Hi. Thinking of going to Milton Keynes with friends over Christmas. We both have children between 14 and 8. Other than bounce trampoline centre, the snow dome and indoor sky diving are there any other activities that you can suggest we could pack two days out with? Gullivers world is too young now. What "secret treasures" does Mk have? Thanks very much.

I visited there with similar aged kids a couple of weeks back, as well as sledging we went to Planet Ice for skating. Haven't done that in many years! Apparently it's newly reopened after a refurb.

Oh and Bletchley Park of course, which was very interesting.

Where did you go sledging - in the dome?

is there only one rock climbing place in MK?

I cannot find it now but was there somewhere that did bowling but under neon lights in the dark? Thanks.
