Bugz Family Playpark is one of the top things to do for kids in Cape Town. If you need to entertain 2- to 10-year-old kids, march them straight here. This fun family attraction is the largest play park in the Western Cape, offering an enormous outdoor playground and a wonderful indoor play area.
The colourful variety of pedal cars, jumping castles, rowing boats, swing horses, mini-tractor rides and a choo-choo train is certain to tire out little pipsqueaks in no time. Older and more adventurous scamps can giddy up on the ponies or zoom up the tracks on quad bikes. On sunny days they can even go slip sliding down the inflatable waterslide.
Most of the rides are kid-powered – giving small folk plenty of exercise in a fun and natural way. Bugz has two large sandpits with colourful jungle gyms, slides, swings and numerous play apparatus to crawl under or climb over. There are also delightful playhouses, a tree house and even a castle, and if there are no parties in progress, kids are free to romp around here to their heart’s content. (Bugz is also a popular birthday party venue.)

A first for Africa. Cool Runnings is a 1.25km Toboggan Track where speed freaks can reach 40 km per hour on our downhill steel half-pipe. The automatic pulley drags your sled to the top of the hill, then woohoo, off you go. All you have to do is steer and regulate your speed with the easy hand-brake.
Tried and tested all over Europe, Cool Runnings tobogganing is safe, fun and a thrill for the whole family. All ages welcome (under eight year olds go tandem with an adult). We know grown ups use kids as an excuse to come to Cool Runnings, but no excuses are needed.
One ride and you’ll be hooked.
