinks and snacks to keep little ones going and to use as distraction techniques in queues. Keep calm, this is hard, especially when your toddler is whinging and moaning because they're hot/tired/want a go now but you will all have a much nicer time if everyone takes a deep breath!
