Parents often worry about the music that their children may be exposed to. However, the song that most strikes terror into the hearts of mums and dads contains nothing that would earn its creator a spell on the naughty step.
Alice Cooper’s School’s Out for Summer is as clean as a nun’s thoughts when it comes to sweary words but it still makes parents turn pale.
Switched-on mums and dads can nip school holiday boredom in the bud with today’s Big Deal for family passes to two of the most popular attractions at Scotland’s Theme Park in Strathclyde Country Park, Motherwell.
The deal includes four day passes to Amazonia. Scotland’s only indoor tropical rainforest comes complete with real live parrots, toucans, monkeys, snakes, bats, tarantulas, Caiman crocodiles and giant millipedes.
It’s fun; it’s colourful and, don’t tell the kids, it’s even educational. What’s more, the temperature inside Amazonia is a steady 27 Celsius; a reading which was last recorded in Scotland in about, oh let’s see, perhaps the mid-17th century?
As well as the family day pass to Amazonia, this Big Deal also gives a family day pass to the fiendishly tricky Devil’s Island Golf Course.
Eighteen holes of pirate-themed adventure golf so tricky that even Cap’n Jack Sparrow would think twice, the Devil’s Island will have would-be Tiger Woods playing over water, through sunken bridges, into caves and even through the Pirate’s Galleon.
If you want to be prepared for the first, faint cry of ‘I’m bored’ then today’s school summer holiday rescue package is:
£18 for 4 ×1 day passes for Amazonia and Devil’s Island Golf Course at M&D’s, Scotland’s Theme Park; a 54% saving on the standard £44
