For those of you who are still on leave and want to do something for the whole family, then I suggest you visit Sugar Rush Park in Ballito. This attractive spot incorporates adventure, adrenaline and family fun. I recently visited the park and loved every moment. Here is a list of activities suitable for the entire family.


For the children

This is where children let loose.The trampoline park is a 700 square meter facility covered with wall-to-wall trampolines, built entirely for entertainment and recreational purposes.There is a variety of different trampoline experiences catering to adults, teenagers and children. The jump park allows children to be free and enjoy themselves in a safe environment. With the holidays soon to be over, this is the perfect treat for children and a fun way to keep them occupied.
