“If you can't head to Barry's because it is raining by the bucket load, consider the Jet Centre. In the town of Coleraine about 15 mins' drive away, it is family-friendly, weather-proof, offers an 8-screen cinema, a game arcade, 10 pin bowling, plus one of Northern Ireland's largest Indoor Soft Play & Party centres. The outdoor mini golf is an excellent 18-hole course over landscaped areas. You can easily spend half a day there with your weens.”
