Bah Humbug! Fest at Peterborough Arena

20th December -30th December

For 10 days only, Bah Humbug! is at Peterborough Arena covering 100,000 sq ft with over 40 attractions and inflatables and today The Knight Tribe came to visit.

One ticket, one price – 4 hours of unlimited family fun. There are two sessions a day 12-4 pm or 5-9 pm

We arrived at the venue for 12pm and was given our wristbands which allowed us to go on the rides how ever many times as we wanted. My kids had been very excited on the build up to this and I was just as eager to see what they had to offer, especially so I could tell all my lovely readers about it.

The attractions

My children are 4, 6 and 13 years old and there was plenty of rides for all of them to go on together or on their own. With the inflatables they had everything from crazy golf to slides and Obstacle courses, bouncy castles, Air tennis, football shoot, basketball shoot, giant wipe out stepping stones which you will find something suitable for all the family.

There are also so many rides there for all the family to enjoy too. Lydia went on the Moondancer with her cousins at least 10 times and I am actually surprised that she wasnt sick like I almost was, lol.  you can view the full list of rides here. 

Emily’s favorite was the inflatable course, even if she did face plant it and split her lip which involved a trip to first aid where she was helped by a lovely paramedic called Trish, she cleaned her up, made her laugh and gave her lots of cuddles before handing me back a smiley little princess.

Leo as most of you know has cerebral palsy and if it wasn’t for the fact he was sat down in a bumper car for 2 hours solid as this was his favourite ride I think he would of really struggled from the lack of seating.

I have a fractured foot which really started to hurt and I could not sit down anywhere inside for a rest.

On the mobility note, only one ride Leo struggled with and that was the crazy Bulls and that was only because he could not physically pull his body up and lift his leg over but uncle Stephen gave him a helping hand and Leol

Mimanaged to stay on longer than him.

 

Like any fairground there has to be 2p machines and Bah humbug! fest did not fail on this. The kids loved having a play and better still they didn’t seem to be rigged like the seaside ones because the kids kept winning the prizes and those coins were dropping.

The only things that are not included in the ticket price are food/drink and the prize games, so if you are planning on buying food or having a go on the games then bring cash with you as it is cash-only. The prize game prices ranged from £2 to £3.50 a go, so again that was quite steep.

I am not sure if that is Peterborough Arena’s doing or Bah humbugs! but £5.50 for a cheeseburger is expensive, especially with 3 kids so try and get some lunch before you come or bring lots of snacks with you, I also brought drink bottles for the kids in my bag which saved me £££

Toilets are situated at the entrance outside and inside the venue and are kept very clean.

The Entertainment

You can meet Peppa and George who come out at certain times. Peppa starts at 13.00pm and then George comes out at 13.30 and then again at 14.00 and 14.30 and so on till 4pm.

Emily got to meet them both so she was a very happy little bunny, her favorite characters in one place and we didn’t even have to leave our town.

 

Over the next 9 days there will be different character appearances from Paw patrol, Pj masks and Peppa Pig which you can check the full details and dates out here.

On the stage next to the meet and greet The little mix experience were performing live on stage and they were absolutely brilliant, originally when we first entered we could hear singing and I honestly thought they had the album playing in the background but it was them warming up. Lydia loved showing off some dance moves in the middle of the stage.

They will be performing everyday throughout the Fest.

If you are looking for a fun-filled family day out then you should definitley consider coming to the Bah humbug! fest.

The tickets are £20 each or a family ticket (2 adults and 2 children) is £70 which I know seems a bit steep but if you factor in how much the fair costs per ride, £2 sometimes £2.50 each for a 30 second ride then £20 for unlimited rides is justifiable and I would definitely pay to come back next year.

    Looks like a great day out, apart from the lack of seating for you and Leo xx
