The event started at 2 pm for us; there were two slots some for 9.30 earlier time
It was the first day this event was open, and as to be expected some issues hopefully will be addressed for the next couple of days that the event is on.
With wristband allowed in and out of the main attraction for food.
Buggies and pushchairs are fine thankfully as I don’t think for, four hours Evie could have stood up.
I still point negatives quickly –
– No time limits for kids, making rather long ques
– Not much for under 5s,
– A lot of selling stands – so be prepared for the sale pitches
Keira was able to go roller disco and climb the wall the safety aspects showed with Kingswood camp you can see they are on top of that.
Meeting Tiana, she enjoyed that
I do think events like that should have an area where the kids que for meet and greets.
As a lot of children typically got excited and wanted pictures with her, Keira was waiting, and other kids jumped in front which upset Keira, she finds waiting, and numbers before her turn, being autistic frustration is easy for her.
The event was nice; I was upset over one thing; there was a car at the back of the room sectioned, and I was thinking ok a random car? Upon closer inspection, it was my beloved Bumblebee from Transformers, so upset to see him there and not on Exhibit how Optimus Prime was. There wasn’t space for proper photographs to be taken with Optimus Prime, was a case of a quick snap in the hope of getting a decent picture.
To see monkey play on the little train and the little play area was lovely, just a shame there wasn’t any chairs to sit on, but I can see from the safety aspect so it for me wasn’t a massive issue.
Upon these positives and negatives, I’m sure that the next event taken on will be a lot better experience for parents and children.
