While our Easter Holiday Special is packed full of super local events, don’t forget to check out our Days Out Page too, it’s packed full of suggestions of places you might like to visit on a family day out.
Call before you go
As you will be aware, many classes, events and local businesses are temporarily cancelled or closed. While we are doing everything we can to keep you updated of Covid19 Local Updates on our webpage, it is extremely hard for us to stay on top of everything, or update every single listing on our site. Please call in advance if you are heading anywhere, just to ensure they are open.
Looking for activities to keep little ones entertained indoors? We have a whole new webpage dedicate to this here
Here at STAG Mumbler, we are always keen to hear your recommendations of things for our Mumblers to do during the holidays. If you have any suggestions, or you’re running an activity, simply drop us an email telling us all about it at email@example.com
Will you be king of the pins or queen of the gutter ball?
How could we build this fantastic centre without a bowling lane – and a boutique one at that.
‘Strike’ out and grab a ‘spare’ pair of friends for an evening out or book a lane for a lunchtime laugh or some fun family time.
Bowling is for everyone of all ages and because you’ll be right next door to the bar and diner you can focus on your game while enjoying drinks and snacks.
We have six full length lanes each for up to six people per lane. Just make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Who can bowl?
Whether you can strike every time or are giving it a go for the first time, it’s great fun for all.
If you’re an inline skater, scooter fan, skateboard addict or can’t get enough of life pulling stunts on two wheels, you’re going to love Summit Ride and Skate – North Yorkshire’s friendliest indoor skate park.
Complete beginners and pros will go mad for our mix of rails, ramps and pipes.
Here’s the techy bit. Our park has a 1.8m quarter pipe, a 1.5m street spine, a hipped street spine and hipped quarter-pipe, couple of jump boxes, a flatbank, grind boxes and rails.
Who will love Summit Ride and Skate?…..You gotta be 5 or over to be in the game.
Pop down to Summit Indoor Adventure on the first Thursday of the month and enjoy 2 hours in the indoor skate park for just £1. This offer is available between 4pm and 8pm. Remember to bring your scooter, skateboard or BMX plus your safety gear.
No need to book in advance just turn up and pay. Offer subject to availability so make sure you turn up early to get your place.

In response to ongoing advice and activity related to Covid-19 (also known as coronavirus) we are doing everything we can to provide a quality experience, ensure your safety and provide maximum flexibility. We will therefore be taking a different approach to our Easter Adventure this year, with a few changes to our original event listing to minimise risk to any of our visitors.
We are taking precautionary measures to ensure that there is continual movement of people through the park and no areas where a large group would be in a confined space. For visitor safety, there will no longer be a viewing area for hatching chicks, and our actors won’t be interacting for this event which will reduce large gatherings of crowds and physical contact.
All activities are outdoor, so families can enjoy our Easter experience without the stress of navigating confined public spaces. Spending time in green space can benefit both your mental and physical wellbeing. It can improve your mood, reduce feelings of stress or anger, and make you feel more relaxed.
We recommend all visitors, especially schools and groups, follow guidance on prevention methods, which includes ensuring the washing hands regularly and covering your mouth or nose with tissues when coughing or sneezing.
In consideration of this change to our Easter event, we will be charging off-peak prices of this event instead of peak. For those of our visitors who have already pre-booked their tickets at peak price, we will refund the difference upon attending. We are committed to providing the best customer experience. We acknowledge that travel plans will change at short notice. Online bookings can be amended to a later date at no extra charge, to do so email firstname.lastname@example.org
Bookings will be transferrable only for sessions of equivalent value, but no refunds will be given in accordance to our Terms & Conditions.
