The whole week prior to our visit we were all buzzing with excitement, at the thought of our visit to Cadburys world. Saturday couldn’t come fast enough for all of us.
Finally after a long drawn out wait Saturday was here *Yippee*! After getting the kiddies ready and piling them into the car we set off. We spent an excruciating 2 hours drive to Cadburys World with Holly going off on one in the back seat. Thankfully an hour or so into our journey she fell asleep. *Pheeew*.
Moments after Holly woke up we had arrived at Cadburys world. We then headed inside to the ticket queue where John showed the tiller our voucher. She looked at it before handing him an itinerary brochure. Then off we went to explore. The first stop was the gift shop which was just opposite the entrance tills.
When we were done we went back outside to go and find the African Adventure play area. However right there by the playground was the 4d chocolate adventure, so we did that first as there were no queues. Into the lift our little family went. The man in the lift got us to look up at its ceiling as we travelled down. There we saw the Cadburys Parrot trying to avoid things and dropping his mini eggs.
The lift came to a stop where we got off into a little room where the last question of the quiz was being asked. After choosing the correct answer we all were then taken into the 4d chocolate adventure.
The 4d chocolate adventure was fantastic Ella loved every moment of it. Holly on the other did not like it one bit! In her words “I is a little bit scared”.
As we tried to make our way out we found ourselves in a games room.
After we were finished playing games we headed for the play area. Even though it wasn’t the warmest of days the girls still enjoyed playing on the toys.
Whilst Holly and I were in the smaller play area for 2-5 year olds we spotted Freddo frog and Caramel bunny, so we wondered out of the play area to go and see them. When we found out they were posing for pictures I phoned John to bring Ella who was just in the play area behind them.
Once I had finished taking a picture of the girls with Freddo and Caramel we headed back to the small play area.
Having played there for quite some time we decided to move on and explore a little more of the trail. Next stop was the Bournville experience which was like a little museum and it also had some more historic video clips.
After that we decided to do another trail but we were unable to find it so we headed into Bournville.
Oh but not before having a little bit of fun with the fallen autumn leaves. Ella was throwing and kicking them about as I tried to photograph her.
Before we knew it we had to move on as we were running out of time. So off we dashed into Bournville for a quick nose around. We had a little nose around this one shop with really pretty souvenirs in.
Before heading out again to look at some squirrels and have a quick play with yet some more leaves.
Next thing we knew daddy was hurrying us back as it was nearly time for our Cadburys self explored exhibition tour. Holly really didn’t enjoy this as it was to dark for her liking as we went through the Aztec Jungle and the Journey to Europe. The Cadburys story wasn’t much better for her as the holographic head really freaked her out. So all we heard was “I scared. I is a little bit scared” once again. *Shame I felt so bad for her*. I ended up giving her one of the cadburys chocolate bars we were given just before we entered the Aztec Jungle. This sort of helped calm her a little bit. Even though she still let us know between mouthful that she was still scared.
A little further along the way Ella got her picture taken in front of a great big green wall. Where they super imposed her riding a chocolate wave on a cadburys bar.
As we continued on our tour we saw how they chocolate was wrapped and packaged by the great big machines. I must admit the smell was just amazing.
The moment Holly saw the Cadabra ride she was happy and couldn’t wait to board it. It really was a lovely little ride filled with cute little coco bean characters in a magical setting. *It really made me wonder why the whole of cadburys couldn’t have been like this*.
Towards the end of our tour we were each given a little cup of melted chocolate with our choice of sweets in it.
With our tour now being over we excited via the gift shop.
Holly being obsessed with Caramel since having met her got a Caramel bunny for her souvenir, and Ella chose a Cadburys Parrot as she had taken a shine to him. The girls also each got a ruler with their names on it and some chocolate freddos for a treat on the school runs.
Although we had some lovely moments at Cadburys World I doubt we’ll ever go back. Because if I’m honest it was really disappointing and the price for what there was quite frankly wasn’t worth it!
We were luck my mom gave us the family tickets she had won, cause if we had actually paid for it we would have wanted our money back. *Yes in our opinion it was that bad*.
