Extreme Fun at Xtremeland

by Gillian Gibson

Even before you step inside the expansive Xtremeland, the sounds of excited screaming and adrenalin-fuelled laughter greet your eardrums, and the whirling twirling carousel horses, flashing neon lights, stylised graffiti, high-wire activities, and bright signs beckon you towards the bewildering wonderland beyond.

Xtremeland offers a little bit of everything. It is an amusement park,  a fairground, a gaming arcade and an adrenalin junkie’s paradise. You’ll even find a toddler haven on the mezzanine level. The resulting space provides kids and families, young and old, with a domain to enjoy.

A plethora of exciting attractions

Attractions include high-adrenaline rides such as the Drop and Twist Tower, Maverik (a twisting and flipping flat ride), Jump Around (a high-speed rotating ride), Dance Party 360 (a high-speed rotating and flipping ride), and a giant three-storey-high slide. It also offers gentler rides, including a carousel, a family swing, bumper cars, the North Pole water boat ride, Taga J (a rotating inflatable), and Convoy (a car-track ride). More physically demanding activities such as a high-wire adventure course, a trampoline park, and four climbing walls, including Face to Face, a timed climbing challenge between two climbers. There are also arcade games and machines, kiddies character and simulated rides, and video gaming activities, such as Dark Ride, a 3D game for multiple players.

The icing on the Xtremeland cake, for mums with kids of varying ages, is Toddler Land, a giant soft play area for toddlers. For children up to 120cm, Toddler Land is six-level-high soft play with tunnels, multi-shaped steps, ramps, slides of varying sizes and shapes, swings, obstacles to clamber over, under, around, and in and out of, wall puzzles, and a soft ball arena with air cannons and a ball fountain. If that were not enough, connected by a rope bridge on the sixth floor, a second soft play area is available for those brave enough to cross the bridge. There is even a small area, outside of the main climbing structure, with clamber-on toys for the smallest of adventurers. Playtime is unlimited and children 105cm and above are free to roam by themselves. On entering Toddler Land all children must be signed in, and a parents name and number provided. No child may leave without being signed out.

Numerous arcade games in the park can be played to win tokens. The tokens can be exchanged at a redemption desk for an array of prizes, from plastic knick-knacks to dolls, remote control cars and drones. Redemption tickets expire one year from last day of use.

Height restrictions

All of the rides and activities at Xtremeland require participants to be of a certain age or height. The majority of rides and activities, if age and heights restrictions are met, can be entered by children on their own. However, some require children to be accompanied by an adult if they are under a certain height or age. For example, the following rides and activities require adult participation for children who shorter than or younger than these limits.

  • Toddler Land, under 105cm
  • Convoy Ride, younger than 4 years old
  • North Pole Ride, under 90cm
  • Bumper Cars, under 120cm
  • Jump Around Ride, 4–8 years old
  • High Wire Adventure Course, 115–140cm

Children are able to enter the park on their own. However, it is worth noting that if you do leave your children within the park unaccompanied, there is nothing to prevent them from leaving the park, i.e. gates and barriers, security bracelets. They only venue inside the park that requires children to be signed in and out is the soft-play area, Toddler Land.

The park adheres to all fire and safety regulations and is inspected on a regular basis. Emergency exits are signposted, security cameras are provided at strategic locations and security personnel can be found on the site.

Xtremeland is a busy venue in the late afternoon to evening, especially on a Friday and Saturday. If you prefer a more peaceful visit you may want to consider dropping in during the morning or early afternoon, and during the week days.
