Fun family holiday entertainment



Fun family adventures to get up to this upcoming school break!

School’s out! Well, not yet, but they’re about to temporarily shut their doors for the Easter holidays, and this means you need to start thinking about fun kids activities you can do as a family. Keeping the young ones busy and happy during holidays is an essential part of their growth. So, you have a lot of planning and preparations to do in this regard. 

There are a lot of things to consider in your plans: the activities, the destination, the requirements or resources for the activities, outfits, food, transport and the weather. Your best option is choosing to do the school holiday activities at Canal Walk, where your only worry would be getting the kids out of the house at the proposed departure time. 

Here at Canal Walk, you’ll find several places for kids to play and places for entertaining activities to do as a family. Read on below to find out more about these activities. 

Nu Metro

Nu Metro cinema is one of the leading VIP cinemas in Cape Town. The story of Nu Metro goes back to 1932, originating in the heart of Johannesburg. Modern-day upgrades have ensured that the cinema introduces cutting-edge experiences in the form of Scene Xtreme and Scene VIP as an addition to the standard 2D and 3D experiences. These new experiences offer you a luxurious life which features reclining chairs, food and ultra-HD projections. There are a lot of family movie options you can choose from. There is a variety of animation, human adventure and comedy including Playing With Fire, Sonic the Hedgehog, Spies in Disguise, Arctic Justice, Dolittle, Frozen II, Jumanji: The Next Level, Mosely, Mulan, Onward and more on show. 

Century Karting

If you and your kids love the adrenaline rush, Century Karting is exactly the place you need to be. This indoor kart racing sport is accessible, super-exciting and doesn’t break the bank at all. 

There are four racing options to choose from: arrive and drive grand prix, endurance and special, and block. The height requirement for the arrive and drive option is 1.5 metres tall, while the other options are available to anyone. Beginner drivers get driving instructions, and if you’re not a beginner driver but require a refresh, they will be happy to assist you. All drivers receive a safety briefing, and a disposable hair net and helmet to protect them during the fun experience. The establishment maintains close supervision of all racing to ensure that no dangerous driving takes place.


Wonderland is indeed a wonderland for the young ones; a game centre where neon lights and arcade games live. When you enter Wonderland, you immediately find yourself facing several arcade games, including the classic games that even 90s kids or your inner child would love. Yes, including pac-man. 

Wonderland is like a beautiful scene of Stranger Things at Starcourt Mall. 

Final Thoughts

As you can see, with Canal Walk around, you won’t have to worry about fun things to do in Cape Town. The mall is not in short supply of cool and fun activities that you can do with your family, especially your kids who you should keep busy this upcoming holiday. 

And by busy, we mean the fun stuff, not the boring stuff they dread. They work hard enough in school, so holidays are meant to give them the time to unwind and relax. But you have to keep their brains and bodies stimulated with new things and experiences. The above list should give you plenty to think about, and the best thing is you can try out two activities in one day as they are under one roof!

There are a lot more of other activities and events that take place at Canal Walk, for both you and your kiddies. All you need to do is keep an eye on the events calendar, or sign up to the Kids World newsletter to stay informed.
