Big kids hit the ultimate playground
It was lads vs ladies - one action-packed experience after another at Daytona Raceway in Brewtown, Upper Hutt
First out of the grid, of course, was a big old blast of go-karting. While Taylor reckoned he had this in the bag, there was some pretty tough competition - with Charlotte and the boys pushing each lap to the limit. Even the full-face helmets couldn’t hide the thrill on their faces as they drifted corners, revved the straights and fought over every inch.
Ice skating offered hilarious thrills and spills… with a few lads cooling their jets and their bums on the ice while Charlotte (literally) skated circles around everyone in the rink! The baby seals got a lot of love from those wanting to take things easy or ‘needing a little support’.
But as the action met the alley, it was Quinny who stepped up with some flash-as styles… doing a big pro leg-slide as he fired his ball down for the first strike of the night! With a very clear win ahead, the runners up let him do his thing, while they enjoyed a few good laughs and trick shots with the neon coloured balls.
Can’t believe they had so many great activities in there!
And then it was ‘bounce-a-clock’… hitting the trampoline park, where Charlotte and Manuela settled for a good few somersaults and flips, while the boys attempted to fulfill their slam dunk dreams with a bit of vertical assistance.
To end the night off with a Huttload of bang, last stop was paintball. After a multi-stop day of competitive frustrations, it was time to let them all out! There was much spraying, much action and no clear winner - with all parties coming out impressively covered in brightly coloured ‘combat badges’ - with Taylor sporting a great ‘splotch’ right across the face!
All in all, it was a jam-packed day of big action, big laughs and big fun - with the team left feeling exhausted it was clearly time for cold brews and comfy seats that the rest of Brewtown had to offer.
