Is it just me, or is Bertie and Boo's Adventure Island become a complete rip-off? I don't go there all that often, partly because each time I do - the prices have gone up. At the end of June, they got rid of the hourly time slots so you now have to purchase an all-day pass no matter how little time you'd like to spend, and given how small the place it is, it's asking a bit much in my opinion. That on top of overpriced coffee and cakes, and paying for babies who aren't even crawling.
Regardless, I sent my mother there today with my two girls as I needed to get a lot of work done around the house. They couldn't stay long in the morning because of the baby's nap, but they thought they'd return after lunch and stay out of the sun and the heat. But when they tried to go back, there was a sign on the door, saying that in honour of the great weather, they'd decided to close at 3:30 pm today! Of course, there was no mention of this when my mum purchased two all-day passes. Honestly, we cheated - and obviously they did not shut because of the weather, as it's been sunny for ages. They could have at least been honest.
