There are also several attractions in the area suited to younger children. 

Adventure Wonderland is an all-inclusive theme park offering indoor and outdoor adventure play areas, animal attractions and fairy-tale activities, as well as the main attraction of rides to suit all ages.

Oceanarium in Bournemouth is a highly rated aquarium, featuring marine life from all around the world such as sea turtles and stingrays. The standout feature is undoubtedly the shark tunnel- where people can walk through the middle of the shark tank through a Plexiglas tunnel. This is always a massive hit with children.

Lastly Sharky's Play Zone is a good place to retreat to if the weather is not so good. This place zone has a four level play frame along with a laserzone maze and large mini racing circuit, Sharky's is enjoyed by children and can give parents some welcome rest for a few hours.
