Ball pits, booze and burns

Tuesday, 25 April 2017

Are you in your twenties? Do you enjoy getting drunk? Are you 100% convinced that this whole adulting thing isn't for you? Do you like slides? If the answers to the following were all yes then keep reading. 

PLAY ZONE!! The answer to all your problems. 

Me and Tania decided to have a mini road trip to Portsmouth from Brighton one wild Friday night, pop punk playlist at the ready and snacks in both hands. So it wasn't as spontaneous as it sounds, we had to pre-book and we had planned to go.  

I feel like I should explain what Play Zone is, basically it's an adult soft play with ball pits, things that spin, netting, stuff to climb, stuff to swing off and slides, slides and more slides. I actually think it's for kids but on Tuesday and Friday nights they open it after hours, 8 - 11, for grown up kids to play and get drunk. Let's face it, it's a prefect combination. 

We rocked up fashionably late at 9pm and stayed until it closed. Drinks were buy one get one free from 8 - 9:30, so after a lap and a few slides we went to get drinks but only just missed the deal, literally by minutes. Which to be fair, wasn't a big deal as I think the drinks were pretty cheap at £2 / £2.50. I had a blue slush puppy with a 25ml shot on vodka in it.  

The play area itself consists of 5 slides, surrounded by 3 levels of fun. They have a rainbow group slide which is the slow slide, a slide where you end up in a ball pit, a mysterious black out slide and a HUGE red slide with two different levels of steepness. We did go on all of them but we weren't brave enough for the highest level slide until the end of the evening. It was so daunting but soooooo fun. I still can't believe the guy the went down on his stomach and then stood up at the end and slid, it was obviously not his first rodeo.


We filmed a ton when we were there for Tania's youtube channel, which I will link when it's live. It was so fun and I will going back for sure. Let me know if you're down via social media and we can plan an adventure.

DISCLAIMER - make sure you wear comfy clothes because I got a slide burn the size of a yum yum down my back. 

*If you follow me on twitter you will know making gif's on Tania is one of my favorite things to do. 

Harry Potter Studio Tours - The Forbiddon Forrest

"I solemnly swear I am up to no good"

If you're 20 something, you probably love Harry Potter as much as me. It's just so magical, everything about it makes me happy; the characters, the creatures, the spells, just everything. I am not even jealous of their fictional lives at all ... nope not one bit.  

My little smoosh Zoey was turning 21 and has been asking for ages to go to the Harry Potter Studio tours in Watford. As a surprise me and Michelle booked tickets for us three to go. I am awful at keeping secret, it stresses me out and gives me anxiety but I did it, I am super proud of myself but I did it, FOR 2 AND A HALF MONTHS MAY I ADD. Her reaction was the cutest thing and made it all worth it (the videos on my Instagram). She had full on tears in her eyes and everything. Now that is happiness. 

I've been before, but I haven't been in over 4 years and there were so many new things. The Hogwarts express and the new area The Forbidden Forest, it had only been open a week. 

The forest was awesome, I won't give too much away encase you're planing on going any time soon ... sorry if you have me on snapchat, I got carried away and probably ruined it for you. It was so cool though, they had Buckbeak, who I couldn't get to stand up so he was bowing at me, so obviously I had to bow back. They have Aragog which is probably the coolest part and I hate spiders. I had to close my eyes on the ride in Florida when he showed up. There's also a little surprise in forest too which I thought completely made it. 

Can we just talk a second to appreciate my butter beer ice cream. It was amazing and I got to take the little pot home as a memento.

I am not sure how long this has been open as it wasn't when I last visited but you can now go into the Dursely's house!! There were letters EVERYWHERE!! It was really cleaver and looked absolutely perfect. 

We then finished our day with a GBK in the mall close by. I had the satay chicken burger, skinny fries with baconaise. Pure heaven. 

I had the best day with my two favorite muggles. If you haven't been to the Harry Potter studio tours I highly recommend going. It look us 3 hours to go round the whole thing and I love every magical second.
