Here at Go Bananas children can have an amazing adventure whilst travelling through the Aztec ruins of Funky Monkey's jungle home!

There are many sights to see and challenges to conquer throughout the 3 levels of the Aztec Adventure area. 
Do you dare to ride the waves of 4 lane water Astra slide? Be careful that crocodiles don't catch you at the bottom. Have you got the balance and nerve to navigate your way across the wobbly planks, like a pirate? Tread carefully over the stepping stones and the clear glass floor; before swinging through ruins; just like Indiana Jones.

Tiny Town is a safe separate environment for those young adventurers that are aged 4 and under. The area is full of smaller versions of the Aztec Adventure obstacles to help the young adventurers get ready for the challenges they may face in the future. They can cook up a feast in Funky Monkey's kitchen, bounce away on the 6 mini trampolines and navigate the roads in our wide range of KiddiCars, walkers and strollers. There is also the interactive EyePlay Zone, where they can score the winning goal, pop the balloons, make the balls roll and for the budding musicians, they can play the piano keys. Dora’s Disco also awaits for all the dancers out there. The great thing about Tiny Town is that the toddlers rule! Adults can enter the area and interact with their little monkeys, but only the little monkeys are allowed to play!
