A little out of the way, but a fun-filled water wonderland for your children. Cedar Junction is an outside venue that is jam-packed with activities that will keep your kids entertained for hours. We’re talking pools, water slides, three mini trains on a 1,2km train track for you to ride, and so much more. There are lifeguards stationed at the pools to put your mind at ease. Parents can go ahead and book a venue, kick back, and have a braai or perhaps a picnic while the kids run around and have a blast. They might even make some new friends.
The theme park is open Monday to Friday from 10 am to 5 pm and Saturday to Sunday and public holidays from 9 am to 5 pm. The entrance fees are R80 per adult, and R60 per child (2 – 12 years). The entrance fee includes access to train rides, pedal boats, jungle gyms, swimming pools and waterslides, trampolines, jumping castles, and more.

Bounce – Menlyn Maine
A huge room covered with trampolines is a dream come true for a lot of kids out there. And you can make it a reality by hosting your child’s party at Bounce. With party packages for all ages, kids can jump straight into a day of fun with their friends. If you think jumping up and down for 2 hours sounds a bit boring, Bounce will change your mind pretty quickly.
It’s not just trampolines, after all. It’s basketball on trampolines, dodgeball on trampolines, adventure challenge courses on trampolines, and so much more. The kids will have a designated party host keeping an eye on them so that the parents can take a breather. The kids also get their own party venue to continue the fun once the 2-hour jumping is over. Parents can pre-book party packs and snacks for the kids to enjoy.
Though it’s a children’s paradise, Bounce doesn’t forget about the parents. Parents can sit back and relax in their own reserved area with pre-booked platters to nibble on while the kids have their fun.
