A bit about Ottawa’s own Funatorium Explorium

Posted by andrea tomkins in: - Ottawa for kids|Easy ways to make kids happy

Mark your calendars! There is a really interesting event coming up that Ottawa families might enjoy and I wanted to post about it here. It’s called the Funatorium Explorium, a catch-it-before-it’s-gone kind of occasion (like when the circus comes to town!), and an fun opportunity for parents and kids to hang out together and try some new things.

There are four areas to explore at the Funatorium:

Play Space
Hands-on fun for parents and kids to play together and compete against each other. Rock climb, Bodyzorbs (I am so doing this), Spider Climbing, joust, obstacle course, Lego building … and much more.

Shared Experience Centres
A chance to try something totally new. Learn how to perform magic tricks, bust a Jackie Chan move, or try your hand at creating your very own cartoon.

Fun Central
Performances of all kinds, from science to magic.

Marketplace
Family friendly exhibitors. Touch, taste, try and buy!

Interested? Are you a family with kids over the age of four? Have four or five hours free to devote to having some family fun? The Funatorium will be taking place February 18-20, 2012 at the CE Centre (4899 Uplands Drive) on Saturday 9-7, Sunday 10-5, and Family Day Monday from 9-5.

You can buy tickets online at $19.99 each or $75 for a family of 4 (+HST). Use my discount code if you’re buying! Enter FISH2 to save an extra $2 per ticket. :)

You can find out more about the Funatorium Explorium on the official website.
