Let out your inner child for Father’s Day

Let’s face it, every parent wants to spend that little bit of extra time with their family outside of those lazy weekends and half-term holidays. After all, you only get to experience your child growing up once and make those special memories.

In fact, studies have shown that as many as 78% of parents with young children wished they could spend more time with their kids – a surprising amount that certainly took us off guard.

Naturally, many of these parents who are short of family time are the hard-working dads who go out into the working world every day to make sure they and their children have a comfortable and exciting childhood filled with boundless opportunities. And if we’re being honest, it’s about time they caught a break.

Which is exactly why thortful is celebrating this year’s Father’s Day with a golden ticket giveaway for 10 lucky dads!

Offering five unique dad-kid bonding experiences, each ticket is the perfect opportunity for a father to get that sought-after extra family time while also putting their serious parenting face aside for a day and letting out their inner child!

All you have to do to enter is order a Father’s Day card from the thortful collection and you’re in with a chance of finding that magical golden ticket when you open that carefully (or humorously) picked card from your kids.

But just what are these must-have dad experiences we’ve picked out? Take a look below to find out!

Our golden ticket giveaway activities

Excited to pick your favourite Father’s Day activity? Thought so! Here are all the details you need to know for our five picked activities so you can start planning around this year’s Father’s Day celebrations:

1. Paintballing for two

First off the bat, we have three redeemable codes for an afternoon of action-packed, dad-kid paintballing, filled with exhilarating battlefield scenarios that are sure to get the blood pumping and create a memorable moment or two.

Kitted out from head to toe in protective gear, you and your child will be given all the safety briefing you need to step into the arena and take on your opponents in a series of tactical missions – from securing ancient jungle pyramids to protecting the ‘president’ as they dash for safety!

At the end of the day, you’ll be given a debrief by the marshal team on-site and even partake in an awards ceremony to celebrate everyone’s achievements. And don’t worry about Mum feeling left out. If she’s not already planned an afternoon of peaceful pampering, then she can cheer you both on from one of the viewing stands!

Please note, however, that the minimum age requirement for this activity is 12 years and up, though certain locations in Wales and England have an 18+ requirement, so be sure to check venue age limits before selecting this activity, especially if you have young children.

2. Paintballing experience for four

Exactly like our paintballing for two experience, but providing an intense, thrill-seeking afternoon of fun for the whole family, we also have three redeemable codes for our four-person paintballing prize!

Either sticking as a team (or pairing up mum and dad against the kids), you’ll be equipped with a 400-shot battle pack for the day, giving you all the ammo you need to partake in this activity’s strategic games that will hopefully see you conquering the competition and claiming the top accolade in the award ceremony at the end.

Once again, the minimum age requirement for this activity is 12 years and up, though the centre in Lincolnshire has a minimum age restriction of 16, while Norfolk’s centre has an 18+ age requirement for anyone planning on attending.

3. Love Dad Experience Day

If you’ve looked at the above two activities and thought; “Sounds fun but that’s not really my thing”, then don’t worry, because our Love Dad Experience Day voucher has you covered for all manner of fantastic days out.

Whether it’s an adventurous day out skiing or air rifle shooting, treating your tastebuds to a brewery tour and tasting session or luxury gourmet dinner, or turning the adrenaline up a notch with a high-speed car driving experience, our dad package is sure to have at least one activity that is right up your alley.

And while we only have one code on offer for this package, it more than makes up for this with the sheer number of activities you can pick from – in fact, there are over 73 different options in total!

Of course, each activity naturally has its own terms and conditions associated with age restrictions and entry requirements, so make sure you take the time to read these carefully before committing to an activity.

4. Competitive gaming

Competition is the name of the game when it comes to our competitive social activity day, which once again makes up for its single redemption code by offering 21 uniquely different experiences that come with a fun and competitive edge.

From a console gaming extravaganza boasting games on all the latest consoles to various simulator games that come with various difficulty levels and themes, and even indoor axe throwing for those looking to test their lumberjack skills, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to which single activity you want to spend your day doing.

But these activities are not just restricted to you alone, as we’ve made sure to include space for at least one other lucky family member to join you in whatever option takes your fancy.

Once more, however, it’s worth noting every activity on our list does have certain day criteria and age restrictions that you’ll need to bear in mind before booking as some are not suitable for younger children.

5. Elite football stadium tour

Last, but not least, for the football-mad dads out there, we’ve managed to get our hands on two codes for an elite football stadium tour with some of the biggest-name premier league teams out there.

Including the likes of Tottenham, Man City, Chelsea, and more, if your dad is a huge fan of any of the premier league’s most well-known teams, then we’ve no doubt that they’ll be delighted to have the chance to tour the very grounds their favourite club calls home.

And it’s not just a one-stop tour of the stadium interior itself, oh no. This is a behind-the-scenes tour, meaning you’ll be privy to the inner workings of your preferred club’s venue, catching a glimpse of the daily operations taking place, exploring off-limits areas like the changing rooms, tunnel, and manager’s office, and learning all about the club’s history.

But, and for the final time, we promise, please do check the criteria of each stadium tour before booking, as not all tours are available for children of younger ages.
