Log raft @Playmobil Funpark

I’m no Gremlin but the sight of water makes me churn — add a log raft to it and I’d probably run away. Had I not been tasked to take photos, I would have gone to the farther end of the man-made river.

It’s a good thing though that the kids got their adventurous attitude from their Dad…everyone’s aboard except me! ^_^

 And what do you know? There was a kid who fell down into the water, good thing she can swim!

Playmobil Funpark, 6 years after

By on August 20, 2011

 

For the kids, visiting their grandparents means fun…Aside from their oma’s cooking (grandmom) they enjoy walking around the place and swimming at the nearby pool. There’s also almost always a mention of Playmobil Funpark. It’s just a few minutes from their place. Just like before, dad-in-law would bring the first batch there (car is small for all of us) then come back for the second. First batch this time were mom-in-law, daughter and our youngest. Kuya C (my older son) stayed behind and went with hubby and I next. It was unusual since he is my mom-in-law’s favorite and he would always go with her without a doubt when invited.

The last time I was there was 6 years ago and I posted about it here…look at the photo of my 2 older kids in that post…They were then 2 and 4! Now, they’re 8 and 10…I was pregnant then with my youngest but he’s 5 now…I specifically asked them to pose – the two older kids together as a comparison to how young they were when we went. Although they went here 2 summers ago without me – only with my in-laws, I never saw photos.

Little boy wasn’t in the mood for photos, Daddy has to convince him to. The place is as colorful as I remember, Playmobil giant figures multiplied in number, a lot more water-play sections were added, there’s a mini-golf course now and if you haven’t been to our new blog, please do, we’re having a giveaway there.

We did a lot of stuff, kids played to their heart’s content and I took photos as long as the battery lasts. Will show them here as the days progressed. This is surely another trip where hubby and I released our inner child. 🙂

The place is not only fun it was also very scenic. It rained a bit in the morning but the sky was a lovely blue at noon.

(pardon the English, I was so lazy so I translated this mostly from the German website and didn’t do editing lol – all photos mine)

“The little ones can live out their fantasies in this oversized PLAYMOBIL world, while  mom and dad enjoy the relaxed atmosphere.” Dream games of long ago… comes true in a mighty castle. Watchtower dungeon, underground secret passages, mirrors and a throne room to bring girls and boys exciting pastime like the knights of old ‘. . .so goes the description of the park in German.

True enough, the kids were playing like live Playmobil dolls/figures in lifesize Playmobil ships, castle, farm, indian village and treehouses.

The kids enjoyed touring this Park as promised. We rode the ship, we went up the towers.

 

The pirate’s flagship in the middle of big pirates lake is close to nature and offers large and small privateers a high play. In exciting and real thing, the self-protection ability of dealing with anxiety and overall coordination of basic activities is pulling, crawling, trained hiding and climbing.

When rafting, waiting line could be longer. The reason is that the number of rafts according to the size of the lake is limited.

Tip: Early morning in the first hour after the opening of the park and in the hour before closing experience, is less busy.

Ideal for boarding the pirate ship for wheelchair users:

Rolli-raft (the presence of a companion strictly necessary!)

Tip:
Dryer: Located opposite the dock at the main entrance. Coins for the dryers can be asked from the staff on Piratensee – for free.
Towels: You will receive a deposit at the service center at the Fun Park shop.
Borrowed clothing: if there are lots of people drying up their clothes, you can rent some (Sweat-Shirt/Jogging-Hose)

We’ve always been familiar with Lego, those colorful interlocking plastic bricks we make into castles and houses of our dreams. Unknown to us was Playmobil; the German counterpart (Lego is from Denmark).

Like Lego, Playmobil has released a variety of themes including town and city, space, robots, pirates, trains, Vikings, castle, dinosaurs, undersea exploration, and wild west. It was our version of 3D scaling.
