SPACE Exclusive sessions
These sessions are exclusively for SPACE members, but there are more sessions available if the dates / times don't work for you.
If your child has energy to burn, this is the activity for you! Doughnutting is basically walking up a hill and then sliding down in an inflatable ring and repeat.
All participants must wear gloves, sleeves and full length trousers, the surface is very abrasive. If the weather is warm, thin layers are highly recommended. We will be putting wax on the bottom of the rings for anyone that wants to slide faster, so please wear old clothes.
This activity is for anyone age 5+. Siblings are very welcome to participate in sessions.
